    Excellent Ben. What’s even better is that Amazon emailed me today to say that my copy should arrive tomorrow!

    Ben, I will as soon as I’ve read it. I’ve put The Coming of the King and Raven to one side so I can concentrate on Hannibal, it’s a big old boy eh? I see there’s a review on Amazon already but looking at the reviewers history he’s already read over twenty books in June already!

    He must have some sort of Terminator book chip in his head, two books a day??? Suspicious to say the least especially with bland reviews and details that could be obtained from the dust cover or maybe that’s just me! As Douglas Jackson points out, there are a lot of dubious reviewers on Amazon.

    I’m listening to the CD audio version of The Ghosts of Cannae: Hannibal & the Darkest Hour of the Roman Republic by Robert L O’Connell and Alan Sklar at the moment when I get the chance. Have you read/heard it? It’s a whopper, nearly 14 hours worth and very detailed and goes into intricate detail before the events of Cannae and then the battle.

    @John: I’m honoured to have leaped to the top of your reading pile! 🙂 I sincerely hope that you enjoy it. Yes, it’s a long one, my longest yet, but I found the story just grew and grew. With luck, you won’t notice the pages going by!

    The first reviewer is more than kosher – he’s a really nice guy, a blogger, who doesn’t sleep much (an hour or two a night), so he reads to pass time. Check out his blog – Falcata Times. Also to be fair to him, he had a copy from the publisher about a week before the book came out.

    I’ve got the Ghosts of Cannae book, yes, but typically, haven’t read it yet. I don’t “need to” until book two of Hannibal as that’s when Cannae is. Love to get into it eventually.

    That would explain it. I’ve had a quick look at his blog before but haven’t had the time to read it properly and I need a bit more than one or two hours sleep a night! 😉

    I’m enjoying Raven but I’m struggling a bit with the other to be honest. Books about Rome and the legions will always take priority as far as I’m concerned so Hannibal it is. Oh and the fact that the Forgotten Legion Trilogy was fantastic!

    @ John I know Gareth and he is a very committed reviewer, he will have got an advance copy and read it a little while ago and probably be catching up on reviews, He is actually one of the honest ones on amazon. I now review on my own site, i have now 3500 members on my site, because people know i have read the books and the people share a similar taste so know if i say its good…its good.

    Cheers Parm, I thought as much. I was asked to join the Vine program and turned it down because I want to read for pleasure and for it not to become a chore.

    So I just got home today, and oooh-la-la!! What do we have here!? My copy of Hannibal, all the way from Amazon UK, to my humble abode in Phoenix, Arizona USA!! Since it’s too hot to go outside this time of year here in the Sonoran desert, that gives me plenty excuse to curl up next to the trusty A.C. unit, and dive on in!!! How cool to have a copy here this early!! The trailer was great, by the way! I just finished with the last novel of the Simon Scarrow Eagle series, so the timing is perfect! Thanks Ben!

    @Bonovox: wow, that’s fast! Good for you, ordering it so soon. I sincerely hope that you enjoy it! I imagine Phoenix is dang hot at this time of year, all right. This when I have just crept out to my office (can’t sleep, thanks to Spartacus!) and have had to put on the radiator as it’s so chilly. I visited Arizona in ’99, but didn’t get as far south as Phoenix. Saw the GC, and part of the Indian Nations, and some amazing dwellings in canyons – Grand Mesa? Plus a strange little town with polygamous Mormons that I’d read about in a book. Oh, and the place where you can have one limb in each of 4 states if you perch like a crab! Beautiful state.

    Too bad you didn’t get to visit Tombstone. I read that you used to read alot of western books as a kid. My hometown is actually a small mining town in Southwestern New Mexico called Silver City. Billy the Kid actually lived there as a boy. His childhood home is still there. If you ever get a chance to visit, New Mexico is a BEAUTIFUL state, just full of history!
