A Welcome, A Milestone and a Plug

First the welcome.  Grigork of the nicely named The Megalomaniac (Mwhaha) has joined as a follower:  I hope you find stuff of interest here.

The milestone is that we have hit the 20,000 mark.  Given that the 10,000th hit was only four months ago, I think that's good going.  I won't bore you with stats as I did then, because I have other plans for stats.  Instead here's a gratuitously pulpy Verne reference...


And the plug?  Back when Bloggers for Charity was launched I racked my brains for a way in which I could contribute.  Regular readers will know that I'm no good at painting, but that I know how to source cheap books.

I therefore acquired half a dozen as-new paperback copies of The Battle for Quebec, 1759 by Matthew C Ward - the period which is being gamed.  These are for sale on my website for £5.00, inc UK postage - the whole £5.00 will go to Bloggers for Charity.  I must say that I thought these would be snapped up within days, but there are still four left.  Head over to the website for details and to order one.

  1. I'll have one, but Firefox doesn't seem to like your website. Any hints?

    1. That's a worry. I use Firefox and don't have difficulties. Anyone else having problems?

      Gary, if you do want a copy of the book, e-mail me at diplomatist2gmailcom

    1. But the page loads OK?

      It looks like it's a problem in my drafting then. I assumed people would use the 'Contact Me' tab - I'll edit the site to make it explicit.

      Thanks for the feedback Gary and Andrew.

  3. page loads without issue, just could not see how to purchase book or would have purchased a long time ago. The assumptions of life always catch us out when a dense Viking comes knocking :)
