It is helpful to have all the links in one place. Thanks!
I wish George had squeezed out just one more Flashman book before he died.
So do I.
Excellent take on Flashman! Your descriptions are the best way to make him palatable to modern readers.
Fantastic speculation but I hate Flashman.
Awesome article! I never heard of Flashman until now.
Thank you very much! I’m always happy to spread the word!
