      I was able to get used copies of a couple of Duggan's books fairly cheap
      over the Internet.

      I read Hersey's book, it was pretty good, about the Pisonian conspiracy
      against Nero, in the form of letters and dispatches among several
      characters.

      Those others look interesting.

      I too enjoy Duggan, but have only ever been able to find THE LITTLE EMPERORS
      from his Roman history series. (His mediaeval novel, KNIGHT WITH ARMOUR, is
      on my "to read soon" list.)

      I'm currently reading Dmitri Merejkowski's JULIAN THE APOSTATE, aka THE
      DEATH OF THE GODS. Trouble is, Merejkowski is even harder to find than
      Duggan!

      I'm particularly interested in Roman novels by "literary" authors. Have any
      of these yet been read and discussed on the list?:

      Gustave Flaubert: SALAMMBO (etext available online)
      Wilkie Collins: ANTONINA (etext available online)
      John Masefield: CONQUER; BASILISSA
      Robert Graves: COUNT BELISARIUS and LOST EAGLES (I'm presuming the CLAUDIUS
      novels have already been done here)
      Evelyn Waugh: HELENA
      William Golding: THE DOUBLE TONGUE
      John Hersey: THE CONSPIRACY
      Anthony Burgess: THE KINGDOM OF THE WICKED

      Finally...
      I have Christian Meier's CAESAR lined to be read next. Has this biography
      yet been discussed by the list?
