war slut

My novella War Slut has been re-released and is now available. This edition includes a new introduction and new cover art.


In a future where everyone in the world has been drafted into the military, there is only one enemy left to fight . . . ourselves.

Five exhausted soldiers are sitting in the middle of a frozen Arctic wasteland, waiting for something to happen. They don’t know why they are there or what they are supposed to be doing. Their superior officers have stopped giving them orders, their food supply is running low, and they are unsure whether or not their enemy actually exists at all. Once they lose their war slut (a transmorphing sex cyborg), the soldiers leave the safety of their camp in order to get it back. Only what they find out in the dark icy landscape is something far beyond what they ever could have imagined.

Part 1984, part Waiting for Godot, and part action horror video game adaptation of John Carpenter’s The Thing, WAR SLUT is a fast-paced dystopian tale of the dark and the absurd.
