Reading Assignment

Okay folks, listen up.

Put down whatever you’re reading. Drop that politically correct, namby-pamby, mealymouthed, estrogen soaked, Oprah approved, go have yourself a good cry homo-lit piece of trash that you’ve been brainwashed into thinking is a worthwhile piece of entertainment and go read Ghost. The fine folks at Baen, (who think if you give away old books, that people will buy more new books), don’t seem to be moving too fast to disallow the posting of their CDs).

It’s got everything! Huge heaping helpings of kick-assery, damsels in distress, kinky sex, political snark, more kicking of the ass, X rated humor, wisecracking SEALs, air combat, chemical warfare and a nuclear strike.

…and that’s the first third of the book! It only ratchets up the wacky heroics and freaky sex from there.

I’m serious. It’s the Mack Bolan or Remo Williams for our generation. Except that Ghost makes Mack and Remo look like Europeans. Jack Bauer couldn’t hold Ghost’s man-purse. Chuck Norris spends all night thinking up jokes about Ghost. If Hollywood even contemplated a movie treatment of Ghost, they’d spontaneously combust from the high levels of raw American manliness that they’re unused to coping with.

In case you haven’t already guessed, I recommend!

    Well, I clicked on the link, expecting to be told where to buy it, and instead I get to download it, for free? How do they make money?

    Oh well, I’m looking forward to it anyway…

    I’ve been reading the series since Ghost hit Baen’s website. It is simply not possible for me to say enough good things about these books.
    As for how they make their money, on top of downloading these books, I’ve also bought the hardcovers.
    Baen’s free library (http://www.baen.com/library/) has a lot of other books that you are not only allowed to download for free, you can share them as well. Want newer books? Or the rest of the series that were offered for free in the library? Check out: http://www.webscription.net/ where you can buy electronic versions of lots of books. Including Advanced Reader Copies of the latest books, before they’ve even been to final editing. Which is, I’ll admit, a completely disgusting method of getting money from those fans who just can’t wait for the book to hit the shelves. Hasn’t stopped me at all from buying the last three “Paladin of Light” (Ghost Series) books long before they hit the shelves. I’m addicted to these books, and pretty much anything written by John Ringo.

    Dude, have you ever read Remo Williams? Still I’ll give Ghost a shot even though I didn’t care for his try at a Bolo book.

    What was there not to like about the Bolo book? That was…. incredibly, sadly, brilliant.

    And I hope not prophetic, but I’m cynically afraid it is.
