Two years ago–July 2012–The Science Fiction Show released Battlespace, Volume 1–Military Science Fiction Anthology. The book is still available at Amazon in its Kindle format for $3.99, or used through Amazon dealers.
The anthology is a great collection of military science fiction stories from authors around the globe, and was produced for a worthy cause. 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. From the back cover:
“100% of all proceeds from the sales of this book will be donated to the Warrior Cry Music Project of Washington, D.C., to benefit soldiers injured in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. For more, visit www.warriorcry.org.”
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.
Battlespace was even featured on the Department of Defense Webcast and blog, “Armed with Science.” Click here for more about the webcast and blog.
From Amazon Customer Reviews:

“Actually I liked the WHOLE BOOK.“–Victrix
“I’ve been following this project since its inception, so it won’t surprise anyone to hear I jumped to Amazon and grabbed my Kindle copy as soon as it was available. I’m glad I did, too. There are some real gems in here.”–Amazon Customer
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
