Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms. – Angela Carter

Editing client publishes his first military SF novel

A recent Screenshot_20200227-153925editing client has published his first military sci-fi novel.

Jermey Mapes' "The Ammalgathon" tells the tale of Operative Fox, a member of the Arsagorian Special Forces Regiment.

From the book description: "Third-world countries like Mekahnashan rarely warrant deployment of 'The Animals,' but the invasion stalls, and Command wants a harder push where the grunts have gone soft. Fox’s team touches down for intel, and they should have torn through the opposition with ease. Farmers and fishermen don’t fair well against silencers. But war seldom goes as planned . . . Fox’s team is wiped out, and trapped behind enemy lines, he’s forced to build a new one from survivors of the initial invasion. They are just as much in need as he is, and their collective survival is dependent upon cooperation and trust. But how can there be trust in a war built on lies? The others didn’t see what Fox saw. Command hadn’t told him what he would find. It wasn’t farmers or fishermen that massacred his team. It was something that had been watching and waiting all along. It was older, wiser, and far deadlier . . . and it wasn’t human."

Mapes' book can be purchased online.
