It features a high ranking officer who has battled across the centuries in some sort of galactic war and now, worn out and jaded, wants to retire or return back in time to his home village. Against all advice he returns to his village and unwittingly drags a bit of the war with him. He notices his peaceful village is being harassed by bullies, who turn out to be werewolves and other supernaturals whom he had been battling all along in the future war. In a fierce street fight he disposes of them, realizes his duty and returns to his troops on the frontline of the future war.
Any ideas who wrote this or what it's called? It seems like it was part of a series or a balloon for a series. It was neatly written in the style of the eighties or nineties. Thx!
