My Fake War
by Andersen Prunty
Saul Dressing is a flabby middle-age librarian who just wants to be left alone to listen to jazz, watch porn, and cultivate his toenails. All of this changes when a soldier shows up to draft him into the army of the United States of Everything. His mission is simple: go to a country no one has ever heard of and incite the opposition to strike first. War! Giant robots! Satire!
