BBC NEWS | Americas | Venezuela's giant rodent cuisine: "While in many countries the Easter dish may be lamb, in Venezuela a traditional delicacy around this time of the year is the capybara, the world's biggest rodent."

Due to a glitch in amazon.uk’s system, I believe I’ve written the only crime thriller in the UK that doesn’t appear on amazon.co.uk. My publisher’s many other titles are listed, and my book can be ordered from all other uk online suppliers, as well as amazon sites around the world. Amazon.uk refuse to acknowledge their technical error.
I’m an insignificant individual, powerless to influence this huge corporation, but their indifference has incensed me. I’m attempting to battle amazon.uk’s virtual monopoly of the uk online book market by asking readers in the USA to order my inexpensive paperback through other online suppliers like amazon.com

If you would be kind enough to consider supporting my campaign against a faceless corporation, please check out my blog for details of Cut Short by Leigh Russell.

Last night I saw a piece on Animal Planet's Outrageous Pets about a woman in Austin who has one of these as a pet and treats him like a dog. He weighs a good 100 lbs and has pretty much taken over the family's pool.
