Prices-Cover-Front Princes-Cover-Back

“A subtle and utterly convincing portrait of manhood and friendship. Skaskiw knows the lures of war to be as innocent and concrete as they are dark and amorphous. In exploring a terrain of the intimate and familiar, he deftly reveals it to hold the same capacities for violence and betrayal found behind enemy lines.” – Katie Chase, author of Man and Wife

A Novelette about three Iraq War veterans on a camping trip, and those feelings of betrayal and relief when you leave the military.

“An honest look at the everydy realities of war – a must read.”
– Nolan Peterson, conflict reporter, The Daily Signal

“Skaskiw’s story about a man coming home from Iraq mirrors Hemingway and Tolstoy’s stories about men dying. Convoy Home is almost intolerably sad, beautiful, honest, and true.”
– Adrian Bonenberger, author of Afghan Post
