More About the Author
I learned fly fishing in salt water and caught many species including a 150 lb. tarpon on a fly. I've been a fly fishing guide in Rocky Mountain National Park, and continue to ply these waters with a long stick flinging pieces of fur and feather.
I'm married and live in Northern Colorado.
There is a host of information at my website: www.miltmays.com.
If you like thrillers, grab any of my novels, some with a sci-fi bend and one about fly fishing.
Want a literary short story about an Iraq War Veteran or an unsung WWII hero? Read "Thanksgiving with Riley" and "The Dry-Land Farmer."
Need a laugh over a beer or dinner with a fishing friend? Please consider a great coffee table book about what not to do on a bad day fly fishing: "Take the F...ing Fly," a poem, illustrated beautifully by Mike Friehauf. Click on "Look Inside" for a sample.

The problems I found were the kinds of things that tend to throw me out of a story. Some of these were editing and proofing issues, with this book just exceeding my somewhat intolerant threshold for such issues. Others were lines that had me saying, "Huh, how does that work?" For example, "odors of dead crawfish, beer, and swamp mud floated in." Really? You're driving through a Louisiana bayou, crack the window of the vehicle, and the smell of beer from the outside is that strong? Or talking about the miles per gallon a prototype of an electric car got? When did we start measuring electricity in gallons? I'll leave it to you to figure out what it might mean to say that a boat "maintained a steady, though rumpled ten knots." I think I know what it was trying to say, but it seemed like a strange way to say it. Despite this, thriller fans who don't mind occasionally tripping over a word should find Dan's War a worthwhile read.
**Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **
There were a few places where I re-read a sentence or two to make sure I grasped a concept or setting, those times being an odd word choice or descriptive scene which I wasn't convinced as believable. But those times were few and far between.
An intriguing tale and entertaining read. Once I started reading there was no turning back.
