Baen Books for February

First out of the jiffy bag is MONSTER HUNTER MEMOIRS: SINNERS by Larry Correia and John Ringo, $7.99 Baen, 9781481482875. This sends Chad Oliver Gardenier to New Orleans to take on the latest crop of loup garoueaux, fifty foot upright walking crocodiles and more voodoo spells than the law allows. Since Chad is a bounty hunter, he has to stay alive in order to collect his money.

Wen Spencer was such a voracious reader when he was younger that he ran out of things to read and starting to create his own stories and eventually, he wrote them down. PROJECT ELFHOME, $7.99, Baen, 9781481482905, collects all of his stories into one volume for all of his friends and readers to have in one volume. This is not the Pittsburgh we know. It is a confluence of four worlds meeting and overlapping in Elfhome. And as they are known to say, no one will ever be the same.

The late Poul Anderson was one of the creators of the space opera that I grew up with. Nicholas Van Rijn, Dominic Flandry, The Psychotechnic League, and others are continuing to meet fresh eyes thanks to Baen Books. THE COMPLETE PSYCHOTECHNIC LEAGUE, VOLUME 2, Baen, $10, 9781481483063 is the latest addition to the reprinting of nine fabulous stories. This volume includes the hard to find "The Snows of Ganymede". The Institute has put an end to war and peace covers the globe and the galaxy is the next stop. War will raise its ugly head in a way that shows Poul Anderson at his best.

For those fans of alternate history, you will be pleased to know that 1637: THE VOLGA RULES by Eric Flint, Paula Goodlett, and Gorg Huff is now available. The Russian serfs want to follow the idea that all men are created equal and practiced by the "up-timers" from Grantville. This will be a tough time for the serfs and the czar as liberty tries to make an entry 300 years ahead of schedule. Grab this one in order to see how the writers handle this situation. Baen, $25, 9781481483032.

The other releases are: MISSION TO METHONE by Les Johnson, $16, 9781481483056 and BRINGERS OF HELL by Travis S. Taylor, $23,9781481483049.

Remember great books come from Baen!
