Largely retired from writing now, Jake "Buddy" Saunders was a familiar name
among Texas- based speculative fiction writers in the 1970s. Best-known for
his 1974 collaborative novel with Howard Waldrop The Texas-Israeli War: 1999,
Saunders currently operates Lone Star Comics, a chain
of eight comic book shops in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
In the haunting story that follows, Saunders shows how sometimes there are
no good options among the evil choices war presents us with.
