Dogs of War II: The Aftermath


Dogs of War II: The Aftermath


How does war change when the people who do the fighting are no longer just human? When dogs, enhanced by artificial intelligence, can help their human masters track their foes, or when a horse wants to prove that he can be a sailor too? Does the dreadful calculus of warfare change when some of the people involved have fur?What happens on the battlefield is only the start—and soldiers are not the only ones who face the consequences. In the aftermath of any conflict, people must rebuild what was lost, consolidate what was gained, and decide if it was worth the price.


Dogs of War II Aftermath is an anthology exploring what warfare looks like when the combatants are no longer fully human. It contains twenty stories about how war changes when those who do the fighting have changed, and how much it stays just the same.
