  So, in a way, Bedlam is that dreaded thing, a computer game tie-in – information I've deliberately held back until now, because I didn't want to put you off. For this is not like all those.   Back to driving myself, paying for my own meals. Back to my good camera. A part of me. On the way home today, a 15 hour journey ending at Bedlam Farm at midnight. Then the move. Book tours are strange experiences, exhilarating, grueling, challenging, physical and mental ordeals. I am spent, my body and mind. Disrupted, out-of – whack.   Bedlam had first opened way back in as a hostelry for visiting church officials but also housed the poor. Its primary purpose however was to raise funds to support the Crusades, which explains its name, as it was in service to the Church of Bethlehem. Now that bit of shameless marketing is out of the way, let’s delve into the latest addition of the best book saga of all time. Bedlam is a hell of a story that both delivers on the promise of its title in bringing a tale chock-full of glorious chaos, seeing various plotlines coming .
