Bruce Holland Rogers’ short story “Tiny Bells” [April 2004] had a profound impact on me. When I first read it, I had to put the magazine down to let it settle in. Then I read it again. I read it aloud, to myself and to my partner. I shared it with some of my friends via e-mail. Last week I told the story in my own words to my Toastmasters Club, and the audience was equally enthralled by it. Even after reading the story dozens of times, I still get a chill as I reach the end. The images are vivid, and the emotions are universal. It is a superb story, especially in this time of American empire.
