Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Books go well with tea, and that'll warm you up. ;)
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

I just realized that my library copy of 'A Place Beyond Courage' lists it as science fiction. EC, are you hiding dragons in this novel?

Watching Little Women (1978)... and Captain Kirk is Professor Bhaer. I never knew he was in that.

In case the page changes, I've attached a screen shot. Childish but funny :)
