So as not to disappear entirely, shall remark that Rafael Sabatini is a better writer than I would have imagined, period idiocies apart. Also, having read both Lord Darcies, went back and looked again at Lord Darcy Investigates. Last read that in the snowy late winter of 2003, in the now sadly defunct Tasty's at the end of the street, when I still had a hernia and a gall bladder and hormones and Win '95 and an unusable bathtub and a terror of Chinese. It seems simultaneously very recent and quite a long time ago, back in the early dragon days.

Also feel the yen to write gen Gaiden stories and still lack a sympathetic keyboard to do it on.
