    Egerton Castle was, along with Captain Alfred Hutton, one of the real pioneers of the revival of historical fencing. During the late 19th century their small clique in London initiated a serious, decades-long project to research and then restore the martial arts of rapier and dagger fencing, the use of the sword and handbuckler, etc.

    Castle was also a professional novelist whose two major swordplay-themed short stories have now been compiled into The Sword and the Pen. The first tale, My Rapier and My Daughter, is a lighthearted romance of two star-crossed lovers, played out almost entirely inside the rapier fencing academy of Master Vincentio Saviolo. The second story, The Great Todescan's Secret Thrust, concerns the quest of a young English bravo to learn the invincible killing stroke of a mysterious master swordsman.

    I must learn to read things more carefully. Until I re-read it, thought the above posting mentioned a work entitled My Raper And My Daughter.

    Yeah, that would've been a very different play ...

    But not "very different" from Vieux Normand's typical dramatic entertainment...

    Not to further derail matters (he writes, further derailing matters), but just yesterday I walked past a sign which stated:

    It's not too late to treat your Valentine.

    Trouble is, it was handwritten and the first two letters of treat ran together and looked almost exactly like a "b".
