Publication: “Among the Blind” in Lost Signals

I got to play in Charles E. Gannon’s sandbox. Chuck writes the Caine Riordan/Terran Republic series for Baen that is part space opera, part military SF with a very healthy dose of interstellar diplomacy thrown in, and it’s great stuff!

Chuck invited a number of authors to contribute to the anthology of short stories set in his Terran Republic universe, Lost Signals of the Terran Republic. My story, “Among the Blind” is about the plight of the defeated army of clones in Indonesia, where they were used by a coalition of bad guys that included an alien species and a bunch of corporate interests. While the main thrust of the story has moved on after their forces were defeated, it left me wondering: what happened to the poor clones, bred by the corps, who were now stuck in internment camps as prisoners of war? There was a meaty story there, even though it didn’t involve aliens and starships (my suspicion was that many other contributors would play with those shiny toys.) I’m quite pleased with how the story turned out.
