ARMISTICE collects tales of a time millions of years ago on far off worlds, a time when the inlaris’ home planet still existed; Woelf Dietrich, M.J. Kelley, Dana Leipold and Elaine Chao give us stories about intergalactic space travel and tragedy wrought by a global war that tore Earth asunder; narratives of hope and love, and yes, we take you to the wastelands of North America, where… Well, you’ll just have to read it to find out. But mostly these stories involve Earth: exploring first contact, the golden era of alien collaboration, the Great War, and the interspecies conflicts that still rattle the world.
Wolf Dietrich says this about the collection:
So, I hope you do enjoy this collection. I feel really good about it. I have six stories in there that I’m immensely proud of. I even flexed my voice a bit and experimented with a story called, “The Carrion Hunter.” I also explored New Zealand’s own Māori folklore in “The Koru.” In “The Berserker’s Code,” a human soldier finds common ground with one of the bundr-ah aliens, but it’s not what you might think. And in “Charlie Dingo” we learn about the man behind the name.
