  • Dragons exist and they link up with their ‘Captain’ in a life-long partnership.
    Indeed they do apparently ;)
    ... in China they’re seen as honoured citizens.
    Quite so and especially this year.

    In your Twitter feed, Martin you ask "Not many dragon lovers out there?" ... well I would take issue with the premise of the question as anyone married to someone born in the following years would have agreed, at least until they discovered the dreadful truth :p

    I'm nearly at the end of book 4 after picking up Book 1 on kindle (for Android) just after new years, loving the series!

    The Post office have just invoced us at £200 fee for the next year. Last year it was about £127.
    How can they justifu nearly a 60% increase?

    Only just found this thread but I love the Temeraire series and Naomi Novik's writing (although she does seem to like semi-colons more than most). Have bought a number of the volumes as signed first editions. Peter Jackson bought the film rights some years ago although latest suggestions are that the works will be high production value mini-series through HBO or similar, rather than feature films. Something of a disappointment but doubt that much will happen until The Hobbit has been completed anyway..
