I do not know whether to be flattered or annoyed but someone has published a Kindle book with the title Viking Slave  – it is set in the ninth century and has an Anglo-Saxon taken as a slave by Vikings! Sound familiar? As the story is just 5400 words long and appears, from the blurb, to be semi- pornographic I do not feel threatened but… come on! Change either the title or the setting if you are going to rip off my ideas!
