Surely, there is no excuse for Fantasy authors in the UK. We live in an ancient country, full of mystical stone circles and haunted houses. You only have to turn a corner to see the spot where some thousand-year-old monarch had their head lopped off. Battles? Don’t come over here telling us about battles. Forget cannon, artillery, cavalry … we started so long ago we hadn’t even figured out that making our sticks a bit pointier would be a good idea.

And what triggered this rant? Well, without getting political … it turns out that the country is going to be left in limbo without a functioning government due to have to write the queen’s speech on some goat skin and let it dry for two days before we can make any laws.

Hmm.
