FIGHT CARD: hardboiled boxing stories, for a good cause

The folks who produce the popular FIGHT CARD series- featuring short stories about the sweet science of pugilism, set in the 1930s and 1940s- have released the first in a new series which will all be for charity. Some will be for medical needs of writers, others for literacy campaigns. The first, IRON HEAD AND OTHER STORIES, is to benefit acclaimed author Jory Sherman, who is facing some severe health crises. Jory has a story -the lead one, in fact, "Iron Head"- as do several other authors. Including yours truly. My story is called "Go for Broke," and is about the prejudice a Japanese-American combat veteran-turned-boxer faces when he comes home from World War II.
