[quote=""annis""]I can see why you might have reservations about reading someone else's take on a subject you're considering for a novel of your own, Michelle. Douglas Jackson's "Caligula" is written from the POV of a gladiatorial animal trainer who becomes Caligula's personal elephant handler, (well, we that knew C was eccentric) so probably safe to say it wouldn't be an angle you'd take!
Douglas Jackson achieved a measure of fame in the Uk with this debut novel by scoring a very lucrative publishing deal on it and its proposed successor from Random House.[/quote]

Yep, I've been wanting to read it for some time as it looks excellent. I will definitely be buying the paperback when it is released in February next year.
