This Peaceful State Of War Audio version. A quick listen of about an hour.
In this story, you’re transported to a world where the biology is vastly different from Earth, but looks deceptively similar.
Miranda Tonkin arrives at the backwater world Bianca with a heartbreaking mission:
Determine if there is a reason to maintain funding for the peacekeeping mission by the Brothers of the Light on this backwater world.
Problem is: the Brothers are making zero progress in keeping the two warring native peoples apart, and both groups are laying the planet to waste while intent on destroying each other.
Second problem: the natives look like somewhat like people, but they’re not. And recently, their ability to communicate with their human “saviours” has all but vanished.
Maybe humanity should cut their losses. Nature has dramatically different ideas.
This story was the first place winner of the Writers of the Future contest in 2010. Over the years, many big names in Science Fiction and Fantasy have come out of this competition, with names as Brandon Sanderson, Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch. This Peaceful State Of War is exactly the version as was published in their 27th anthology.
