Gayle again: Thanks for sharing, Rob. That was great stuff. You can find Rob's books on Amazon. His author page is http://www.amazon.com/Robert-Stermscheg/e/B004C2RIWA/, which will lead you to both this stunning memoir and his translations of two of Karl May's books. You can also visit his website, http://www.robertstermscheg.com/. I'll be visiting his site this week, talking about the differences of writing historical fiction and writing in the contemporary age.
