d whose kin were northern gods The fairest-faced of warriors Lombard born, Thine Almachildes.


If he loves not her, More fool is he than warrior even, though war Have wakened laughter in his eyes, and left His golden hair fresh gilded, when his hand Had won the crown that clasps a boy's brows close With first-born sign of battle.


No such fool May live in such a warrior; if he love not Some loveliness not hers. No face as bright Crowned with so fair a Mayflower crown of praise Lacked ever yet love, if its eyes were set With all their soul to loveward.




I know not A man so fair of face. I like him well. And well he hath served and loves thee.


Ay? The boy Seems winsome then with women.


Hildegard Hath hearkened when he spake of love--it may be, Lightly.


To her shall no man lightly speak. Thy maiden and our natural kin is she. Wilt thou speak with him--lightly?


If thou wilt, Gladly.<

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
