Chapter Notes Overview

These Chapter Notes will mean more to you after reading a chapter or the whole book.

The notes were originally footnotes in the chapters, but most readers found them distracting. Stubbornly believing that some people like to separate fiction from fact as much as possible, I removed the notes from the book and placed them here on its website. Now no reference marks lurk in the text to distract, and given that you’re reading this on your screen, colour photographs and links to more information can be included to help explain a topic more clearly.

Please select a chapter or section on the left to read its notes.
