Your Questions

Q

Have read most, if not all, of your books with great enjoyment and own copies of most! I have just re-read Gallows Thief which leaves me with a question! Have you any plans for further book(s) with Rider Sandman? Thanks for many hours of reading pleasure. Regards, Peter

A

I think another Sandman book is a good possiblity.


Q

Ok, I just love to get involved into the cosmic and mind spinning world of books, thus I declare you the best writer I have ever had the great fortune to meet. Your character descriptions and world boundries are just so original not to mention the way that your storyline is concerned! Anywho, just wondering if you where going to make a movie of The Grail Quest? Or at least something interactive, e.g. a video game? Lots of profit can be made with your wonderful ideas. So yeh, keep up the good work!!! ...Steve

A

Thanks for those kind words Steve. No plans at the moment for a Grail Quest movie (or video game), but who knows? Maybe some day.


Q

Since you seem to cover so much of Britain's history and myth, have you considered a Robin Hood story? I know it's a character that has received a lot of attention in both book and film (a certain Robin with an American accent comes to mind from the early 90s), but so had King Arthur before you tackled him. Just a thought. Evan Shelton

A

I have considered it, perhaps some day?


Q

Hey, I am just a 16 year old Canadian kid who has just read your Warlord Chronicles. I found, and you probably have heard it before, that they are great works of the re-telling of the story of Arthur. I was just wondering if you have ever thought about putting these books on the big screens of the movies, like the Lord of the Rings. I just believe if done well in the form of 3 separate movies for each book in the Warlord Chronicles. Well I just wanted to know if you had even thought about making it into a movie. bye Todd Delaney

A

I'd actually love to see the Warlord Chronicles turned into film, but alas I'm not a filmmaker so it's up to someone else to do it and I'm afraid it would be much too expensive so I don't suppose it will ever get done. It is a nice thought though! And I do appreciate your support.


Q

Mr. Cornwell, What do you plan on writing about next? Mabye more Dark Ages material or pre- Roman Britian material? Thanks for your time, Dick Mock

A

The next book, to be published in the UK this coming October, will be called The Last Kingdom, and is set in the 9th century. For more detail and a chance to read the first chapter, click on the What's Coming link.


Q

I enjoyed The Grail Quest series very much. It had been a couple of years since I read through a book from cover to cover(never found the time). I read the first in the series in April of last year and found I was making the time to complete it, thoroughly enjoyable..thank you. I have since read the complete series as well as the Sharpe series to Havoc (which I am currently finishing). Great stories. Will there be anymore stories featuring Thomas of Hookton? I found those to be as enjoyable, if not slightly more so, than Sharpe. Thank you for the great stories. As well, any word on if the other Sharpe stories will be made into "Made for TV" movies? The Grail Quest would be enjoyable as such as well. Finally, what is next after Sharpe's Escape? Michael Arthur

A

There won't be another Thomas of Hookton book any time soon - perhaps in the future? And no word on another Sharpe film. My next book will be set in the 9th century during the time of Alfred the Great.


Q

Dear Mr Cornwell, I just want to start off by saying that since I picked up your books I have been reading non stop for 3 years now. I was never really good when it came to reading but once I picked up your Sharpe series, granted I saw the movies first, I couldn't put them down. Now I read a book every two days. I have read everything you have written, and enjoyed them all. Most of all I loved the Arthur tales and Thomas of Hookton. I just wanted to say Thanks for all your hard work in writing these. Also, do you have any plans for future books in either Starbuck or the Grail Quest? Thanks for your time. Kevin Roselle

A

There won't be either a Starbuck or Thomas of Hookton book this year (and maybe not next year either), but possibly in the not-too-distant future.


Q

dear Mr Cornwell, the first book I ever read was the Winter King. I subsequently read all your books I know that you have published except the Sharpe series. I must admit the tv programme put me off more than any other thing, but I'm sure that because a lot of your work is aimed through these I shall get through them soon and just as quickly as your others. I never got into books, you are the one that has truly converted me when I was 18. I've visited your website and agree with you that the Arthur chronicles are my favourites as well, although I loved the Starbuck ones. Would you perhaps suggest a similiar author (in the same area) to yourself as in the future I would be interested to know of future books that might be good. My dad got me into you and he's currently reading the Arthur books (AGAIN)! A film would be a brilliant idea, and far better than Lord of the Rings though I liked it. Have you thought of asking Roman Ibramivich (chelsea chairman) for funding (send him a copy of the series. haha- just a thought!) keep up the good work I think you're brill. best wishes Iain

A

Thanks for your message Iain. Have you had a chance to take a look at the Reading Club page of this website? You may find books there you would enjoy. Also check out the Suggestions for Further Reading links found on the book pages.


Q

Dear Sir thank you for answering my first e-mail. I only hope you will answer this one! Me and my father who both love the character of "Obadiah bloody Hakeswill" and was hoping that there would be a series of books just about him? Brett

A

A series for Obadiah? Interesting thought - but not in my plans for the immediate future.


Q

Mr. Cornwell, Will Sharpe ever march in America? I realize that it would be near impossible to fit it into his time line, but I only say so since it seems that sooner or later Sharpe may run out of battles in Europe. Or, could it be possible that Sharpe could be in two places at the same time? It would not matter to me, I'd still buy, read, and enjoy. Sharpe's Gold was the first book I really ever read for enjoyment as a kid, and I've been following ever since. In a way, reading Sharpe helped me to find myself growing up. I discovered that soldiering was for me and that Sharpe was a good person to guide me. I couldn't have done it without him. And I Thank you. LT LeClair

A

Sharpe makes a promise never to fight in America (in Sharpe's Siege I believe) so it is unlikely to happen.
