    The second in the Defending the Future science fiction war anthologies has some stand out and some stand at attention, but no stand in the corner stories Every story is at least a three star A total of fourteen stories and some additional content in the Kickstarter addition the additional content is not reviewed here.The theme of the anthology, other than science fiction war, focused on So It Begins How do these conflict start, when did the first gun get fired, what philosophical difference destroys worlds Short StoriesRecidivism by Charles E Gannon Living in peace comes at a price.The Last Report on Unit 22 by John C Wright You can take the mind out of the body, but not the body out of the mind.The Nature of Mercy by James Daniel Ross also available as a stand alone Programming quality control always test before release War Movies by James Chambers Brings new meaning to Clone War Movies.The Battle for Knob Lick by Patrick Thomas One for the category of It seemed like a good idea at the time Really, really Zombies A good idea in whose definition of good or idea Also rebellion, petty revenge, and promises to children and so many other ways for a good idea to go hold my beer wrong One of the strongest stories in the anthology.Junked by Andy Remic Getting to where you need to be is most of the battle view spoiler So I m thinking the ending is a Trojan horse Don t see how taking a nano factory back to HQ could go horribly wrong not at all sarcasm font hide spoiler

    This collection would kick ass and take names, but if it brought a pencil it would end up stuck in your eye Seriously good collection As with any collection there were those I really liked and those I thought weren t as stong but overall I really enjoyed it The Nature of Mercy by James Daniel Ross stands out as my favorite from the collection, but if you like military sci fi you should get this book.

    An excellent collection of themed short stories, particularly Jack Campbell s Grendel , which adds depth to his Lost Fleet series.
