Book Recommendation: Yankee Echo Tango India
Yankee Echo Tango India is a military horror/thriller in the vein of Dog Soldiers, set in a remote province of Afghanistan during the Late Unpleasantness in that country. The Queue is a comic horror satire which has its basis in my years in the federal government. Of course, as the author, I am unabashedly biased, but I believe them to be solid works of fiction that rate a greater audience.
