Message: I am flattered by your description of SA's Border War! I bust my gut writing the whole thing in nine months, but it has stood the test of time and now, to my surprise, has become a collector's item. The good news is that it will soon be published in a new edition by Helion Publishers and will be available in SA. Any buyer living in or visiting Cape Town is welcome to give me a shout if they want me to autograph it.
