[quote=""Leyland""]This sounds very interesting so I went to Amazon to look for an affordable copy - but a used paperback is listed for $217.95! That's got to be a mistake. Who would seriously pay that? The seller could at least offer free shipping instead of charging $3.99! :rolleyes:

5 others are available starting at $24.57. Hmmmm .... where did you order yours, Amanda?[/quote]

I ordered it from a secondhand seller here in Australia. It was the cheapest I could find! (16.50 + shipping)

One of my favourite books of last year! I am waiting for What Angels Fear by C S Harris to turn up in the postbox some time soon!

The Time Traveler's Guide appears to be part of a series. Have you read the others?

I don't think the TTG is part of a series, although he has written biographies of Roger Mortimer, Edward III, and Henry IV, which he refers to as a series and which I have read (they're excellent). Here's his list of his books:

A couple of recent Gellis purchases landed today and I had to share this cover for Tanzanite's blog (in case she doesn't have it).

It's the third in what's called her "Heiress series" and deals with the Napoleonic wars and some of it's set in Russia and Portugal. That's all I know.
