short stories about war, wine, and mystery. Krawiec’s stories describe the search for a devil bomber who’s ambushing
American planes; a mission to carry out the dying wishes of a man whose forgotten urn supports file folders in a West Berlin
Air Force office; a town with no “dead end” streets or bus “terminals” (so as not to offend the seniors
living there); and a country road that remembers the people who walk it.”
