It was the first thing I ever wrote and there are numerous problems with it - too many to go into fully here. Suffice it to say that, for every one person such as yourself who will take the book for what it is, there are half a dozen who will give it a complete panning - which is something I can do without.

It’s impossible to determine how much of the following is actually true and how much a romantic legend. But when, centuries after a man’s death, his charm, good looks and daring cause plays and comic books to be written about him, perhaps the legend is what matters most.
