Of books and games

Ken Burnside of Ad Astra Games chimes in:

So, one of my other gigs – beyond making Cool Space Combat Games, is
being a science checker for SF writers for Baen.  I got asked by Vox Day
to write a science article for their new anthology series “Riding the
Red Horse” – which released yesterday. In its first day of
release, it’s done impressively – it’s climbing up the paid Kindle
listings and is a category leader in Military SF and SF in general.

Ken’s “The Hot Equations: Thermodynamics and Military Science Fiction” is a must-read for any science fiction author. And check this out… Ad Astra is about to come out with the Traveller version of Squadron Strike!

From the most recent review of RIDING THE RED HORSE: “I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of mil sci-fi short stories and essays on war. Each
story left me wanting more of the universe in which it takes place (my
favourite of the shorts was the last one: “Turncoat” by Steve Rzasa,),
and each essay made me marvel at the genius of the respective author. I
wouldn’t consider myself a military theory buff, but the essays in this
collections certainly awakened a hunger in me to find out more and
explore the world of war-gaming.”
