On the contested Iron Flats, two young recruits face their first battle. Will they die? Will glory cover them or ignominy taint their name? Only the morrow will tell.

Watching over them is enigmatic veteran, Von. He knows that when soldiers fail, the army relies on veterans to fix them... whatever it takes...

About the Author

Born far too many years ago, Nigel now live in Milton Keynes, middle England, with his good lady wife, and works in the IT industry in Berkhamsted. He attends the Northampton SF Writers Workshop each month, where contributors work is subjected to very constructive critique.

Nigel's ambition is to win the lottery and retire to the romantic coastline of Cornwall, there to remain until he become a part of the rugged scenery in the fullness of time. He has a motor bike that's rusting nicely, and a car that serves as target practice for any birds that happen to be around. Sometimes he and his wife go for a cycle ride. Sort of. He says "We pedal for about 200 yards then pause while pretending to adjust the chain or something. One day we hope to reach the end of the road."

Nigel has written several short stories, including The Tower, published in Shoes, Ships and Cadavers by NewCon Press, and Waif, published by Greyhart Press. He has also written a children's fantasy novel, The Scrapdragon, that he is looking to place. Currently he is working on a series of vignettes under the working title of The Village, a collection of quirky tales with a linking theme.

Well written military sci-fi/fantasy. There's not a lot of action but it's an interesting look at the daily routine of a soldier's life, which should read realistically despite the fantastical setting of the story. I do wish there was more plot to this story. There's a lot of set-up for little delivery. This short story is based on a setting found in a novel, Prism, by the author. I'm interested in reading Prism because what I saw of the setting in this story hinted at a well-developed world.

I generally don't like military stories, but this was well written and did not neglect the characters in favor of the fighting so I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

The story is well thought out and written, but I hate gutter British dialog.
