Free Fire Zone

Retired bank president, U.S. Army veteran, and award-winning poet Dennis Maulsby ’64 has published Free Fire Zone (Prolific Press, 2016), a collection of 16 linked short stories. Last year, Near Death/Near Life, his collection of war poetry, received a gold medal in the 2016 Military Writers Society of America and was a finalist for the 2016 Best Books Award. He also won first place in the annual Iowa Poetry Association contest for his original haiku, “Crows wing-roll through smoke.” Next up, Maulsby’s short story “The Dive Bar” will appear in Main Street Rag’s Fall 2017 anthology.
