Jack Campbell

Jack Campbell is the pen name of John G. Hemry, a retired U.S. Navy officer. His father (LCDR Jack M. Hemry, USN ret.) is a mustang (an officer who was promoted through the enlisted ranks), so John grew up living everywhere from Pensacola, Florida to San Diego, California, including an especially memorable few year on Midway Island.

John graduated from Lyons High School in Lyons, Kansas in 1974, then attended the U.S. Naval Academy (Class of ’78), where he was labeled “the un-Midshipman” by his roommates. His active duty assignments in the U.S. Navy included: USS SPRUANCE (DD963) (Navigator, Gunnery Officer); Defense Intelligence Agency (Production Control Officer); Navy Anti-Terrorism Alert Center (Watch Officer, Operations Officer); Amphibious Squadron Five (Staff Intelligence Officer/N2); Navy Operational Intelligence Center (Readiness Division); and Chief of Naval Operations Staff N3/N5 (Plans, Policy and Operations).

John speaks the remnants of Russian painstakingly pounded into him by Professor Vladimir Tolstoy (yes, he was related to that Tolstoy).

He lives in Maryland with a wife who is too good for him and three great kids.

Find John on his website or follow him on Twitter @JohnGHemry.

Reviews

The Lost Fleet Series

Dauntless (#1)
“This engaging and interesting first book will, one hopes, be part of a long-lasting series.”

RT Book Reviews

“If there’s ever a space war, the Lost Fleet series could well be the military’s manual. Author Jack Campbell, a former Navy officer, infuses the first book, DAUNTLESS, with the kind of details that make 'Black Jack' Geary’s futuristic exploits seem as if they’re ripped from today’s headlines. Narrator Christian Rummel gives this blood-and-guts adventure just the hard edge it needs.”

Audible

“If you’re a fan of character, action, and conflict in a military SF setting, you would probably be more than pleased by Campbell’s offering.”

Tor.com

“A good, solid military space action/adventure novel.”

Kliatt

“Fascinating stuff […] this is military SF where the military and SF parts are both done right.”

SFX Magazine

”I found DAUNTLESS to be an excellent blend of real science and space action. I enjoyed myself thoroughly from first to last page.”

Brandon Sanderson, The New York Times bestselling author of The Stormlight Archive

“Jack Campbell’s dazzling new series is military science fiction at its best. Not only does he tell a yarn of great adventure and action, but he also develops the characters with satisfying depth. I thoroughly enjoyed this rip-roaring read, and I can hardly wait for the next book.”

Catherine Asaro, Nebula Award-winning author of Alpha

“A slam-bang good read, and yes, it kept me up at night […] Solid, thoughtful, but also exciting.”

Elizabeth Moon, Nebula Award-winning author

“Black Jack Geary is very real, very human, and so compeling he’ll leave you wanting more. Jack Campbell knows fleet actions and it shows. DAUNTLESS is the best novel of its type that I’ve read.”

David Sherman, author of the Demontech series

Fearless (#2)
“Taking pride of place alongside [the author’s] brilliant Paul Sinclair novels, Fearless is another satisfying cocktail to slake the thirst of fans who like their space operas with a refreshing moreal and intellectual chaser. It’s no wonder Hemry chose as his pen name for this saga that of one of SF’s more renowned editors. John W. Campbell would have admired the rationalism and rigor Jack Campbell has brought to these books. The Lost Fleet deserves to find a home on your bookshelf.”

SF Site

“FEARLESS is another entertaining installment in the Lost Fleet series.”

Fantasy Literature

Courageous (#3)
“Some of the best military science fiction on the shelves today, and COURAGEOUS doesn’t disappoint in the least. I’ll eagerly be awaiting the next installment in the series.”

SF Site

"Good fun."

Don D'Ammassa, Hugo Award-winning author

Valiant (#4)
“This wonderfully well-plotted story is strongly reminiscent of the old Hornblower novels, featuring exciting and believable battles. The story brings back the true meaning of romance and captures the spirit of strong men and women facing unimaginable odds with courage and honor. It carries you along on the adventure, and you’re eager to go where it takes you.”

RT Book Reviews

“The series is fast-paced and enjoyable to read… Readers who enjoyed David Weber’s Honor Harrington books, Ian Douglas’s Space Marines, or Walter Hunt’s Dark Wing series should also enjoy this series.”

