Q

Mr Cornwell, thank goodness I have found your e mail address. I have read all the Sharpe books , but now I have found out due to this web site that I have 4 more to read ( thanks). With your unique way with words I get totally immersed in the action. I was born in Bosham Sussex in 1938 and spent my childhood in Bosham harbour. Your vivid description of the mud, tides, smell, reeds, was bang on, infact looking back it's lucky some of us boys were not drowned . I am now reading your terrific Grail series , well done Mr Cornwell and thank you for countless hours of great entertainment. Barry Parker

Thank you!


Q

Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed Vagabond. It was fantastic as I live in Durham city, with a view of the cathedral and could picture the scene. Did you visit Durham whilst writing the book? Andrew Cowie

A

I did - twice in fact because it's one of my favourite places. I also went up to Neville's Cross to get the lie of the land, but as it's now all housing that was a bit tricky.


Q

Dear Sir, I would just like to comment on how much I have enjoyed the stories in your books, particularily Sharpe's Tiger and, my favorites, the Starbuck Chronicles. I have noticed how you have said that you have left Nathaniel Starbuck on a vaction, and I think that many fans of the chronicles will say it's time for another, as Nate has been on vacation since 2001 (I think). It would be much appreciated if you would please write another. Thank you for you time. Andrea


Q

Mr Cornwell, Thank you for the Warlord series. I have read them over & over. Also I have the audio tapes, beautifully read & brought to life by Tim Pygot Smith. I am sure I have read about the series being filmed. Can you tell me if this is true and what is the timescale. Michael Brooks

A

No, sorry, there is no Arthur film based on my books - but I am glad to know how much you have enjoyed the books. Thanks for writing.


Q

Mr. Cornwell, I suppose I've read a few thousand books, but never felt sufficiently moved to write a note to any of their authors. The exception is C.S. Forester, who was dead before I ever started reading his books and so denied me the opportunity to thank him for creating Horatio Hornblower. In any event, I am reading the Sharpe novels now and wanted you to know that I am enjoying them in the same way I enjoyed Hornblower the first time around. A great character, wonderfully rendered. Thank you. Fred Jacobs

A

Thanks! I'm glad I'm still around to get your message!


Q

Dear Mr. Cornwell, I very much enjoyed your book "Gallow's Thief." I hope that you continue the characters in a series. Sincerely, B. Mayberry


Q

My first book I read of yours was Stonehenge. Since then I have read every book, but NOT one Sharpe novel. That must be a first for a BC reader. The reason I have never started reading "Sharpe" is the fact that there are so many, and Sean Bean would be forever in my head as the lead role. Anyway, I am little bit pissed on Jack Daniels and would like to say thanks for bringing me back to reading. Rgds Wayne


Q

Damn you, you prolific bastard! I love your books. I've read the Arthurian stuff, the Archer stuff, and about half the Sharpe stuff. I have a job and a girlfriend and I hope I can keep both and still enjoy your work. I start a Sharpe with dinner and finish it about midnight. So far Derfel is my favorite character. Please keep up the work. You do it so well. If you make it to Seattle, I'll try to come out and join the queue. thanks, Jon


Q

You have taken me into the world of Thomas, a very likeable character if not a times naive, the two Grail Quest books I have read have made me hungry for the third. You are an outstanding storyteller. Donna Cameron

A

Thank you. I hope you will enjoy Heretic.
