Proofs for Tabletop Wargames


Just been through the proofs for Tabletop Wargames. Very clean copy from Pen & Sword so only found a few and they are probably mine!

Daniel Mersey, of Lion Rampant fame did the layout.

It will be fun to see if readers can detect which bits are mine and which are Rick's.

All on track to be out in September this year.

The book is currently on preorder.

    2. At least an ocean! We get to hang out here in the digital world though. That is pretty cool by itself.

  4. But was it wise to write the whole thing in iambic hexameter?

  5. Dear John,
    Yes, I had the same thought as Rick. That's fine for Latin, but the normal English (compare Johnson's London with Juvenal's Rome) is to switch to Heroic Couplets. The disadvantage there is that the couplets are end stopped.
    Laymen don't realize the questions facing writers before they even start work!

    1. Listen, you and Rick may have had a classical education but you are talking to a Brunel University graduate whose only poetry knowledge is abou the one that starts..."There was a you Lady from Ealing...."
