At 09.57 hours on 17 Oct 1940 the unescorted Aenos (Master Dionisisos Laskaratos), a straggler from station #74 in convoy SC-7, was missed by a G7e torpedo from U-38 about 80 miles north-northeast of Rockall. The U-boat then surfaced and shelled the ship until she sank at 10.52 hours. Four crew members were lost. The master and 24 crew members were picked up after five hours by the Canadian steam merchant Eaglescliffe Hall (Master Charles Madsen), another straggler from the same convoy.

It was past mid-day when I reached the small temple dedicated to the guardian deity of the hills.

Vogelein: Clockwork Faerie -- Vogelein is a tiny clockwork faerie who depends on a chosen human--her guardian--to wind her every five hours or she turns into a lifeless automaton. When her guardian of 50 years passes away, she is left to find a new keeper she can trust...a sizable task for a small faerie in a huge, rapidly changing world. A lovely story with deeper themes about companionship, magic, and humanity.

Warrior Queen Aoife in combat with Cúchulainn (Howard David Johnson). A very accurately Celtic depiction, not like some of his other paintings, which depict Boudicca in a very un-Celtic way, and Goddess Andrasta wearing a Rohan Royal Guard's armour!
