    I really liked Song of Roland. It was possibly the first medieval lit that I actually enjoyed. I'm fond of the epicness, far fetched as it is... actually I think that might be why I like it.

    A couple of his books were available on the Sony ebook site a couple years ago, but for some reason they took them down. :( I've seen Indian Killer and I want to say Lone Ranger and Tonto (but it...

    Chiming in on this as much as I can. I read this book a long time ago, so I'm not 100% clear on details anymore - that and I would find it amazing if the OP from 2004 still has the same question in...

    Yup, he's the Black Prince. They say it a couple of times - it's why Will wins that first tournament. What's-his-face bad-guy withdraws because they find out Colville is really Prince Edward, but...

    I agree with Cunninglinguist that Jack was, at least in the beginning, well intentioned. I think the obsession he derived from the hunt was his biggest problem. He was certainly competitive, and ...

    I'm too distracted by the constant quakes to comment on much... but wasn't James Purefoy the Black Prince in A Knight's Tale? Was he supposed to be a villain? Totally missed that if it he was. :P ...

    I usually write in my blog about whatever I've recently read, but I don't have any set way I go about it. Name and author, of course, usually a short summary, then my thoughts. Sometimes I'll pick...

    Income tax here is pretty reasonable, but residence tax and all of the other things the government takes money for (sales and insurance to name two major ones) add up to be a lot. Where that money...

    All of those old prejudices are really coming back to surface again, which is sad and utterly pointless (and stupid) in my opinion. Some of my Japanese friends here have started to get paranoid...
