Editorial Reviews

Review

“The 21 stories in this anthology ably demonstrate the imaginative possibilities of war as a theme in contemporary speculative fiction. [Lain’s] selections prove that the best speculative fiction, no matter how futuristic, is always about the here and now.”
Publishers Weekly

“Thought-provoking, brilliantly curated . . . every entry is meritorious and well-wrought . . . A welcome addition to the landscape that SF used to frequently visit.”
—Paul Di Filippo, Locus

“Lain has done the heavy-lifting of curation, and delivered a rucksack-ready primer in the state of the world, the near-past and –future, and where writing about war may take us next. There is little doubt that these explorations will ignite conversation and thoughtful analysis.”
Red Bull Rising

“. . . speculative fiction is used effectively to look at the underbelly of conflict and tries to make some sense of it beyond the headlines and rhetoric of politicians. An intelligent read that is as mind-blowing as no-man’s land.”
Starburst Magazine
