War is becoming increasingly 'SF-ized' with remotely controlled attack drones and robot warriors already in development and being tested. Over the past 100 years the technology of war has advanced enormously in destructive power, yet also in sophistication so that we no longer seem to live under the constant threat of all-out global thermonuclear cataclysm. So what will future wars be like? And what will start them: religion, politics, resources, refugees, or advanced weaponry itself? Watson and Whates present a gripping anthology of SF stories which explores the gamut of possible future conflicts, including such themes as nuclear war, psychological and cyberwars, enhanced soldiery, mercenaries, terrorism, intelligent robotic war machines, and war with aliens.All the stories in this collection of remarkable quality and diversity reveals humankind pressed to the limits in every conceivable way.It includes 24 stories with highlights such as:The Pyre of the New Day' - Catherine Asaro.The Rhine's World Incident' - Neal Asher. Caught in the Crossfire' - David Drake. Politics' - Elizabeth Moon.The Traitor' - David Weber.And others from:Dan Abnett, Tony Ballantyne, Fredric Brown, Algis Budrys, Simon R.

About the Author:

Ian Watson invented Warhammer 40K fiction for the Black Library of Games Workshop 20 years ago with his novel Inquisitor, not to mention his notorious Space Marine. His highly successful Inquisition War trilogy omnibus edition was recently reprinted, and Space Marine itself, often hailed as the best ever 40K novel, has just been released by the BL of GW as print-on-demand through their website due to overwhelming reader demand. He lives in Northamptonshire, England. Ian Whates recently published through his own NewCon Press the original anthology Conflicts which has been so successful that Conflicts 2 is planned. He has been approached to edit a new series of anthologies for Solaris, picking up from their successful Solaris Book of New Science Fiction books. He lives in Cambridgeshire, England. Together they edited The Mammoth Book of Alternate Histories.
