Heading to Cannae

After a great night out in London with fellow Roman authors (JAFRAs), Anthony Riches, Russell Whitfield, Robert Fabbri and Henry Venmore-Rowland, I’m heading to Bari in Italy. My destination is the battlefield of Cannae, which lies about 45 mi./65 km NW of Bari. I visited the site briefly last year, when I was on my Spartacus road trip, but this time I’m going there specifically to soak up the atmosphere before I write the battle scene of all battle scenes. I’ll try to add some photos asap. Ciao!

    @Rodrigo: Buenas! Como te vas? Gracias por tu email. Lo siento por mi castellano, lo que ahora me falta. Una vez, puede hablar/escribir mucho (porque viaje en america del sur por un ano, en 98/99. ME amo Argentina, y tengo familia en Bs As.)

    I’m glad that you liked the trilogy! As for Brennus, well, I think he’s alive, but I am not sure…!

    Anibal, Enemigo de Roma has just been translated into Spanish, so I hope you can find that before Spartacus.

    Heil to the readers,

    Just back from some shopping in Aduatuca Tungrorum, so I’am confident for the following.
    Being from the region of the Eburons I may say this, if Brennus only has 10% of the blood of the Eburons, he is positively alive with a nice wife and family, probably worked him up to be general or governor of a rich region. Also he is infamous for his untemperred strenght and ability to swing his broadsword, getting a bit older he shows more caution to his approach of wine and beer ( I’am not sure if this last sentence is for me or Brennus).
    He is alive and missing his friends. A new series of books about the trio would be nice but the last word is the autor’s one.
    Merry Xmas and happy New Year to all.
