About the author:
Edward M. Grant spent his childhood in the South-West of Britain and studied Physics at Oxford, but now lives in Canada. He wrote magazine articles and worked on numerous indie movies in and around London, including co-writing a vampire feature that was later shot in California. He has travelled the world, been a VIP at several space shuttle launches, survived earthquakes and a tsunami, climbed Mt Fuji and visits nuclear explosion sites as a hobby.
He grew up on pulp horror and SF novels and still has a soft spot for both. However, his background as a physicist helps him write stories toward the harder end of the SF spectrum.
Edward M Grant
Vicious, congenitally bureaucratic, and proud of their resplendent flame-red uniforms which give them a five minute life expectancy in combat, the Flaming Space Weasels wiped out most of Dirk Beretta's fellow space marines at the battle of Din Bin Foo... then served them for lunch with a nice Merlot.
In the aftermath, Dirk quits his job as poster boy for the Space Marines, to drown his sorrow in cheap booze and cheaper women. But when a gang of pirate Weasels come hunting fresh meat for the kibble factories, his brand of pig-headed determination and excessive violence may offer the chance for redemption... and revenge.
A 7,000 word science fiction short story.
