************* I haven't read it, but I've been feeling the need to read something else by him. Last Civil War novel I read was Frazier's COLD MOUNTAIN, an excellent, and very hardboiled, book. He really cuts loose from the cliches, I think. There aren't any battle scenes, the romance is portrayed as bumbling and awkward for both people, and the violence comes hard, fast, and mean. The ending is superb. I've been waiting for him to come out with something new.

You've got a bunch of Civil War books out, haven't you, James? If I recall, most of it is nonfiction.