SFRevu

“A great series […] Campbell continues to entertain and satisfy with VALIANT If you like military SF, The Lost Fleet is always enjoyable, and VALIANT is a worthy continuation of Black Jack Geary’s saga.”

SF Site

Relentless (#5)
“Real science fiction, as filling and nutritious as a meal of your favorite comfort foods.”

Analog

“Campbell produces one of the few series in [military science fiction] that I find consistently rewarding, and this was no exception to the rule.”

Critical Mass

“RELENTLESS offers plenty of military action, epic space battles, a cool ground war, clever intelligence operations, political intrigue, interesting ethical considerations, and social commentary.”

Fantasy Literature

Victorious (#6)
“The whole series is worth a read. This is a series of fast paced adventure. Battles take into account the vastness of space and the time involved in an engagement. Fans of Ian Douglas, David Weber and David Drake will enjoy this similar quality series.”

SFRevu

“Mixing razor-sharp military action with engaging character interaction, VICTORIOUS is as entertaining as the books which preceded it. Sheer fun; fast-paced popcorn reading.”

SF Site

“Plenty of action and tension [and] exciting, intelligent and thoughtful storytelling [...] Reads like Horatio Hornblower in space and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Strong solid sci-fi that packs a mighty punch. I will be adding Jack Campbell to my list of “must read” authors.”

Fantasy Book Review

The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier

Dreadnaught (#1)
“Combines the best parts of military SF and grand space opera to launch a new adventure series […] sets the fleet up for plenty of exciting discoveries and escapades.”

Publishers Weekly

“A fast-paced page turner […] the search for answers will keep readers entertained for years to come.”

SFRevu

Invincible (#2)
“Absorbing […] neither series addicts nor newcomers will be disappointed.”

Kirkus

“Will appeal to fans of David Drake and Gordon R. Dickson.”

RT Book Reviews

“A very gripping read […] Is it possible for such a well-established series to surprise readers and shuffle its well-established status quo? Campbell answers that question with a resounding yes in INVINCIBLE.”

SFFWorld

“Stoic heroes, large-scale space battles, and constantly-increasing stakes […] INVINCIBLE is a worthy installment of the Lost Fleet series, and sure to satisfy fans.”

SF Site

Guardian (#3)
“Well up to the high standards established by this intriguing series.”

Kirkus

“Campbell’s genius is action IN SPAAAAACE. And the battle sequences are everything you’ve come to expect from The Lost Fleet series, with the added bonus of New! Tactics!”

Tor.com

Steadfast (#4)
“The great thing about the Lost Fleet Universe is that Campbell doesn’t pull the punches […] fans of Ian Douglas, Jean Johnson, and David Weber will find something to enjoy here.”

SFRevu

Leviathan (#5)
“Campbell fully understands the implications of 3-D combat in space, including the orbital mechanics and vast distances involved, without ever succumbing to a dry recitation of mathematics. Military intelligence may be an oxymoron to some, but this novel demonstrates that intelligent military SF is entirely possible.”

Publishers Weekly

[In LEVIATHAN, Campbell] continue[s] to show his knack for telling a good and engrossing story [...] LEVIATHAN is a hugely entertaining novel, one worthy of the series, and a damned good read.”

SFFWorld

Empress of the Endless Sea Series

Standalone

The Last Full Measure
“[THE LAST FULL MEASURE] will probably appeal most to those who enjoy American historical fiction or fans of Jack Campbell’s military science fiction who want to see what he can do with a story set in the past instead of the future. I enjoyed the story as an alternate history and, perhaps, a warning.”

Fantasy Literature

“It’s brilliantly imagined and constructed […] the book handily presents its story and leaves readers wanting more.

Rambles

Collections

Ad Astra
"These stories were just a lot of fun. Some were humorous, some serious and some thought provoking. All were excellently written and not a one bored me."

Booklikes

Borrowed Time
"One of the most enjoyable reads I've had in a long time."

SFRevu

Graphic Novel

The Lost Fleet: Corsair
“A Tom Clancy thriller in space!”

Publishers Weekly

“A fine blend of action and intrigue, THE LOST FLEET: CORSAIR is a 'must-read' for connoisseurs of the genre, highly recommended.”

Midwest Book Review

“The action is thick and fast and the visuals are truly stunning.”

