I have a new short story included in the ARMORED anthology, released today!
Set in a futuristic Africa, Helmet tells the story of a young man and his brother as they try to survive in a slum that is swarming with murderous, faceless armored soldiers. Walls can protect or they can imprison, and in this place they do both.
And the anthology contains dozens of other great stories that revolve around the notion of powered armor, starting from the kind that Iron Man has and evolving in a lot of really crazy and amazing directions. From the book jacket:
"Armor up for a metal-pounding feast of action, adventure and amazing speculation by topnotch writers (including Nebula-award winner Jack McDevitt, Sean Williams, Dan Abnet, Simon Green, and Jack Campbell) on a future warrior that might very well be just around the corner. Science fiction readers and gamers have long been fascinated by the idea of going to battle in suits of powered combat armor or at the interior controls of giant mechs."If you'd like to read Helmet, please buy the book online at any of these stores -- or at your favorite local indie bookshop. Only $7.99!
