You are a master of the novelated history, and after having devoured (and strongly recommneded) Sarum, Russka, London, and The Forest, I will certainly purchase Dublin.
One of your readers suggested Scotland as your next topic. I agree, but wonder if it may not be better to tackle The Vikings first, and then Scotland.
Thank you for your gift as a historian and novelist, and for your attention.

Thank you Debora for clearing up my confusion. After finishing the Dublin saga, I too will await his next book.

The Princes of Ireland: The Dublin Saga (hp & pb-US), Dublin: Foundation (hb-UK) and Dublin (pb-UK) are all the same book. The first part of the history of Dublin.
Now, where's the next part? And I hope he someday does both Scotland and Wales.

I am confused. I have in my hand the Rutherfurd book, Dublin:Foundation which was bought in the UK. However, in the USA we can purchase his book, The Princes of Ireland: The Dublin Saga.
Are they the same?

I have read all the authors besides Rutherford that you mention, but there is one Pargeter book I am not sure a lottle of people know about. I discovered it in a dusty old used books shop: The Heaven Tree Trilogy. It is stupendous! Also Katherine by Anya Seton. A historical novel about a true love story whose main protagonists, were thwarted by Anne Boleyn.

Must say once you read his work, you will hungrily devour the rest of his works.
Sharon Pennman & Edith Pareter & Nigel Tranter, who also write fictional history the same way.

I read with great enjoyment the Dublin book which finishes at the Reformation, and I am eagerly awaiting what I believe will be the conclusion of the story of that fascinating city.

I started with The Forest and loved it so much I went on to the others. The only one I started and did not finish was London. Just recently I finsihed the Princes of Ireland and loved it, and now I am reading Russka and I am totally absorbed! As much as I love the history of Britain and have read so much about England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, it has been good to read about Russia. Now I want to learn about Finland. I would love Rutherford to tackle that country.
Sharon Penman is another of my favorites and have read just about everything she has written. I am not a short story person, so I have avoided those books.

When is Edward Rutherfurd's follow-up book to The Princes of Ireland, The Dublin Saga, due to be published? I know his books are massive undertakings, but I am always anxious for the next one, especially this one since it is a continuation of The Princes of Ireland.
