Because nobody else was brave enough to tell the truth about cannibal sea lice. In less than one week. With no editing. Or cover artist.
Friend of the Burger, Mr Lambright has released the final volume of his military sci fi trilogy, The Valley. Best cover so far, I reckon.
You can check it out here (universal link), and read the extract below.
For those on my mailing list I'll be sending a blast out later today when the whole series goes free for a day.
But you should really think about crossing Jason's palm with a few coins anyway. I will be.

I think I'm going to like this ship:
Like all the interstellar-capable warships of the Royal Armadalen Navy, the Defiant was bigger on the inside than out. Not impossibly so. Its relative internal volume was only three times greater than the external dimensions of the stealth frigate, and a third of that was given over to the hyperspace buffer between the outer hull, a thick protective shell of exotic dark matter, and the discrete pocket universe of the vessel proper; the crew quarters and amenities, the engineering, command and combat decks, and stowage.
Hardy had served on HMAS Daring, an older ship of the same class, during the Javan War, and she was quietly pleased to see the improvements made since then. She had a cabin to herself for starters, an unheard of luxury during the war, even on the navy’s capital ships, the dreadnoughts and titan cruisers that sortied from Armadale System and fought their way into the heart of the Javan Empire.

The audiobook of the Stalin's Hammer sequence is out! As a big consumer of audiobooks this makes me very happy, and not just for the royalties coming my way. I had a quick listen to the sample, and it seems pretty fucking schmick.
I've also released the complete series in one volume which I've made free for a couple of days so anyone who bought the individual titles can grab a copy without feeling they've been double-charged.
I've also just pulled the lever for a print on demand copy, so that should be available in a couple of weeks. A Girl in Time has done better than I expected in print, especially given the price, so that's an experiment that seems to be working.
If you're not an Audible customer, you can sneakily get the book for free by trying the service via this link.
I'm mostly working on AlienSideBoob and The Cruel Stars at the moment, but a good result for the Stalin's Hammer collection will set up WW 3.1 nicley.
And you know what garauntees a good result?
You know what you must do.

I like this Northrop Grumman drone for WW 3.1. It sounds a lot like the original Big Eye series from Weapons of Choice.
The flying-wing design incorporates twin counter-rotating propellers mounted on Tern's nose. The propellers would lift the aircraft, move it into position for horizontal flight, and then operate again vertically upon landing.
The shift to drone technology for ISR mission reflects the Navy's strategy of allowing surface ships to conduct surveillance and targeting missions without the aid of land- or carrier-based patrol aircraft. Tern also is intended to support Marine expeditionary missions using long-range, high-endurance unmanned aircraft.
The Navy envisions deploying Tern on Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, which have several helicopter pads but no runways. Researchers also are hoping that the program can save money by allowing ships to host the aircraft without any significant modifications.
