I'm trying something different this evening :D
I'm going to a free lecture at the University (right next door) on Linguistics - "Their own tongues speak against them: phonetics in the criminal justice system"

I like languages and systems, so I thought it would be interesting when I saw the leaflet. I'll let you know if it was.

Went to an event for cancer research, where vendors set up booths. A local woman was selling her Victorian fantasy romance novel.

I now own a Victorian fantasy romance novel.  ;D

We started a family+friends D&D game, and we just finished out second get-together. My character's the caster, my wife is the battle turtle, my 3 sons are the archer-ranger, the bard (LOL he's the hilarious one and cheeses it up wonderfully), and the healer-druid. It's essentially the amateur movie Dorkness Rising, which is awesome in its way and worth a watch for gamers.

Is this a novel written in Victorian times or is it set in Victorian times ? I wonder if the vender was surprised that a  good looking bloke was the buyer of said book.

Thank you for supporting  cancer research out.
I'm Saloninus, by the way. And I tell lies, from time to time. Which goes to prove the old rule; never entirely trust a man who talks about himself in the third person.

What's the name of the book? My curiosity is piqued. Fantasy and romance, combined with the Victorian era is a pretty rare combination.  ;)

Well, yes, it was quite interesting. The guy is a worldwide expert, and he explained all the work he and his firm does for criminal cases, including many high profile cases! *
He also showed us how the voice match that appears on CSI and the like, with machines doing the work quite quickly, is only used in less than 20% of the cases in real life, since it requires very good conditions to work properly. Most of the audio samples have poor quality, and require specialist human analysis - of course, they still use machines and statistical analysis and so on, but not the automatic thing.

* UK people, do you remember the case of Marine A, who shot a wounded soldier in Afghanistan? This guy played us parts of the recording and the work he did!

Both of this ;D
When I read Jmack's post I assume she had written it, so set in Victorian times, but it could also be an old book she had in the family and was selling for fund raising.

For ultament: Essential Magic by Cara McKinnon, book 1 in "The Fay of Skye"
Book cover is a pretty brunette, waist up, in a field of grain with magical emanations of various indiscernible kinds and origin.

Back cover blurb: "A woman driven to excel. A man ashamed of his past. A desire that could lead them to bliss... or peril."

FYI, from the first few chapters, it looks as though Queen Victoria is the baddie.  :)

My local library is having a sale atm.
I dropped by on the off chance they have an interesting tome for my collection.
Lo and behold, the Neverending Story for 50c, Dutch, ancient,  colour print book. It's now in my library next to my English monochrome volume.

Really?

I'm not sure rare combinations still exist. ;)
