A Welcome from Bernard Cornwell

Bernard Cornwell

This is my website. There are others devoted to my books and some of them are very good, but this one is the Authorised Version. I want it to be useful, a place where you can find information about the novels and where you can discover suggestions for further reading. There’s a section for Your Questions and, if the answer you seek is not there, a place where you can contact me. And a Your Comments section where you’ll find the comments of others and my responses where applicable. I hope you’ll enjoy this website! Thanks for visiting.
