Digital painting by Dallas Nagata White

Cover Comment:

In 2013, my daughter, Dallas Nagata White, created a large digital painting to help promote the Mythic Island Press LLC edition of The Red. By 2016 that image was no longer being used for its original purpose, but I realized that a section of the painting would make a terrific cover for a collection that contained several military stories.
