Wordy Scientist’s Fantasy Job is (the) Eagle of the Ninth | A Life in Books Meme

Rosemary Sutcliff’s The Eagle of the Ninth is well known to a self-styled  wordy scientist, I learn from my Google alert. She was inspired to play along with a  ‘game’ which is about answering  questions using only the book titles you’ve read this year. Her fantasy job shows her familiarity with Rosemary Sutcliff’s historical novel.
