It’s official: War Stories will be launching on Kickstarter at 1200 hrs Eastern Time on Monday, -October 14th.
War has been speculated about in science fiction literature from the earliest days of the genre. From George Tomkyns Chesney’s The Battle of Dorking and H.G. Well’s War of the Worlds & War In the Air to Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers to Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet Series and Dan Abnett’s Embedded, science fiction literature has long had something to say about war in its. Now, it’s time to tell some new stories. War Stories is an anthology coming from Apex Publications that looks to the modern state and the future of war through the words of some of the best short fiction authors writing today.
Our cover art is by the fantastic, Hugo Award winning artist Galen Dara, who’s worked for such places as Fireside Magazine, Lightspeed Magazine, Geek Love and Apex’s own Glitter and Mayhem anthology.
Our authors include original and reprint fiction from:
Yoon Ha Lee
James L. Sutter
…and more to be announced soon!
Set your calendars accordingly and get ready for action.
|We have some great new releases for young and middle readers!|
About the Author
Surf journalist DC Green has won multiple big awards, had thousands of articles published in over forty countries and roamed the world’s greatest surf spots with the likes of eleven-times world champion Kelly Slater. Children’s author DC Green has won two very small awards, had five children’s novels published in one country and Kelly Slater no longer returns his calls. DC doesn’t mind. He loves motivating even the most reluctant of readers and writers. His school shows, that have toured through every Australian state, have been acclaimed as ‘bizarre, egotistical, enthralling, funny and not to be missed’, while DC’s humorous fantasy Erasmus James series has been hailed ‘the finest written in the history of English literature about mutants chooks and ninja horses’.

Q. Out of all of your books, which book (or series) is your most favorite?
A. Difficult call since I have many favorites for different reason. Of my past books they would be The Skinner and Brass Man, of the three coming out it’s The Departure, but now of course, my favorite is what I’m now working on.
Q. What is your inspiration behind the Owner Series?
A. I wanted to try something different from my usual Polity stories and, just like my Spatterjay series, found inspiration from a few of my previous short stories. These appeared in my collection The Engineer and its second version The Engineer ReConditioned and are Proctors, The Owner and Tiger Tiger.
