Dear Bernhard Cornwell,

I am a fan of your Warrior Chronicles and interested in history and historic places. So, I ran into this report on Bamburgh Castle by 'Time Team'. I am pretty sure you know this (and related reports by the team), just in case you do not know it, here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQ6MUyfqOcs

Best regards,

Thank you – I had seen it, but it was good to be reminded!

Dear Mr. Cornwell.

I drive a lot so listen to your books on tape (I still say tape cuz I’m 55) First book was the fort. Being an American, I thought it was the American ship captain who was the main character. I really like the Saxon series. I have a brother in-law who is a prophesier of medieval literature.  He likes the fact that I know about that period of England. So do I, like you said us USA ers . Know to the day when we started. But Anglo land  is more hazy. Oh I must have looked like idiot when my brother in-law told me that Ethel red was the king of England. Love the fact vs. fiction at  the end  the best. Especially the  Spanish soldiers who all fired their guns a then dropped them and started running. I really laugh at that. I could see it happening those old black powder guns are uber loud. Keep up the good work.

Re:  Wildtrack -

Although it's one of your earlier books, it is quite an enthralling story. Unfortunately its was the Readers Digest condensed version, although it's still a hard story to put down. I grew up in South Devon in Dawlish and later Dawlish Warren so your story's location is of natural interest. Been in Australia for nearly sixty years. Thanks for a couple of hours most enjoyable reading.

Wanted to leave a comment but couldn't figure out where I was to go to "add" a comment.  No bother, just wanted to let you know that my husband has read ALL your books and has your entire collection!  I am always happy to see new ones come out as they make a great Christmas gift for the man who has it all.  Even though we both have KOBO's he still prefers to get your books rather than electronic.

I have now starting ready some of your books and also enjoy your writing style and choice of stories.

Firstly, good night!

As you may have noticed, I'm Brazilian, so I'm using the google translator to write. But it could not do it. I'm reading the "Saxon Chronicles" and I'm devouring them! You write very well, not even leap descriptions that Uhtred is of the battles and has a fantastic mood! The shot of this character are excellent, caught myself smiling often alone, even when I read on the bus or on the way back from the service. Incidentally, not only him, but also the priest Pyrlig. Part of the alleged submission, afraid of him before facing Sigefrid; the discourse of Uhtred and Ragnar, in front of men to convince them to serve King Guthred, with Father gaping Beocca; the way Uhtred silenced this and at other times. Usually do not like books narrated in the first person, as well as express their version of history, the view tends to be more limited, but not so with his books because the information is entered via the "later".

Not only liked three things so far: Uhtred have failed Bebbanburg (at least that was understood in the first book), he was married to a pious and the death of Leofric. In addition to the other, of course, but I will not question them,, not want to make any suggestion. Unless you do not leave me in a vacuum for a long time, in fact, not only me as the hundreds, thousands of assiduous readers, sure, you have.

Remains only to congratulate you for being an excellent writer and thank you sincerely for the moments of pleasure that gives me.

Mr. Cornwell,

 

My father passed your book, Redcoat, to me after he read it in the early nineties. At that time I was raising my family and therefore, recreational reading became a casualty of the times.

 

I recently discovered your book on a shelf and completed it in a few days. Being a South Jersey native and a local history buff only served to  enhance the enjoyment  that I felt while reading your wonderful book. I attended high school in Gloucester, work in Haddonfield, and visit Fort Mercer on the Delaware often. I think I particularly appreciated the English perspective. In addition, you absolutely captured the local geography of the 1770's!

 

So thank you for taking the time to research and write about such an important time in both American and British history.

Mike Busarello

 

 

Best regards.


Q

Dear Mr. Cornwell

In Brasil you is absolute success. Here there are many more fans than you think. When Sharpe come to the sides of South America, do not forget to pay a visit to our ports and up to something riot.

A big hug to Uhtred !!

Dear Bernard

 

In further to the post 6th August on Starbuck, there is the option of Starbuck heading to Mexico with Jo Shelby who refused to surrender. Shelby himself was called by a Union Cavalry General (who had fought in the East too) as the best he ever saw.

I do wonder if you would ever get Starbuck to the Western Theatre anyway as it's relatively unexplored.  While Starbuck should at least meet Patrick Cleburne dubbed the Stonewall in the West at least once.

 

Yours sincerely

 

P.S If you have not read it, I would recommend A World on Fire by Amanda Foreman on the British presence and people who fought in the US Civil War. Very interesting.

I'm a very keen Archer, and I have really enjoyed reading your books about Thomas.

Your books are very easy and addictive to read - you have a real gift.

Kind regards

Davy,
