Their Last Suppers: Legends of History and Their Final Meals, by Andrew Caldwell, 14 customer reviews, 4-1/2 stars
Andrews McMeel Publishing LLC (May 4, 2010)

From the Product Description: "...Part historical narrative and part grilling guide and cookbook, Andrew Caldwell's Their Last Suppers: Legends of History and Their Final Meals guides history buffs and gourmands alike through gastronomically inspired biographical accounts of more than 20 legendary personalities...

Unearthing recipes as far back as 323 B.C., Caldwell, the History Chef, provides insight into 2,000 years of culinary lore."

(A review said there are no footnotes though.)

NEWS: Star Wars
In case Star Wars fans missed it: "Random House, Lucas releasing 'Star Wars' e-books"

They're releasing the entire backlist as e-books.  "Thirty titles are currently available in the e-book format, but beginning June 28, all 106 will be available for download."

Apparently these are still very popular and none of the print versions have gone out of print in the last 30 years or so.

"All Star Wars e-books will come with bonus content including additional excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books, an updated Star Wars novels timeline and an introduction to the six major Star Wars eras: The Old Republic, Rise of the Empire, Rebellion, The New Republic, New Jedi Order and Legacy."

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
