Any Bernard Cornwell fans? Ive read all of the Sharpe novels. I enjoy how hes going back now and filling in new novels in the spaces in the timeline. [I read all of Patrick OBrians Aubrey/Maturin books and enjoyed them a lot. Cornwells Sharpe books are a little bit lighter fare, but still well put together.] I also really enjoyed The Gallows Thief (great look at London in that age and a good mystery) and Ive liked the first two of the Archers Tale Trilogy.
