Did you have a look, Rice? What did you think? It's short but powerful.

I had a look but all I could find for my kindle was a whole book of his short stories for $98. Then I remembered . . . go to the library! So, in the next couple of days I shall pop out to the library and have a squizzy.

Did you find 'The Sniper' in your local library, Rice?

Good luck with your big move Rice. I'm glad it's not us moving. It would take us 12 months to box up our stuff! I think I was born LAZY!

Nope. Never heard of it.
No, this author is unknown to me.
I will have a look, not heard about this book or writer, you have me thinking?
I read this years ago while I was at school. One of my kid's brought it to my attention the other day. It's a short story about the haunting reality of war - the Civil War in Ireland to be specific. It's a great read.
by Vee
No, I haven't heard of it, but I'll ask my husband if he'd like to read it. He's interested in war stories.
