I'm hearing some good buzz about this. I'm going to see if I can finagle the library to purchase otherwise I'm getting it. http://www.amazon.com/Master-Bruges-Terence-Morgan/dp/0230744125/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1262812402&sr=1-1

Ooo and I love Hans Memling (was an art history minor in college).

Quite a few friends at Goodreads are all abuzz about it. EC (Elizabeth Chadwick) has read it and had good things to say, although I guess the theory on the Princes is a bit odd.

Is there going to be a US release? It really does sound good!

Vali, no idea but the author is definitely following comments over at Goodreads, and I've asked him this. http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/82663266?utm_medium=email&utm_source=comment_instant

Thanks, Misfit! Of course, I wouldn't have a problem buying the UK edition if that's all there is, just curious. I was actually thinking I'd read about this book somewhere else, but can't think of where.

Tell him to send you a review copy so we can get a good review from someone we know and trust. ;-)

(Not that we couldn't trust anyone else who has written a review already, but we'd see yours here!)
