I love it when I get books in the mail that I want to read right now. I have a story in War And Space: Recent Combat, edited by Rich Horton and Sean Wallace, but honestly, when the book arrived, I thought I had ordered it to read. Then I looked and realized this was that anthology, the one Rich and Sean had contacted me about a while ago. I still want to read it. Lots of good writers here, from Nancy Kress to Robert Reed to Alastair Reynolds and so many more. This is an overview of sf war stories published in the past decade, including some classics. My contribution here is “The Observer.” There are many, many other stories you’ll want to read or reread. You can pick up the anthology at your favorite bookstore or order it here. There’s an ebook edition as well, but I don’t know all the platforms that it’s on. Go, enjoy. I know I will.
