I have just joined the list and wondered if you have ever covered the
fictional works of Steven Saylor or Lindsey Davis? >>
Yes, we read one book of each mystery series. Please refer to our Reading
http://members.aol.com/bkcnirene/page3/booklist1.htm (or without graphics:
http://members.aol.com/bkcnirene/page3/booklist1a.htm). I personally have
read them all. Excellently researched fiction!
Another good read by Davis is "The Course of Honor", a straight forward
historical novel about Caenis, Vespasian's mistress. Some idiot publisher
listed it under "Romance", which has a lot of people stay away from the book.
<<Must I read everything or may I lurk and just take part in the aspects that
appeal to me?>>
Of course not, just pick and choose. I hope the past reading list alone will
keep you busy...You might be interested though in the tentatively planned
book for July: "Island of Ghosts" by Gillian Bradshaw.

- Gordianus the Finder starts out as leg man for Cicero's trials. Very well
researched and well written. You should read them in sequence. The latest
book, not yet read by me, is called Rubicon, so it certainly involves Julius
Most of the books are available in paperback. Check my page
