Bernard,
I have been a fan for decades.  I just finished Stonehenge.  You likely know this but there were, as I was told, no lintels in place during WW2.  I was told my second wife's father, Ormerod, used a military crane after the war to remount the one or two that are in place today -- it has been 20 years since I visited the site and I forget how many are in place. I was awed by Stonehenge and was one of the last few common folk allowed to walk among the stones. Thank you for the story.

I didn’t know, and thank you!


Q

Just finished the Starbuck Chronicles and, next to the Sharpe Books, it was one of your best.  Living in N.Va. and NC I am surrounded by some of the most famous Civil War Battlefields.  It's no wonder so many of us, especially in the military, have enjoyed the study of the Civil War and the many battle field walks available.  Just hoping that there is another volume or two left for us avid Cornwell readers of the Starbuck Chronicles and your other GREAT books.
Look forward to more.
Thanks,

Bill Bowling

I've read most of your books and must say that I've enjoyed them a great deal.  There is one thing or issue particularly with The Pale Horseman which I think would have made my reading experience more meaningful.  The inclusion of maps so those of us who are history buffs could follow the characters in their travels in England and elsewhere.

Dear Mr. Cornwell,

I do not wish to preface this message with any type of request or attempt at your affection. I simply would like to tell you that these moments that I am taking out of my evening to thank you for your wonderful stories, are the least that I could do to express my appreciation for your talent. While I appreciate each of your many works, The Saxon Chronicles hold a special place in my heart in particular Uhtred. I find it difficult to happen upon a story line that holds my attention for as long as this one and I eagerly await the follow up to The Pagan Lord. For the sake of my fellow fans, I will not take up too much of your time. I simply feel the need to say that your books have brought joyful moments in to my life and I owe you a debt of gratitude for that. Have a wonderful evening and if ever you have the chance to come to Dallas, TX on tour, I look forward to having you sign my copy of The Last Kingdom. Many Thanks.

-Micah P.

Q

I only started reading your work over the past two years, having been a fan of (good) historical fiction for a number of years.

First of your books I read was Agincourt - superb - then I had a years delay before i got stuck into the Thomas Hookton novels on holiday in autumn last year;  I really enjoyed these (more please!). I had always known about the Sharpe novels because the of the TV series but had avoided them because there were so many!  I finally got stuck in a few months ago and was disappointed last night to find that I only have 8 left to read! Disaster!  I suppose i shall have to start all over again when i get to the end of the series...  The point of this letter is in fact to say thank you for giving so much reading pleasure (the sharpe books are superb) and for teaching me so much about the Napoleonic Wars, a period of history about  which i know very little.  You are a star - keep it up!

Kind regards

Andrew

HELL-O BERNARD,

I HAVE JUST READ HALFWAY THROUGH "THE PAGAN LORD"  AND YOU ARE DRIVING ME CRAZY!  UHTRED IS AGAIN TURNED AWAY WITH ONLY THE BRIEF MOMENT OF DEATH TO HIS UNCLE TO SOOTH HIM.  HE'S GETTING OLD MR CORNWALL!  NOW I SEE YOU ARE WRITING ANOTHER SAXON NOVEL!  I CAN'T WAIT.  LOVE THE STORIES AND THE HISTORY TO THEM.  SADLY, I FEEL THE DEPICTION OF THE CHURCH IS TOO ACCURATE, EVEN INTO TODAY.  GO WRITE.
