Re:


The King's Sword - Book 1. So far I am liking it.. The mentor reminds me of the Druid from Shannara Chronicles and the 'Boy King' reminds me of Arthur from the Merlin series..

Trying to get started with an old Star Wars book I picked from fleamarket years ago.

Han Solo and the Lost Legacy is last part of The Han Solo Adventures trilogy, some of the very first SW books, only preceded by novelization of the original film and "Splinter of the Mind's Eye".


So, I've been trying to read this very short book for over two months and have gotten though less than a quarter...

Still working my way through the Flashman Papers. Near the end now; of the 12 books written on it I am on book 10. After taking part in the raid on Harper's Ferry as part of John Brown's abolitionist army he has now ended up in Hong Kong and has got himself roped into being a British agent looking into British sympathisers' dealings with the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom in China after being a scoundrel got himself into a perilous situation where this was the only route without dishonoring himself. A lot of history that I was unaware of is present in these books, and the meticulous research is evident through the notes given by the author.

I'm finally starting the book my this year avatar refers to, Gormenghast by Mervyn Peake.
This is second book of the series, sequel to "Titus Groan". The (awesome!) TV miniseries Gormenghast is based on these to books.

I have read Lord of the Rings in English. All Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy books, plenty of Edgar Allan Poe, even Milton's Paradise Lost. But Peake's text is most challenging read I've encountered.

When I'm finally done with the current Flashman book I'll move my way onto Scunthorpe Huesta la Muerta. A biopic on Scunthorpe Utd cult hero, Alex Calvo-Garcia, and what it means to be cherished as a foreign footballer playing in the lower leagues of English football during a time when it wasn't quite as common.

Re: Re:


The final book in the Flashman Papers. A collection of short stories and one involves the Baccarat scandal, which has some personal meaning to me given that the family wronged in that scandal (the Wilsons) were my direct ancestors. I am the great great great grandson of Stanley Wilson. He produced a bastard child with one of the family's maids, and that child was my great great grandmother.
