Any word on when/what era 50 will bring us?

My reading queue is getting low, I am going to have to start rereading the whole series again.

Casca 50 is set in 1917-1919 and follows Casca’s adventures during the Russian revolution.

And it’ll be out around the start of April. Don’t forget if you haven’t seen it before, please get it from my website as on amazon I make a loss, thanks to their vile set of 4 fees they take from each sale.

Thanks John, that’s nice to know. I get really upset when people go with Amazon, probably they don’t know, though, that I get nothing from those sales. To me, the one who does the work in getting the book written should, rather than those who don’t.

Tony, I do not believe there ever was a story of Casca before and during the time of William the Conquer when he became a Baron.

George, Casca as a Baron was in Warlord, book 3, he was Baron of Chung-Wei of memory serves.

if I remember correctly, Casca hates communists, he says that eventually eat their own, or something like that from when he was taken prisoner in Vietnam, The Phoenix

Yes you’re right. Casca 50 was written specifically to show just how Casca came to hate the communists.

Very cool, I have read and collected all of eternal mercenary series since I was in college in the 80’s. In the original paperbacks, I also have several other of Barry Sadler novels. I very much enjoy your novels of this saga. Continue your fine job of history with his participation. The legend exist in several various tales. Is it true? Truth is always stranger than fiction. Can’t wait for #50

Thanks Richard, I’ll do my best to continue with both the series and the standard. As to the legend, its a bit like Arthur here in the UK; a lot of it is complete rubbish but at the heart of it there is a grain of truth and fact. I suspect the legend of The Walker is something like that.

It was an inspired guess, Gerry. but nevertheless, welcome back and its great to see you again. I remember you way back in 2000 when I first began looking on the interweb for Casca and saw your reviews of Casca books on Amazon.

I think you are right. You were pretty spot on with the date. It was my first Amazon review. I was so happy that Mr. D was continuing the Casca series only to have my dreams crushed when I read the mess that was “The Liberator”. I was so distraught, I had to write a review. I was over in Wiesbaden Germany using the young, still struggling online company to order books. I remember that you commented on the review. You mentioned something about the “fruity bits” in the book, and we have communicated on and off since then.. That’s how I knew you were a Brit, by the way. I met some of your soldiers in the past (Man they had the craziest sense of humor), and remembered the phrase. I also remember you mentioning that you were trying to get the series started again. Well, 23 books later…… We’re here talking about #50.
