'48 was since those two also - and I thought it was excellent

If I 'mean' anything it'll be that Sam asked if there were " Any good ones since " and you seem to have decided that only a couple of the bunch since were " good ".

Chronology. Chronology. Chronology! :wink:

The last fantastic one he wrote was Creed in my view - I can take or leave the ones that came after. Portent, Ghosts of Sleath, '48 and Nobody True were all quite poor in my opinion.

I liked Ghosts of Sleath a lot. I would love to think there may be another David Ash book.
