It is Veteran’s Day in the United States–a good day to feature the charitable anthology published last year by The Science Fiction Show: Battlespace–Military Science Fiction Anthology.
The anthology is a collection of science fiction short stories and flash fiction pieces from authors around the globe. Volume 1 has a focus on the military, past, present and future. Conceived and produced by Jason Tudor, Keith Houin and Michael J. Wistock of the Science Fiction Show, Battlespace serves to raise money for wounded soldiers via the Warrior Cry Music Project.
Battlespace has drawn unparalleled praise for its quality and purpose. Authors contributing to the anthology largely donated back to the cause everything they earned on the book’s publication. Many of the well-published contributing authors are veterans or have close ties to one aspect of the military or another, and the authenticity of the stories shine through. The reviews and ratings are solid on Goodreads.
Battlespace was even featured on the Department of Defense Webcast and blog, “Armed with Science.” Click here for more about the webcast and blog.
About Warrior Cry Music Project
The Warrior Cry Music Project is a group of volunteers who work with wounded veterans across the country, providing musical instruments and instruction, working closely with therapists to create a positive educational and therapeutic program. Music is a great form of physical and mental therapy. Warrior Cry gives wounded soldiers something positive to work toward and helps to get their minds off of their injuries. Music also helps get our wounded soldiers out of their shell and regain an interest in socializing with others. Warrior Cry works with other groups and non-profits to help better the lives of veterans that were wounded in battle. The foundation’s website is www.warriorcry.org
