Mike P said:One of the biggest problems with the TV adaption of the Sharpe novels was that they never had the money for enough extras to make the big battles believable.
I've just started rereading Bernard Cornwell Arthurian trilogy (The Winter King-The Enermy of God-Excaliber). In my opinion the best thing he's ever written.
Origin is the title you're looking for. Since then he's done Evolution (very patchy -in fact you could say it goes in fits and starts. That was supposed to be a punctuated equilibrium gag. I'll fetch my coat...) and has a new one out now called Coalescent, part of a trilogy called Destiny's Children. The sequel to Coalescent is due out on Sept. 2nd, and is to be called Exultant.River_Styx said:Stephen Baxter's Manifold series.
I've read Time and have just started on Space. There's a third one now too but I can't remember it's title.
