The final two matches of the second round of the Solaris City Combat League drew high ratings for the Solaris Broadcasting Corporation and it affiliates, and had the bookies very busy. A great deal of money was won and lost by a great many people.
    On the nineteenth of May, the Argos Armadillos, fighting for the pride of the Free Worlds League, squared off against the Coventry Roughriders, representing the Lyran Commonwealth. They fought in the Hirsh Arena, and to the great joy of House Steiner supporters the Roughriders emerged victorious. The next week on the twenty-sixth, the Taurian Bulls were eliminated from further competition when they lost their fight against the Rasalhague Polar Bears. It was a hard defeat for the Bulls because their Rifleman was destroyed during the battle and its pilot, Christine de Boer, hospitalised. Not to mention they were out of the running for the Champi

Sitting in his office, Chief Technician Jimmy Han had his feet up on his desk while he drank tea and reviewed the latest ground vehicle maintenance report from his technical team. The Fighting Fusiliers had grown since Cera and Garadun had left for Solaris VII. Jimmy smiled to himself. Where had the time gone? It was more than a year now. Over that time the Fusiliers had added many personnel to their roster; notably the technicians who had quadrupled in number. Jimmy had an actual staff and not simply a handful of astechs. The combat roster had also grown, with four new MechWarriors joining the unit and bringing the Fusiliers up to a full company in size. Three of the pilots had mustered out of the Magistracy Armed Forces before signing on; the fourth had come over from Ramilie’s Raiders, a well-known mercenary outfit that had served the Magistracy for many years. The Fusiliers also had a new pair of aer

To the great joy of every Kobe Dragons fan in the city, the Black Hills Legionnaires lost their battle against the O’Neil Grenadiers on the fifth of May. The added bonus was this meant both Federated Suns teams had been eliminated from competition. For most Kobe citizens, even if they weren’t fans of the Solaris City Combat League, this was an event worth celebrating. The people of Cathay also celebrated the defeat of the Legionnaires, because the Federated Suns was as much of an enemy of the Capellan Confederation as it was the Draconis Combine.
    The good fortune didn’t stop there. Over the next several days all the members of the Kobe Dragons were offered endorsement contracts from different businesses. Aya and Cera signed a deal with Nagano Sportswear, a local company, to advertise and model their stylish workout apparel. Tashizo was hired to do commercials for GoGo

There was no victory celebration for the Kobe Dragons. Two people had died and Game World or no, that was a hard thing to live with when you were the one taking those lives. Even as jaded, world-weary and cynical as he was, Garadun took the deaths hard. Had it been some hate-filled bigot he’d killed then he honestly wouldn’t have given a damn. But Lisa Winneck had been an honourable woman. Same for Danika Krueger.
    They’d known the risks. Every MechWarrior on Solaris knows the risks. But taking a life eroded a bit of his soul every time he did it, intentional or not. Cera was hurting as well. She hadn’t aimed at Danika’s cockpit; it was just one of those things. Especially with missile barrages. With missiles she tends to point and shoot and hope for the best. It was Tashizo who reminded her and Garadun that it wasn’t their fault. This was Solari

Strapped into the command couch of his Hunchback, with his neurohelmet in his lap and music playing in the cockpit, Garadun waited for the match to begin. There’s a very old saying: no plan survives contact with the enemy. He preferred another very old saying: shit happens. It covered life in general, not just warfare, and it applied to the current situation. Somehow, despite all the security measures around the Archon City arena, a trio of overenthusiastic BattleMech fanboys had snuck onto the off-limits battlefield and hidden themselves in one of the artificial city’s buildings.
    The pre-game holocamera check had discovered the three idiots and now everyone was waiting for SCCL security personnel and cops from the Silesia Police Department to arrive and arrest their asses. As far as Garadun was concerned, the SCCL should have simply left them there and let the match procee

