    There are some things ungoverned by fate. If Sirius Black had gone the path of every Black before him, if he had been in Slytherin, he would have been a very different boy. It would have been a very different war.

    “Enjolras has a mistress!”

    Grantaire stopped short right in front of the Musain. “Impossible,” he said.

    Enjolras's new mistress is the female personification of France - or so he says. Grantaire thinks she might be an evil spirit.

    Summary

    The son of the man who lost the Eagle of the Ninth would never be allowed a first command of his very own fort, would he?

    Marcus is posted not to Isca Dumnoniorum, but to a wretched and run-down garrison north of the Wall. There he finds that he is the new centurion of a group of scouts and spies, all of them British. He has few supplies and no experience. His men distrust him. His superiors despise him. His second-in-command is an incompetent drunkard. And the local tribes are determined to kill all of them.

    But the worst thing of all is one of Marcus' soldiers. He is an enigmatic, dangerous, and insubordinate man by the name of Esca, who makes Marcus yearn for terrifying things he has never before wanted and can never, ever let himself have...

    Summary

    “Don't ask me to prove what I'd do to free the hostages. Just - don't.”

    Owen Harper swore once he'd never set foot in a hospital in a staff capacity again. But an accident with an alien artefact puts him exactly where he doesn't want to be: behind the administrator's desk in a large medical facility. To make matters worse, it's somewhere called Barrayar, which seems to combine far future technology with the social attitudes of an ancient episode of Dr Kildare. And then he's called to a Situation on the roof, and meets someone who reminds him eeriely of home.

    Summary

    My subject in this tale is the life of Alexander the King. The career of this man embraced such a multitude of events that my preamble shall consist of nothing more than this one plea: if I do not record all his most celebrated achievements that you not regard this as a fault. Plutarch, Life of Alexander

    Alexander at the tomb of Achilles: Oh fortunate youth, to have found Homer as the herald of your glory! Cicero, Pro Archia

    With love and undying fame at stake, Alexander takes matters into his own hands.

    As magic slowly creeps back into the world, there are many people and many small stories.

     

    A river man, or a man of the woods or of any farm-life
    of these States or of the coast, or the lakes or
    Kanada,
    Me wherever my life is lived, O to be self-balanced for
    contingencies,
    To confront night, storms, hunger, ridicule, accidents,
    rebuffs, as the trees and animals do.
