Publisher's Summary

Ever since Master Gunnery Sergeant Fick came blitzing out of nowhere in Maximum Violence (Arisen, book 4), he has emerged as the closest thing to a consensus fan favorite character for the series. He is best known and most beloved for his ribald, profane, merciless, and generally hilarious insults, quips, and bon mots, which are so characteristic that listeners have affectionately dubbed them: Fickisms.

Now, in response to popular demand, and collected here for the first time, are all the very best tidbits of Fick's wit and wisdom, from all 14 main series books.

And thrown in as an extra special bonus, you can also enjoy the most priceless lines from both Predator, and Aliyev the Kazakh.

Wit. Wisdom. And Magic Marker Dicks.

I'm still laughing 3rd time around

If you have any military experience, country doesn't matter, we all met that Sargent Major, that can cuss, swear, and make you blush, and fear him. Not for sensitive, or thin skinned, I laugh just thinking about it.

Not for me

I like the series, but this isn't for me because it has no storyline to it. I thought it was going to be a short story, but in truth, it’s just Fick's comments. It was a true shit sandwich, so since I don’t need to take a bite, I’ll past on it.

Great One Liners

This book is all one liners from Pred, Juice, Olyev and of course Fick.
Love all the one liners from these great charters in the Arisen series.

Was great to hear from Fick again.

I enjoyed this and learnt some new sayings that I may or may not be able to share at work!! Thanks for some fun in this dark and dreary time.

Boooo, Why did I get this book?

Because I love the series? But this is not worth anything, it doesn’t add or clear up anything in the series, it just a bunch of one liners with no purpose or meaning. Total waste of money and time, and makes me look side-eyed at Mr Fuchs.
So I hope he makes up by starting a new series with one of the many wonderful characters all while he gets the Netflix series off the ground. My vote for leading man is Liev Schreiber from the Showtime series Ray Donavan.

Gunny Fick!!!

One of my favorite book characters ever!
Fickisms was awesome! Each Fickism took me back to the moment in the book where Fick blasted out some of the funniest quips Ive ever heard!

disappointing

I expected a lot more given the quality of the Arisen series. The sayings are overwhelmingly weak, tame, and not funny.

Had me laughing out loud

What a great break from the Arisen series. Just finished book 4 and needed a diversion. I thoroughly enjoyed the change. R.C. Bray does an excellent job with different voices. This is not a continuation of the story. I need to write some of these down and see where I can fit them into a conversation. 😉
