alsih2o: Thanks. This stuff really makes my day. I'm only copying it right now, because I have to (gasp) work, but I'll try to post any use I'm going to get out of them when I have a chance to look at them :).

Medieval science - alchemy section - articles - BLACK TOAD ICONOLOGY IS SWEET!!! Ahem. I'm going to be reading through that alchemy section all week, now, thank you.

The aboriginal warrior tales were good, although I kept hitting the interesting parts just as it would end and say, "to buy the books...". You don't think that was deliberate, do you?

The real gem is going to be in about a year or two, when they determine whether or not they found Gilgamesh' tomb. Wow.
