1. Anna's tale would center around her career as a photographer for the state controlled newspaper-as Stalin and his suporters start to change the course of the Communist Party Anna would use her photography to let the people of Russia see the mass murder that occurs-she will probably continue to have multiple relationships with men and her relationship with her son would become estranged.

2. Samarin escapes and joins with other terrorists-would Samarin support the Lenin regime? or would he continue to work against the Reds and join the camp of Stalin-would he possibly recruited to join the Nazi party in Russia? I think he is so shrewd and such a skillful lier he survives and escapes Yazyk.

3. Mutz travels with the Legion and makes it home and he either settles in Prague or Vienna-Meek would weave a tale of a Jewish war hero in the days when Hitler's Nazi party is gaining popularity-would he be sent to the camps? or would he escape to America?-Meek's book mentioned that he had family in the U.S.

4. Alyosha had a small part but at the end of the book we see the world through his eyes-Meek might pick up his story with Alyosha-he could take it several different places incorporating the events in Russia during the Lenin and Stalin's regimes up to WWll and the cold war of the 1960's.

I think Alyosha and Samarin would have the most interesting stories to tell in a sequel. How did everything that happened affect Alyosha as he grows into manhood? Would love to see him meet up with Samarin again in some way.

I like Anne's idea of what Samarin would be up to? Would he become a "changed" man? Would he continue with his revolutionary ideals and possibly switch allegiances? Would he be a revolutionary with a "heart?" Would another woman cause him to reevaluate his ideals? -Donna

I wish he would write another book about the Legion's journey home and the Russian gold camps he mentioned in the interview responses-he could easily put all the characters in the story. Question:when an author has such a succesful book is there a morbid fear of writing a sequel? Is the story such a part of them-that they have to let it go and move on? I never have talked with an author who had anything published-so just curious.
