A new kickstarter just launched: War Stories, an anthology of military science fiction edited by SF Signal contributors and friends Andrew Liptak and Jaym Gates.

War has been speculated about in science fiction literature from the earliest days of the genre. From George Tomkyns Chesney’s The Battle of Dorking and H.G. Well’s War of the Worlds & “War In the Air” to Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers to Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet Series and Dan Abnett’s Embedded, science fiction literature has long had something to say about war. Now, it’s time to tell some new stories. War Stories is an anthology that looks to the modern state and the future of war through the words of some of the best short fiction authors writing today.

The cover art is by the fantastic, Hugo Award winning artist Galen Dara, who’s worked for such places as Fireside Magazine, Lightspeed Magazine, Geek Love and Apex’s own Glitter and Mayhem anthology.

The author lineup includes original and reprint fiction from:

  • Joe Haldeman
  • Keith Brooke
  • Jake Kerr
  • Yoon Ha Lee
  • Ken Liu
  • T.C. McCarthy’s
  • Linda Nagata
  • Mike Sizemore
  • Janine Spendlove
  • James L. Sutter

..with more to be announced soon.
