It's been a VERY long time. Happy new year, everyone! What's cool this morning: Who here remembers Julia Sweeney from Saturday Night Live (early 90s, "It's Pat")? On her blog she tells us that she's currently reading my annotated _A Tale of Two Cities: A Reader's Companion_. Her comment: "I like her notes better than the actual book." Yesss! http://juliasweeney.com/march-8-2016/

Okay, here I am. Only two months since my last post. I feel almost as if I’m meeting my own deadlines. Only one month late. Pretty good. January and February 2016 Books read: 1. Felix Hol…

It's nearly Bastille Day and so _Palace of Justice_ is 99 cents for the eBook for a limited time. Vive la revolution! http://www.amazon.com/Palace-Justice-Aristide-Ravel-Myst…/…/

Louis XVI is in his grave, and Marie-Antoinette is on her way to trial. Paris is hungry, restless, and fearful in the autumn of 1793, and the guillotine’s blade is beginning to fall daily on the necks of enemies of the French Republic. Not even members of the republican government are safe...

Today is Aristide Ravel's birthday! (Yes, also Robespierre's. I chose the date so that I would never forget it and have to go hunting through piles of notes in order to find what I had jotted down about it.) So, bon anniversaire, citoyens!

"After Rome became the capital of Italy in 1861, the country became a hole." -- ROMANS WERE KNOWN FOR THEIR AQUADUCKS -- coming soon . . .

"The laws of the Hebrews were based mainly on moral behavior such as stealing, killing, and committing adultery." -- THE ROMANS WERE KNOWN FOR THEIR AQUADUCKS -- coming in September!

The next book that Spyderwort Press publishes will be edited by yours truly, but not authored. It's a collection of student howlers amassed over a couple of decades by a history professor acquaintance. The title--"The Romans Were Known For Their Aquaducks"--should give you an idea of what it's about. Look for it in September!
