Tom Kratman has a new novella out. He sent me a copy this weekend but I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but it is Tom Kratman! Writing about a giant sentient super tank! How could you not want this?
Big Boys Don’t Cry is a novella from military science fiction author Tom
Kratman, known for A Desert Called Peace and his Carrera series. The novella follows the life cycle of a Ratha, a sentient future supertank that dutifully fights Man’s battles on dozens of alien worlds. But will the massive creature still be grateful to its creators when it discovers it has a conscience? And how long will an intelligent war machine with enough firepower to flatten a city be content to remain Man’s obedient slave?
