War has long provided a backdrop to speculative fiction. Mars wars with Earth. Interstellar wars rage across the vast gulfs of space. Orcs march against the combined forces of dwarf and elf and man. And werewolves and sparkly vampires take on one another.
So my questions today: Do you write any stories that are set against a backdrop of war? War against an alien race, war between human empires… what are some of your favorite examples, either that you have writter or read? And have you written war sci fi with LGBTIQA war heroes?
