With all the talk of Napoleon movies, I highly recommend David G. Chandler's The Campaigns of Napoleon. You might not expect it to be a page-turner, but that was my experience. An amazing amount of interesting detail. Stole a few narrative techniques for describing battles. https://t.co/2AKXZZepT8

Finally, after 3 tries, deeply into Iris Murdoch's The Sea, The Sea, which is so very gorgeous in details of the natural world, brutal in depictions of theater and relationships and narrated by a man at best a cad at worst a monster but in such a way sublime moments shine thru. https://t.co/TEmhFWQeYC

Then there was that scary period I asked Thomas Ligotti to critique some of my stories and they were in ALL CAPS like he was always shouting at me and angry. Later learned he was emailing from work, which had a proprietary caps-only email system.
