Here’s a bit about The Never-Dying Man


After finding Sauvern’s Sword, the companions set off to help a friend rescue his child from kidnappers. Instead, they stray into Erian and find preparations for war. They are drafted into the Erian army but are recognized by an old enemy, who arrests some of them and takes them to Frelli, the capital of Erian, where they are put in jail.

The Master of Erian frees them and offers them work. Meanwhile, Carthinal has to face some unpleasant truths about himself. Is his desire to further his magical career more important than his friends and country? After they discover terrible truths about the Master and his magical research, they will need to escape in order to tell the leaders of Grosmer about the plans for war.

Eating Meat to become illegal?

I’ve just read an article suggesting that meat-eating should be made illegal and a new crime of ecocide be put on the UN books.

Now, I’m not against that. The rearing of meat, especially in intensive conditions, no doubt does impact greatly on the environment. Not only on climate change, either.

These intensive farms are purely for economic reasons. The owners can argue all they like about how they aren’t impacting the welfare of the animals, but I saw, last night, a programme that mentioned the rising cost of pork in China. It showed a clip of pigs in what was described, in the case of veal, as crates. The animals would be able to lie and stand, but not turn around. Each crate housed only 1 animal.

Quite apart from the cruelty of this, surely in such intensive conditions, disease must be much easier to transmit. This will mean an increase in the use of antibiotics to alleviate this

Confused Words

The other day I was listening to the radio when I heard someone say “The FA is loathe to act on this.”

It struck me that she actually meant ‘loth’.

Loathe is to dislike intensely.

Loth is to be reluctant to do something.

There are many words that people mix up. Often they sound similar. Here are a few more I’ve heard recently.

Cowed/Cowered/Coward.

Cowed: Intimidated.

Cowered: Crouched in fear.

Coward: Someone who lacks bravery. Faint-hearted.

Averse/Adverse.

Averse: Opposed, disinclined or unwilling.

Adverse: Contrary. Hostile

Procedure/Proceedings

Procedure: Mode of conducting business.

Proceedings: An action or conduct.

I would be interested to hear any other word confusions you have heard recently. Please post your comments in the comments box

Another Promotion

I apologise, but I only just checked schedule dates. The Stones of Fire and Water, Book 2 o Elemental Worlds, is only £0.99 or $0.99 until 27th of this month! If you got Book 1 in the last promo, you might like to get Book 2 now, but HURRY. You’ve only got till Friday!

Pettic has got the gems of Earth and Air, and solved the problems of the people in order to find them. Now he has to enter the worlds of Fire and Water. what will he find? Will the worlds be composed entirely of those elements? If so, how can he manage not to be burned to a crisp or drowned? Dangers abound for the young man, and time is of the essence.
