War Stories, a collection of short stories written by veterans, touches upon every aspect of military life from hard combat to losing a comrade, to making love after being blown up by a mortar to honoring the war dead to remembering the Indian Wars, WWII, lost loves, and surrender to a medical system that never understands its military patients and yet is designed to serve only them. This anthology, featuring new and previously published fiction, is loaded with the imaginative powers of veterans from every era of war since the Korean War. With selections from 27 authors complemented with art by veteran Robert Wilson, this collection is packed not only with stories that bleed off the page and into your mind, but also with a new understanding of military life for those who have never experienced it. Edited by MilSpeak Foundation (501c3) director Sally Drumm and The New Short Fiction Series director Sally Shore. MilSpeak Foundation promotes creative work by military people. The New Short Fiction Series is Los Angeles' longest running Spoken Word series and is supported by a Pasadena Arts Council EMERGE grant.
