THE WARBIRDS OF ABSAROKA
by Debbie Mumford
Audience: Space Opera | General Audience | Short Story
Brenna Standing Bear has been given an impossible task by her dying grandfather: convince Absaroka’s Planetary Council to build a fleet to defend against the Bug-Eyes. The problem? The council believes the Bug-Eyes were defeated sixty-eight years ago. Why should they expend precious resources to defend against a non-existent threat?
Warbird Pilot Caleb Leaping Trout is in trouble. He reported for duty with a staggering hangover. Unfortunately the expected readiness exercises turned into something much deadlier, and he wasn’t ready. Now, he must face the consequences in this moving sequel to The Warbirds of Absaroka.
