Thanks for letting me spent some time with Uhtred. It was great fun and I loved every minute. Best regards, Tom Labus

Hello, Bernard Cornwell, just wanted to let you know I'm reading and so enjoying your novel, Agincourt. The information interwoven into the narrative, about archers and long bows, how the battle was fought, etc. etc. is just so fascinating. I love the feeling of being connected with all those who have gone before us... and your book does a terrific job of giving that feeling. Thank you. Sincerely, Lynn Evans Torrance, California


Q

Dear Sir, I've just finished reading a factual book by Nathaniel Philbrick entitled "Mayflower A Voyage to War." It is very interesting but it reminded me a bit of your trilogies. I don't think it is a period you have written about but if you are ever stuck for ideas I am sure you could make a brilliant series out of the Native Indians plight - particularly the character of Annawon who seems to be present from the moment the Pilgrim's arrive, right throughout King Philip's War. I would try and write it myself but I do not have the skill and I'm sure you could do it better! I realise this is a strange e-mail so apologies for that but after reading the book I felt it was such a good story and you could really do it justice. Many thanks Rhys Benjamin

As I am from Caerleon in South Wales, the Arthur legend is very important to us in this area and your accurate cultural portrayal of Brythonic Celts adds weight to your writing. Thank you for this.

Hello, Mr. Cornwell! I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your novels. You are a truly great writer. I can't tell you how important your books have been to me - the Sharpe books and the Saxon stories especially - and as a newly minted librarian, I look forward to introducing many new readers to your work. Thank you for being awesome. All the best!

Just finished reading all four of the Starbuck Chronicles and you have brought the American Civil War to life for me. I,m at present recreating all the major battles of the ACW in a board game format and you have inspired me to triple my efforts. Thanks for the books... More please. Martin Brierley


Q

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your work! I am currently reading the Sharpe books but have also read most of the Saxon tales and the Grail Quest series. I have a passion for history, especially Medieval England. Having only been able to visit England twice & prior to reading your books, I really want to make another trip across the pond and see some of the places you have written about in your books. You certainly have an incredible grasp of the warrior mindset which is something few authors seem to fully understand. Please keep up the good work! It's great stuff! Brett Swigert


Q

The Saxon stories are great and I think Uhtred is one of the best dudes ever. Please keep writing about him the books are awesome.

Mr. Cornwell, First it is marvellous that you take the time to correspond with your fans. One of the great memories of my life was when on my first trip to the UK, on a cold and foggy spring morning, I first saw Bamburgh Castle rising up on its perch. What a wonderful site and location. I have to admit to reading all of your books and owning DVD's of all the Sharpe series. They certainly were fortunate in their casting from Sean Bean, to Pete Postlethwaite and even a young Daniel Craig. I have to state that you are my favourite, living author of fiction. Although you are not quite perfect, for my money Starbuck is nowhere near as interesting as Lassan and his chronicles are your weakest series. So purely for selfish reasons, I implore you. Please complete Uhtred's saga before you write any other books. Of all your characters Uhtred is the most fascinating. Sharpe is still the original but his backstory is not as complex, nor is he as self-aware as Uhtred. Thank you for many hours of enjoyment and I hope that you are able to bring us many more.
