Dear Mr Cornwell, Please don't stop writing about Thomas of Hookton, you are the only writer I know that writes decent Historical books and I am Desperate to read Poitiers. I Beg you to reconsider stopping this book. I was really excited about your new book so Please continue writing it. I know this message is pathetic but you are the only Historical writer I like. Please finish the book. Alexander Fredrick Verrall
Hi Mr Cornwell. Just finished reading the 3rd book in The Grail Quest series. A brilliant book. Thank you for writing it. But what bothers me is that Thomas' tales are over. Please tell me you have not finished with Thomas as he is a great character in a fantastic time of our history. Cheers Trev.
Dear Mr. Cornwell. Please, please, PLEASE reconsider your regretable decision to scrap the fourth Thomas of Hookton novel. I don't think his character is depleted at all, and I would wager that the vast majority of your fans would side with me on this. We haven't complained about twenty Sharpe novels, have we? Having two of the three major battles of the Hundred Years War (Crecy and Poitiers) only ten years apart just begs for Thomas to be at both. Even if the end of the Grail quest was an ending for Thomas, it could be a new beginning as well, just as the end of the Indian trilogy was not the end of Sharpe's career. Anyway, I am extremely upset by your decision, and I really hope you will give it some more consideration. Alan Kempner
I have put that book aside for now and am working on something else, but I may go back to it in the future.
