Beauty in Imperfection: Guest post on AllThingsHistoricalFiction

Taylor at All Things Historical Fiction contacted me via Goodreads and kindly arranged for me to publish a guest blog post on her site:

...where I try to summarise why I am obsessed with the end of the Roman Empire!

Enjoy,
Gordon

Great post, Gordon. I'm just reading CC Humphreys' A Place called Armageddon at the moment (very good, you'll like it :) ) and I'm jealous that you've got to see the Theodosian walls for yourself, though maybe not so jealous that you got to climb them- I have a thing about heights!

I've got 'A Place Called Armageddon' on my to read list. It looks right up my street with intense seige warfare and an Empire on the cusp of obliteration!

If you get the chance to go to Istanbul you'll love it, it's thriving, jam-packed with history and I found it even knocked Rome off its perch as a historical city.

Cheers,
G
