I just have to share this one. Peter James is a lovely guy and a top UK thriller writer. He's just posted this lovely story on his blog.

Souvent entre piez de chevals

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Nice story! :D
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!
