I have just finished reading all of the excerpts from your zstories. You walk the reader through such huge a range of emotions, in such an intimate way  it is incredible. And your use of analogies, as always, is brilliant. I think the best way to express, in a nutshell, what I think is to tell you that as I read each excerpt, in turn, the same thought went through my mind: well, perhaps this one is my favorite.  .  .  .
