JOHNSTONE COUNTRY. WHERE IT'S NEVER QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT. Springfield Model 1880. Trapdoor rifle with bayonet. Vengeance optional. With a handful of murderous rogues, Captain Jed Foster has run off with four wagons containing new Springfield rifles, bayonets, and ammunition meant to resupply the troops at Fort Bowie in Arizona Territory. Foster plans to sell the weapons to the highest bidder-whether it's Apaches, Mexican revolutionaries, or Confederate veterans who still dream of destroying the Union. But that's the least of Foster's problems . . . His junior officer, Lieutenant Grat Holden, is coming after him. With the help of an ornery ex-sergeant known as 'Hard Rock' Masterson and fiery guerilla fighter Soledad, the young lieutenant will face off with war chiefs, banditos, and cutthroat outlaws. That's just for starters. Then he's got to take down a man who has enough guns for a small army . . . Live Free. Read Hard.

High Adventure on the China Seas For readers who enjoy tales of naval adventure in non-fiction or fiction this book will not disappoint. The British author managed to squander his substantial inheritance in 4 years and turned to life as a merchant seamen in the latter part of 19th century. Eventually he found himself aboard an American screw steamer, captained by a 'devil-may-care' gun-runner, bound for Imperial China with a hidden cargo of arms in a desperate attempt to break through the blockade of the Japanese navy as the Sino-Japanese War raged through the East. Predictably matters went wrong immediately and he and his comrades were running for their lives as a cruiser's shells crashed into their vessel. The epic sea conflict, the Battle of Yalu followed and in Port Arthur James Allen was accidentally left ashore as the Japanese forces took the city by storm and he had to run once again and fight for his life with bayonet and axe among the alleys and burning houses of the city to avoid the massacre of the population that followed. A thrilling race to safety brought more dangers on board a floating hulk and a Chinese junk before his eventual rescue. This is an astonishing true story-the very foundation for exactly the kind of fictional adventure that was so popular in the early twentieth century and formed the characters of many of the most well known heroes of that time. Available in soft cover and hard cover with dust jacket for collectors.

Contains Books #5 and #6 The Sword and The Chosen, in the best selling General series. The Empire of Man has fallen and a new Dark Age is upon the stars. With planets cut off and reduced to subsistence and ignorance, humanity has nearly forgotten its past greatness. But one battle computer has survived the Collapse.  He is Center.  And Center is determined to find and aid leaders who can return a star-faring republic to the galaxy.  The first of these leaders is Raj Whitehall, a man born to be a general, and molded to retake civilization itself from the jaws of barbarism.   The Sword  For five years Raj Whitehall has led his men across the face of the planet Bellevue. With saber and bayonet he has conquered one barbarian nation after another. Now his greatest enemy is his own overlord, Barholm Clerett, who´s so paranoid of Raj´s victories that he is reduced to only one thought: Raj Whitehall must die.   The Chosen  Planted by interstellar probes on hundreds of human-occupied worlds, the downloaded personalities of Raj Whitehall and the ancient battle computer known as Center work together for planetary unity. On Visager, a nation-state of vicious militarists is about to start the final war that will bring their fatal racist infection to the stars. Now two young men once at odds in war must unite and, with the aid of the disembodied voices of their mentors from the stars, stand against exporting eternal tyranny to the galaxy itself. About the Raj Whitehall series: “[T]old with knowledge of military tactics and hardware, and vividly described action . . . devotees of military SF should enjoy themselves.”—Publishers Weekly “[A] thoroughly engrossing military sf series . . . superb battle scenes, ingenious weaponry and tactics, homages to Kipling, and many other goodies. High fun.”—Booklist   About David Drake: “[P]rose as cold and hard s the metal alloy of a tank … rivals Crane and Remarque …” –Chicago Sun-Times “Drake couldn’t write a bad action scene at gunpoint.” –Booklist   The General Series The Forge S.
