The kind of story one rarely comes across: well-researched, in character, and with sound plotting and some incredibly good lines to top that off. *loves story*

This was awesome. It will be reread many times in the future.
Author's Response: That\'s one of the best comments that an author can get. Thank you, Ithidrial!
This is just excellent, first to last. I love that it stays totally within Joe's POV and chronicles his emotional, intellectual and physical struggles. It is spot-on Joe Dawson, in all his heroic humanity. Wonderful!
Author's Response: Thank you, MacGeorge! Joe really is my kind of hero.
