      SPQR VI: Nobody Loves a Centurion (The SPQR Roman Mysteries) by John Maddox Roberts and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at   It’s volcano day, the “official” pub date of the printed SPQR Blues chapters I-IV book. Happy end of the world (temporarily and only locally)! Here's a thing you can get if you want! It's fancy! Recent Posts. Just found SPQR Blues pdf edition now available. Purchased! Thank you!

My take is that SPQR stands for the first .
