Main Fiction: “Hell’s Half Acre” by Jack Campbell
Originally published in Armored, edited by John Joseph Adams.
Jack Campbell (John G. Hemry) writes the New York Times best-selling Lost Fleet series, the Lost Stars series, and the “steampunk meets high fantasy” Pillars of Reality series. His most recent books are Vanguard (which comes out in May), the first book in The Genesis Fleet, and Daughter of Dragons, a follow on to Pillars of Reality. And starting in June, Titan will begin bringing out Lost Fleet comics. John’s works have been published in twelve languages.
John is a retired US Navy officer, who served in a wide variety of jobs including surface warfare (the ship drivers of the Navy), amphibious warfare, anti-terrorism, and intelligence. Being a sailor, he has been known to tell stories about Events Which Really Happened (but cannot be verified by any independent sources). This experience has served him well in writing fiction. He lives in Maryland with his indomitable wife “S” and three great kids (the oldest two autistic).
