QUARTERDECK by Julian Stockwin
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 1, 2005

"Stockwin (Mutiny, 2004, etc.), a career navy man, writes of the nautical life with vivid authority. Is the Kydd series the equal of Patrick O'Brian's much praised Aubrey/Maturin series? Not quite, but close."
Continuing the rousing adventures of Thomas Kydd, now an officer in the British Royal Navy, as he battles ships at sea, snobbery at home and the sense that he has serious personal shortcoming. Read full book review >
KYDD by Julian Stockwin
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 1, 2001

"An engaging sea yarn with more verisimilitude, if less romance, than O'Brian readers expect."
Comparisons to Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin saga are inevitable, but Stockwin's debut, the first in a planned naval series covering approximately the same era, focuses on the common seamen rather than on the officers. No musical duets in the captain's chambers here. Read full book review >

Brisk action on the high seas as Thomas Kydd (Kydd, 2001) makes the second of what bids fair to be a series of profitable voyages. Read full book review >
