VFW: The Cover Revealed!

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to commission a few new pieces of artwork for forthcoming Martinus Publishing anthologies.  One of those pieces is for the VFW: Veterans of the Future Wars anthology, which is a collection of military sci-fi stories.  So, let's get right to it.  Here is the artwork for the VFW anthology, illustrated by Mark Vatsel (check out his portfolio here):

The submission period for VFW: Veterans of the Future Wars is still in full swing.  Spread the word, and send in your own military sci-fi story for consideration!


  1. Gorgeous picture. I love the obvious homage to Iwa Jima.

    1. Good eye, that's what I was going for. When I discussed the commission is Mr. Vatsel, I asked for it to be patterned after that iconic photo from Iwo Jima, with a sci-fi twist.
