Topic: Quantico--5 minutes after finishing it

Hi Greg,
Long-time fan--Saw you'd written a thriller (thought that label doesn't quite do it justice) and had to read it. (Interesting coincidence, I read it immediately after finishing a sci-fi novel by Elizabeth Bear...)
Suffice to say Quantico was a dynamite read. And I intend to copy Rebecca's "sunshine patriot" speech on p. 286 and keep it somewhere--I've never seen it said better.

Thanks, and best wishes
Eric Henry

Most pleased you enjoyed the book, Eric. Paperback will be coming out in a few months--spread the word!

Hi Greg, I enjoyed Quantico very much but do you dismiss as coincidence the fact that anthrax was mailed to two Dem. senators?
The senators, Daschle and Leahy were in a position to hold up the Patriot Act when they received the letters.

The Patriot Act is the Bush centerpiece for countering terrorism and to many, myself included, it is key the coup enacted by right wing Republicans.

Quantico is excellent but I don't rule out a conspiracy on the part of this dreadful Bush administration. P McGinley

I'm no fan of the Bush administration, but this just doesn't fit the profile.
