It's Been Quiet...


Too quiet. No, I'm not up to something, just trying to get over a willful and persistent cough, make a start on book edits for my publisher, and wrestle the garden under control between times. Meanwhile, a visit to our local library turned up this classic...

https://www.amazon.com/Guns-August-Outbreak-Tuchmans-Nonfiction-ebook/dp/B002TXZS8A

...which is a go-to reference for all things related to the Great War and its causes, and Margaret MacMillan's Paris 1919 about its aftermath.


I'm on something of an early 20th Century kick at the moment, doing research for a murder-mystery set in 1923. The books listed above are great references for the war and the Back o' Beyond campaigns that spluttered on around the world, particularly in Asia and the Middle East.

Gaming-wise, sometime in the next couple of weeks I hope to play out an encounter between the Barsetshire Regiment and a nefarious band of slavers, and perhaps (who knows?) even play the last game of my VBCW Thetford-Bury St. Edmunds campaign. Watch this space.

Hope you shake off the troublesome cough soon, best wishes.
