Just wanted to say how much I am enjoying these vignettes. An engaging mix of historical facts, doubtless diligently researched, into which is inserted a very likeable fictional character - not to forget a considerable amount of 'action'.

Very much recommended.

Thanks for the kind words. A number of readers have written directly and told me much the same, so I am pleased with the reception these tales have received, with the exception of one critic who thought the Naked Prey stories were too repetitious, the same story told over and over. Admittedly they are all written to the same formula: one or more cute twinks on the run from danger while bare-ass naked, but each does have its own setting, challenge, and plot. If I have a favorite among these tales is "Source of the Nile."

Mills and Boon / Harlequin have stories which are all the same formula, and are very successful because of the inherent concept of boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy has to go on an impossible quest, boy finally gets girl.

I spotted a couple of quasi-identical paragraphs in the later vignettes, but they are vignettes not a serial. Thus that matters not at all.

The formula works.

Much like a Columbo plot, we know, broadly, what is coming. The fun is in the unfolding of the events that are to come.

Inconsistent use of capital letters is the difference between Bobby helping Uncle Jack off a horse, AND Bobby helping uncle jack off a horse!
