HELL'S FOUNDATIONS QUIVER: One of the Best Book Titles, ever, from a SF Grand-master (IMHO Weber is the "Great One")
One of my all-time favorite authors, David Weber, just released the latest installment in his SAFEHOLD SERIES. Think Martin Luther's Reformation meets I-Robot...with furlongs of British novelist Patrick Robinson stirred in for good measure. Military-style, historically inspired, Space Opera doesn't get any better. And there's plenty of Naval warfare and cannon fodder too. The books are a treat (though they require a large commitment and a push-through mentality).
HELL'S FOUNDATIONS QUIVER has to be one of the best titles I've seen, for any book, ever. Serious props to the title committee. Love it!
Not familiar with the SAFEHOLD SERIES? Please rectify that now. See here for more information on the series and all things David Weber.
I'll be at MileHiCon 2015, October 23rd - 25th.
Please stop by and sell hello. You can catch a number of great panels on just about every subject in the 'verse. I'm on four panels and moderating a fifth.
I'll be at the author's co-op table during Friday, 4:00pm - 6:00pm, signing books too.
A new friend of mine and fellow military SF author Jason Kent will also be there. Be sure to stop by his booth and check out his work.
Panels I'm On:
Friday, October 23
Saturday, October 24
Sunday, October 25
Sessions I'm Moderating:

I hope to see you there!
Cover Reveal! INDOMITABLE, a Hardcore Cover for a Hardcore Military SF novel, hits shelves July 2016
Award-winning artist Stephan Martiniere hit the cover of INDOMITABLE out of the stratosphere. I'm over Montana's three moons about this cover, which features Lieutenant Promise Paen of the RAW-MC in her mechsuit. The rifle depicted is the Marine Corps, 3rd Evolution, Extended-Range Pulse Rifle, or MC3-ERP (pronounced Mc-Eerp) - standard issue light weapon of the RAW-MC ( in case you were wondering).
Wow, wow, WOW!
INDOMITABLE hits shelves July 26, 2016. Let the countdown begin! Three weeks before that, Tor releases the paperback of UNBREAKABLE.
To Stephan: Brillian. Mechtastic. Makes me want to suit up and go three rounds with Iron Man.
To Tor Books and my intrepid, cosplay-wearing editor, Marco Palmieri: Thanks for the bang-up job. Truly top-drawer publishing.
Please check out my newly redesigned website, www.wcbauers.com, for more information on the book and for the latest news about Promise and the RAW-MC.
