2002.10.03 : A Whole New Bunny

    Reader response to the Bunny Episode was lively and varied. Thanks equally to those who ooh'd and ahh'd at the high cuteness involved; gently indicted me for being such a nancy about the whole thing; provided a bit of genuine empathy regarding my initial shock and horror (including a comparison to a disturbing rat experience in India); and suggested a highly amusing title change.

Mainly, I'm writing briefly to report that the Bunny Episode does have a very happy ending. I went down early this morning – and found a whole new bunny. Not only had she eaten all of her rabbit food overnight (which she hadn't seemed inclined to go near yesterday), but she seemed totally rejuvenated: fluffy fur, bright eyes, better posture, attentive aspect. Check it out. Mostly, look at those big perky ears – totally different from the sodden, laid-back, shrunken antennae of yesterday. Moreover, Alex (after e-mail consultation with a rabbit rescue and reclamation expert) fed her some more – "Sorry to tell you babe, but this is probably the last, best food you're ever going to get in your life" – then took her down to the woods by the pool, and sent her on her way. By all accounts, she was off like a shot. All's well that ends well.

Though you can bet I checked the pool out pretty carefully before I got in this morning.

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
