In the distant future, the world was a paradise — and then, in a moment, it was ended by the first war in centuries. People who had known godlike power, to whom hunger and pain were completely unknown, desperately scrabbled to survive. As the United Free States, the bastion of freedom and center of opposition to the tyrants of New Destiny, prepared for the long-feared invasion by the Changed legions of Ropasa, Edmund Talbot realized that bureaucratic ineptitude and overconfidence was setting the USF naval forces of ships and dragons up for a disastrous defeat at sea. His fears came true, and the destruction of the fleet seemingly left the UFS open for a full scale invasion. But Talbot had new concepts and strategies ready to put into effect, along with new technical innovations from his brilliant engineer. He survived an assassination attempt and quickly assembled a formidable land force combining cavalry, longbowmen, Roman style legions, and dragons for airborne assault. The fascist forces of New Destiny thought that their war was all but concluded, and world domination within their grasp. Edmund Talbot was ready to show them just how wrong they were…

John Ringo is an American science fiction writer. John Ringo was born in 1963 (March 22, 1963, Miami-Dade, Florida, United States). He does not like to talk about the details of his biography, because he is sure that this is a waste of time. "People seem to like them [biographies].

But how do you know? I mean, people go to the author`s website, but that doesn`t mean they like biographies.

Personally, I`m bored to tears.

What`s wrong with 250 words or less?" Or do you really need to know that the writer`s cat recently died of syphilis? " Nevertheless, from 250 (or less) words of the biography on John Ringo`s website, you can find out that in his youth he had to travel a lot: during his schooling, he traveled to twenty-three countries and changed fourteen schools. In his youth, John Ringo served in the Airborne Forces where he mastered the art of diving, rock climbing, hunting, spear fishing, sailing and many other interesting things. Later, his personal experience was reflected in the novels in the form of many details and details of military life. After completing his military career, John Ringo seriously studied marine biology for some time, but since it was difficult to make money in this field, he reluctantly moved to a higher-paid job as a database programmer. A fairly active reader of the Baen Books forum at the time, John Ringo sent his first novel to the publisher shortly after it decided to accept new books by e-mail. Within just a couple of weeks, Baen Books acquired the rights to John Ringo`s first book, released it and offered him a large advance for the second. David Weber, by that time already a very famous author, also published by Baen Books, was delighted with the books of John Ringo, and, without thinking twice, offered him help in writing his new book, which quickly turned into a full-fledged co-authorship. John Ringo is a rather rare occurrence among writers - he has a good idea of ​​what he writes about. Years of travel, military experience and work as a programmer have served him well - he clearly has a fairly broad knowledge of physics, mathematics and computer systems, so his novels are not overwhelmed by obvious blunders and inconsistencies. In short, we recommend. John Ringo`s official website: http://johnringo.com John Ringo. Special Circumstances Princess of Wands (2006) Into the Looking Glass Into the Looking Glass (2005) Vorpal Blade (2007) // Co-author: Travis Taylor Manxome Foe (2008) // Co-author: Travis Taylor Paladin of Shadows Ghost (2005) Kildar (2006) Choosers of the Slain (2006) Unto the Breach (2006) A Deeper Blue (2007) Posleen War A Hymn Before Battle (2003) Gust Front (2004) When the Devil dancing / When the Devil Dances (2005) Hells Faire (2003) + Legacy of the Aldenata Hero / The Hero (2004) // Co-author: Michael Williamson Cally`s War (2004) // Co-author: Julia Cochrane Watch on the Rhine (2005) // Co-authored by Tom Kratman Yellow Eyes (2007) // Co-authored by Tom Kratman Sister Time (2007) // Co-authored by Julia Cochrane Council Wars There will be dragons (2003) Emerald Sea ( 2007) Against the Tide (2005) East of the Sun and West of the Moon (2006) Empire of Man // Co-author: David Weber March through the jungle / March Upcountry [= Imperial Voyage] (2001) // Co-author: David Weber March to the Sea (2001) // Co-author: David Weber March to the Stars (2003) // Co-author: David Weber We Few ( 2005) // Co-author: David Weber John Ringo. Bolos / Bolos collaborations // Posted by Keith Laumer The Road to Damascus (2005) // Co-authored: Linda Evans Victoria Harrington Universe / Honorverse [= Honor Harrington Universe] // Posted by David Weber Worlds of Honor // Author: David Weber The Service of the Sword [= Service to the Sword] (2003) // Compiled Editor: David Weber A Ship Called Francis [= A Ship Called Francis] (2003) // Co-author: Victor Mitchell Let & # 039; s Go to Prague (2003) John Ringo. 2001 March to the Sea Novels // Co-authored: David Weber 2001 March Upcountry [= Imperial Voyage] // Co-authored: David Weber 2003 A Hymn Before Battle 2003 Hells Faire 2003 March to the Stars // Co-author : David Weber 2003 The Taming of Fire / There will be dragons 2004 The Harbinger of the Storm / Gust Front 2004 The Hero / The Hero // Co-author: Michael Williamson 2004 Cally`s War // Co-author: Julia Cochrane 2005 When the Devil Dances 2005 Watch on the Rhine // Co-authored: Tom Kratman 2005 The Road to Damascus // Co-authored: Linda Evans 2005 Into the Looking Glass 2005 We Few // Co-authored: David Weber 2005 Ghost 2005 Against the Tide 2006 East of the Sun and West of the Moon 2006 Von Neumann`s War 2006 Kildar 2006 Unto the Breach 2006 Princess of Wands 2006 Choosers of the Slain 2007 Vorpal Blade // Co-authored: Travis Taylor 2007 Sister Time // Co-authored: Julia Cochrane 2007 A Deeper Blue 2007 Emerald Sea 2007 Yellow E yes // Co-author: Tom Kratman 2008 Manxome Foe // Co-author: Travis Taylor John Ringo. Novels and Stories 2003 A Ship Named Francis 2003 A Ship Called Francis [= A Ship Called Francis] // Co-author: Victor Mitchell 2003 Let & # 039; s Go to Prague 2007 Hero / The Hero // Co-author: Michael Williamson Bibliographic Compiler - Egorro
