Bernard ,

your books, especially the Sharpe books have lit up our lives ( we have 5 sons) and now you've written a new Sharpe book. Thanks soooooo much

Hello, mr Cornwell.

I just wanted to express my deep gratitude for your books, especially Sharpe and Uhtred series. Their plot and your wonderful humour helped me through some hard times in my life. When I was depressed because of my private life troubles, I read your books and thought like "they survived and l will". And your version of king Arthur's story is the best i've ever read. Sorry, if I've made any mistakes, English is not my native language. Thank you once more.

I’m from Brazil and loved how you mixed romance and history at the same time! I have been reading hard all your books. I was thinking (or dreaming) about the Sharpe’s grandson at War I. I’m afraid because my checklist (all Cornwell books) is almost done. I became a great fan of you.

Best regards

Hello, Mr Cornwell.

Thank you for all of the superb books! Sharpe is my favourite. I am writing in regards to a comment made by Eddie Bleasdale on your October 24th questions page. There IS a book finishing C.S. Foresters "Hornblower During the Crisis" and it is available as a nook book from Barnes and Noble and as hardcover from Lulu.com (links below). I read it a couple of years ago and found it to be surprisingly good.

With regards,







I have loved reading all your books since first finding a Readers Digest 4 book  compilation in the South of France in 1982,  which contained Sharpe's Eagle.

My simple request/comment is something I have repeatedly seen over the years - many fans asking about  a return to the next Starbuck's novel. It may seem to be a repetitive question to you....it is....but that is because so many people want to read and enjoy his further experiences in the American Civil War.

Please give great consideration to pursuing Starbuck's career in the Army of Northern Virginia as one of your ,no doubt many, future writing projects.

Just a thank you. I've just finished Warlord and feel that I have grown old with Uhtred.

Hi Bernard

This podcast debate between Andrew Roberts and David Patreaus on whether Britain could've won the American Revolution might be of interest https://www.crowdcast.io/e/ks3iuwg6/register




I have just finished Sharpe's Assassin.

What another Great book in the Sharpe Saga.

Very enjoyable to read over 5 days.

Very good Historical  facts as well...many thanks. Good fortune for the future




Mr Bernard,

I read your books since 2002, when I was 13 years old and knew Thomas of Hookton. Last month, I finished the last book of The Saxon stories with a little sadness, as this series has become a family member.

Hi Bernard,

Just to say that I am nearly at the end of Sharpe's Assassin and have enjoyed it every bit as much as all the other Sharpe stories. Many thanks for all the pleasure these books have brought me.

I can only say that I am very much hoping you will find a gap (or several gaps) in Sharpe's timeline that will allow for more Sharpe books. If at all possible I would like to see the reappearance of "Sweet William". He is such good value as a character that you simply have to find a way to bring him back!

Best wishes

Guy Roberts
