  • I’ll have to get that book. Any chance that Special Providence could be made available for the Kindle?

    It’s a fun read, too. 🙂

    Sometime, if you’d like a week or two of light reading, try out “The Water Margin” (Chinese Robin Hood, more or less), and the great but unfortunately named “Romance of the Three Kingdoms” (A cross between King Arthur legends and the fall of the Roman Republic.)

    Any marketeer in this country should be able to come up with a better word than “Romance” … Chronicles, Tales, Legends, Epic. I think they would be pleasantly surprised by the spike in sales it would enjoy, and if there’s anyone left in Hollywood with an appetite for epics, this certainly gives you grist for that mill.
