"I get a powerful image of an old, dying man lost in his memories of battle. He'll die of natural causes; I don't get the feeling of a suicidal person. Quite touching and very well done."

Premonition

Mark stood on a sea cliff top. A wave below roared in and sprayed out a ferocious impact. Its retreat left a glistening carpet of foamy shale. To his left, a slender figured girl appeared, dressed only in a skimpy black nightie. Her blonde…
