As a member of the SFFWorld team (lead US book reviewer, forum moderator) for the past decade and more, I've come across quite a few folks: fans, published authors, and people behind the scenes. One of those people is writer and editor N.E. White. Nila has been editing anthologies comprised mainly of stories from members of the SFFWorld writing community, which is a very vibrant and strong community. I'd even say over the past few years, the writer's forum/community has been the most consistent and active of the many subforums. Each year Nila has compiled anthology, she has featured a big name, published writer. The first anthology featured Michael J. Sullivan and Hugh Howey, last year's featured Mark Lawrence and this year's anthology features another favorite author: Elizabeth Moon. (Yes, that New York Times best selling and award winning Elizabeth Moon who wrote a trilogy of books that resides in my Omnibus Hall of Fame).
My part in this was small, I read most of the submitted stories, provided feedback (whether the story should our shouldn't be included) and gave each story a full edit. So, without further ado, here's Wars to End All Wars: Alternate Tales from the Trenches.
Alternate tales set during the first World War, this short story collection takes history and tweaks it.2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the start of World War 1. Seven authors, including the award-winning Science Fiction and Fantasy author, Elizabeth Moon, commemorate that event by writing stories set during the great war, adding their own, sometimes speculative, interpretations and answering the question, "What if...?"
