Welcome to my series on military in fiction! As a member of the military and a writer, I aim to help you create realistic military environments (regardless of time period or world) in your fiction by giving you some insight into the world I’ve lived in for most of my adult life. When I was asked to speak at WORLDCON about this very topic, I wanted to create a series of articles as a repository of the information. If you want to know more, check out the introduction below.
Below you’ll find each article as well as a link to a podcast that you are free to download and listen to at your leisure. Enjoy!
