Glad you like the look of it, Patrick.
Three originals, from Catherine Asaro, Simon R Green, and Mike Resnick with Brad Torgerson. The Asaro piece is a longish one, at over 12,000 words, and is a new episode in her Skolian saga, featuring Sauscony (Soz) Valdoria.
Ian and I scoured all sorts of anthologies as well as our own book collections to identify what we deemed the very best war-related stories, whether old or new; so the reprints cover both classic and contemporary SF. The oldest is Fredric Brown's "Arena" (1944) and the most recent, Tony Ballantyne's "The War Artist" (2011).
