This is how it starts…
I have an idea–a little rabid bunny that won’t leave me alone–and so I need to research it. Because more ideas flow as I dive into wiki pages, and people’s blogs and then, then, it’s not enough. I need a book. One that’s specific to my research…
I have a plan for two fantasy romance novels involving astrology and prophecy. (It’s still brewing, by the way…) And I stumbled across this brilliant book. Yes, it’s an academic text, but it teaches you how to cast a horoscope via ancient methods…and the society, the structure these astrologuers lived in… Bliss!
Ah, but then…
I see that this book is a part of a series, Sciences of Antiquity.
You can guess where this went, can’t you…?
It went here:
And writing this post…I found one in the series I’d missed. Ancient Meteorology. How? How did I miss this??
So, it’s now on my wish-list. No, I really, truly can’t help myself… 😉
Just to add, if you want to follow me down this path, some of these titles are OP and I got them second hand.
