Mr Cornwell, I have been a big fan of your writing for a long time now, and I must admit that my favourite books were the Starbuck Chronicles. I have read that you have sent him on an extented vacation to concentrate on Sharpe and his adventures. You also mentioned that this was in a way the fault (forgive me for that is not the right word to use) of TV. Perhaps you could try and influence those that made the Sharpe tv series to try it out with Starbuck. I realise that poor Nate is not as dashing and daring as Sharpe, (at least in the beginning) but they are fine stories and I for one feel that they would grace that television screen (or the big screen for that matter). Please let me know if you have any inclination as to when Starbuck will fight again. Gareth Jameson
I wish I could give you a time frame Gareth, but I don't want to make any promises I can't keep.
