Goodnight Mr. Flashman

I am pretty sad this morning, to learn that George MacDonald Fraser has passed. I have loved his Flashman books since I was a teenager. Flash Harry was one of the great literary characters. He was a coward, a braggart and a bully, but he was also funny and cunning and a great anti-hero. Thank you Mr. Fraser for many years of reading pleasure and goodnight Flashy. I expect you have conned your way into Heaven by now and are busy chatting up Joan of Arc.

  1. Oh, this is tragic.

    We'll never get to hear his tales of service during the Civil War now.
