        I also remember that all the books had a metal in the title, and that he was writing a Vietnam novel within the other novels that would be complete when all the books were written.

        Regarding the Dain Curse. I did some kind of story on it when it came out, but I don't remember what. I do remember there was an action scene in a tower or such, and the camera followed the character throughout. It was one of the first times that a Stedi-Cam was ever used.
