Inside Secrets

a.k.a. “The Winks”    


“But he, with first a start and then a wink, / Said, `There's another star gone out, I think!'”

The Vision of Judgment, 16, George Gordon (aka Lord Byron), 1788 - 1824


What are “Winks”? Well that’s the name Eric gives to hidden references in his novels.

Sometimes these are indirect thanks to a contributor;

...sometimes they are oblique historical connections or facts;

...sometimes they are just a bit of fun.



Look for the Winks links in the left-hand side menu under each book title. There you’ll find the inside secrets of the novels, together with Eric’s comments.
