Re: [SCA-Archery] The Archer's Tale
- Thank you M'Lord for the website! I must admit that I have fell in love with Cornwell's writting. I will have to check out the Warlord Chronicle and I also want to check out his Nathaniel Starbuck Chronicles.

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

Yes this is a really good book. It's part of a series that he's
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,
