You've probably explained this somewhere before, but is so I wasn't around for it, so I'm asking: What's the significance of the asterisks in front of some of the numbers?

Particularly recommended. :)

OK, that makes sense. :-D

By the way, if you'd like to read more about the time period of Alladin's Lamp, Christopher Brooke's The Twelfth Century Renaissance is one of the classics in the field, despite being 40 years old. It's out of print now, but used copies are readily available.

Lots of the illustrious Kage Baker on your list.

Yes! Love her.

I feel guilty about not having read as much this year as in other years, but I started my first job in three years in December, so - less reading time!
27th-Dec-2010 04:18 pm (UTC) - A bit OT, but . . .
. . . I came across this and thought of you.
