Lady of the Lake (1999, superNOWA) 4 stars

‘…it was said that victory in this great war is so important … because it’s the great war to end all wars.’ … ‘Look, son,’ he said at last, very seriously. ‘Evangelina Parr is sitting at the bar. She is, one must admit, large. Why, even enormous. But in spite of her size, beyond all doubt, she isn’t a whore to end all whores.’

The Tower of Swallows (The Witcher Book 4) (2016, Orbit) 5 stars

Samhain’s music is the gale outside! It’s the howling of werewolves and vampires, the wailing and moaning of vengeful ghosts, and ghouls grinding their teeth! The beann’shie howls and cries and whoever hears her cry is destined to die soon. Every evil spirit leaves its hideaway, witches fly to their last coven before winter! Samhain is a night of frights, of marvels and visions!

The Cynic's Breviary (1902, Elkin Mathews) No rating

Often in early youth an opinion or custom seems absurd to us, which, with advancing years, we discover has some justification and so appears less absurd. Ought we to conclude from this that certain customs are not so ridiculous as others? One might sometimes be tempted to think that they were established by people who had read the book of life through, and that they are judged by those who, despite their intelligence, have only glanced at a few pages.

A General History of the Pirates (EBook, 2023, Standard Ebooks) No rating

In the 18th century, daring outlaws terrorized the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.

The day that Rackam was executed, by special favour, he was admitted to see her [Anne Bonney]; but all the comfort she gave him, was, that she was sorry to see him there, but if he had fought like a man, he need not have been hang’d like a dog.
