Default Not ogre but darn close

This short story feels very close to lots of what’s been written as Ogre stories

I just got through it myself. Indeed!

Thank you for sharing. I think I'll draw attention to your contribution on Ogre News for others.

I follow lots of twitter accounts that are related to future military thought and SF stories like this have been a big part of brainstorming lately. Somewhere I have a link to more of this kind of stuff, if I find it I'll post it.

No kidding!

I'd read an entire novel set in that universe!
