So I'm running through my normal morning routine, looking at the sites and blogs that I read every morning, and what do I run across on Instapundit? He's in the air and reading a book that I completely enjoyed, 'Drawing of the Dark' by Tim Powers. The book features a large scale battle between the Ottaman Turks and forces from the West. At the heart of the battle is a contest to secure a magical brewery. That's right, the magic of beer. Throw in the Arthurian legends, Odin and a very creative view of Christian history and you've got a fine read.
