Robert Buettner’s new book, Overkill

Coming March 1, 2011 from Baen Books

Good News: Book 1 of the Orphan’s Legacy series, Overkill will be released March 1, 2011 by Baen Books, distributed by Simon & Schuster.

Here’s the cover:

Here’s the story:

           At twenty-three, Jazen Parker has completed his Legion hitch a hero.  But in four months, he’ll have a price on his head.  Worse, he’s lost his past, and he can’t find his future.  Worst of all, he’s chosen to search for them on the deadliest planet known to mankind.

            When Jazen reluctantly hires on to a Trueborn Earthman tycoon’s safari to bag a deadly trophy, the reluctant mercenary finds himself shipped out to Downgraded Earthlike 476, the outpost at the end of the universe known to everyone except its tourism bureau as “Dead End.”

            But the hunt goes terribly wrong, and Jazen must survive a tough, beautiful local guide who hates mercenaries, an eleven ton beast that can crush main battle tanks with one claw tied behind its back, and the return of a nightmare that has haunted Jazen since birth. Then Jazen learns that the stakes are not merely his own life, but the fate of an entire alien race.

    I just read the whole Jason Wander series (finished it last week). I am so happy you are coming out with a new series – can’t wait to read it!

    I’m looking forward to seeing what you can do. The Jason Wander series had it’s ups and downs but overall I’d have to say it was an enjoyable ride. Good luck and congrats!

    Also if you meet Ringo at any Baen authors picnics ask him to redshirt me 😛

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Oh I also have to say that it’s a good thing you waited this long to join Baen. They publish some high quality work but until recently their artwork was less than eye pleasing 😛

    On the one hand, I hate it when I finish a book and find out there was a whole series before it.
    On the other hand, I just finished Overkill, loved it, and now I find out there is a whole series of books about Jazen I haven’t read yet!
    I have the Orphan series on order, and the next book Undercurrents on pre-order.
