So who's your favorite BT author?  My vote goes to Robert Thurston, the author of "The Jade Phoenix Trilogy", "I Am Jade Falcon", "Freebirth", and "Falcon Rising".
Number two for me is Blaine Lee Pardoe, although I've only read Exodus Road by him, his style really works for me.

BLP is a great guy, Ive known him for many years, via emails
You have to understand the code of duty and honor that rules those who pilot these engines of destruction. Placing such an awesome weapon in the hands of an individual implies a similar gesture of trust

Curiously I haven't read that one yet.
Time to grab a new book it seems. :)

His name is William H. Keith jr., the Gray Death books were really good, and as they were on a company-size level and felt more like a story from the tabletop in contrast to the later politic driven plots (which I also really like). I think this made them the best point to enter the lore of Battletech, as they get you hooked on the lore and the following "the sword and the dagger" provided you more information on the overall politics and houses you got to know in the Gray Death trilogy.

EDIT: Forgot my own contribution to the thread: I'm reading through all of the classic novels again and I'm at "Threads of Ambition" now. I like Loren Colemans books, also the already mentioned Blaine Lee Pardoe, especially his Archer Christifori books. But I have to say, although some of the books may be cheesy or a bit harder to read then others I always enjoyed every book of the series (let's just pretend that one book never happened), so I appreciate the work of all the authors that went into this great BT-fiction.

Pardoe was good, I liked Christifori was a character/officer trying to do the right thing with the cast off of others.
