Shadow of a Soldier

(2016)
A collection of stories by

 
 
While serving as a husky young MP in Europe, noted sci-fi author Bill Burkett kept a diary of his misadventures, encounters, romances, and sightseeing. Later, he turned these scribblings into what he calls Brautigans, so named after a writer named Richard Brautigan whose short story style he admired. Many of these stories never made it into collections of Burkett's work, so he refers to them as "orphans," unclaimed writing that have been pulled together under the general theme of soldiering. But in addition to stories of Burkett's military days you will also be treated to adventures in the Bahamas and the American northwest. "A real treat," says anthologist Hollis George, who worked with Burkett in their early newspapering days.
