Veterans will tell their stories in Top Cow’s Soldier Stories
Top Cow gives alternative veteran voices a platform to tell their stories in Soldier Stories. The anthology is set to release the week of Veterans Day on November 9th to honor veterans, including the creators of this anthology: Brian Anthony (USA), Jalysa Conway (UAF), Megan Ferrell Burke (USMC), and Rev. William J. Bellamy (ARNG). Ken Pisani (AMP’D), is a Los Angeles Times best-selling author integral in organizing and making this anthology happen.
These stories will allow readers to step briefly into the boots of men and women who bravely served, to witness heightened versions of the sacrifices that they made during their time in the military. Soldier Stories features four compelling tales of military conflict, all written by veterans who served from the Vietnam era to Afghanistan. These first-person accounts of real-life warfare have been reimagined a cross a variety of genres from sci-fi to horror to personal memoir. What’s it like to wait out a chemical attack? How does it feel to abandon your allies? In a world of push-button warfare, has killing gotten too easy? How do you go on when the war is over but the struggle is not?
These are personal stories, compelling stories, stories that will haunt and surprise you. Because every soldier has a story.
