Before, During and After My Falklands War
by Terence Victor Barnes
A grandfather who drunk alcohol from a bicycle inner tube, my father having episodes on par with Inspector Clouseau, as a teenager running riot around the streets of Ipswich, having teachers bordering on the psychotic that gave out physical punishment at will (including a nun) and football thugs as mentors, all prepared me well for a life in the military. I joined the Royal Marines at the age of sixteen, earning my coveted Green Beret as a naive virgin (in many ways), all before I was legally allowed to vote and drink beer!

Merl and Artie: A Modern Day Tale of Excalibur
by Robert Gaspari
Much of what people today believe about the legend of King Arthur comes from romanticized accounts written in the middle ages. Even more comes from fictionalized movie epics and small screen edited programming. Tales of the great warrior king became lost or confused as oral traditions passed down his exploits over time and written accounts were almost non-existent. Even his title of the once and future king became a misunderstanding about his return to power.
