One of the great things that I have found while building and populating the website is that it has uncovered for me and much of the class classmates who have are very accomplished. John Hemry (3rd Co.) is a very accomplished and pretty famous military science fiction writer writing under the pseudonym Jack Campbell. I do not exaggerate when I say that I learned that he is a big deal. His works even have a fan club!

About Jack Campbell
“Jack Campbell” is the pseudonym for John G. Hemry, a retired Naval officer (and graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis). As Jack Campbell, he writes The Lost Fleet series of military science fiction novels, as well as the Beyond the Frontier continuation of The Lost Fleet, and The Lost Stars series (a spin-off of The Lost Fleet). He has also written the Stark’s War series and the Sinclair/”JAG in space” series, and has written many shorter stories featuring space opera, fantasy, time travel, and alternate history. Many of these stories can be found in the three Jack Campbell ebook anthologies. He lives with his wife (the Indomitable S) and three children (two of whom are autistic) in Maryland.
We’ve added 43 of John’s books to the Class Author’s page (he is the 10th author on the page), 28 fiction and six nonfiction articles to the Professional Writings page (he is the 12th writer on the page) and four interviews and a podcast to the Classmates on Video page where we have videos from almost 40 classmates.
