MHI in German

German MHI

Awesome in every language. 🙂

Edit: and in the WTF category, I’m the #3 Fantasy author on all of Amazon right now. http://www.amazon.com/author-rank/Fantasy/books/16190/ref=ntt_at_kar_B002D68HL8  It goes George Martin, Neil Gaiman, and then me.  But I bet I’m still not a *real* author. 😀

 

EDIT 2: Ah, the ranking is because MHV is currently the #4 bestseller in all of fantasy. The audiobook is on sale right now. http://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Books-Fantasy/zgbs/books/16190/ref=zg_bs_nav_b_2_25

Since these lists update hourly, I will enjoy it while it lasts. 🙂

  1. Die, monster! Die!

    Yep, that’s about right:-)

  2. Well, Clamps thinks so…. ( evil grin)

  3. Gorgeous cover! And you are so a real author. Don’t doubt yourself 😉

    • I know I am. I make a decent living doing this. I just like to have fun at the expense of the literati hate mailers, where no matter what I will never be a *real* author. 🙂

      • I’m teasing you… you are my hero, sir, in how you have done this, and yes, even how you handle your blog. I don’t anticipate ever seeing the sort of success for my work that you have, but I know it’s worth trying, seeing what you’ve worked so hard for paying off. It’s always a pleasure to read your “not-writing,” too!

      • You’ll never be a “real” author like Clamps? Yay! Save us from the desert of the “real”!

  4. Dude, you are above freaking J.R.R. freaking Tolkien.

    TOLKIEN!

    *HIGH FIVE*

  5. Español? (Spanish?)

  6. How’d you get so high up the list without sparkly vampires?

    • by actually writing something worth reading
      example- and I quote “In real life, vampires only sparkle when they’re on fire.”
      ― Larry Correia, Monster Hunter Vendetta
      and
      “I’ve got a chainsaw with my name on it in my workshop,” Milo told us happily. “If I’m ever killed by undead, I want you guys to chop me up with it. It’s a good chainsaw.”
      “I reckon it is, Milo. I would be honored to chop your head off,” Sam said.”
      ― Larry Correia, Monster Hunter International

  7. Damn, you just dropped to fifth… That sucks, but you ARE a real author, regardless of what they say! 🙂

  8. Well, you dropped two spots, but you’re still ahead of that no-name guy Brandon Sanderson. Between the two of you, there might be a “real” author there. *eye roll*

    You realize that according to your second link, MHV is the bestselling Audible book, right?

    But you’re still not a “real” author. You haven’t won a Tony… Oscar… what are those awards called again? The one that a select group of elitists say defines literary SF? Audies? I’m so confused…

  9. But who’ll be ready Larry Correia in 10 years? ….Oh, it seems everybody will be.

    • At the moment exactly ten years into the future, I might not be reading anything at all. Supposing Mr. Correia keeps to at least a third of his current pace, and the economy holds together enough, it is very likely that he will have a new book up inside of a year from then. If I am still alive then, I suspect I will at least try to read that book.

  10. GREAT cover! Gritty and bad ass. Congrats on the rankings, well deserved.

  11. The only one wearing suit with guns in MHI is MCB guys, especially Franks in early part. So this isn’t totally inaccurate .

    • Its possible that Owen had to wear a suit for his accounting job, before he joined MHI, and he carried a gun then.

  12. I recall at one point Mr. Correia that you said your family name is Portuguese.

    Ever wonder if you per chance are related to “Abbe Jose Correia da Serra” who was a friend to Thomas Jefferson? Seems to me you might want to look in to that. 🙂

    He was a botanist & co-founder of the Academy of Science in Lisbon.

    • No idea. Probably not though because at that time period my Correia ancestors were in the Azores rather than the mainland. But that would be cool. 🙂

  13. That is a sweet cover. Is it supposed to be the MCB guys, or is that simply a coincidence? Not that it really matters – I gave up on expecting really accurate covers decades ago, the more important question is whether it is a cover that will sell copies.

  14. Hi Larry,
    Looks like you made the Audible Best of List for 2013 too in the Fantasy Category for Warbound. Congratulations!

    Scott

  15. Any German experts around to give a good translation? Google say that in English, a literal translation is “The Monster, Which I Called.”

    • The translation is correct.
      It refers to “Die Geister die ich rief” which translates to “The Ghosts that I called” which in english is called: Scrooged.
      And I stoped reading german Books. The translateions toake way to long and I prefer the original texts.

  16. Congrats. Perhaps a design competetion is in order as your photo section is blank in the rankings. All in good taste of course.

  17. One wonders at the timeframe for Amazon rankings. You’re now (1 day later) number 28. Hourly sales ranking?

  18. Rankings? Meh. Just count your stacks of dollar bills (and don’t forget to flash them at the critics). Your stuff has the most memorable scenes/quotes since Jim Butcher’s Dresden files. Keep up the good work.

  19. So awosome, I bet the Germans will love your books.

  20. Love your books.Reread all of them at least 4 times.Wish you could write faster.First time I learned about Mormons was when I heard 20
    years or so ago that Orson Scot Card is Mormon and that his fiction is
    influenced by his religion.At that time I was refuge in “religious”civil war
    and can remember thinking how I wish politicians of my ex country were
    influenced by their alleged religion.I actually met you in person during last Comicon.Mr.Card and you amongst authors I read did a lot to lift burden of hatred for religion and humanity in general I felt grooving up.Now as grown man I feel at peace with world and religion due in large part to ppl like you and Mr.Card.You write fiction and it is great one.You also make me,amongst many others both wish and try to be better human being.Thanks for entertainment and ethos which underlines it.

  21. BTW Larry, you mentioned back in your post https://larrycorreia.wordpress.com/2013/04/11/a-great-article-about-the-politics-of-sci-fifantasy/ that Hard Magic is coming out in Chinese. I do read Chinese, and was wondering which format? Simplified or traditional, and is it available in Kindle format?

    • I have no idea. My publisher told me that it had been sold, and they told me the name of the translator, but I can’t remember who. It was coming out in Taiwan if that helps.

      • If it’s Taiwan, it’s traditional. Damn, now I have to buy your books again (already bought Baen electronic version, the audible book, and now Chinese edition).

      • Please post the Chinese cover when you got ’em around.

  22. I would like to see the Chinese cover art also, bet it rocks.

  23. Larry, the gnome needs to be a T-shirt!

  24. Hey I realy like your first book but I have so littel time 2 read that i wanted 2 ask u when the second audio book is coming out in german because it is easier 2 listen.
