    Good lord, you want to to compete against your story No way, yours rules The only thing you left out of the story is how I came in possession of the 22 missing pages, but that's another tale.

    I just have to think of an era and a good event, I'll jump in with both feet and try to be 1/2 as good as your submission. Right now it's too hot and my brain is fried.

    I've often wondered if there would be any real market for a book containing several short fictitious treasure tales? I do love to write them and when I put my mine to it I'm also a pretty good fibber.

    But I have also read what you folks have written at times and I must say, I feel I could be put to shame rather easily.
