Other characters in the novel "Blood Chit" have to cope with their own combat trauma. Their stories don't directly affect the arc of Chuck Paxton's travails. But in a very real and vivid way these characters refused to let me walk away from them and their own struggles toward some kind of balance. The results are the four short stories and novella linked below.
The novel, "Blood Chit" provides a bit of background on these five characters' own combat experiences, but ultimately the tales stand alone.
