From Amazon: How much do you know about 12th-century Norman England? … This historical mystery allows us to slip under the skin of a period and its people.

Kaifeng almost immediately leapt out as a setting. Most of what we know about this administrative unit is derived from a document known as the Hundred Ordinance. He had issued so many charters that a degree of irresponsibility is probable, and he had quarrelled with Abbot, later Archbishop, Dunstan and driven him into exile. Series includes "Rebel", "Copperhead", "Battle Flag" and "The Bloody Ground". "Sword of Honour" trilogy by Evelyn Waugh. She's left me with an undying desire to visit Wales, though!!

A folio from the Book of Knowledge of Ingenious Devices. In Anna's case, the blade of the axe passed through her lower jaw which was left attached to her neck afterwards.

Erikson's writing is the icing on the cake for such a marvelous creation of fiction! Having just finished a great book called "Great Cathedrals", filled with 400 pages of jaw-dropping photographs, I kept wondering how in the world they could have built such marvelous edifices with rudimentary implements over 800 years ago. So when I did have to indulge in a few paragraphs of historical explanation, I always tried to tie it into the characters in some personal way.

I like developing a place and a supporting cast book by book, and so many of the minor characters will also feature in multiple instalments. Yet, isn’t it cowardly in itself to hang oneself or fast until your body gives up. New York, Atheneum, 1970 Set in 12th century. It is 1665 and young tearaway Will Scratch has got a job. This painfully honest novel is both funny and hopeful.

So if you have suggestions for medieval names of horse send them to me!! The limitations of this provincial servant, like Paul not an artist, do not seem to inspire a judgmental stance although irony is inevitably present. With the eye of the domestic artist, C�cile sees the island from the "highpoints of Quebec. .. as if it had been arranged to please the eye,—full of folds and wrinkles like a crumpled table-cloth" (184). At the back of each book in the series I’ve added “The Fact Behind the Fiction” which details the truth and gives deeper insight into the hidden underpinnings of our world today that began back in 1959.
