Enjoying it so far, a bit Doctor Who-ish but entertaining.

Middle Earth, during the War of the Ring.
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!
- "Into Battle"

I've been in Asimov's Caves of Steel with Elijah and Jezebel and a robot or two.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite 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.

Ah, the SF classics. I'm reading one too, although it puts me in 6th-century Gothic Rome. with a few modifications introduced by out early-20th-century archaeologist protagonist: brandy, the printing press, and a semaphore signaling system.
