I just finished Erv's book "Beyond the Blood Chit". A really good writer has turned into a really good author. Real world struggles with PTSD and the Vietnam experience set in the near future, this novel blends 'right now, today' with what could be. Fascinating details, characters you can relate to, and vivid description of scenery.  Tom Wacker, Yuma, AZ
