Like a smaller and much scruffier Greta Garbo - finally - Markham speaks! It's Christmas and time for the first (and almost certainly last) St Mary's Annual Children's Christmas Party - attendance compulsory, by order of Dr Bairstow. Discovered practising his illegal reindeer dance and poo-dropping routine, our hero, along with fellow disaster-magnets Peterson and Maxwell, is despatched to Anglo-Saxon England to discover the truth about Alfred and the cakes. In his own words, our hero reveals Major Guthrie's six-point guide to a successful assignment and the Security Section's true opinion of the History Department. And of historians in general. And of one historian in particular. And, just to be clear, it is time travel, for God's sake. Forget all that pretentious 'investigating major historical events in contemporary time' rubbish. This is history without the capital 'H'. Because this is the way the Security Section rolls!… (mehr)

Friendly fire, indeed. I think this was one of the most charming of the Christmas stories that has come out of St. Mary's, and it's not just because I love the hell out of Markham. And as expected, there was plenty of pissing and pooping involved. My expectations are fulfilled. :)

Gotta love it. :) Never give up, even if the cakes are little pieces of char. :) The play's the thing! Just look at the pretty lights!

A downright hilarious story told, unusually, by the security guy Markham in the time-traveling group rather than the historian Dr Maxwell. They’ve gone to see King Alfred “burn the cakes” and returned to the rollicking, reindeer-pooping black olives Christmas party. A laugh-out-loud book. ( )

The Christmas's Stories in the Chronicles of St. Mary's series have become a tradition by now. And if you're still reading the series at this point, it is save to say you're a fan and will want to read it no matter what I say. However, since this story is narrated by Markham, who probably also is your favourite character as he's the biggest disaster magnet of all, you really don't want to miss this instalment.

Add to that the Christmas party they need to organise and something about some burned cakes (that went mainly over my head, I'd never heard about it before), and you have a very nice afternoon read. ( )

My name is Markham and I am a recovering security agent sets the tone. and, we are off on another delightful vignette from Jody Taylor. ( )

Another short story featuring the intrepid time travelers at St. Mary's. This one falls between the seventh and eighth full-length novels. In a twist, it is narrated not by Maxwell, Chief Historian and Primary Screw-up, but by Markham, hapless member of the Security Section who seems to trail mayhem wherever he goes. In this installment, where he goes is back to the 9th century with Maxwell and Peterson to discover the true story of King Alfred and the burnt cakes. The usual cockups ensue; a more rigorous reader might wonder how it is that every trip these historians take ends up with them substantially altering the historical timeline when that supposedly is the one thing that can never happen, but it's best not to dwell on such uncharitable thoughts. Back at St. Mary's, a holiday party for local kiddies is marred (or saved, depending on your point of view) by a faux reindeer dancing the can-can and spewing black-olive poo. So, pretty much business as usual. ( )
