When you think of the great wars throughout time what do you think of? Romans vs Carthage? British vs French? Allies vs Axis? Well my dear friend let me pitch you this one: Dragons vs Lasers! And not just any lasers, flying robot lasers. I know, legendary… I know.

Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 6.48 out of 10)

    Ah, the classic tale of boy meets girl, girl turns into dragon, boy goes to war, gets hurt and gets his brain installed into a flying robot, robot-boy meets girl-dragon on the battlefield and their love is rekindled across the warzone… and together they bring peace to the waring world?

    A classic tale

    Good call… could the twist be that they bring peace through mass death?

    I foresee a long, boring struggle in the Dragon/Robot Wars. The robots must obviously be built to resist extreme high temperature, negating the primary weapons of Dragon. In return, dragon scales are famously tough, nearly impossible to penetrate, and heat resistant as well. A laser small enough to install in a flying platform cannot possibly put out enough kilojoules to instantly penetrate. So unless the Dragon forces are kind enough to sit quietly so said laser can gradually burn through scale, it could be a VERY long and unbloody war.

    Plus that seems an awkward title. Should have just called it “Baen”.

    Not to be confused with “The Wars of the Books”.

  5. RachelJ Says:

    So who forgot to substitute the real title for the obviously generic Baen one used for the mock-up? Bet the author was annoyed.

  6. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Or “The Boors of the Wooks.”

  7. Anna T. Says:

    With a title like that, this book could be about literally any wars at all. The war that seems to be going on deserves better.

    Alternate Title:
    Baen Books
