In the Shade of the Ishtar Trees

| Thursday, 5 December 2013 | |
I have just finished reading In The Shade of the Ishtar Trees by J.P. Medved.

This is a 40 page short story available via Amazon Kindle and captures everything that a VSF fan could want. The story feels just like one of those movies that capture the colonial sagas, Gunga Din, The Four Feathers, Khartoum, Lives of a Bengal Lancer etc.

The story tells the tale of a young officer on an expedition into the unknown jungles of Venus. The expedition is soon ambused and fighting for their lives and the officer and a veteran sergeant lead the remains to safety.

Making an ideal plot for a wargame, or indeed for Space 1889 or the like, it is well worth a read by any fan of VSF, whether they are gamers or not!

I was very impressed by this story and I am looking forward to picking up a few more of J.P. Medved's stories.
