Indeed, we are preparing ourselves to do battle with the forces of illiteracy.

Those who choose to willfully neglect books worth reading, or who are distracted by other flights of fancy when they could have their noses buried in the pages of rollicking good reads, are hereby given time to flee.

We are ready to step into the fray of the frumious. We shall sidestep the fawning. We will do battle on behalf of the luminous tomes of historical fiction.

Prepare to be delighted by the newly released and charmed once more by bountiful backlists.

You have been warned.
