I’m still in my writing cave cavorting with Vikings and Arabs. (I’m working on a history timeline application for the iPad for my publisher.) Writing the content for this app is very creepily like reading my DNA report. So far I think my ancestors are Vikings who invaded/traded/mingled/married in Russia, Afghanistan, India, England and Portugal. It’s very compelling stuff. I’ll have to expound on it all sometime.
If people really, really, really understood world history, they wouldn’t dare be prejudiced because with all the wars, invasions, slave trading and seafaring that went on, there is no way there’s a pure race out there except one: the human race.
