Live Free or Die: Troy Rising I

As I march through the stack of books I’ve got to read, this one caught my attention because I’d forgotten that it was inspired by one of my favorite web comics.  It’s actually John Ringo’s take on the early history of humanity in the universe of Howard Tayler’s Schlock Mercenary (start at the beginning, you’ve got over 10 years of reading to do).  [amazon_link id=”1439133972″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Live Free or Die[/amazon_link] shows us how humans got introduced to the larger galaxy, and got soundly thumped a few times in the process, before standing on their own two feet.  If you’re a Schlock fan, you owe it to yourself to give this series a read.
