Just a quick note with some interesting news: the USS Arizona has recently appeared in a short story of mine I've published in booklet form at Lulu.com. It is about a real-life dive bomber pilot present at both Pearl Harbor and Midway whose fighting spirit is deeply affected by the sight of her lying destroyed in her berth in the aftermath of the attack.

So the Arizona has finally sailed into the realm of historical fiction with my hand on the helm, because she is the historic ship closest to my heart for a very personal reason: I knew one of her survivors as a boy who is now buried aboard. The story is dedicated to him and his family.
