Interview with Bernard Cornwell

Interview with Bernard Cornwell

The profile of his writing has been raised most recently by the television adaptation of The Last Kingdom and its scandalously irreligious hero Uhtred.

Interview with Nicholas Eames

Interview with Nicholas Eames 

Those who follow my reviews over on Booknest may already know that I found “Kings of the Wyld” one of the greatest debuts I’ve ever read. I even took a gamble and declared it debut of the year. Since I have the joy to call Nicholas a friend (at least as far as a Facebook […]
