Jess Nevin’s FANTASTIC VICTORIANA

I’m kind of busy today, so I’m just going to tell you that you need this book. And you can buy it here at Amazon for 37% off the cover price, if the $50 tag scares you. Seriously, I’ve been buried in this book for three or four months now, and it never fails to fascinate and inspire me. You need a copy.

  4. And while you’re at it, pick up Mr Nevins Annotations to [i]League of Extraordinary Gentlemen[/i]. All of these items will prevent baldness (especially in the ladies) and increase bedroom virility.

  5. I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you down the road!
