My mate Derek has gone and earned himself yet another honourable mention in dispatches. When he arrived for the Delvers Game on Friday he came bearing gifts!
Derek's book Karl: Birth of Mystery has arrived from the printers and is now being shipped for all those people who pre-ordered. Mine however was hand delivered by the author himself. When I have finished my current book I'll read Karl next, that is of course if my daughter has finished reading it first!
As well as his own novel Derek also gave me two other books which will join my growing collection in the 'must-be-read' pile. Both look very interesting but I'm particularly keen to read the El Alemein book as the war in the desert has always fascinated me.
So once again I find myself saying thank you to Derek, you are a scholar and a gentleman!
