war storiesWar Stories: New Military Science Fiction, co-edited by Jaym Gates and Andrew Liptak, is now available. Military science fiction stories fill these pages.  Here’s the back cover copy:

“War is everywhere. Not only among the firefights, in the sweat dripping from heavy armor and the clenching grip on your weapon, but also wedging itself deep into families, infiltrating our love letters, hovering in the air above our heads. It’s in our dreams and our text messages. At times it roars with adrenaline, while at others it slips in silently so it can sit beside you until you forget it’s there.

Join Joe Haldeman, Linda Nagata, Karin Lowachee, Ken Liu, Jay Posey, and more as they take you on a tour of the battlefields, from those hurtling through space in spaceships and winding along trails deep in the jungle with bullets whizzing overhead, to the ones hiding behind calm smiles, waiting patiently to reveal itself in those quiet moments when we feel safest. War Stories brings us 23 stories of the impacts of war, showcasing the systems, combat, armor, and aftermath without condemnation or glorification.”

This features my story “The Valkyrie.”  It’s the prequel to my story “Voice of the Martyrs.”  Speaking of the latter, it’s currently available on the Intergalactic Medicine Show (along with an interview with me).

You can buy the book from Apex Publications: Trade PaperbackeBook.



Things Don't Go SmoothFIREFLY:  THINGS DON’T GO SMOOTH is a supplement for the FIREFLY RPG which I was one of the writers on.  “THINGS DON’T GO SMOOTH presents a baker’s dozen of shady crews, crime bosses, megalomaniacs, and unexplainable phenomena designed to get in the way of your Crew. Each includes a wealth of story hooks, supporting characters, locations, ships, and background material to help you bring the ‘Verse to your table.”

You can buy the book at DriveThruRPG.com!
