  1. Several here look good – thanks. I enjoyed Katherine Addison based off a recent recommendation from you – good fun, though I prefer a bit more adventure and self-defence in among the empathy and hurt feelings in a fantasy kingdom. A recommendation in return, maybe – have you tried Samuel Shellabarger? Very popular in the 40’s and 50’s, but pretty much out of print now (so very easy to find second hand). The Prince of Thieves and The Captain from Castile were both made into decent movies with Tyrone Power, but the books are better, and I specially enjoyed The King’s Cavalier.

  2. Spoils of Poynton is such a good book. I was delighted to see it mentioned in Elizabeth Taylor’s In a Summer Season. Her character are so well read.
