As a kid I was always fascinated by Vietnam. Probably because of how cool Magnum PI and his buddies seemed to be, and the men service to their country made them into. Loyal, competent, and deadly with a 1911. But I also dug the helicopter pilots. I dug the style of jungle warfare and the story of a well armed few surrounded by the armed-to-the-teeth many. A theme touched on in James Cameron’s Aliens. The greatest SciFi Space Marine movie of all time.
The Galaxy’s Edge Series is getting huge sales and wonderful reviews from Star Wars readers who feel let down by the current direction Disney is taking the franchise, and of course the whole canon book wipe. Galaxy’s Edge first book, Legionnaire, was a nod to The Afghanistan War as told through our version of Stormtroopers. It was a hit!
Today we decided to release a FREE Short Story set in that galaxy a long long time from now… and we’re headed to our version of Vietnam. A place where desperate Legionnaires fight brutal hilltop defense battles against waves of tribal dog men. A steaming jungle filled with vicious killers waiting to shoot down medical dropships attempting to rescue the wounded. And a long night in which a War Bot will prove that Oz never gave anything that the Tin Man didn’t already have.
Please enjoy. This one’s on us.
