:new: October is half over, my grinning ghosts! I hope those entries are bubbling up nicely! So far I've dispatched 88 prompts to you mad writers out there. Looking forward to seeing what you...dig up.

Ghouls and Ghasts and ne'er do wells, welcome once again to the LaBORatory for our annual celebration of stories in the season of all things spooky.

What is a MONSTER? A tentacled, eldritch thing beyond the ken of rational minds? A fiendish horror summoned from the pits for unholy accords? A misshapen simulacrum of a man stitched together and shocked into life in the depths of a madman's workshop? Or is it simply a familiar creature, the family pet perhaps, who has gone just a day too long without its bowl of kibble?
That is what we are here to learn, boys and gh

Dare to fail...

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again… if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." ~ Theodore Roosevelt

I am here slightly more regularly....  ;p
Been working [too] much, padding the bank account so maybe I can replace the lappy soonish. :nod: After snow tires, and rent.
And playing Pathfinder 2x/week... except this week. This is something I really look forward to, so missing a week is a huge bummer!  :( But maybe I'll go to the movies instead.

Given your subject matter, I think I need to give you a couple of books to add to your list (unless you already know them). The first is "Theater of War" by Brian Doerries. The second is "Continuing Actions" by Dan Sheehan. The former's main premise is that ancient Greek plays (tragedies) were meant to help people cope with their problems/traumas. The author comes up with the idea of presenting Greek tragedies to various military bases and prisons, which help the people their find some sort of catharsis.  The latter is written by a Marine pilot (a vet himself), who explains the steps needed for a warrior to 'come home'. Sheehan focuses on the mental aspects of coming home. In short, how to de-compartmentalize their emotions and understand their war experiences, and eventually, share them. (Of course, it's not battle you can do alone; he's got an entire chapter on how to prepare). I hope these books are of some use to your writing. :D

And you're welcome for the 'favorite' on "Dogs of War." I honestly thought I was reading a personal account at first. It read like some memoirs I've read by Iraq/Afghan vets, and others who severed in those areas. I'm gonna have to do a more detailed review of it later when I have time.

Thanks very much for the recommendations. I've added them to my Amazon wish list.  :nod:

I'll trade you: Victory Point: Operations Red Wings and Whalers ~ Ed Darack [Afghanistan]
and We Were One ~ Patrick O'Donnell [Iraq]

I'm glad Dogs reads like a personal account.
It is always my goal when writing military fiction to stay true to the emotions and trials faced by those who lived through the real thing.
I'd love to read your full review if you get a chance!  ;)
