Roughly 200 pages into America Before. Went to Graham's talk at Logan Hall in London a week ago, got my copy signed! This is a very well-written book, but one thing struck me looking at the map with the Denisovan DNA "blobs" in the Andamans, New Guinea, Australia and South America - if you place Africa in the middle, you will see that it stands sort of halfway between the Americas and A

Furthermore, at dawn on the summer solstice in 9600 BC, Sirius was setting at Gobekli Tepe's latitude.

Which constellation contained the Sun on the Summer Solstice back in 9600 BC? It was Scorpius, as in the modern Scorpius that we recognise today!

Graham used Stellarium a lot in "Magicians". I've downloaded it, but noticed that the dates of the equinoxes and solstices shift by approximately two months. For example, the summer solstice is currently 20th or 21st June, but in 9600 BCE, the solstice in Stellarium is 1st September. I know it must be the solstice at that date, because I can see the maximum elevation of the sun above

My understanding from "Magicians" is that the civilisation was already around at the start of the Younger Dryas. Consider Gunung Padang in Indonesia, which is thought to pre-date the YD by thousands of years! regards, Sunil

Yes it is, sort of. You can read it on the train or bus, though it is best played with dice. For more info: Titannica wiki UFFF regards, Sunil Prasannan

Yes it's my all time favourite too! I wrote most of this on Titannica some months ago: solution summary Though I suspect you really want this: Walk-through You are 100% right about there being a misprint, though when I first played as a teenager back in the 1980s I thought there might be a secret passage there without really realising there was an error!

Thanks Jonny! Yes I have a complete collection, including the re-releases, mostly collected over the last year! I will, touch wood, have a short adventure published in the "Fighting Fantazine" January 2011 edition. The latest issue can be downloaded from a link in this thread. regards, Sunil Prasannan

To those who remember me, just a note to say I'm back again, but I do wish I could spend more time on here! In the last three years I have been heavily involved on Wikipedia, SABRE Roads and the Unofficial Fighting Fantasy Forum - um, apart from work of course. I see Graham has a new book out, and I'm intrigued to discover it's a work of fiction. But I will certainly have a read! Graham's previo

I had a little re-read of The Sign and the Seal last night and thought I had to share this with the rest of you. When Graham describes the Christian Emperors of Ethiopia finally subduing the Jewish strongholds in the Simien mountains in the late 16th century, and the beheading of the last Falasha king (Radai), upon his refusing to convert, he writes: ": 'It is better for me that I should de

Primarily addressed to Graham, but I'd just like to know why in The Sign and the Seal the Abyssinian delegation to Avignon is mentioned as a reason (not the only one) for the Papal Bull of 1307, but not mentioned at all in Talisman.

Hi Graham, Robert, everyone, Just to start off by saying that, although I'm only on chapter 16, it's been a rivetting read so far. Anyway, I want your opinion on how the same sort of 'dualist' ideas could have been expressed in Buddhism and Catharism, particularly in terms of the rather severe asceticism in both faiths. We know that the Buddha pre-dated the Alexandrian incursion of the 4th Cent

Just finished "Entangled"! A very good read indeed. Some of the visionary aspects of the story were different from what I recall in "Supernatural", but it is fiction after all. Disappointed that Sulpa wasn't dealt with, and that Leoni had to "die" but obviously that means I can't wait for part 2! best, Sunil Prasannan

I just bought my copy this morning, I read about four chapters on the Tube, up to where Leoni meets the Blue Angel. Seems like a very good read so far. Deep1 have you read Supernatural? There is a lot of science in that and in a way it might be useful to read that first. regards, Sunil Prasannan

Does it have a pre-Christian origin? I mean the tall hat worn by the pope, as in this picture: To my eye it does resemble certain kinds of Pharaohonic headdress, but then again, it could be my imagination! Sunil Prasannan Cambridge, UK
