Excerpt from The Morning's War: A Romance

T may have looked less like a sowing of seed than I a casting of some weed into the fire when Frank Browne, a sadly wild fellow, drained his last can in the London of 1610, fell asleep full of beautiful thoughts on a bench close to Ludgate and found, when next things came clear, that he was ascending a hill, wet with a fog that beaded his hair, in a light that could only be dawn, and he with a musket in hand, wonder ing what could have sent him soldiering. Had he been nabbed while he slept? Or was he there of his own motion, a Maccabee saving his country, urged by some vision that had visited his bench? It must have been this second way; he preferred it; and there were such calls; Joan of Arc might have had one, for all that they said; a lowly vessel, no doubt, but the hundred or so that marched with him now looked lowly too; if such stones were to head any corners at all it must be Heaven's, so clearly had this world's builders rejected them all. The nude has its glories, and clothes that cohere have theirs: here you saw neither, but a chill turpitude: mangy cats looked so; for the very eas, in their shrinking coverts, the future must have a dis quieting air. It was surely a call that had come.
