In defense of Ing

Mike Gannis writes:

I must forcefully disagree with your reader Mark Goble for criticizing the inclusion of Dean Ing on your Dream Team list. Ing has actually written a pretty good novel about how to deal with terrorists in the U.S. — “Soft Targets,” which also appeared as a novella in Jim Baen’s bookazine “New Destinies” in 1980 or thereabouts. IIRC, he was quite prescient and had a couple of good solutions to the problem of domestic terrorism. It’s been reissued, and seems to be still in print as a paperback — see link] for more info.

As I’ve indicated, I’m agnostic on Ing, having not read the fellow, but always glad to hear differing opinions…
