Soldiers fight to survive.
They fight each other, and they fight the demons inside.
Sometimes, they fight real monsters.
SNAFU collects stories of ancient myths, time travellers, horrors in the old west…
and the soldiers who fight them.
Featuring some of the best writers working in the field today.
Jonathan Maberry, Greig Beck and James A Moore lead the way, with a contingent of emerging authors to back them up.
Fight or die.
SNAFU: Wolves at the Door will bring the bite, with soldiers fighting for their lives against were-animals.
* * * * *
In the blackest night or under the full moon, danger is lurking.
It’s survival at all costs when you’re fighting against an enemy that could tear you apart – or convert you to the other side.
Against the backdrop of an untamed wilderness or the dark depths of the city, the ultimate clash between the forces of man and nature rages on.
Whether battling the monster within or a war around them – these soldiers may find the cost could prove too great.
In the 70s and 80s, animals ruled. Anacondas, piranha, giant crocodiles/alligators/lizards, mutated bears near nuclear power stations, prehistoric sharks all featured heavily in books and films, when bio-horror was at its modern peak.
This anthology of military-bio-horror stories is inspired by those classic days.
Think Greg McLean’s Rogue, Lake Placid, Eight-legged Freaks, Anaconda, Meg, Prophecy, Deep Blue Sea, and other films/books where people (in this case soldiers) are fighting against mutated, weird, or ultra-dangerous animals.
Join some of the best writers working today, along with some SNAFU favourites, for an unnaturally good time.

Be they straight-up monsters or nightmares behind a human mask, they track us and they kill us.
Sometimes, they play with their food, where death would be a kindness. But there is hope.
There are those who search out the monsters, those who hunt the hunters.
These are their stories.
Featuring 13 stories of military horror by some of the best known and emerging writers in the genre.
"By now I've read the entire SNAFU series and I can wholeheartedly recommend 'em -- every one of them delivers the goods."
—Tim Miller, Director of Deadpool
