Apologies if it's against the group's rules but I just wanted to let everyone know I'm selling all of the Bernard Cornwell books in paper back on Ebay to create some shelf room now I've read them all. I have tried to put them all on at the cheapest buy it now price on Ebay, as I bought most of them for very little money myself, I'm not interested in a profit I just want to regain some shelf space! The books are being put up now, so please bare with me if there is something you want but it isn't up there yet - over the next two hours they will all be up there (or sold)

Anyway here is the link of you are interested :-


I'm only really selling them in the UK but if you really want it, send me a message and I'll try and sort out cost price postage abroad.

I've just got interested  in the Uhtred stories   after hearing  Lords of The North   read   No ACTED   by the yummy
Richard Armitage.    I'm now reading  The Last Kingdom.
I'm totally in love with Uhtred

New here, hello! Aug. 10th, 2007 @ 03:01 pm
Hiya, I've just finished the Grail Quest trilogy and am feeling a bit bereft to be honest. 

I really enjoyed the books - Harlequin and Vagabond were picked as a twin pack at Tesco for £5 and even though I was extremely broke, I HAD to get Heretic at full price immediately after. I read it on a car journey in two sittings and at the end, I am left with some thoughts:

Before reading this trilogy, I'd picked up Lords of the North at a dsicount price without realising it was part of a series, and loved it.  I think I might be back and read more of these. 

I've never read a Sharpe - tbh I find Dark Age and Mediaeval history my main interests and think Cornwell really brings these eras to life. 

Any recommendation on what I should read next?

After checking knr_warriors post about lords of the north, confirm that amazon lists "sharpe's fury" for release on october 2nd, 2006

Is it true there's a new book called Lords of the North coming out in June? If so it's been kept very quiet. I know Wikipedia isn't the most reliable source ever, so I thought I'd ask folks who might know.

This community has been a little quiet recently.

I was wondering if anyone caught Sharpe's Challenge over the past two nights on ITV in the UK and what you thought of it. I enjoyed it very much. It had all the elements of the previous tv adaptations. Harper was slightly rounder but Sharpe still looked the same.

I was a little confused about various plot lines which I did not recognise from the book until I realised it was a mix of three of Cornwell's books: Fortress, Tiger and another one.

Anyhow, what did you guys think?

"Sharpe's Challenge"

Updated 2nd October 2005

The following is a statement made by the producers of "Sharpe" last week regarding the brand new film due to begin shooting in India shortly.

"Sean Bean is back as the swashbuckling hero in Sharpe's Challenge, an action packed mini-series to be shot on location in Rajasthan, India. Two years after the Duke of Wellington crushes Napoleon at Waterloo, dispatches from India tell of a local Maharaja, Khande Rao, who is threatening British interests there. Wellington sends Sharpe to investigate on what turns out to be his most dangerous mission to date. When a beautiful general's daughter is kidnapped by the Indian warlord, the tension mounts, leaving Sharpe no option but to pursue the enemy right into its deadly lair. Deep in the heart of enemy territory he also has to keep at bay the beautiful but scheming Regent, Madhuvanthi, who is out to seduce him.

The fate of an Empire and the life of a General's daughter lie in one man's hands...."

Epic in scale, this Sharpe will be shot on location in India with sumptuous fort and palace locations replete with all that exotic India has to offer plus stunning, nail-biting fight sequences featuring thousands of extras.

The filming will be a 2 part mini series for ITV which begins filming on 3rd November up until Christmas. It will also screen on BBC America and be sold around the world by BBC Worldwide.

A spokesman from Picture Palace Productions quotes "When we made the last film, "Sharpe's Waterloo", Sean Bean and ourselves really felt that we had made the last Sharpe. But seven years later we now find ourselves missing our favourite production and Sean is certainly very happy to come back on board. Sean has of course been busy making big Hollywood films since the last Sharpe, but he is very enthusiastic about resuming his role which is very special to him. He told me he can't wait to get started."

We will update this site with further details of casting etc. as we get them, there will be more information and a longer, more detailed synopsis of the story, Sharpe's Challenge in the society's newsletter which will go out the beginning of October!

dissapointed in the blatent hash together of the prequal india books, (william dodd and a vaugley similar scottish colonel feature on the cast lists, along with a sergeant bickerstaff), this seems to be a sharpes gold ish complete ignorance of plotlines in the sharpe books.

But by god, Im still bloody looking forward to it!
