Noticed you liked The Sound and the Fury, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also southern, a bit violent, and a bit dark :) I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter)in case you'd like to read more about the novel before you commit:


Sounds excellent. He seems to also do the same thing with the character Uhtred in the Saxon Chronicles, and Uhtred's relationship to King Alfred.

So far, the Grail Quest is my favorite of Cornwell's. But I've heard -- as you mentioned -- from many people that his Arthurian novels are his best. What did you like best about them? What makes them so compelling? That series is a must on my Too Be Read pile.

As for Martin, I think many -- including myself -- share your concern. Let's hope he does not keep going and going and never finish before he passes on like Jordan. I know he's said ASOIF will only be seven books, but I'm wondering how he plans to wrap everything up; he has so many story lines going on.

Always nice to find other fans of Cornwell and Martin. I'm currently finishing up the Saxon Chronicles. Still have Lords of the North and Sword Song to read. What's your favorite series by Cornwell? I also still have A Feast for Crows left to read before Dance with Dragons comes out. How did you like Feast for Crows compared to the other three?
