To clarify location and peoples in Dracula somewhat:
Who ARE these people Harker is going on about?

  • Saxons—Germanic people
  • Hungarians—also known as Magyars (pronounced mad-jar or mad-yar, from Hungarian: magyarok)
  • Wallachia or Walachia (Romanian: Țara Românească pronounced [ˈt͡sara romɨˈne̯askə] or Valahia pronounced [vaˈlahi.a]; archaic: Țeara Rumânească, Cyrillic: Цѣра Румѫнѣскъ / Цѣра Рȣмѫнѣскъ) is a historical and geographical region of Romania.
  • Székelys
  • Atilla the Hun

Collins—Episode Two hundred five: Lock, Stock, and Boxes

Just a few linky bits for you: my lovely cousin Amy’s blog, Paul Riser’s lovely essay, the Troubleshooter site for issues with the CraftLit App (iPhone, iTouch, Droid), help build an AT-AT to make America great again (giggle), and the sock book of which my wee bitty socks grace the cover.
Lookee!

Please be sure to ask your LYS to stock the book.

You SHOULD be able to see an Amazon widget right below this. It’s one of the ways you can support CraftLit. By starting your Amazon shopping from this point, CraftLit will receive a portion of the profit from Amazon. Pretty nifty. If you can’t see the widget, let me know and let me know which system/browser you’re on.

Book talk begins around 15 minutes.
