Sun Prairie, WI – March 10th, 2012 – What do you do when you’re disappointed by what you perceive as a distinct shortage of G.I. Joe fiction? Don Maue decided to try writing his own! In October of 2011, he started work on a short story dealing with Iron Grenadier characters. That short story quickly turned into the basis for a fan-fiction blog. Tales from Castle Destro Volume I – Mercenary War is a collection of the first twenty-two chapters published at Don’s blog.

Don Maue is an avid collector and customizer of G.I. Joe toys. He lives in Wisconsin with his wife and two children. This is his first e-book.

ISBN: 978-1-4658-4204-6
