Dear Mr. Bernard Cornwell,
I am a big fan of Lt. Richard Sharpe who fought during
The Napoleanic Wars for the British.I like the Series.
I hope you will continue writing.
I am 38 pages from finishing Book 4 Sword Song and I enjoyed the coverage of Old Roman London. For the reasons why the Saxons refused to live in Roman London made a lot of sense to me that many of the Roman buildings continued to exist. What a lot of people do not know, moreover, is Rome's structures around Palatine hill were still used particularly by the Byzantine Exarchs and that people were chosen there to maintain the palaces. What brought down many of the Roman structures was a major earthquake about 847 AD including the Caracalla baths. I'm anxious to know what happens to London in the succeeding volumes. I'm waiting for one of the Priest to destroy part of London.
The Warrior Chronicles are fantastic, I feel like I'm right there with Uhtred. Please don't stop adding books to the series.
Ok by now Mr. Starbuck must be getting close to being listed as a deserter. Please do not let this happen. PLEASE continue the story, end the civil war, send him out west, but please please continue the story.
Dear Mr. Cornwell
Thank you for the above books. I found them to be gritty, realistic, and on a par with Tolkien or Eddings for sheer brilliance. If I didn't know better I would swear you were actually there at the time!!!
Keep writing and enriching our lives........please.
Take good care
You really have to put Uhtred on film. The story's just to good...
I've long enjoyed your books, and sometimes I pick up the other books you note you've used for flavor, for instance Charles Bracelen Flood's Rise, and Fight Again for The Fort, which I enjoyed and led me to his other books, too. After 1356, I have high hopes for Ann Wroe's A Fool and His Money. Thank you for your own hard work and wonderful books, and for the recommendations of other authors..
I have just finished reading the first novel of this saga (The Last Kingdom) and I am eager to continue the saga, the only problem is that I live in Argentina and I can't find them anywhere. I'm making a friend bring me all the books so I can finish it..
ps: I'm making all my friends read it
Just to send you best wishes and hope you will write long cause I enjoy very much your books. No need to answer on this.
Hi, Mr Cornwell,
I am a brazilian reader of you amazing book, Agincourt.
I would like to tell a physical characteristic of the manufacture of arrows that was missing in the book, and may put the life of Tom Perril in danger in the first pages of the book.
The feathers on the back end of the arrows are not put in a perfect line, but in a gentle helical curve that makes the arrow, to be shot, spin around its own axis and therefore be aerodynamically stabilized and with better accuracy. The English artisans knew this phenomenon, as well as the Brazilian Indians, who also build such weapons.
I thought the author of the book would like to know it, as a research data to descript battles. Please don’t reveal if Tom Perril died or not at the end of the book, because I still am reading it.
Congratulations on your excellent work!
Which is why those feathers had to come from either the left or right wing of a goose – not from both! Thank you!
