Return of The Bombing Officer

My first novel, The Bombing Officer, was published by E.P. Dutton in 1982. It was the story of a young American diplomat in Laos assigned to oversee the largest bombing campaign in history. The book had good reviews, but not so good sales. No one wanted to be reminded of our humiliating failure in Southeast Asia yet, or at least thatís my story.

I still think itís my best novel, though, and Iíd hate to see it disappear down the memory hole. And luckily I wrote it with a 29-pound Kaypro portable so that I had digital files on 5 ľ-inch floppies.

Now Iíve re-formatted The Bombing Officer as an eBook and put it up on Amazon. For further information and reviews, go here and then buy it. It goes for a buck ninety-nine, which works out to less than .002 cents a word.

Read this long ago ... evocative of the time and place, and dead-on perspective on America's role in the world both then and now.

I recommend it as well. Gives you a lot more perspective on the Vietnam war/Laos than the traditional reporting.
