    Eric has the uncanny ability of placing his readers in any number of memorable settings (Places we are in no rush to leave.)– a town full of secrets, a boat from the World War ll era, a bike fueled by childhood wonder, or an unsettling panic on audition day. Congrats, Eric. Thank you for inspiring not only the reader, but your fellow VSF writers as well.
