I was very good ...


I actually managed to part with some books, bravely putting them in the charity bag and waving them off the other day. But I've bought two more historical novels. Oh dear.

The first is Bernard Cornwell's The Pale Horseman, book 2 in his King Alfred era trilogy, now in paperback. I managed to get a signed edition from Waterstones, so may well keep this one

And the second is Simon Scarrow's The Eagle's Prophecy, 1st century Romans. This is one which, in the first edition, used some of Lindsey Davis' Falco characters and portrayed them unfavourably. Not surprisingly, Davis objected (scroll down to Copyright Issues) and insisted that the references be removed.

Still off-colour, as the cake works its way round my system. Trouble is, if you realise you've made a mistake, you can't take the action back, and you just have to wait till it calms down.
