Didn’t know a sequel to Larry Niven/Jack Pournelle’ s book Inferno existed. It does.. 2007 and I just finished it. Escape from Hell was as fun to read as the first.

Also just finished The First Wall in the Siege of Terra series. Again, loving this series. Got the order mixed up. This one should have been before dan abbeys one but what the heck.

I finally managed to find a copy of the old Machine gunners novel. It was something I had to read many moons ago, in high school. I discovered something whilst reading it. The protagonist is a 5th columnist

Chas McGill discovers a downed Dornier and doesn't tell anyone about it
He lies to a policeman about it
He and his friend steal tools in order to pinch the machine gun
He steals supplies to build a tacky bunker
He helps a German pilot escape
Someone contact the Home guard. There is an enemy agent on the loose DONT PANIC

I just finished the Henry IV biography by Ian Mortimer.  Really good read.  I really like Mortimer's work.

I finally finished "Treasure Island." It was a good pirate adventure and I can see why there have been so many adaptations of it. I guess now I have to watch "Black Sails."
