I've just brought your book and read it in one sitting. I would like to congratulate you on your excellent work; it's one of the most readable books on classical history I've come across in years.

I'm looking forward to starting on The Last Pagan!

By the way, have you ever thought of writing a book on Stilichio or Flavius Aetius?
I've been wanting to read a book on Aetius for many years, but the only book available is a romantic novel about a love affair between him and Galla Placidia.

Adrian Murdoch

Thank you so much - that is incredibly kind of you.

There is certainly something to be written about both Stilicho and Aetius - the difficulty is that John O’Flynn's Generalissimos of the Western Roman Empire and Penny MacGeorge's Late Roman Warlords cover that area pretty well.

Dafydd Evans

I will have to get those other titles out as well, thank you for the recommendations!

I have began reading The Last Pagan and I'm enjoying it as much as The Last Roman. Another excellent title on a fascinating figure; one that's encouraged me to go back to Ammianus Marcellinus in the near future.

Thank you once again.

Adrian Murdoch

I am so pleased that you are enjoying it too.
