I bought it via the Baen e-subscription, so I have a copy on hard drive.

It had the immediate consequence of having me show up to work after not having slept because I couldn't stop reading. I hadn't done that since college (approx 30 years), and I had forgotton what a poor idea that was. I somehow managed to stay awake the next evening long enough to finish it.

Totally reccomended.

I just ordered it from Amazon.

A bit of it is in the last Ghost paperback book.

I just finished reading it a few days ago and quite enjoyed it.

It is a fabulous book.

The story is so-so. But the implied economics and planning lessons are brilliant.

+1 on TLC and the Paladin of Shadows series...

The first chapters of The Last Centurion are available online:


The Paladin of Shadows series (Ghost, Kildar, Choosers of the Slain and Unto the Breach, but not the latest volume A Deeper Blue) are available online here:


These are not pirate copies. Jim Baen believed that putting this material out for free results in increased sales overall, and he was proven right.

It is a great book and he is a great author.
