      I really like Grimnoir Chronicles, about an alternate history during which people started to get superpowers starting at around the American Civil War.    Famous historical figures feature.  

      I like his Monster Hunter series to a lesser degree, but it's still pretty good.   It's about a private company called Monster Hunters International that hunters monsters.   Lots of talk about firearms.  

      The nice thing about Correia is that he does not put too much of his politics into his fiction.   There's still a lot of pro-private industry and anti-federal government feeling, but it's not nearly as heavy-handed as that of some of his fellow travelers.

        just added this to my wish list/to read list. Amazon doesn't have it in e-book, but the Baen website does, for $6. I'm reading the online first chapter now :) looks interesting.
