Germline: The Subterrene War, Book 1 is just out at and elsewhere. It’s the debut novel from South Carolina author T. C. McCarthy and Bull Spec reviewer C.D. Covington calls it “equal parts The Forever War and Hammer’s Slammers”. McCarthy, a former CIA analyst, weaves a tale of genetically engineered soldiers at war in a future Russia-US conflict in Kazakhstan. An embedded journalist begins to lose himself in the war and the drugs the soldiers use to keep super-ready. Publisher’s Weekly calls it “Compelling…. Recalling the work of Remarque, Willi Heinrich, and especially Michael Herr, McCarthy’s delirious narrative avoids cliché and raises intriguing questions about what it means to be human.”
