Re: The Crimson Field (US broadcast)

I've liked it very much, and I had no idea last Sunday's episode was the last one. And a one-shot mini-series with no further seasons! You're right, Princess Garnet, there were so many storylines left to explore. I'm disappointed. :(

I use one space after a period and no one (agent, editor, copyeditor, et al) has ever commented on it one way or the other. I think you're right that the two spaces originated with the typewriter, and the old monospaced typewriters at that. (Which is what I learned on, back in the Dark Ages, and so ...

Zoe Oldenbourg, who was a Russian-born historical novelist ( The World is Not Enough , one of my personal favorites), wrote an excellent (in my opinion, anyway) biography of Catherine called (not surprisingly) Catherine the Great . It was published in the sixties and appears to be out of print, but ...

One of my favorite horror stories is The Crime of Laura Sarelle , by "Joseph Fielding"--I put the author's name is quotes because it's one of many pseudonyms for this writer.