Cera knocked on Garadun’s door, ready for their usual Saturday morning breakfast. The sharp words they’d exchanged the afternoon before were behind her. It wasn’t the first spat they’d ever had and it wouldn’t be the last. And even though she knew Li Song was his roomie for the time being, Cera was still a little surprised when the Capellan opened the door to greet her. Not to mention the fact that all she had on was a dark red, thigh-length sleep tee. Her black hair fell loose about her shoulders and down her back. Cera had never seen her look so carefree.
    “Morning, Cera. Come in,” said Li Song cheerfully.
    Cera was wearing white silk pyjamas with pink pinstriping, so she had no right to comment on Li Song’s extremely casual attire. But as she followed her down the hall she couldn’t help but be curious. Li Song was normally

By the time the weekend was over, Li Song had gotten over the initial emotional trauma of what had happened to her, and was more her usual, confident self. Come Monday morning she was on the visphone making a lot of important calls. First to each of her now ex-employees to let them know she would be paying their salaries through the end of the month. If they wanted any references, then she was very happy to provide them. For her escorts, they could either go independent or she could send them to her friend, Catherine Yu, who ran an escort agency as well as a private sex club. Otherwise she was done with prostitution and the nightclub scene in general. She didn’t know what her professional future held, but it wasn’t that, not anymore. There were calls to the police, her insurance company, her assorted attorneys, all her suppliers, and the offices of the Bertoli Financial Group. Lots of tedious

Morning found Li Song waking to discover she was alone in Garadun’s bed. The curtains were still drawn, but the sun was high enough in the sky that plenty of ambient light filtered past them into the large chamber for her to see. She glanced over at the clock on his night table and saw it was almost eleven.
    She stretched languidly and then sat up, her hands and arms stroking the silver fox bedspread as she did so. The fur was a mix of dark silvery grey and black, wonderfully soft and silky and very beautiful; she’d never seen or felt its like before. One of her new robes was draped over a chair. It was midnight green and made from heavy Capellan silk. She pulled it on and smiled as she tied the sash. He was so thoughtful.
    Curiosity got the better of her and she made her way into the bedroom’s spacious walk-in closet. It was surprising tidy and organised, and as she s

Cera was of course immensely relieved when Garadun returned to Shinjuku Tower in the company of Li Song, who was very rattled but thankfully unhurt. After being settled on the sofa with a drink, she told them the story of what happened. Five or six men broke into the nightclub, killing Frankie Chan when he tried to stop them; although Frankie managed to kill one of them before he was gunned down. They shot the place up a bit while the daytime staff ran, and then threw firebombs and set the whole building ablaze. They looked like Capellan gang-bangers. She ran for her life along with her employees, and the thugs didn’t give chase. Emergency responders arrived, and she was checked for injuries and asked a lot of questions by the police.
    Then Garadun arrived and rescued her.
    Wasp and Stinger hopped on the sofa and Li Song was comforted by their friendly presence. Cera got up

The first match of the second round of the Solaris City Combat League was fought in the forested arena of Shirakami, with the Silesia Griffins squaring off against the Solaris Sharks. The BattleMechs of both teams were more suited to open terrain warfare rather than the closed confines of the huge, confer-like trees of Shirakami.
    Yet such is the luck of the draw.
    To the great disappointment of the Lyran Commonwealth, the Solaris Sharks emerged the victors after a tremendous battle in which many of the forest’s trees were blown to bits by volleys of missiles that missed their intended targets. The BattleMechs of both teams took a pounding, with the new Whitworth of the Sharks being blown apart by an ammunition breach, and their Stalker nearly losing its right leg. The Griffins also lost a ‘Mech to an ammo breach: their Centurion, piloted by Heidi Fokke

The Dragons drifted back to the bar to refill their drinks, where Yuriko joined them and was given a detailed rundown on the confrontation. She agreed with Chairman White that staying away from the Davion teams was a sensible idea.
    “So how’s the party for you guys, otherwise?” Cera asked her team-mates.
    “Not a bad bash,” Tashizo replied. “First time I’ve been to one of these things.”
    Aya nodded. “Hai.”
    “It’s been productive, at least.” Garadun beamed at Cera. “Guess what, sweetie? I got you an endorsement gig with Kali Yama.”
    “What? Are you serious?”
    “Yup. Anna introduced me to Kali Yama’s chief rep. Guy named...” Garadun tapped his forehead in thought. “Ryce. He asked me

