Follow Friday - King Ardashir I Destroyed the Parthian Empire in 224 A.D.

It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
  2. Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Books Are Life and One Book Two.
  3. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
  5. Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
And now for the Follow Friday Question: Share a random quote from the book you are currently reading.

I am currently reading Lovers & Fighters, Starships & Dragons, a collection of twelve pieces of short fiction by Tom Purdom. Here are quotes from the first three stories in the collection
They were good subjects. They would keep him occupied for decades. He had now lived over three hundred years. Nothing lasted forever. He had his whole life ahead of him.
               - from the story Fossil Games
It was a very civilized hijack.
               - from the story Haggle Chips
The King's sleeve flicked again. " Think you can understand the difficulties we will face if the people of our new province feel they have been rescued by a Hapsburg who offered herself as sacrifice. You must show them that Prussian discipline - and Prussian firepower - are a better defense than the skirts of a Hapsburg princess."
               - from the story Dragon Drill

    1. @Nikita Johri: So far Purdom's collection is quite good. I'll probably have a review up next week.
