Eighteen months after the city of Al-Falluja was torn apart by vicious fighting, a reserve infantry battalion took over the deadly AO. Among the Marines was a young, empathetic artist that was eager to prove his worth as a warrior. The horrors and heroism he encountered unraveled the veil of disillusion brought on by years of social conditioning. These are his recollections, through the eyes of phantoms.

Phantoms is Fortier's third collection of poetry and his first published with Dead Reckoning Collective.


"Fortier’s poetry – can I even call it that? -  seems to do the impossible: transfer the experience of combat directly into our psyches. Phantoms is stunning. If you have never been in combat, you will understand something new and important. And if you have – well, you don’t need to hear it from me. Just take a deep breath and open up the book."

-Sebastian Junger


When he's not writing, Benjamin Fortier enjoys spending time in the New England wilderness, creating music, watching hockey, tinkering with computers, volunteering with veteran organizations, and playing video games. He hopes to continue publishing, releasing music, and using his technology skills for the good of mankind - or until SkyNet becomes self-aware.