Sci-Fi Pulse

“Add[s] quality content to the original property that welcomes both longtime fans and newcomers.”

Comic Crusaders

“The pallet of colors to represent deep space is captivating […] like watching a classical science fiction series from years gone by […] A wonderful comic book to read and share with others.”

Outright Geekery

Stark's War Series

Stark’s War (#1)
“I was quite impressed and pleased.”

Science Fiction Chronicle

“Solidly written, action-packed mil-SF. The action scenes are very well done, the main characters fairly straightforward, the motivations for the characters clear. A good page-turner that will amply satisfy fans of this sub-genre.”

SFFWorld

“A gripping tale of military science fiction, in the tradition of Heinlein’s Starship Troopers and Haldeman’s Forever War. It serves as both a cautionary fable and a science fiction adventure, doing dual purpose and succeeding on both levels […] The characterization is right on […] the plot is sharp and crisp […] a worthy debut from Hemry, and it has the potential to join the pantheon of classic military sf stories if it gets the attention it deserves. Give this one a try.”

Absolute Magnitude

“When it comes to combat, Hemry delivers.”

William C. Dietz, New York Times bestselling author

“Gripping. Sgt. Stark is an unforgettable character […] STARK’S WAR reads as if Hemry has been there.”

Jack McDevitt, winner of the Robert A. Heinlen Award

“A rip roaring race through tomorrow’s battlefield, where knowledge is power, but stupidity still reigns. Hemry’s debut is a great yarn—and a thoughtful cautionary tale.”

Mike Shepherd, author of the Kris Longknife series

Stark’s Command (#2)
“Once again, we’re treated to a fascinating, complex look at the military mindset […] serves its purpose well and tells a damn fine story. For those who like military SF, this book more than serves the purpose, clearly claiming Hemry’s place at the Round Table of military SF writers. I’ll be looking forward to see how he resolves the story, and what else he has up his sleeve.”

Absolute Magnitude

Stark’s Crusade (#3)
“In a gripping space opera Hemry delivers an intensely satisfying read. Strong characterization and well-executed action keep the pages turning.”

RT Book Reviews

“Hemry has a solid sense of military thinking and lunar fighting, and I really liked this series.”

Philadelphia Weekly Press

“Unrelenting and gripping action [...] this entry is the final pay off that fans were hoping for.”

Fantasy Book Review

JAG in Space Series

A Just Determination (#1)
“Superior military SF […] The last third of the book recalls nothing so much as The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial in an SF setting, and it attains the same high level of achievement. Although Hemry probably has too much taste to launch a googolplexology from this book, if he were to do so, discerning readers might applaud.”

Booklist

“Nicely set up and executed […] a[n] absorbing story.”

Science Fiction Chronicle

“A trim novel and a promising series start by an author who obviously knows what he’s writing about […] avoids the blood and thunder prevalent in the field. Hemry instead opts for courtroom tension and readable interaction between finely crafted characters. This series has promise to stand on its own among similar mature works, such as Poul Anderson’s Dominic Flandry books and the Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle Moteworld collaborations.”

Starlog

“Hemry explores gallantry, honor, duty, and patriotism—as well as their opposites—in a book where both the court scenes and the space-chase scenes are page turners.”

Steve Miller, co-author of the Liaden Universe novels

“A JUST DETERMINATION is the 'Caine Mutiny' of the Space Age. A page-turning Sci-Fi thriller that captures you at the beginning and shocks you at the surprise twist in the ending.”

Capt. David E. Meadows, USN, author of The 6th Fleet and Joint Task Force series

Burden of Proof (#2)
“First-rate military SF. Another absorbing novel. Hemry’s series continues to offer outstanding suspense, realism and characterization, and this book, no less than its predecessor, only ratchets up readers’ appetites for more.”

Booklist

“Henry has pioneered a new sub-genre with his superb space ship military legal thrillers. The legal aspects are brilliantly intertwined within a fantastic military science fiction drama that should promote Mr. Hemry to a best selling admiral.”

Midwest Book Review

“A nicely understated and very effective novel of investigation and trial, with a convincing military backdrop that doesn’t fall into the excesses of most military SF. With this new series, Hemry has made the transition from potentially interesting to very interesting indeed, as his novels continue to show a steady improvement in plotting and background.”

