      I saw Vagabond and was going to get it intill I saw a litte blurp on the Cover "From the Auther of The Archer's Tale". I asked the store to order me a copy in hardback (I had a feeling it was going to make the rounds here in DragonsSpine) and have been reading all week at work. I must admit I had to look up what a Yale was on the internet and have learned a lot of history from the book. anyway I can't wait to start Vagabond this weekend.

      This is a awesome book and the next chapter in the
      story is "Vagabond" I think. It is out in hardback now
      and hopefull paperback soon.

        This is an excellent peice of hisorical fiction by Bernard Cornwell. Dont
        forget the next book in the series "Vagabond".

        According to Cornwell there are at least two more books to come in the series.

        Go to the authors site at http://www.bernardcornwell.net/

        This Archers Tale series is known as "The Grail Quest" series. In Europe the
        Archers Tales was published under the title "Harlequin" but US publishers
        feared that name would cause it to be mistaken for a romance novel.

        Although not archer related, another very good SCA period set of books from
        Cornwell is the "Warlord Chronicles" or "The Arthur Books". This three
        volume series comprised of "The Winter King", "Enemy of God", and "Excalibur"
        explores the myth of Arthur in post-Roman Britain. It is the most
        entertaing, educational, and entertaining telling of Arthur that I have yet
        to read.

        Regards,

          written and they are all available in paperback. I know, cause I have
          two of them. He credits Hardy's "Longbow" for many of his references
          among other very scholarly sources. He did his homework. Good story,
          too.
