    I am looking for miliitary scifi books. I have read The lost fleet series and The starship series.

    I'll be more enthusiastic about encouraging thinking outside the box when there's evidence of any thinking going on inside it. (Terry Prattchet)

    Do you have a specific book in mind that you are looking for? I might have it.

    I'm not into military sci-fi but I love books about the army like W.E.B Griffin's Brotherhood of War series.

    I have not read the botherhood series, but I have read the corps, presidential agent, the OSS series. There are awesome.


    No I dont have a title in mind. I am looking for recommendations

    Wow..I haven't read those books. I want to read Honor Bound Series of Griffin but I can't find paperback in bookstores.

    I can't recommend military sci-fi as I haven't read any of them.

    I guess I should have mentioned that one. I have read all of the ender /bean books.

    If you happened to end up on the pirate bay and in the ebooks section and you searched sci-fi and sorted by size, you might find a big enough library as a single file to keep you happy for quite a while
    I haven't actually downloaded anything but I did see it there, IIRC it was about 8.5 gigs



    Also, Baen has a ton of free Ebooks as mentioned, I would recommend grabbing all of them, they are sized properly for ebook readers and good with proper covers and proofreading and such which a lot of the "free" books are sadly lacking.

    many of them are military Sci-Fi, good ones are the Hammer Slammers series and Lt Leary series and any of the ones by Andre Norton.
    a google for free baen ebooks will bring up a list of all of them.
    Most are good, and they seem to offer a whole series often rather then just the usual first book is free crap.
    And the formats are nice too, with a nice cover and everything.


    EDIT: http://www.bonham.net.nz/SF/Baen/WS/ws_books_dl.html

    There is a complete list of the ebooks in any format.

    I used DownthemAll in firefox and had it try every .LRF link, then save them to a folder.
    worked great
