Hi Daren, and welcome to HFO! My second book, The Silver Eagle, has a number of encounters between Roman legionaries (prisoners from the battle of Carrhae, 53 BC) and Scythians. *surprised you forgot that, Annis!*

Harry Sidebottom's excellent books - so far there have been three - will take his hero into Scythia in the fourth volume. It won't be published in the UK until summer 2011; I'm not sure when it comes out in the US.

I just noticed this was my 500th post! Hurrah!

Oops, sorry about that, Ben! If it's any consolation I gave all 3 of your books to one of my sons for Christmas and he's been really enjoying them :)
Congratulations on reaching the big 500.

Lol! As I said somewhere else, God bless the train-spotters of the world :) What would information seekers do without them?

Thanks for the suggestions *annis and *parthianbow...definitely scheduling a book-buying spree for these goodies.

Following my intensive research into the postings record on this site, a question poses itself! Where is my mate Chatterbox? Not heard of since June 2010?????? :confused: :p

Back in the middle of last year CB did say she would be AWOL for a while because of her book launch, but that was quite a while ago now. Perhaps she's working on another book?
