Where are my royalties, Tim?

After I wrote my book on national anthems, many, many, many people told me to do a follow-up on flags and – for some reason – I decided to give it a miss.

About a year later, Tim Marshall, the author of the great Prisoners of Geography, and no relation to me, did it so removing my dilemma. You can get his Worth Dying For: The Power and Politics of Flags here.

Last night, I finally saw a copy and it was very nice to find my book being called “invaluable” in his bibliography. Amazing to be cited anywhere, to be honest. Although I’m assuming that means he owes me several million pounds in royalties. I look forward to the cheque, Tim!
