Glad you're enjoying it Misfit - and sorry about your applecart - not! :p

EC, that's the kind of applecarts I like to see upset. I've been on a binge with these old epic sagas from the 70's and 80's and loving it. How I missed them the first time around tho.....

Bouncing between Andrew Lang's The Red Fairy Book and Conn Iggledun's Wolf of the Plains. Then it's onto an Austen reread of P&P.
