I only recently realized what an awesome amount of tuckerization (naming characters after real life fans or acquaintances) there is in Weber's books.
The ones I can point out so far are:
- Michael Ankenbrandt (resistance fighter Michael Ankenbrandt)
- Tim Bolgeo (Petty Officer Bolgeo and Tennessee Bolgeo)
- Joe Buckley (various, obviously)
- David Mattingly (Harrington Armsman Simon Mattingly)
- Eric Flint (bar owner Eric Flint)
- Russell Isler (StateSec Captain Isler)
- Thomas Marrone (MLF propagandist Thomas Marrone)
- Timothy Zahn (Sidemoran analyst Tim Zahn)
Did you guys spot any others?
