It might sound a little redundant (or even 'old news') but having just downloaded them myself I've added a link to the contacts page on the Slammer's site hammers-slammers.com/contact.htm to point people to the Kindle editions of the Complete Hammers Slammers books Volumes 1-3 (both Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com).

These are Kindle versions of the Nightshade Publications books and contain every 'proper' Slammers story to date* but note that they are the paperback versions rather than the hardback versions (certainly the ones I downloaded were anyway) which, whilst the text may well be exactly the same, means no internal illustrations.

By which I mean my illustrations which featured in the hard backs do not appear to be present.

Oh well :( Anyway, Hardback, paperback or Kindle, they are still the best way to get access to all of that material: they have a short story in each which is unique to them and even if you have some or most of the material elsewhere they are, in my humble opinion, worth buying for that material alone.

* Just a reminder that the collection does not include the excellent Forlorn Hope currently not available on Kindle (as far as I can tell) which, Dave Drake has agreed, can be contained within the Slammers Crucible Rules universe.

John, last year I bought volume 1 for my Kindle directly from Baen and your illustrations were in there.

Hmmm – I'll check mine again: I only have the UK (Kindle versions so perhaps there are different version out there?

Anyway, I only got them ysterday so I'll have a good look through and see if I missed anything (always possible!).

Thanks Caesar.

It was a pleasant surprise as I own the hardcover and wanted the kindle just for reading. I didn't expect the illustrations to match the hardcover.

I already have the paperbacks, I wanna see the Hammers Slammers Mini rules on the Kindle.

Believe me JT … I'm rarely that quick … at my age as well ! I have all the Slammer Books including Nightshade's 3 Volume set, all the 2 Handbooks and The Crucible that you did John and even the old Mayfair game … I'm covered … evil grin

If anyone looks at this thread …

Just a shill for one of Drake's non-Hammers books, Redliners link

Drake's books are seldom soothing … this one exemplifies that more than most.

I just rechecked my Kindle and they have got the illustrations so I'm quite pleased!
