I plan to use this thread to post books and the like that interest me. As far as I can tell, this is going to be in the 'blogger section of FR. If it hasn't turned out that way, don't write in, okay?

This book is a great big load of crap. Among other things, the author claims that Thucydides was medieval, that King Arthur was Russian, and that none of the historical medieval British kings existed per se. IOW, he's an a-hole.


George W. Bush will win reelection by a margin of at least ten per cent.

[my old comment] It's like blowing the dust off a long-lost bottle of wine, or somethin'. Here's a book I've had for years in the library, beats me from where, maybe an estate sale. I was surprised that it was still around. I must add it to one of my listmanias...

I've never read the book, but watched my niece's copy of the DVD version of the movie. It's just plausible enough to suck me in, but whether it's true that Edmond James Windsor was Chuck Barris' real father, and was really a serial killer, and went to the electric chair in 1939, isn't immediately clear to me. Barris is an entertainer, after all, and other than his well-known TV shows also is known as the writer of a number two pop song.

Raised Catholic. His bit on the 72 virgins was pretty funny. As we all know, he is proud to have GWB as his president. See my review of this DVD, under my Amazon nick, "HolyOlio".

Can you find me a history book written in the 20's or 30's without all the leftist bias?

I highly recommend this book (see my Amazon review); da Vinci and Machiavelli lived in Florence during the time of the Medici, and worked together on the project described. I'd never heard of the project, and it had never crossed my mind that the two men knew each other. Two biographies in one, good read, good value:

I got the first of these (also see the "in reply to" link) for Christmas, and checked the second out of the library early this year. The one from the library is fascinating, dealing as it does with the modern events surrounding the discovery of the tomb, skullduggery, the character of Howard Carter, etc:

Well, you could just eschew books that old and read newer ones. :')

This magazine is of uneven quality, but still pretty good, worth subscribing to:

not sure I've reviewed it per se, but have loved this mag from the beginning. Same publisher as BAR, but does not have a Biblical focus. Beats the pants off "Archaeology" magazine, and basically it put "Discovering Archaeology" out of business, despite suppression by a certain bookstore chain, which shall remain nameless.

Officer and Page are a little infamous now having penned this title in which they claimed that no mass extinction per se has never taken place, the Chicxulub impact could not possibly have caused a mass extinction, and that no such impact even took place. I bought my copy off the remainder table. Jake Page is a ghostwriter specializing in science books, Charles Officer is a scientist with a little fluffy dog, and the two have collaborated on at least one other title (about global warming, gee, what a shocker):
