Amazon just made The Hawk and His Boy free. I was hoping they would do that, and – lo, and behold – they did. If you don’t have a copy already, please go and get one. Unless you utterly, completely, totally despise epic fantasy. If you do, then may I instead suggest a meal of a nice, fresh Agatha Christie, followed by a bowl of short stories by Flannery O’Connor, a main course of Charles Dickens, and a dessert of Robert Powell (a slice of Don Quixote USA).
