Ellen Datlow suggested I come tell you how much I enjoyed your story, instead of just telling her. *grin* A Walk In the Garden was an awesome story, the descriptive narrative so real it made my head tingle. It was also an inspiration, something I don't find in many stories these days. I'll definitely look for more stories from you at SciFiction.

Hey Trish,
Have you read Lucius's earlier stories in our archives? If not, go on. Lucius has been quite prolific in past couple of years. I also have a novella by him in The Dark,-- the ghost story antho coming out from Tor in October.

Hey, Trish...I really appreciate your kind words.
Obviously (at least I hope it's obvious), "Walk" was a story I felt strongly about--not just the Iraqi stuff, but as to the way soldiers are--and I feel extremely rewarded that people like yourself are responding to it....

Ellen, I remember Jaguar Hunter as being my favorite book forever. And I'm just discovering some of his older works that I need to re-read. And working my way through the archives as my writing and editing schedule allows.

Lucius, my father was a career soldier and I was born in Viet Nam while he and Mom were there. I did connect so strongly with the soldier aspect that it gave me pause.

And thanks to the inspiration, I was kept awake for MANY hours writing a new story. *LOL*

Hey, Trish...

Born in Vietnam, wow...that was a helluva place to start anything, especially a life. There were probably some crazy angels looking in.

Glad the piece inspired some new work...

Wow! Trish. What Lucius said about being born in Viet Nam.
