Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

2017 Military Spec-Fic Reading Challenge

2017 Military Spec-Fic Reading Challenge

Space Marines! Paladin Orders! Star Navies! There's literally armies of them in science fiction and fantasy (and a lot of the tales of war certainly cross over into horror). Because I read a lot of this genre I'm creating a challenge for it this year.

To enlist:

  • Read up to 12 books that are classified as military fiction.
  • All genres of military fiction are acceptable if they qualify for this site. Science fiction, fantasy, and/or horror all are perfectly fine.
  • Video game and role-play tie-ins are acceptable, if they suit the challenge (ie. HALO, Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000, BattleTech, Mechwarrior, StarCraft, Overwatch, etc.)
  • Re-reads must be from something you read at least a decade ago! (Yes, I realize that this somewhat limits the back catalogue for our younger recruits, but you know what? That's the benefit of experience, greenhorn.) ;)
  • Suggested material may be found at the Baen Readers' List of Recommended Military SF, but is by no means limited to this list.

Have you understood the terms and conditions, recruit? Very well; just sign here... Great! Welcome aboard! Go suit up; training is about to begin.
