The story behind ZOMBIE/EVIL EYE was just posted in the Morgue at the Slade Website.

You've imagined the novel from the words on the page, and now you can see the various settings and incidents in real life.

Ok Mr Slade, in Zombie there is a lawyer called Knight, and he says...
"Here's my apology. Your ladyship is right, and i am wrong as your ladyship usually is"
Then he gets the court reporter to put a comma between wrong and as, which is brilliant grammer usage.
My question is have you ever called a judge wrong, or stupid, and got away with it, a la Knight.
And was this sentence something you used, or wished you had used in court?
“After my head has been chopped off, will I still be able to hear, at least for a moment , the sound of my own blood gushing from my neck? That would be the best pleasure to end all pleasure. “

The QC, Broompole Wilde, plays up Craven and Macbeth's romance in court and describes it as a May-December thing. Does anyone else feel that that's kind of a stretch? Their ages are 5 years apart so I don't really think that qualifies. Maybe he was just trying any angle or excuse to paint Corporal Craven in a tawdry light?

If May-December romances can be described as having a 8 year difference, then put me down for this lady's datebook:

It's fascinating how battles resonate in the minds of people even today, more than a hundred years after it was fought- Isandlwana: The defeat that stunned Victorian Britain

I was just about to post that at Slade's Facebook!

Of all the British colonial wars, Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift back-to-back are my favorites. The British colonial army suffered its greatest defeat and etched its iconic last stand in the same two-day engagement with the Zulus.

Next favorite: the Indian (or Sepoy) Mutiny.

All politically incorrect, but history is history ... and I crave drama. I don't give a rat's ass who won. How good is the story?
