Nobody can really say.
“Everybody was in a different War. Nobody's War is quite the same as anyone else's.”
These words were from a Vietnam Veteran counselor.
Truer words have never been spoken, so in this book we don't try to answer the question.
Instead we bring you thoughtful stories not only of War, but the people affected, and the aftermath.
In this book you'll find stories of alternative Wars as imagined by 26 authors of speculative fiction. Perhaps some of them will provide some insight into why we keep repeating what simply seems like a really bad idea.
Best of British Science Fiction 2020 is once again edited by Donna Scott, a recent chair of the BSFA and a distinguished poet, writer, and stand-up comedian. Donna is also a free-lance editor who has worked behind the scenes for a number of major publishers over the course of several years.

About the Authors
With aliens or angels? Or a ground hog?
Bleak despair? Martial fervor? Or a belly laugh?
Whatever the Apocalypse. It will be borne by people and their families and their dogs and most of all, it will challange their notions of themselves.
The best selling “Alternative” series continues with the unique look at the Apocalypse, brought to you in the sometimes serious, sometimes funny, but always quality you’ve come to expect from B Cubed Press.
This book contains stories from writers in seven countries.
They range from the wildly popular blogger Jim Wright. In this book Jim publishes his first short fiction, The Deserter. A war that brings the hosts of heaven to earth as you’ve never imagined them before.
But wait, there is more. Mike Resnick, one of the most widely read science fiction masters of the 20th and 21st century brings his vision of the final play in an alien invasion, as he brings you to know the The Dog.
From Greece, we have Christine Lucas, a retired Airforce Officer, from Nigeria, Ugonna-Ora Owoh, recipient of a 2018 Young Romantics/Keats Shelley prize, a 2019 Erbacce Prize and winner of the 2019 Stephen A Dibiase International poetry prize.
The writers have multiple and varied backgrounds, Henry Gasko, author of Living in the Gleam of an Unsheathed Sword, was born in a displaced persons camp in Yugoslavia after World War Two, raised on a vegetable farm in Canada, and is now living in Australia (international law prohibits publishing an Apocalypse Anthology without at least one Australian).
The list also includes writers from New Zealand, the UK, Canada, USA, Texas to name a few. A book worth buying.
Jim Wright (of Stonekettle Station) imagines Trump giving the Gettysburg Address. Blaze Ward, Daniel Kimmel, Janka Hobbs and I explore dystopias. Marleen Barr and Adam Troy-Castro envision humorous, kinky, and scatological endings. What can I say? It rocks.
Imagine Holmes trying to stop a diabolical doctor creating human animal hybrids - attacking a cult that worships man eating plants - taking on a mermaid client - using his deductive skills to track down missing time travelers.

Look! There on the field! Does that little girl stand a chance against the ghosts of a town's unspoken past?
What did you find there in the ground, Robin, beneath your shovel blade? Could it be the answer to everything you've ever wanted?
From deserted islands to an isolated cabin in the Carolina woods, from an Arizona film set to a small Mexican town, from a bloody riverbank in Vietnam to the coal-choked streets of Cheapside, the Stories We Tell After Midnight series has invited the reader into a world of shadows almost forgotten by the cold glare of the modern world. This, the third and final volume of the series, offers up more tales of revenge, of hunger, and of the false light of redemption—but only to those who once more dare turn the page.

And all through the town,
Not a soul stirred,
No one dared make a sound…
Welcome to Deathlehem, where…
… Krampus, not Santa, brings the holiday cheer…
… the lights on the tree, so festive and bright, skitter and crawl and possess a lethal bite…
… malicious little elves, not a jolly one, know if you’ve been naughty—or nice…
… family gatherings often turn deadly.
So enter… if you dare.
A collection of 23 holiday horrors benefiting the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

And while this book explores theology and beliefs, it is written to be kind as well as thoughtful, and at times funny. It will give you belly laughs, but it will also give understanding of the notion of believing. It will remind you that no matter what you believe, we make this journey together.
There are poems by some wonderful modern thinkers including Gwyndyn T. Alexander and Jane Yolen, that will explore the nature of our world.
Essays by David Brin and David Gerrold that explore the nature of why we believe what we do.
And then there are the stories. Funny stories, like First, that explains how Hell got started. Serious stories of redemption, as seen in Izzy Tells no Lies. Stories that explore familiar themes of the trials of Job, as seen by those around him. Questions are raised if we would even recognize a returning messiah after 2000 years of interpretations of the beliefs.
And most important, they are well written with craft and skill that you have come to expect from B Cubed authors.

And those good guys are the Space Force!
This final nail in the coffin of a peaceful collaboration in space is documented in epic stories of gay aliens, shiny probes, space walls, and of course: the USS Pence.
Never have so few. spent so much, in such snazzy uniforms, to make (echo chamber please) GUNS IN SPACE, a reality.
