“Military SF at its best.” — review

“I was transposed back 60 years ... when we scraped slit trenches into the ground and laid in the path of an advancing group of tanks.” — review

On the contested Iron Flats, two young recruits face their first battle. Will they die? Will glory cover them or ignominy taint their name? Only the morrow will tell.

Watching over them is enigmatic veteran, Von. He knows that when soldiers fail, the army relies on veterans to fix them... whatever it takes...

Starship Troopers meets archers and spider-cavalry in this military fantasy story from an author who knows what life is like inside the military.

This Greyhart Press book is a novelette, a story size suitable to read in a single sitting. At 12,000 words, if this was a paperback, it would be about 48 pages.

Also by Nigel Edwards: ‘The Cookie Tin’: Imagine a device that lets you feel another person's emotions. How would you use it? How would IT use YOU?

Born far too many years ago, Nigel now lives in Milton Keynes, middle England, with his good lady wife, and works in the IT industry. He attends the Northampton SF Writers Workshop each month, where contributors' work is subjected to very constructive critique.Nigel's ambition is to win the lottery and retire to the romantic coastline of Cornwall, there to remain until he becomes a part of the rugged scenery in the fullness of time. He used to have a motorbike but now just has a car that serves as target practice for any birds that happen to be around. Sometimes he and his wife go for a cycle ride. Sort of. He says, "We pedal for about 200 yards then pause while pretending to adjust the chain or something. One day we hope to reach the end of the road."Nigel has written several short stories, including The Tower, published in Shoes, Ships and Cadavers by NewCon Press, and Waif, Garrison, The Cookie Tin and Ferryman, all published by Greyhart Press. He has also written a children's fantasy novel, The Scrapdragon, that he is looking to place, and is currently working on a Gothic horror novel.
