Hornblower book available to all
So I looked again on the Powell Books website for the book "Life & Times of
Horatio Hornblower" by C. Northcot Pa rkinson which was in the Popular
Fiction dept. but it wasn't listed. I learned from a phone call that they
only update their listings every 24-48 hrs. so what I saw last night was
already sold. BUT it is a reprint (I think paperback) bor $10.95 and they
ordered one for me. So anyone can order one now. It seems from Neil's
description that there were pictures in the original but I don't know
whether this will also contain them???? But I don't have to take it they
said, if I don't like it. But I think I shall.
I see that another company has sent a mail notice to me about the book:
"Queen Emma (St. Clair) and Queen Edith" (w/o Edward the Confessor thus
Edith Swan neck was also Emma's daughter-in-law and sister to King Harold
who was the Saxon king for just about 9 months then defeated by William the
Conqueror). Our cousins were certainly in the thick of things back then.
Don't you love these names. Edith Swan-neck. The one I like the most was an
icelandic woman named _____the deep minded ummm that doesn't sound just
Question: a few years ago I was sent the name of William Long Sword as the
name of Rollo's son but now I am seeing it as William Long beard. And what
was the nickname for the 3rd Duke of Normandy, Richard ________ . Did the
4th Duke have a nickname? How about the 5th Duke Richard? Then we know the
6th Duke was Robert the Devil and his son the 7th Duke William the
Bastard/Conqueror. Who was the cousin of our William the Seemly.
