His death could not be fearful, he thought. Was he not, the jade phoenix?

Bloodname was the very first Battletech novel I'd ever read.

The tales of Aidan Pryde hold a special place in my memory.

Never thought a speedpaint of a mech could evoke so many emotions.

Great Job Mr. Hatama, great job.

It's great how you've kept the off-focus areas blurred and vague, to help create the chaotic atmosphere of battle.

Man, I miss the old MechWarrior games from FASA before f-ing WizKids took over. They rocked some serious socks... then MechAssault and MechWarrior 4 came out... and everything went to shit. They sure know how to kill an awesome computer game series.

I just spent the past 3 hours scouring the web for information, and guess what:
I shit bricks! :)
Thanks for the heads up! I just hope it will be just as good as MechWarrior 3 or better, and not as bad as MechWarrior 4 ended up being.

Again, thank you thank you thank you!
