The Monster Hunter Files, edited by Larry Correia & Bryan Thomas Schmidt with stories by Correia, Schmidt, Sarah Hoyt, Jim Butcher, Faith Hunter, Jonathan Maberry, Jody Lynn Nye, John Ringo and others.

They're all good. My favorite is Butcher's which basically could be described as the Rats of NIMH meet MHI or at least their maintenance man. Highly recommended.

Hammered by Kevin Hearne

In the last book, Atticus made a promise to his vampire lawyer to help him kill Thor. In this book he keeps his promise. I liked it as much as the previous novels and look forward tot he next. Highly Recommended.

Needs Repeating

“Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, “This you may not read, this you must not know,” the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.” ― Robert A. Heinlein

In the land of the perpetually offended...

Outrage over ‘Game of Thrones’ Creators ‘Confederate’ HBO Show: ‘Two White Guys’ Making Slavery Series
When I saw the posts on this show originally, I saw it as a thinly veiled poke at conservatives 'cuz we're all racists and secretly yearn for a return to the old South. Hoist on their own petard, they are. Heh.

Actually, the premise isn't new. There have been many alternate histories of the Civil War and it's aftermath in fiction. Some well thought out. Some, not so much. This, I think, will be the later.
