SE, I've known about that problem for a while, but I like to think that it's a lesser-known painting, about a lesser-known event.

Ookla, November in Germany is Spring in the US.  You have adjust for the international date line.

Holy crap, I feel like a moron.

I'm glad you liked the book, though!

Shall we think of it as taking place in a universe with subtly different historical details? :D
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Whenever there's an inconsistency, a wizard did it.

What I really need is an unpaid intern to check my facts.  I ought to advertise with local universities: "Want to get first-hand experience working with a published author?  Now accepting applications."

If there's a problem, throw an unpaid intern at it. It's the American Way.
