  • Ace Of Spades: Why Language Matters
    In this article, Ace of Spades demonstrates how the writing style of "journalists" and other writers is purposely used to influence the electorate. He explains this far better than I have been able to do, but this is the foundation of why I could no longer be silent.

Great interview! Interesting that you like Conrad, Phil. I completely agree about the melodramatic weight on war writing. It's hard to avoid. And that's where I think having disinterested, civilian voices can help tame the narrative, so to speak.

Keep writing, Phil. We need more writers who've served. I'm very much looking forward to your collections (both of them). And I'm interested in your take on Anbar, as well. I was in the Sunni area too and that environment of the war factors heavily in my stories.
