About the Author

Larry Correia is hopelessly addicted to two things: guns and B-horror movies. He lists his occupations: gun dealer, firearms instructor, accountant, and writer, and is part owner of FBMG (Fuzzy Bunny Movie Guns) a company specializing in firearms and movie props. He shoots competitively and is a certified concealed weapons instructor. Larry resides in Utah with his very patient wife and family. He has also designed a special patch for the agents of Monster Hunter International, Inc. As he puts it, “If you don’t look good while you’re killing stuff, then you’re not really a monster hunter.”

Customer Reviews

Every character in the book is relatable, gives the reader much more to care about in the story.
Ryan D. Crompton
The author really went wild creating the creatures and world of the story, and the action scenes are intense and well described.
MRA
As well as having great action scenes, there's a lot of good humor in this book and quirky characters.

Monster Hunter International

It's your average, everyday Wednesday evening; I had just stopped by to pick up the latest issue of the Wellsboro Gazette. Suddenly, I found myself able to fulfill the American dream. No, not the one with the nude roller derby girls, the other "American" dream. I got to run over my boss. Understand, I felt obligated to burn hot rubber across his hairy back. No, I didn't wake up that morning and plan on killing my boss with my Subaru. It's really much more complicated than that. I would never have considered doing something that sounded so crazy. Heck, I work in a bookstore. My idea of danger is getting a paper cut. I didn't want to save the world. I didn't want to have to replace my headlight. I didn't want my insurance rates to skyrocket. I didn't want to know my boss was a werewolf...

It turns out that monsters are real, and that's why I found myself devouring Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia. Creatures from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there. Lurking in the shadows, seeking our destruction, or just plain hungry. Monster Hunter International is the number one agency for eradication of evil.

Our story starts with one Owen Zastava Pitt. He's your average, everyday working stiff. He just wants to work hard, get himself a wife and 2.5 kids, and settle in the suburbs, but when his boss literally tries to bite his head off, Owen is thrust into a world that he never knew existed - a world where monsters are exist, and there is good money to be made killing them. Welcome to Monster Hunter International.

MHI,a remarkable group of misfits that has banded together. They do more than dare to raise a candle to the darkness. They pack napalm-fed flamethrowers and lots of firepower.

I recently read Monster Hunter International by Larry Corriea. I have to tell you I waffled on buying this book. I mean I had this fear of Night of the Living Dead, Zombie Apocolypse stuff that was poorly written and didn't fit into anything that interested me. But, I read some of the reviews and I picked up on Larry's website and I thought I would take a shot at it. So, I duly brought up my Amazon account, and ordered the book. At the same time, I was ordering a bunch of other stuff so I thought of it as kind of a impulse buy.

Best impulse buy that I ever made. The book is a page turner, and one I had a hard time putting down. There is little or no, slow spots in the read. From the first few pages this thing moves the plot along quickly and efficiently, introducing characters as necessary and providing just the right level of detail to set the visuals of the situation.

Is the plot predictable? Maybe at times but for the most part it twists and turns, and just when you think it is going to go straight on for a bit, it pulls a wild left turn and zig zags all over the place.

Larry pulls in aspects of many different historical cultures and weaves them almost seamlessly into the story telling . Sorry Larry, there were a couple of abrupt points so you don't get the full seamless comment. However, I think that they abruptness may have been appropriate to the scene on occasion.

I wish I could write a story that is half as entertaining, and half as well written.

This is a damn fine book that you need to go out and read.

Larry has managed to create a work that blends humor, action, horror, a little romance, and a strong measure of independent thought to create a fast moving, engaging story. Throughout the book, there are many times when the imagery is so strong and the story so fluid, it makes it possible to forget the 300lb Russian sleeping next to you on your international flight (in coach). Of course, there are also scenes that will make you laugh so hard you may wake up said Russian if you don't excercise some restraint. Perhaps the best thing I can say, is it's been two weeks since I've finished the book, and I'm still thinking about the characters and element of the story. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
Normally I'm not a science fiction or fantasy fan. I'm not into Lord of the Rings, or space movies. Maybe a little Robert Heinlein...

But I am into guns, and wicked humor, and that was enough to hook me into reading this novel. So, where's the sci-fi? Let's just say that there have been outbreaks of werewolves, vampires, zombies and other assorted superstrong bloodthirsty mutant freaks running amok and slaughtering humans. Otherwise, we're right here in a sort of normal world...mostly.

A world that's normal to the extent that the government doesn't want the ordinary sheeple to know what's happening, monster-wise. They want the mutant monsters eliminated when they appear...but they want it done quietly and out of sight, to keep the ordinary folks from panicking.

That's where Monster Hunters Int'l comes in. Picture an all-star squad of combat marksmen, sort of a Blackwater Security tasked with wiping out monsters, in return for extremely lucrative bounties offered by the government. (Sidebar: Anybody want to guess what Uncle Sam has payed Blackwater over the last few years? It's astronomical. In the billions, not millions.)

Also kind of parallel to Blackwater, MHI has an uneasy relationship with the straight federal law enforcement agencies such as the FBI. Sometimes they work together, sometimes they fight, and this dynamic adds several plot twists and turns.

The novel is told in first person voice, by 24 year old protagonist Owen Pitt. He is recruited into MHI after demonstrating a very high level of skill in killing a few shape-shifting vampires, who can morph from human-appearing (as his boss for example) and back. These suckers are incredibly hard to kill, they have a great ability to heal and possess super strength.
