Peg Brantley Thanks for your Goodreads friendship, David. We share both passion for books and writing… and a birthday.

Ivan Stoikov - Allan Bard Hi! Thanks for accepting my friend request! Nice page, shelf, will be glad to share some opinions, recommendations, etc in the future here too. Best wishes! Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in your ears! (a greeting of the water dragons' hunters - my Tale Of The Rock Pieces).
Never shave your beard and mustache, BTW! You must be very proud wearing them, that's the appearance of the Mountaineers, the only people who could become and train wizards in antiquity...:)
