Storming Hell

The wonderful Ian Watson has republished my story Storming Hell in The Mammoth Book of SF Wars.

Storming Hell is about spaceship combat but it has an unusual setting. I took the Edwardian scientific world picture, plus their SF, and assumed it was literally true. Then I concocted a universe bound by those rules. I suppose you could call it a variant of Steampunk.

Storming Hell was first published in the USA by Baen in Universe Magazine, where it made the front cover. This is the first British publication of the story. Indeed, it is my first British publication of a story.

You can find it here.
