Thanks for the heads up on the new book, Bill. Looks like a "gotta have"

 As I see it, "1261Truckie" has got that right.

 Just as Mike says, Steven published another book called: "Fire".

 This latest will be added to my collection, including "Fire", along with Mike's Book: "New Yorks Bravest - their lives on the line".

 At least for me, "a PRICELESS COLLECTION" that can NOT be replaced".
