Book 20: Sergeant In Motion — Part I

A Sale! And Shipping in Time for Christmas!

Head over to and use the discount code 2019HOLIDAY between now and December 5th for 10% off anything in our store.

Additionally, we have a bunch of things already on sale, and yes, the coupon bonus will stack, increasing your savings.

If you need your packages to arrive by Christmas, international orders must to be placed by December 4, and US orders must to be placed by December 18.

If you’re ordering t-shirts, please be aware that those have a separate shipping chart. They’re produced on demand, and fulfilled by the printer, and it’s probably already too late for internationally-shipped shirts to arrive by Christmas (the deadline was Nov 25). If you’re shipping shirts to the US you have until December 10th to place orders for by-Christmas delivery.


Still Thankful After All These Years

This is our 19th Thanksgiving since creating Schlock Mercenary, and our 15th since it was our primary source of income. This is a great time of year to sit back and contemplate ways in which to counter that old saw about familiarity breeding contempt. Just because it’s gotten difficult to remember NOT being supported by the kindness of friends, fans, and strangers on the internet doesn’t mean it’s any less magical.

Thank you! If you’re reading this, you’re one of the reasons this exists. Maybe you’ve shopped with us. Perhaps an advertiser has sent us some money in exchange for the opportunity to pester you. It’s possible you’ve contributed to our Patreon, signal-boosted a Kickstarter, or simply PayPal’d us some change. For any of that, we’re grateful.

But our gratitude needn’t be for transactional stuff. The fact that you read this is itself a reward. Telling stories for other people is incredibly fulfilling, and we’re super-fulfilled for having been able to do this for nigh on two decades.

Thank you!


I just finished streaming BIG DUMB COVER ART SIX over at, and had a great time right at the end discovering that halleleujah the cover is done!

The stream ran for about two hours, and is available for re-watching on my Twitch channel for the next couple of weeks. I’ll get it up onto YouTube eventually.
