John Ringo's latest Mil-SF adventure begins when aliens drag a stargate into the solar system and declare it an exit to the Pan-Galactic highway. Unfortunately they just build the roads, they don't police them, so when the Horvath come through the gate and set themselves up as our overlords the roadbuilders tell us we're on our own. If you're familiar with the author's books, or the Yankee tenet that the book is named for you know that we're not about to settle for that state of affairs for long. From official release/information:
Product Description: Beginning a new military science fiction series by a New York Times bestselling author John Ringo.
Contact with friendly aliens led to a gate to other worlds being brought to the solar system. At first trade came through. Then the Horvath cam through and annihilated three cities by dropping asteroids on them to demonstrate that they were taking over. Earth's governments have accepted the fact. But Tyler Vernon hasn't, and he has bigger plans than just gitting rid of the Horvath.
