  1. A cursory view of your site did not reveal a release date for a follow-on novel. I enjoyed “Terms….” and look forward to reading your next effort.

  2. Looking forward to the next novel! Great stuff! The editing was also outstanding. The one and only issue I found is towards the end of the novel there is a sentence by Halley, @”It’s either that, or putting down in the sticks.” That should be “in the styx.”


  3. Michael,

    Not to pick a fight over editing someone else’s novel on that author’s blog, but…

    The only way “in the styx” would make sense in common English would be if it were written “in the Styx”, (note the capitalization–necessary for a proper noun, indicated by ‘the’ and assumption that there’s a specific place-name Styx fits) and that the proposed landing-spot were a river separating us from Hades.

    “In the sticks” is fairly common vernacular for a location away from civilization (see: “in the boonies”, “in BFE”, etc)

  4. Very much enjoyed Terms of Enlistment and am looking forward to the sequel(s) (hint hint). As a former native to the wilds of NH, I’m glad to see someone move there with the same ideals as the state motto: “live free or die.”

  5. Could you post a link on your new Blog to your excellent article “Why the Gun is Civilization”? Also since you are now published and have an agent, could you provide your reproduction rights for this work?

  6. btw, really, really enjoy your writing. Read Terms and Lines, and whatever else I could find. Just found a short about faeries, quite nice. Your writing reminds me very much of Scalzi (who, I think, is among the best in that sub-genre ever, far better than Heinlein)..keep writing! I’ll keep buying! :)

  7. sry, realized prior quick post was potentially misleading; the short was strictly about magic users in a non magic world and a pen shop. Some nuances reminded me of several faery stories, that’s all. I happened to be thinking about those aspects when I posted.

  8. Can’t wait for your next novel Mr. Kloos…Loved Terms and Lines very much. I hope your publisher does not rush you too much though…I am fine with waiting as long as the wait is worth it…if your publisher is pressuring you too hard, tell her anticipation is part of the fun…

  9. What an excellent young author you are…You got Luke Daniels to narrate your novels AND you drink Scotch AND you are protected by little dogs. Congratulations!

  10. Finished “Terms” a couple of days ago, and immediately zipped through “Lines” as well. They were both terrific — thank you so much for several hours of enjoyable reading. I’m very much looking forward to the third in the series, and how dare you leave us with such a huge cliffhanger?

  11. I am certain I am not alone when I say if you ever get with an artist to create some concept art for your ships / drop ships. I would be completely into that purchase. Thanks for doing what you do man. its good work.

  12. I think I have found my new author. I picked up Terms and Lines just four days ago, and I’m already half way through Lines. You writing style and the amount of detail you give is perfect for me. When I started ready Terms, it was late afternoon and the next thing I knew, it was three in the morning. :-) I just could not put it down. Keep up the AWESOME! work.

  13. I LOVE your books. I came in late and was able to read / listen to them at work and on my drive to and from. I will say this my wife has read around 100 books so far this year ( trashy romance and free books on Kindle included ). She is the reader and not me. I decided after getting her the unlimited on Amazon to try an audio book out and I found Terms of Enlistment and Lines of Departure. I couldnt stop I started trying other books and have been excitedly waiting Angles of Attack to come out. I was so excited that I bought the audio version instead of just getting the free Kindle unlimited or waiting for the free whispersync ( IF it comes out ). This is all to say that you books have gotten me into reading and I cannot wait for more and more and more to come out. Hell lets get a TV series going.
