My blog — Read it, and (maybe) become a writing hero!
I'm going to redo mine slightly.

"A retired soldier and his friends combat government conspiracies, unravel ancient mysteries about lost civilizations, and fight for their homeland on a martian colony."

It acutally sounds better that way, and more accurate. a 'former' soldier means dishonorable discharge

EDIT: I am hoping to hear from d roy soon. I was most eager to here his works put in one sentence.

I don't believe I can actually explain either In The Service or A Numbered Existence in a single sentence.

"An ADP armored trooper pilot must survive rampaging boomers, poor equipment, and his own command structure for about 500 words each chapter." more or less sums up Night Life.
Nous restons ici.
yours, condensed: " A pilot must survive an onslaught of aircraft while his equipment and command structure both fail him."

Only put in the important stuff like that, and see if you can get your other work in there. I could of said my work like this:

"a retired military officer and his friends in the military fight back an invasion, re-establish a special forces team that inspires a nation, fights three conflicting government conspiracies and start to re-discover the secrets of the precursors and thier lost herritage."

See? my last one was MUCH simpler. This one is just full of useless bulk that isn't needed to convey what it is about.

[up]Setting and nature. An armored trooper is power armor; want to make that clear. Fanfic; want to make that clear. Not military; want to make that clear. Very short stories; wanted to make that clear.

I think I did admirably in condensing another four facts in with not many words.

The other stories are respectively 87,721 words/24 chapters and 41,462 words/30 chapters. A Numbered Existence follows a group of characters, hopping between them, and such things aren't necessarily connected and their actions not necessarily related to each other. This prevents easy summaries. In The Service has less of the essential scatterbrainedness but is far longer and hence has more going on, having progessed from more or less law-enforcement actions to full-scale war, from regular humans to AI constructs and cybernetic enhancement, and so on. It's not easy to condense the important threads out. Even if I could, I probably need the back cover of a novel.

I've got new mythological machinery, and very handsome supernatural scenery.

Goodfae: a mafia web serial
hes still a pilot. bombers are still aircraft. and equipment and command is still equipment and command. if you mean its more like a mech, then just add 'mech' before 'pilot'

edit: im just saying that you could try to explain the other one. thats the best part when people explain crazy complicated plots in the fewest words possible. thats why i made the topic to begin with, that and to hear d roy try it lol <3
