About the Author

Jason Lambright is a retired US Army combat veteran whose lifelong love of science fiction and his personal military experience come together in his novel In the Valley. Frustrated with the way combat is glorified in works of military science fiction, he wanted to create a futuristic story that portrays combat and the life of a combat soldier in a realistic way. In the Valley shows that, despite the most advanced technology imaginable, nothing changes when it comes to the human element. Or as he puts it, the more things change, the more they stay the same. His book is dedicated to the men and women who put their lives at stake so that others can live in peace and security. Lambright lives in the Ohio Valley with his wife and children, where he appreciates every day, and enjoys watching the sun go down from his front porch.

Format: Paperback
This is a chance to see something real woven into science fiction; the author shows how universal war is and how those who fight the wars react in different ways to the job they have before them. The story has all the gritty realism of books like Mekong Mud Dogs and Missions of Fire and Mercy because like those authors, the author of In the Valley was there, and felt the need to tell people what it was like to be there. The difference is that this book allows a bit of breathing room for the reader by shifting the environment to a science fiction setting. It was reminiscent of the original Star Trek series to me in that it shows what the future might hold and how similar it would most likely be despite changes in technology.

The story is divided into the present conflict that the protagonist is embroiled in and the past which led him from a rural home to training for a military mission. You see the path one life took and the choices one man made which led to the present told in a clear, level headed manner. Most engaging in this story is the undeniable ring of truth that is clear throughout it; the way the men find humor in the most dire situations and the way the life of a soldier alternates between boredom and incredibly dangerous moments where lives can be snuffed out with almost no warning at all.

This is neither a quick nor an easy read, but for anyone who enjoys either classic science fiction (Asimov, Bradbury, Heinlein) or realistic war tales, this is definitely worth your time!
