Rangering in the Ruin: WarGate Books’ Sgt. Thor

Wednesday, June 7th, 2023

Rangers of the 75th Ranger Regiment have gone, seen, and conquered in some of the worst places in the world – this, however, may be the strangest place they’ve led the way. The following release from WarGate Books – one of the owners of which is a former Ranger – tells of the latest project in the Forgotten Ruin series. The Ruin books are a different take on military science fiction.

Somethingthing to know before you get started: Amazon’s marketing department is now shad0w-banning indie authors with “violent content” on the cover (guns, swords, combat, etc.: more on that here). Big-name authors like Jack Carr haven’t been impacted yet (that we’re aware of), but individual writers and small publishing houses very much have been. They cannot run ads on Amazon Marketing Solutions on affected novels, and some books are no longer searchable by the author’s name. You can’t find them unless you know the specific title of the individual book. Sound familiar?



Sgt. Thor and Mjölnir Rock the Ruin

Area 51, God Only Knows When

Bring it in; take a knee. WarGate Books is proud to announce Sgt. Thor’s imminent raid on the Ruin, Sua Sponte solo style.

BLUF: An indie book company with a stable-full of combat veteran writers and best-selling authors is launching a new book line. You should back them on Kickstarter.

This won’t matter to you if you prefer anemic military science fiction, effete protagonists, lackluster action, or peace. If you appreciate a side of carnage to go with your violence of action, though, then you’re going to want to read on!

Who is Sgt. Thor? He’s what would happen if Conan completed Ranger School, got tabbed and scrolled, and carried a .50 AMR named Mjölnir on his adventures. He’s the guy who changed his name and his religious affiliation so he could grow a beard, then went full Viking. You know, the former surfer with the Glock 17, matched tomahawks, and Thor Score: The Regimental high score for stacking monstrous bodies.

What is the Ruin? It’s an ancient, murderous future. It’s four hundred generations from now, the wreck of a world Ruined by a nano-plague. It’s a place stalked by hideous creatures and haunted by fiends.

It’s the place a company of Rangers with attachments and augments finds themselves going shock and awesome on a series of HVTs straight out of a Tolkien novel or D&D campaign.

What about WarGate Books? They’re this world’s source for the acclaimed Galaxy’s EdgeThe Lost, Warlord¸ Splashdown, and of course Forgotten Ruin series of novels. They have entirely reimagined military science fiction.

Rangers gonna Ranger, whether they’re killing bad guys in dirty manjams or orcs in rusted armor.

“The Ranger tab is just a leadership school. The scroll is a way of life.” Sgt. Thor

An excerpt from the Forgotten Ruin series…

I tell Sergeant Thor what I’ve seen out there, more undead than expected being called back into service by the god of death. And yes, it sounds just as crazy as I think it does when I say it out loud. But I never mind that and give the intel because that’s what you’re supposed to do no matter how crazy it sounds.

We’re about to get hit good and hard by an unexpected amount of enemy units that may be ghosts.

From the Rangers’ position here in the team with the command element, they can’t see the undead elves and werewolves now massing behind the front of skeleton foot and grave troll heavies getting murdered by Knife Hand and the scouts. Even the snipers can’t hit them. But they’re there.

“Death god,” rumbles Thor, still holding Mjölnir, his Barrett M107 anti-materiel rifle.

I can’t tell if killing a god is actually seriously being considered by the Ranger sniper, but if I were a betting man, I’m pretty sure the Thor High Score just got another item added to the to-do-before-death list.

He confirms this a second later.

Ninety-Pound Rucksack Recounts Story of World War II’s 10th Mountain Division

Monday, April 17th, 2023

A new podcast, Ninety-Pound Rucksack, is recounting the story of World War II’s 10th Mountain Division and its contributions to outdoor recreation in America.

Hosted by veteran alpinist and climbing historian Christian Beckwith, the podcast offers a deep dive into the origins of the 10th, an unprecedented unit of US Army climbers and skiers who trained for more than two years in the Colorado Rockies to fight the Axis powers in extreme cold and mountainous terrain.

Informed by an advisory board of the 10th’s foremost experts, the podcast details a different chapter in the unit’s history with each episode, providing a sweeping overview of the Division’s influence on both American military and its outdoor recreation industry. Post-war, 10th Mountain Division veterans founded and developed ski areas across America, started companies like NOLS and Nike and launched the fields of avalanche science and wilderness rescue.

Based on the podcast’s first few episodes, Beckwith was invited to keynote the XVIII Airborne Corps’ Leadership Forum at Ft. Drum, New York, in February. He is now serving as an advisor to the 10th Mountain Alpine Club, a nascent organization that is helping the unit reconnect with its historic identity, and will keynote the 10th Mountain Division’s Mountain Fest 2023 in June.

Ninety-Pound Rucksack is available at
