By Steven Saylor : I see Steven is releasing a second compilation of short pieces featuring Gordianus the Finder:
"Fresh from his duel of wits with Cleopatra (in last year?s acclaimed novel THE JUDGMENT OF CAESAR), Gordianus returns in this new collection of short stories.
Nine tales of mystery, murder, and intrigue take the Finder from the seamy streets of Rome to elegant villas on the Bay of Naples, from a Sicilian graveyard with a deadly secret to a bloody battlefield in Spain. Whether against the spectacular backdrop of a chariot race, or settling a domestic dispute with his beautiful Egyptian concubine Bethesda, Gordianus is always on the case.
The book also includes a detailed chronology of all nine novels and eighteen short stories in the ongoing Roma Sub Rosa series."
