The author and publisher James Musgrave is looking for fellow veterans to contribute to a new fiction anthology he’ll be publishing next year called Two Birds with One Diamond. The theme of the book is “Surviving Post-Traumatic Stress in Peacetime.”
The stories, Musgrave says, must be “realistic and human. The emphasis will be to show dialogue and the juxtaposed reality of how psychological ‘flashbacks’ can enter the present and must be coped with to survive on a daily basis. In addition, this is not a ‘war action’ anthology. It deals with how these experiences can affect the daily coping mechanisms involved in living in a so-called ‘peacetime economy.’ Original fiction only. No reprints.”