Although it was fair to say Garadun wasn’t comfortable at big swanky parties, as part of the MechWarrior gig on Solaris they were a necessity. It was at these important social events that you networked: made connections, got introduced to influential people, discussed endorsements, and generally got on with the business of making money. He may not have liked these kinds of parties, but he understood them.
    The Solaris Hilton was the city’s most luxurious hotel and, located as it was in the International Area, was considered neutral territory. Which made it the logical choice to the Solaris City Combat League as the venue to host its first official SCCL MechWarrior Gala. The hotel’s Grand Ballroom was one of the largest and most opulent of its kind in the city, and tonight it was crowded with hundreds of partygoers.

The Red Mesa Grill could be found in the International Area of Solaris City, located on Madelynn Avenue near the corner of New Avalon Street, right next to the SBC building and not far from the original BattleMech Centre. Before he met Cera and moved to Kobe, Garadun had lived in the International Area and been a patron of the Red Mesa Grill on many occasions. Usually on a Friday or Saturday night to treat himself after a long week of working at the Solaris City ‘Mech Bays.
    The BattleMech-oriented sports bar was one of the most popular in the International Area, thanks in no small part to its owner, Devin Fajil, and the bar’s famous barbequed buffalo burger. Devin kept the recipe for the Red Mesa’s signature burger a tight secret, but would otherwise happily talk at length with any of his patrons. Boisterous and friendly, he found nothing so pleasing as watching and talking abou

Although loud or unruly behaviour was normally frowned upon in the Snowbird, when the Kobe Dragons walked in Friday night, the entire bar thundered with applause and cheers. Patrons and staff alike welcomed them loudly and enthusiastically. They were now heroes to the citizens of Kobe because they hadn’t simply beaten the Black Hills Legionnaires, they had humiliated them.
    The Warhammer belonging to team captain Anderson Carlyle would probably have its engine replaced because it would simply be easier than trying to repair it. Lisa Tager’s Crusader had been blown to smithereens and she was in hospital. Mathew Gadbois had been killed when Garadun destroyed his Centurion. The poor sod hadn’t even had time to eject. Only Benton Forbes had come through with his ‘Mech in more or less one piece, if somewhat battered. The Legionnaires now had to rebu

The mess hall aboard League Two, the Leopard class DropShip being used to transport the Kobe Dragons and their BattleMechs, was somewhat cramped; but had more than enough room for the team to meet in. Tashizo was trying to hide his nervousness. He’d never been in a DropShip before. It was noisy and vibrated and shook during its flight out of the atmosphere, around half the planet, and back down again towards their destination: Al-Nafud, the desert battlefield sponsored by the Federated Suns. Which meant the Black Hills Legionnaires would be fighting on home turf.
    Tashizo stood there in a pair of combat boots, shorts, tank top and his brand-new cooling vest. His neurohelmet was on the mess hall table. Cera and Aya were similarly clad, although Cera’s neurohelmet was a marvel of lostech, a model used during the days of the Star League. She had been given it

    Tyler was right, Brigitte thinks as she checks over the data being relayed to her Axeman’s computer. The information is streaming from the far more powerful mainframe aboard the Lodestar, and it’s giving her a much better view of the pirate encampment now that the DropShip’s on the ground and Mike’s had some time to sift through the sensor readings they’ve gathered.

Just a short while ago, I finally finished writing Roaring Bear, the 4th novel in my BattleTech storyline. Whereas The Kobe Dragons is my longest book in the series (maybe the longest of any of the books I've written ), Roaring Bear is the shortest, at 20 chapters and an epilogue.

Without giving too much away, the story takes place in 3050 and has Cera and Garadun dealing with the Clan Invasion in their own unique way. As the name implies, they encounter Clan Ghost Bear ~ and the fun goes from there.

I can promise there will be a fifth book in the series. I don't have a plot yet, or even a title, by I can say this: for you fans of the Fighting Fusiliers? They're back :D

Right, I think I've earned meself a break...
