A king can’t defeat an army of lawless pirates. But a mercenary can.
Logan Conner is the son of a king, the heir to the largest of the five star-dominions, and the best mech pilot in the galaxy. His people are plagued by pirates and raiders, surrounded by enemies, and not even his father can fight them all.
Logan gives up his position, his rank, even his name, and becomes Jonathan Slaughter, leader of a rough-and-ready band of mercenary mech-jocks, bent on taking the battle to the enemy on their own terms.
They’re Wholesale Slaughter. Kicking ass is what they do.

His lifelong love of science fiction began with Have Space Suit—Will Travel and the other Heinlein juveniles and traveled through Clifford Simak, Asimov, Clarke and on to William Gibson, Walter Jon Williams and Peter F Hamilton. And somewhere, submerged in the worlds of others, Rick began to create his own worlds.
He has written 25 books in seven different series, and his short stories have been included in ten different anthologies.
He is currently working on a series for Aethon books, a six-volume military SF saga about a mercenary unit called Wholesale Slaughter. The first two books are out now and the next two will be out this summer.

Excellent interview, and as a fellow Mechwarrior 2: Mercenaries player (who still holds tonnage records in a league I used to play in), I am on my way to pick up this series. Thanks, Hank and Rick!
