First of all I want to wish you and your family a happy new year.
Second off this History talk on Patrick Cleburne and his proposal to free the Slaves in the South and the reaction it generated (basically cost him a Promotion) I thought you might find of interest to watch Regards https://www.c-span.org/video/?318492-4/general-patrick-cleburne&event=318492&playEvent
I would love to see the Starbuck chronicles continued. It is one of my favorites.
Hi Just a comment on the question from Michael dated 7 December 2022. I have just been re-reading with enjoyment the Last Kingdom series and to answer his question I can identify the mention of the amulets as being 38 hung from the hem of his mail coat as he walks towards Ludd Gate and a couple of pages later asks Sihtric his servant at that time to pick up the amulet of the warrior with the raven wing helmet who died well. All in the part midway through Sword Song where they capture London from the Danes. He should now be sure of his pint.
I've enjoyed so many of your books that I've lost count!
I downloaded Wildtrack onto my Kindle and discovered something really spooky:- I share the same name as your hero, Nick....
I am a Falklands Veteran - but not a VC - although I did receive the task Force Commander's Falklands Commendation!
Injured, I underwent spinal surgery and a double osteotomy of the right knee - and both still give me a certain amount of discomfort.
After the Falklands War, I bought, rebuilt and sailed a classic wooden boat - mahogany on oak frames....similar to Sycorax.
Greatly enjoying Wildtrack - and wishing you a happy and healthy New Year.
Hope all is well.
Thinking Uhtred must have multiple Grandchildren who can carry on Last Kingdom Series?
Instead of the "traditional" Son of Series, you could write Grandson of Uhtred and continue The Last Kingdom Series.
Your books are awesome!
I just finished reading Fools and Mortals. I love your books and have read most of them. This one made me cry in a good way. For that I thank you, and for your hutzpah in tackling Shakespeare. Even though we have never met and in all probability never will, I do think of you as a friend. Such is the power of the preforming arts.
In regards to Nelson actions at Naples, it was a bit more than simply seducing Emma Hamilton. There is a book on the subject that is well researched that you might find of interest https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nelson-Naples-Revolution-Retribution-1799/dp/144567937X
Hello, I'm a big fan of yours, I have all the books edited and translated into Portuguese/BR, and I would like to express my gratitude for you passing all the history and construction of England through Uhtred. Greetings and good health.

I empathize with your dental woes.
Every time I enter my dentists office, they burst into rousing choruses of "Crown Him with Many Crowns."
Thank you! That made me laugh out loud!
Dear Mr. Cornwell,
thank you, thank you, and thank you (!) for the many hours of reading pleasure you've give me! I've read all the Sharpe books, the Grail Quest series, the Sailing books, the Starbuck books, and have just begun to read The Winter King (series). How exciting to be so entertained by your remarkable characters, extremely descriptive writing, and historical events! I've recommended your books to many others. Again, thank you , and I hope you have a very Merry Holiday Season!
