June Books 25) Monster Hunter International, by Larry Correia

One of the books included in the Hugo Voter Package to help us to determine our votes for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. It's a contemporary novel of a clandestine organistion fighting the supernatural nasties, à la Buffy and many others, with the monsters mostly taken straight from the D&D manual; the protagonist is a wise-cracking gun nut; and as soon as the first female character appears you pretty much know how the book is going to end. Still, it certainly helped me determine one more placing on my ballot paper.
