Welcome to the board. I always enjoyed reading your SPQR mysteries. Will definitely come back once I find time to re-read them and a question comes up to my mind. :lol:

Salve, Iohanne - et Scriptor et Auctor - et alii Iohanne, ut sum -

Nonne tuum nomen in Barbariani Conanis librorum faciebus conspectavi? Aren't you one of the writers of new Conan tales? I'm sure we all welcome you here.

I don't read much popular fiction nowadays, so unfortuneately I haven't read any of the SPQR mysteries. I will have to head over to Wikipedia and see what they have to say about your opera.

I wonder - were R. E. Howard alive today, whether he might've joined the Societas Via Romana. In his fictive nation of Aquilonia, you get a mix of both medieval France and ancient Rome - a wonderful fusion.

Point of Law

Postby Valerius Claudius Iohanes on Sat Mar 31, 2007 3:01 am

Salve Decimi Caecilii, atque sodalibus omnibus s. p. dico.

I got a copy of your 10th SPQR book, "A Point of Law", and have just begun it (between studying and work and my family's demands). It's a great read for an untutored adopted Roman like myself - lots of characters, situations and historical personages, geography and landmarks of the city. Gratias tibi, Caecilii; volumen bene incipit.

I recommend this book, especially for those of us who are not a Bachelor, a Master or a Doctor of the Classics.

Valete bene sodales omnes.
