FIRE IN THE RAIN, a collection of eleven short stories, interweaves fascinating Vietnamese folk tales with historical events of Vietnam. In 2013, a chance encounter in Little Saigon between Lt. Toan, a former officer of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam, and fellow Vietnam veteran Cpl. Brad Miller sparks a sojourn into the past. Beginning with two legendary sisters in the year 42 A.D., the stories continue through key points of Vietnamese struggles against the Han Chinese, Mongols, Ming, French and communism, culminating in visions of a futuristic democracy in Vietnam.

About the Author:

Tuan Cao-Dac arrived in the United States in 1975 as a refugee fleeing communism. He received a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and a law degree. He has taught computer engineering and computer science at a state university. He is now an attorney practicing intellectual property law. He lives with his family in Orange County, Southern California.

Review:

The tales' greatest strength is their vibrant portrayal of history, geography, and traditional dress and military garb. . . The writer does a commendable job of weaving in historical facts . . . Well-researched, intelligently organized stories. -- Kirkus Reviews

Cao-Dac demonstrates in these stories an unusual facility for creating dialogue that brings his many characters to life on the pages. . . . [he] uses fiction as a tool to find truth in the historical events, sometimes tragic, sometimes triumphant but always provocative and memorable. -- Larry Engelmann, author of of Intemperance, The Goddess and the American Girl, Tears Before the Rain, Daughter of China, They Said That, and Feather in the Storm
