A Future Chron Story.
What happens in space may not stay in space. Many countries today are preparing for space war. Many people are not aware of this. How will it start? How will it be conducted? How will it affect the Earth?
Set in the mid twenty-first century "War Through The Pines" finds Jack Jackson (of the previous story "Whatsoever You Do") and his son Donner witness to the first war in space. Donner had already discovered a covert signal coming from the secret 'Battle Stars' in orbit before the war. Destruction of the Battle Stars begins the war which soon spreads to the Earth's surface and all the world.
"War Through the Pines" is the second story in the Future Chron Series. This series of related short stories published by Future Chron Publishing ranges from the near future to the far millennial, from familiar Earth-based settings to distant worlds.
This is hard science fiction, old school.
