Gratuitous Book Plug, Get it Before Your Friends!

It’s not all that often that His Imperial Majesty throws out whole-heartedly endorsements of literature, because we’re a picky old bastard (and arrogant too), so we really have to be primed to go that far.

Of course “not often” does imply that exceptions exist, and this is one such exception.

When we run across a book that is A) written by somebody whom we personally know and whose work we’ve read before, B) somebody whose research is impeccable, and who doesn’t hate it when it isn’t?, C) somebody who’s a Great American, a True Patriot and a curmudgeonly raconteur to boot, D) somebody who knows how to tell a story that just keeps dragging you in and last, but not least, E) happens to be one of the select few near and dear friends whom we’d not only share our foxhole but also our Scotch with, it’s pretty well nigh impossible not to throw it out there.

Some of you may recognize the name of the author. Those who do not have our word that it’s somebody you’d want to read, have a beer or a hundred with and stay on the right side of. He’s not the Imperial Firearms Advisor for nothing, you know.

And, at $3.99 (Kindle edition, which is all that’s available at the moment but PCs can read that too), what’ve you got to lose?

For his other published works, here’s a link.

Check it out!

    AWESOME! :em01: I’ve gone so long without my “fix” of Kim’s rants, I dunno if I could handle any now! Glad to see he’s made something with all his time (damn shit on the corporate lawyers who wallow in the trough of liability and it’s squashing of liberty and responsibility!)

    LC LOBO growls and barks:

    I’d love to read it. But I have none of those type of accounts. Much less the money to put in them.

    Cortillaen growls and barks:

    Well, who am I to argue with the Emperor’s recommendation? Ka-one-clicked. Besides, it looks like a good read, and my beloved kindle could use some new material. The Scarlet Pimpernel’s good, but it makes me glad to have the instant dictionary for all the archaic words.
    If I may suggest another name to any of my Kindle-(or pretty much any computer device)-bearing brethren, give Sabrina Chase’s work a glance, too. Bad Cat Robot writes as well as she snarks.

    I love the “Buy It With One Click” button. Sucks, however, that my Kindle Fire doesn’t have the WhisperNet feature that caused me to love Kindle. Ah, well.

    Bezos, you listening?

    ALL-FUCKING-RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ll be loading a whole bunch of Kim this afternoon! As The Emperor said, if you don’t know this man, you bloody well should. If you do, I know you’ve missed his writings. :em01: :em01: :em01: :em01:

    Sentry growls and barks:

    Hm, odd that this should come up just as I’m reaching the climax of Neuromancer. It’s funny though, as soon as I read the term “data mining”, I flew into a rage. Probably has something to do with the INT O JOUTs at my unit using me and my guys to do their data mining for them.

    Did you know that Yasser Houlihan is the leader of the Leninista drug cartel in the Oaxaca region of Mexico? aSLt Lazyfuck didn’t.

    Done. Now I have an excuse to spend time in front of my PC.
