Just a small update to the site this month. A new page on animals has been added to the site under ‘The Era’ menu. Animals played an important role in 19th century life and are featured in the Alienist books quite frequently, so it seemed appropriate to include information here on their roles and treatment during the late 1800s. In this update, I would also like to make mention of the fact that the 17th Street Message Board is back up and running with a new script. Please feel free to join up and discuss anything you would like about the books, the era, or the website itself. Finally, I hope that everybody is having a very happy holiday period and that 2007 is a prosperous year with a lot of good reading ahead!
