"Skin followed Georgie and Matt out of the pickup, his entire body shivering despite the three layers of clothing he wore. Outside the truck, the early-morning November air was crisp, with just a hint of wind that seeped through his camouflage jacket. Skin felt Matt watching him in the semi-darkness, making his shoulder blades itch until Georgie slapped him on the back and handed him a rifle.

"Mud and Salt" was first published in Writers of the Future 16 in September 2000, and it was reprinted in The Wannoshay Cycle (also an ebook)
