I was in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan when I found your book on the shelf in the library. I was going through a breakdown of sorts, and my mind needed an escape. The cover caught my eye, and upon testing out the first page, I was hooked. When things got bad, I'd escape into the Stone, captivated by the imagery of a world I wished every day was real. I'm out now, but still read it over and over, and just recently - to my happy surprise - I learned it is part of a trilogy, and plan on jumping back into that world as soon as I find the other two. Thank you for creating this, it is bar none my favorite book to date, and I have it to thank for saving my sanity in my darkest hour.

Very good to hear from you, Tony! And thanks. I'm deeply gratified to know my book provided at least some relief. I can't even begin to imagine the pressures and the stresses our troops and auxiliary personnel experience over there. Keep in touch and let us know how it's going.
