[quote=""David Ross Erickson""]Hello! New guy here, call me Dave.

Avid history buff and reader of both historical fiction and lots and lots of non-fiction. I've recently written a novel entitled The War God's Men, about the First Punic War (Rome vs. Carthage). Also, an epic fantasy The Blood Gate, which has lots of historical feel. The main character is patterned after Pyrrhus of Epirus. (I don't usually say that in public due to peoples' eyes glazing over.) Most of the stories about Pyrrhus are pretty fantastic, so the subject lends itself well to a fantasy treatment.

Anyway, I've read lots of historical fiction, much of it military-themed. I'm reading Stephenson's Quicksilver right now and have enjoyed Michael Curtis Ford, Steven Pressfield, Stephen Lawhead and many others.[/quote]

Welcome aboard Dave, you will find us all very nice here - hope you find it a worthwhile experience.
