About S. A. Barton

S.A. Barton lives in coastal Virginia with his wife, teen stepson, two under-5s, and demanding cat (as they all are). His path to the present was a strange, sometimes harrowing, and winding one; you may find this reflected in his writing. He has previously appeared in the pages of Penumbra magazine, in Daily Science Fiction, and in OMNI Reboot.

He's a winner of the first Amazing Stories Gernsback Writing Contest.

He is also proud to be a self-published indie author with dozens of short ebooks and collections to his credit, which may be found through sabarton.com. He also tweets far too much as @Tao23.

While most of S.A. Barton's work is in science fiction, some of it strays into other genres such as fantasy, mainstream, alternate history and others -- like the cat, it wanders some.

Great short story. Original, deep and well written. It make us think about the war and how it damages everything around. Definitely worth the read.

Review by: Mike Mercer on Feb. 5, 2014 : (no rating)
A frightening look from the perspective of a drone pilot. How easy it is to kill but even from a great distance the scarring from war still lives on inside the individual who delivers the blow and then wrestles with their conscience.
Guilty or nor guilty.
Worth a read to, thought provoking.
