Today I started to read what is looking like the perfect historical novel. It is called Amgalant and you can download the first part for free on the website of its author, Bryn Hammond.
I read a lot of historical novels and most of them are more or less degrees of garbage. Some are very good. But Bryn Hammond is up there with Mary Renault, which is to say damn near perfect.
At some point I’ll either return to this post or start another one because I would like to try to explain what, in my opinion, makes the perfect historical novel. But right now I want to carry on reading Amgalant.
So let me urge you to check out Bryn Hammond’s books and leave you with some suitable music…
