Tide of Battle

Michael Z. Williamson returns with his second collection of short fiction, essays, and provocations. Sure to thrill, entertain, and scandalize.



Enter the mind of multiple best-selling author Michael Z. Williamson with this new collection of stories, essays, and provocations, sure to entertain, thrill—and scandalize.

Inside you find stories set in Williamson’s popular Freehold science fiction series, John Ringo’s Black Tide Rising series, Williamson’s own A Long Time Until Now universe, and much more.

And when Williamson turns his eye to pop culture, no sacred cows are safe as he skewers modern movies, classic poetry, beloved firearms, and the way we live today. Rounding out the volume is a fresh batch of his Inappropriate Cocktail recipes—frequently both delicious and outrageously snarky, commemorating celebrities, events, and cultural memes.
