    Look who’s on the front of the German edition of Bernard Cornwell’s The Lords of the North. It’s always a bit of shock to see our friends out and about.

    It’s described as “a powerful story of betrayal, romance and struggle, set in an England of turmoil, upheaval and glory. Uhtred, a Northumbrian raised as a Viking, a man without lands, a warrior without a country, has become a splendid heroic figure.”

    Not sure what it’s got to do with the Chessmen.  If you know of other instances of the Chessmen being used (besides in the Harry Potter film), I’d be interested to hear of them and will compile a list.
