READ IT HERE:"High Ground"
BY: Jaine Fenn
IN: Sci Phi: Journal of Science Fiction and Philosophy
Genre: Science Fiction
This is the first work I've read of Jaine Fenn's, but I'm a fan already.
"High Ground" is a grim and thoughtful story about a prisoner of war who is not tortured and is not starved by his captors, but not treated kindly, either. He has his own ideals which have lead him into becoming a common soldier despite his high birth rank. However, being of high rank he is a pawn in the game of war whether he survives or not. Even his gift for poetry can be used for propaganda as well as truth.