Science Fiction Chronicle

“One of the most relevant and intelligent adult drama series being published in SF right now. Delivers on the promise of A Just Determination. A rock solid courtroom drama […] delivers the kind of white knuckle tension that makes legal dramas so popular. Hemry’s decision to wed courtroom drama to military SF has captured lightning in a bottle. He builds the story’s suspense expertly. It all culminates naturally at the court-martial, and in the best tradition, this one will keep you turning pages with the proverbial bated breath.”

SF Reviews

“Hemry cements his position as the best writer of legalistic military science fiction working today […] some of the most human, realistic, vibrant characters I’ve ever been introduced to [...] An engrossing, addictive reading experience.”

Rambles

Rule of Evidence (#3)
“One hell of a series. A humdinger. The Paul Sinclair series remains at the top of my list of Great SF Books.”

SF Reviews

“This is, in my opinion, the best of the series [...] The ethical dilemmas posed make the books interesting, and this one especially so.”

Rosboch Book Reviews

“An engrossing, page-turning story, using a combination of excellent pacing, the inherent drama of a courtroom, and a ton of realistic-feeling military detail.”

Eyrie

Against All Enemies (#4)
“Hemry’s real-world experience gives the investigation and subsequent courtroom scenes a convincing feel. If you crave a legalistic space-Hornblower, you’ll enjoy this one and you’ll look forward to what he gets into next.”

Analog

“Hemry concludes an exceptionally thoughtful and intelligent series on a strong note.”

SF Reviews

The Legacy of Dragons Series

The Pillars of Reality Series

The Dragons of Dorcastle (#1)
“[DRAGONS OF DORCASTLE'S] down-to-earth style, entertainment value, and wonderful characters made it very hard for me to resist its charms. All told, a very good book to just curl up and relax with.”

The Bibliosanctum

“The perfect mix of steampunk and fantasy […] I would recommend this book to just about anyone I know.”

The Arched Doorway

“DRAGONS OF DORCASTLE was a fantastic read [...] an action-packed and exciting book and one I can’t recommend highly enough.”

Book Lovers Life

The Hidden Masters of Marandur (#2)
“Quite a bit of fun and I really enjoyed it [...] An excellent sequel and well worth the read!”

Game Industry

“I highly recommend this to fantasy lovers. [In THE HIDDEN MASTERS OF MARANDUR], the world building has been strengthened even further [...] The pace is constant and had me finding excuses to continue the book.”

Not Yet Read

The Assassins of Altis (#3)
“[Jack Campbell] took my expectations and completely blew them out of the water, proving yet again that he can seamlessly combine steampunk and epic fantasy into a truly fantastic story.”

The Arched Doorway

The Pirates of Pacta Servanda (#4)
“I think [THE PIRATES OF PACTA SERVANDA] is by far the best book in the series so far [...] While I enjoyed pretty much every aspect of this book, like the rest of the series there is one thing that really makes it stand out, and that are its characters.”

The Arched Doorway

The Servants of the Storm (#5)
“When my audiobook was delivered around midnight, I sat down and told myself I would listen for an hour or so before I went to sleep. I finished it in almost 12 straight hours [...] I can say with complete honesty that THE SERVANTS OF THE STORM by Jack Campbell is one of the best books I’ve ever had the pleasure to listen to.”

The Arched Doorway

The Genesis Fleet Series

Vanguard (#1)
“Campbell’s skillfully constructed tale keeps a riveting pace, making each character’s personal stakes into fundamental threads woven into a high-energy whole.”

Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Sympathetic characters combined with authentic details of military maneuvers on land and in space are the hallmark of a writer still at the top of his form, comparable to authors such as David Drake and David Weber.”

Booklist

“An imaginative and in-depth novel that spans time and space, VANGUARD will make you want to explore the vast possibilities the universe has to offer.”

Bustle

“Plenty of high-stakes action and deep-space intrigue that is deftly constructed, consistently surprising and thoroughly engaging.”

RT Book Reviews

“Daring escapades, boarding actions, ground combat…entertainingly full of explosions. If you enjoyed his previous work, you’ll like this one, too.”

Locus

“It’s the quiet integrity of Campbell’s cast that will have you cheering…and waiting impatiently for a sequel.”

Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

“VANGUARD is another winner for me, both as a prequel series and as a fresh start. It’s got that excellent readability that is present in all Campbell’s novels, and when the story is itself engrossing you just can’t lose. VANGUARD also has the added benefit of being a great place for newcomers to join […] In short, highly recommended.”

SFFWorld

“Jack Campbell’s VANGUARD starts a new series with a bang. Honestly, it reads like first rate, action-packed, historical fiction—only this history is set hundreds of years in an all too believable future. There’s plenty going on from multiple, diverse perspectives, and the characters come alive in the very best ways. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next installment!”

Taylor Anderson, The New York Times bestselling author of the Destroyermen Series

“VANGUARD is the book Campbell’s Lost Fleet readers have been waiting for, whether they knew it or not. From the moment the young Robert Geary takes his first breath of air on a new planet, the story grabbed me by the throat and didn’t let go. Strong characters, complex politics on multiple worlds, battles against impossible odds, this book has the whole package. And for those who haven’t read the Lost Fleet books yet…start with VANGUARD. Like…the moment you can order it.”

Elizabeth Moon, author of THE SPEED OF DARK

Ascendant (#2)
“The second installment of the Genesis Fleet […] offers a great entry point for new readers looking for realistic military science fiction […] Campbell builds compelling characters and surrounds them with authentic details of skirmishes in space, on the ground, and everywhere in between that make this adventure a page-turner of the first order.”

Booklist

“The second book in the Genesis Fleet series launches readers right back into the early, tumultuous years of Glenlyon, and the rich characters who have already made this series so engaging [...] The action and suspense of this voyage will certainly hold readers’ interest.”

RT Book Reviews

“This prequel series to Campbell’s Lost Fleet saga offers fascinating backstory, but also stands alone nicely.”

Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

Triumphant (#3)
“[Jack Campbell’s] characters are well-drawn, with fully fleshed-out backgrounds and temperaments […] A solid entry to extend an always reliable sequence.”

Kirkus

“Campbell has a sure hand with military SF balanced with political intrigue and heroic protagonists ready to spring into action. His fans will be thrilled, and readers of John Ringo and David Weber should find a lot to like here.

Library Journal

The Lost Stars Series

Tarnished Knight (#1)
“Campbell maintains the military, political and even sexual tension with sure-handed proficiency […] Campbell focuses on the human element: two strong, well-developed characters locked in mutual dependence, fumbling their way toward a different and hopefully brighter future. What emerges is a fascinating and vividly rendered character study, fully and expertly contextualized.”

Kirkus

"If there is at this present time a better writer of pure popcorn explosive-BOOM military space opera working in the field, I haven’t found them.”

Tor.com

“TARNISHED KNIGHT is as much an intellectual puzzle as it is a space adventure. The political and social aspects of overturning a centrally run government that controls its people through terror and strict regulations are truly interesting.”

Fantasy Literature

“TARNISHED KNIGHT proves that Campbell can continue to produce entertaining, thought-provoking far future, space-based science fiction. In an era where fantasy is dominant over the science fiction side of the SFF tree, I’d welcome more US authors [who] write and publish novels like Jack Campbell does.”

SFFWorld

Perilous Shield (#2)
"[Campbell's] character development is outstanding […] The universe he has created is full of things to marvel at, and his ability to depict both positive and negative aspects of society remains a strong suit in his writing.”

Fantasy Literature

Imperfect Sword (#3)
“Campbell’s third Lost Stars military SF adventure (after The Lost Stars: Perilous Shield) delivers all his signature attractions […] a fast-paced thrill ride that leaps nimbly from harrowing to heartbreaking to heroic. The tentative steps of establishing a new society are no less intense. Both new and returning readers will dive right in.”

Publishers Weekly

“Even 13 novels into the universe [...] the ride is worth it. Fans of the numerous military science fiction will find something to like here.”

SFRevu

“A wonderful action-packed installment […] This is the kind of book that leaves me hungering for another helping of Campbell’s space combat.”

Fantasy Literature

Shattered Spear (#4)
“Anyone who likes space battles, planetary scale politics, and stories with an interstellar scale will enjoy all of the Lost Stars and Lost Fleet novels. [Campbell's stories are] well told, with heroes, villains, and explosions enough to satisfy anyone [and] some real moral depth. If you have enjoyed other military SF series, this is a must-read.”
