“Historical fiction is a tricky beast. As a writer you have to keep your history in proper shape while combining it with a narrative that someone actually wants to read. Score two out of two for Julian Stockwin.”

  1. Awesome Kydd series, was introduced by an elderly neighbor having a clear out of several books, but not the first volume, once I read that from the library I have been hooked and working my through them all.

  2. Julian, I’ve read all the Kydd series and have just started on ‘The Silk Tree’, where I notice ‘The Crakys of War’ announced…
    However I don’t see any evidence anywhere of it actually being published. Is it under another title, or…?

    Looking forward to the next instalment of Kidd and the next GameChanger – and thank you for your gorgeous prose and riveting plot lines!

    Best regards, Tony.

  3. I took a pause when I first read this paragraph, and came back to it several times before completing this marvelous story. This is the kind of writing that keeps readers hooked to reading, searching for another gem such as this. Marvelous:

    “There never was a definite time. Never an exact defining instant at which England finally vanished. One moment the far line of the land was there, only just, and the next time Kydd remembered to look, there was nothing but a horizon innocent of anything but the rimming seascape. It should have been a special moment, leaving his native country astern, but he only felt a curious separation, one in which England carried on with its own cares, duties and pleasures down one line of existence, while Kydd and watery world went another.”

  4. Mr Bray – thank you indeed for your kind words about my latest Kydd title. It always gives me special pleasure to hear from Old Salts! Best wishes, Julian Stockwin

  5. Sir,

    I’ve just finished Tyger and it is bittersweet: knowing the adventure continues, but having to wait until next October.

    I can only describe your latest edition to Tom Cutlass’ adventure a complete triumph.

    Your transition from L’Aurore to Tyger with the introduction of so many new characters was seamless, however nice to see old Toby Stirk still rattlin’ around.

    Given I am a Bray myself, quite a big fellow with a dark complexion and an ex-navalman too, I could not help but warm immediately to Tyger’s new first.

    I thank you sir and eagerly await the next instalment, passing the time by going back over Tom’s adventures past.

    Warmest regards,
    Mr Bray
