I’ll be selling and autographing my books at a flea market less than a mile from my house in early October. The Hickory Ridge Flea Market, open from nine to twelve on the morning of Saturday, October 8th, will give me the opportunity to offer my five (and maybe six, if the hardcopy version of my novel-in-short-stories, Friendly Casualties, is in print by then) books to the public.
My books, all fiction, are:
—Last of the Annamese, my best-known work, tells the story of the fall of Saigon as I lived it, escaping under fire after the North Vietnamese were already in the streets of the city.
—The Trion Syndrome, the story of a Vietnam vet suffering (as I do) from Post-Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI) and how he copes.
—No Accounts, drawn from my years of caring for dying AIDS patients, tells the story of a straight man caring for a gay man dying of AIDS.
—Secretocracy, the tale, based on what actually happened to me, of the president of the U.S. lowing the boom on an intelligence budgeteer who refuses to fund an illegal operation.
—Coming to Terms, a collection of short stories about, as the Foreword says, “men and women confronted with pain as a consequence of love and hate, goodness and evil.”
—Friendly Casualties, whose first half is a collection of short stories with a second half a novella that tells the outcome of those tales.
Hope you can make it.
