George MacDonald FRASER: Flashman
Macdonald Fraser wrote a series of books following the rise, fall and sidestep of the lovable misogynist, blackguard, cheater, liar, adulterer and above all coward 19th Century Englishman named Harry Flashman. The reader is offered an humorous account of London Society and the British military.
Flashman for Freedom George MacDonald Fraser aids Flashman in his rewriting of 19th Century history and teases us with glimpses of the famous (Lincoln, Harriet Beecher Stowe) while reminding us of the horrors of the slave trade.
Flashman at the Charge A terrific novel! Where else (in your reading) can you have a rip-roaring good time, yet be encouraged to learn more about the (ludicrous) Crimean War and the Russian expansion into Central Asia? And how Flashman survives the charge of the Light Brigade...
Flashman and the Redskins Those familiar with the Flashman series by George MacDonald Fraser will vastly enjoy this offering which spans the anti-hero's escapades across the American west in 1849, and again in 1876. Fraser proves himself the master of comedic dialogue, both internal (as Flashy ponders his latest predicament) and with various notables of the period. The terrified Flashman's conversation with the Apache chief Mangas Colorado is one jewel that stands out among the many in this work.
Flashman and the Dragon One of the benefits of reading George MacDonald Fraser's Flashman books is that, along with top-flight entertainment, you get a thorough grounding in odd bits of historical lore. Of the 10 books in the series thus far, Flashman and the Dragon offers one of the most intriguing settings, and the description of the British sacking of the Summer Palace is memorable.
Flashman and the
Mountain of Light :From the Flashman Papers, 1845-46
Flashman's Lady In this adventure, Harry is the victim of someone's lust and deviltry for a change--in the form of Suleiman Usman, a half-breed pirate who kidnaps Mrs. Flashman (bugger!) halfway around the world, leading to an epic chase involving a half-mad white rajah and a maniacal Malagasay queen. Fraser's witty prose and flawless research are irresistible.
Flashman in the Great Game One of literature's most delightful rakes is back in another tale of rollicking adventure and tantalizing seduction. The plucky Flashman's latest escapades are sure to entertain devotees as well as attract new aficionados.
"As a musician in Pella's finest brothel, Ander thought he knew all about sex between men. He was wrong. Two visitors, handsome young lovers, draw him irresistibly to a revelation: intense pleasure can be a gateway to magical realms, and sex is the key that opens the gate..."

Director: Terry Gilliam
Starring: Gene Wilder, Harrison Ford
A sweetly innocent Polish rabbi (Gene Wilder) travels through 1850's America, and forms an uneasy alliance with an inept outlaw bank robber (Harrison Ford). There are few movies that can give you a chuckle when your in a rut and put you in a better mood when your happy - this movie is one of them.
