I've always liked his books, though my favorite series of his is the Lost Regiment series. Sadly, its been on an extended hiatus for some time now, but according to his website, he's in plans to FINALLY continue the series. So, yay! In a year or three I'll finally get to enjoy another book in the series.  :) (I know, I know, you're saying to yourself, why would you bother waiting so long on the next book in a series? This guy's slower than Robert Jordan! Well, its worth it. And technically, this is the second series, he finished the first, and then did the first book in this new series, but left us hanging afterwards).

"Book Description
When Union Colonel Andrew Keane led his blue-coated soldiers aboard the transport ship, he could not have foreseen that their next port of call would be neither in the North nor the South, but on an alternate world where no human was free. Storm-swept through a space-time warp, Keane’s regiment was shipwrecked in an alien land, a land where all that stood between them and destruction was the power of rifles over swords, spears, and crossbows.

Into this serfdom ruled by nobles and the Church, Keane and his men brought the radical ideas of freedom, equality, and democracy—and a technology centuries ahead of the world they must now call home. Yet all their knowledge and training might not save them from the true rulers there—creatures to whom all humans were mere cattle, bred for sacrifice!"
