Tony, does this story, to be issued in Sept., occur around the time of God Of Death, where Casca and some Vikings land in ancient Mexico? Looking forward to reading it.

Andy, nice to hear from you. The time frame for The Viking is 795-830 AD (or thereabouts) when the Vikings suddenly began their attacks on England and Northern Europe. Its all about raid, plunder and bloody fighting with a touch of the legend of The Walker (from Helsfjord) thrown in.

Tony, cannot wait to read The Viking! Just ordered Casca 46. Had some trouble logging into the new web site as it would not take my old password. Finally got it all straightened out and order Casca 46. Look forward to reading it! Thanks!

Tony:

Two things……is there info out there that puts all the Casca series in historical chronological order??

Second: I would love to see Casca 49 and 50 (or sooner). The Zulu war of 1879. Isandlwana and Rorke’s drift. Obviously Casca in both. He could be a Boer or a British soldier. It would be nice to see you do some back to back novels again. Much like you did in #26 Johnny Reb and #27 The Confederate. As you can see……I have been following you since you restarted Casca.
Anyway continue the good work!

Brian, as per my email to you, check out my timeline on the website. I may to a Rorke’s Drift in the future – the sequel to Cavalryman, of course, seeing that the two battles are 3 years apart.

Andy, I was thinking of you yesterday when I glanced through the reviews of the books and saw a few of yours – I thought the Viking would be top of your September shopping list.

Tony, I just loaded my review of The Viking onto Amazon’s pages for the Kindle and paperback versions of the book. Great book! Lot’s of action. For some reason, the Kindle and paperback versions of this and some other Cascas are considered two separate books, and writing a review for one version does not automatically carry over to the other version. I think my review is the only one that’s on both versions. Instead of about 5 reviews for each version, there could be 10 reviews for each version if each review was automatically carried over to the other version.

In the story, there is a mention that Casca was coming off time spent fighting in Charlemagne’s wars for empire. Since most people know somewhat of Charlemagne, I’d suggest that there should be a story about Charlemagne’s grandfather, Charles “The Hammer” Martel, and his effort to unite Gaul and defend it against the Spanish Moors. The Casca Timeline does state that Casca did spend time with Martel.

Any tease on what the next sword-era Casca will be about?

Andy, I honestly do not know what Amazon does half the time. I have to constantly battle to keep going in the face of numerous efforts at sabotage. The latest thing Amazon did (after I heavily criticised them in a feedback form) was to remove all my books from my author page. I had to reload them one after the other. I utterly hate Amazon but its something I don’t think I can do without at present, although I make nothing on a sale thanks to their vile fees that wipe out any profit I make. Thankfully I have little sales through Amazon.

All I do is to put up both paperback and ebook versions; sometimes they combine and other times they don’t. Don’t ask me as I’m IT illiterate. Another odd thing was that someone did a 5-star review of Sword of the Brotherhood on 25 August but it only appeared today. Amazon also refused a review of one of my non-Casca books on the grounds it was biased, but all reviews are biased. They also allowed another but 4 weeks later suddenly and arbitrarily removed it without as much as an explanation and there was nothing contentious in it at all. Amazon are pure *******.

There is a mention of Charles Martel yes, and maybe in the future I shall do a story. Anyway, Casca 49 is going to be called The Lombard and its the sequel to The Avenger.

Thanks for the review, much appreciated.
