      Celadon. A pest-hole of a planet infested with pirates, terrorists, and soul-sucking bureaucrats determined to maintain the bloody status quo. But after an inside job nearly eliminates reformist President Bishwanath, it's time for the elite mercs of Ripple Creek Security to toss out the restrictive rulebook forced on them by Earth's state department, reach for the Composition G, and show the locals how the big boys make war. Short answer: they blow things up. They blow them up in detail.

      Now available from the Baen Free Library here.

      Ripple Creek T-Shirts can be purchased here, directly from Mike.
