Greetings Jovian,

I have seen this man's work.  It is a pity that he doesn't travel very much.

*You* have the obligation to educate others about your chosen art form.
That's what teaching at King's College, Candlemas, etc. is all about.  Yes,
we do end up with the "Reader's Digest Condensed Version" of a particular
topic, but often I will attend a class only to follow up on more in-depth
research at a later time.

I realize that our two Baronies are very close and almost twins, but this
particular event is in the Barony of Elfsea (Downtown Ft. Worth). Tsk, Tsk,
Tsk, Jovian...and you are one of our Baronial Guard...;-)

BTW, this man is a font of knowledge about Byzantine history, armour,
politics, etc.  I couldn't believe it when he told me that he actually
*owns* a copy of "The Oxford Dictionary of Byzantium" by Dumbarton Oaks.
Geesh...I count myself lucky to have it in the UTA library.
