I read both books without putting them down except for work . . . so whaddaya waitin’ for? Go and buy some . . . for yourself and for stocking stuffers.”—Massad Ayoob

The stories are set in the MH (Monster Hunter) Universe that builds on the other books in the series, and many of the stories focus on a particular character, such as Julie, Trip, Agent Franks, Chad, etc. The stories range from a Kitsune in Portland, to the janitor at MH HQ, to Agent Franks during WW2. Sarah Hoyt did a great job with Julie, and I look forward to her collaboration with Larry in MH Guardian.
- A+ Authors like Jim Butcher, John Ringo , and more! You should just buy the book for the Jim Butcher story!
- Great stories that are just a fun read.
- The stories add to the Monster Hunter Series.
- Baen Quality - Baen, the book publisher are among the best editors in the Sci Fi area.

- You may hurt yourself by laughing so hard.
Do you need to read the rest of the series before this?
No, but that would add to the enjoyment.
Should you read this at work?
No, there is a huge danger of ROFL and that may impact your career.
Is this a serious literary work?
How would you rate it?
R for violence. Lots of Monsters and bad guys are killed. Think a B Movie.
Is it silly?
No, just clean fun.
Is it Gory?
No. People and Monsters die, but it's not done in a gory way.
1) I happened to watch a panel discussion off YouTube that was recorded at a recent convention. I have read most of the Monster Hunter series and have a fondness for those characters.
2) But I am an avid follower of Faith Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock series, so I had to have it for Jane alone.
3) I am also a fan of Jim Butcher’s writing style, so I was also looking forward to his story as sort of a bonus prize.
However, I just expanded my list of authors who’s work I need to research because I enjoyed so many of these stories.
The Monster Hunter International Files is a grand anthology. Every story is interesting and entertaining. One of my most beloved elements of the MHI series are the dashes of humor even when the monsters are enormous and doom seems inevitable. Many of these stories continue that tradition brilliantly. But if you prefer the dark side of fantasy horror, you have content to enjoy as well.
The authors have done a good job of providing enough back ground that I think that someone unfamiliar with the series would still enjoy it.
In terms of my personal enjoyment, the outstanding stories in the collection were:
• Small Problems by Jim Butcher
• She Bitch, Killer of Kits by Faith Hunter
• Hunter Born by Sarah Hoyt
• Keep Kaiju Weird by Kim May
• Sons of the Father by Quincy Allen
• The Case of the Ghastly Specter by John Ringo
• Huffman Strikes Back -by Bryan Thomas Schmidt & Julie Frost
• Thistle by Larry Correia
• A Knight of the Enchanted Forest by Jessica Day George
I had planned to read this book on my Kindle, but somehow, I got the Audible version going and finished out listening rather than reading. Most of the performers were new to me. While all the narrators did an excellent job, I believe the women did especially well at playing their characters.
Top reviews from other countries
I'd never read any of the Monster Hunter International series before this (I bought it exactly because I was looking to read new stories by lots of people without buying entire novels), and even with stories that are untold incidents from the life of an established major character, I was given enough about the character that they're not just cyphers.
A good, fast paced read.
just waiting for more in these series to be published for me to buy and read
