Summary

Larry Correia, the New York Times best-selling author of the wildly popular Monster Hunter International and Grimnoir Chronicles series of no-holds-barred urban fantasy and the Dead Six trilogy of military adventure novels, now sets his sights on the short story form.

Together for the first time, 14 action-packed tales of demons, monsters, vampires, and cosmic horrors too terrible to name - and the men and women who take them all down. Oh, and toss in an interdimensional insurance salesman for good measure. 

You'll also find: An elven princess from the pages of Monster Hunter International on a mission to redeem her people. A samurai pirate with a blood vendetta against an extremely large sea beast. And a magic-wielding PI who walks the mean streets of Detroit. 

Journey back to the origins of Monster Hunter International in "Bubba Shackleford's Professional Monster Hunters". Uncover the origin of one of Dead Six's central characters in "Sweothi City". And celebrate the holidays with the Grimnoir Chronicle's own Jake Sullivan in "Detroit Christmas".

I tired, I really did

Correia is my favorite contemporary author and I’ve enjoyed almost everything he’s put out. But I could not get past the narrator on this one.
I know this isn’t a dramatized audio book, but there is some balance between narrating and performance I was expecting, especially with characters from stories where the same narrator was used.

Sands was clear and articulate, but it sounded like he was reading directions out of a manual.
I even fast-forwarded to different chapters to make sure I wasn’t being purely reactive, but just couldn’t enjoy it. Would’ve been better to have had the past narrators from their respective audio books.

Was Oliver not available?

I couldn't even get through the first story. Was the V.A. not aware that Earl Harbinger is from ALABAMA? I'll skip the audio and go buy the print book. Good luck dude, but this is not the project for you.

Irritating Narrator

The stories are good, the narrator is not. His inflection and drawn out vowels are incredibly annoying and grating.

I...just...couldn't...finish

Sorry Larry, you lost potential fans because the narrator was terrible. I am afraid new readers (listeners) won't get the opportunity to appreciate your work. I have listened to several Correia books & love his sence of quirkieness & his story telling. Sadly, Basil Sands ruined these stories. I do not know Mr Sands & am sure he is a great guy but he should not be reading any books to anyone. I probably couldn't do much better but that is why I listen to books & don't apply for work narrating books.

Using Joy Behar is against the Geneva Convention

I didn't read enough of the description to realize this was a group of short stories, but just that it was Larry Correia. He is one of my favorite authors and this book did not disappoint. His writing reflects a sense of humor I truly appreciate.

Terrible

The narrator put me to sleep. Please never let Basil Sands narrate another Larry Correa book again! There is no separation of characters. I could not finish the book. TERRIBLE!!!
