Not all scars a soldier brings home from war can be seen. A short story about the trauma and damage of war.

Editorial Reviews

J Alan Montrose’s “The Pick-Up Game” is an engaging, impeccably-paced story. His writing is strong yet vulnerable, and here he finds levity in the darkness, compassion in the most dour of times—this is truly
something wonderful.

- Robert James Russell, author of Don’t Ask Me to Spell It Out and Mesilla

I first saw this story as part of a larger manuscript that was one of the most promising
I've seen. This story gives you a flavour of it. Montrose is a writer of talent and his work is the real deal. Long after you've read it, you'll still
be wondering about the game between Fallon and Lieutenant Colonel Bugs. But my original question remains:
when is the book coming out?

- Victoria Gosling, The Reader Berlin
