Free Short Story – Gollancz Blog

To coincide with the release of War in Heaven this month’s Gollancz Blog is a short story set in the Veteran universe.

Combat Jack tells the heart warming tale of how Jakob, Veteran’s down at heel protagonist and narrator, met Mudge, the hard drinking, substance and verbal abusing combat journalist.  The events in this story take place several years before the events in Veteran and is set during the War with Them.

It may be best that you don’t get caught reading it at work.

Combat Jack is the second of two short stories set in the Veteran universe available free to coincide with the launch of War In Heaven.  The first is Cowards, set between the events of Veteran and War In Heaven and is available in the Veteran Universe short stories section of this very website.
