Yet Another Lost Story Request

grandad_rufus

I thought it was Hell Hounds by Ernest Bywater, which has an invasion from Mexico, but I am looking for a similar story which contains the following -

Invasion from Mexico, National Guard units do much of the fighting, at one point they are warned of Friendlies from another state joining the fight.

Sadly that is the only scene I can remember :(

Ernest, I have just finished Hell Hounds again - Thank You, Regards G_R

I think one of the Banzai Ben stories has a scene like that.I remember an attack from Mexico,a bar named Bob's and a drinking bear.I could be confusing that with drinking Dos Equis,my friend Bob and a bear of a hangover.

It may be on Gina Marie's site, by her, one of the serialized stories she posts, mostly weekly. It was a PA (post apoplectic) story, I will look later today, when her Sunday serial of the week gets posted (about 6pm Pacific Time) and see if I can find it. It was at least 6 months ago, I think. Try "Beyond the Far Horizon" dot net.

The Tall Short maybe, by Gina Marie Wylie?

Was a regular army fight or not?

I ask, because my shot at a zombie apocalypse was based on the zombies coming from Mexico and the fighting was mostly done by the National Guard - but it was more focused on the HQ people and their decisions, and not the actual fighting.

I am pretty sure it was on SOL - but I may have run into it elsewhere

I seem to recall it was National Guard units, a ground attack, and possibly National Guard Warthogs from a neighboring state. Details kinda hazy though!

Semi-Off Topic: A few years ago my old computer died and I lost my password to Gina's site. My old log-on comes up with an expired password message and I've lost my old e-mail address to a hacker. I tried to re-register this afternoon but the registration page keeps coming up blank. The site had several stories I've found nowhere else and would really like to re-read. Help!

I just sent Gina a PM about it.

Make sure you use www.beyondthefarhorizon.net; the domain used to be .com, but Gina lost that registration and had to migrate to .net.

Except registration and viewing your profile (and changing it) doesn't work, and I haven't the foggiest why.

I think you meant Rock Fall, PA, invasion from Mexico, A10's taking out (at least the local) invaders, huge snowstorms, protagonists sheltering in a mine converted to shelter. Tall Short is PA but no invasion from Mexico, just local militias based on NG/military units. Neither of these stories (AFAIR) fit the NG/friendlies criterion.
