Q

I notice on your sites' Diary page that you've removed mention of a North American tour for Sharpes Escape. Please tell me it's an oversight!! I was able to get Sharpes Havoc signed in Virginia last year and thoroughly enjoyed hearing you speak. Ron Malecki

A

Sorry Ron, it's not an oversight. We thought there might be a US tour, but it's not going to happen this year. Details for the Canadian tour should be posted by the end of the week.


Q

hi.. I'm in Australia and I love Sharpe, it's amazing how it spurs your imagination. I really hope you continue to create more Sharpe books as I will always continue to read - thanks for bringing me back to reading. Tristan


Q

I was first introduced to Sharpe on the History Channel here in Canada. My new boyfriend and I began to spend Friday evenings with Sharpe and his Chosen Men and during the course of the series fell in love with each other. We are now living in our new home, and were delighted last night to see Sharpe's Rifles on tv again. It's been almost 3 years since we first began watching the series and can't wait to see more. My boyfriend loves the cameraderie of the men, and I love the romance of the stories. Thank you for giving us something to enjoy together. Donna

Hi, I have just been to the local WH Smith and seen Sharpe's Eagle with a new cover. I am surprised as the old cover was just 'new', but I really like the new new cover, portaying the battle of Valdelecasa, I was tempted to buy it, may still do, my copy is pretty tattered looking. Sorry you stopped work on Warrior, and am looking forward to Sharpe's Escape and the Alfred book. Adrian.


Q

Bernard I love your books and have read and reread all your work. The mix of history and fiction is just great. I was hoping that you would be writing a new Starbuck book soon as I would like to know how Starbuck got on after the battle of Sharpsberg. Cheers and thank you for so many enjoyable hours, Peter Handford, Wodonga, Victoria Australia


Q

Dear Mr Cornwell I have read the Grail quest books and have almost finished the Arthur book. Im a great fan of history and I find your books so beautifully fitting within the history as we know it. I also, to my great delight, found that you have written many books. So I can say to you that I really look forward to the coming years for they will be filled with the reading of your books. There is one swedish author that writes in similar ways. His name is Jan Guillou, I don't know if you read his books but... Specially his book about Arn, the hit the stores about three years ago I think. But thank you very much for your great work. It is not often I have found an author that I love reading so much. Sincerely, not since I found Tolkien some 18 years ago. greatful Michael Wermelin, Sweden

A

I don't know Jan Guillou's book, but I'll look for it - thank you.


Q

Read in F.A.Q. that you may write another Rider Sandman novel. I hope you do. Loved the novel for itself. But also have loved the period, which you capture beautifully, ever since grad school days. Thank you for the great pains you take in writing credible and compelling historical fiction. Tom Hinchcliffe


Q

I recently purchased Sharpe's Tiger and Sharpe's Devil audio books read by Sean Bean. It was so wonderful to hear Your story read by His voice (Sean - Sharpe). Do you have any pull/clout to convince Sean to do a few more? (wishful thinking, but one can always hope). Donna

A

No clout at all, but if I see him, I'll ask!


Q

Well I'm hooked now. I started with Sharpe's Trafalgar and had to read Sharpe's Prey right after. Believe it or not I loved the story of Sharpe and Lady Grace. I was very shocked that you killed her off in Sharpe's Prey. I thought it would make a very good story for Sharpe to have an aristocratic wife. I didn't know that you had written Sharpe on pennisula fighting the French before you wrote Sharpe's Trafalgar. Even though I am disappointed, (I don't know why a fighting man can't have a mate that would be equal to him in bravery) I am hooked on the series and am plowing my way through all the books. What a wonderful, straight forward character you've created. Betty

A

I was sorry to see Lady Grace go as well. I guess it's the price I pay (or Sharpe pays) for writing the books out of order. (You haven't met Teresa yet?)


Q

Mr. Cornwell, I want to thank you for all the entertaining and educationally informative books you have written. Going from practically no interest in historical events to becoming an avid consumer of information on European history. I even went out and read a book on both Wellington and Boneparte. You are one of the few authors that I read the books more than once; at least the Sharpe books I did. Thank you again, ...I look forward to your next publication. Henry Stuart
