No dresses involved, but I was a bit taken aback by the cover of John Henry Clay's The Lion and the Lamb. Love the atmospheric photo of Hadrian's Wall, but whatever that sword is (medieval? later?) one thing it sure isn't is Late Roman. Still looking forward to reading the novel, though. :D

Dentzien's book sounds interesting, Annis; definitely checking that out later! And thanks for linking to my review. :) Sword at Sunset remains one of my favourite hist fic reads and it's great to see its anniversary being celebrated with a new edition.
