The next Novel should be a new courteny story which follows up golden fox and takes us through to today, Or a Balantyne Novel with a return to Zimbabwe (ne. Rhodesia) and a view into the tradgedy that Mugabee and his thugs have made of it.

Kia ora John, Youve made me go and pull Sunbird off the shelf as I hadnt read it again for a while, I do love this story , The two halves, Now and then so to speak, I shall reread it when I finish this da vinci code. Yes the little titbits about this Quest have got my mind racing, I wonder could it be to do with that forgotten child? Or our fav warlock on the loose again?
Yes It would be nice to see some of the other story lines sequelled.

Just finished Sunbird as Ive been putting this one off. Ive heard it was special and wasnt disappointed- parallels between this and River God/ Seventh scroll but the whole disappearing civilisation thing was just mind blowing and left me thinking for days after. The Quest- another Taita novel seems to be next- looking forward to it as these ones add more mystery to the whole experience.

Kate you are correct the child from this pregnancy is not mentioned in subsequent novels on the Courtneys. I have all the novels and can find no mention.

I own and have read all of WS's novels.
I have today completed Eye Of The Tiger for about the tenth time. I would really enjoy a sequel to this novel. I cannot find a site to communicate this message to WS directly.
I find that WS's later books spend a lot of time developing the characters and the plot but then WS seems in a hurry to finish the story.

It pains me to say i agree, I liked TOTS, but it was a bit weak.

Just finished reading Triumph of the sun. Altho I enjoyed it I found it a bit dif from his previous. After all the efforts to save Karthoum it just fell leaving the characters to split up and head in different directions, seemingly without purpose. the final fight between Penrod and the Emir- a couple of pages- seemed an anti climax after half the book building up to its enivitability. Ryder and Penrod didnt have much depth, and i think Rebecca had the most in terms of characterisation (and suffered for it). Just felt the build up didnt lead to much but the usual gore and action scenes were worth it overall. Hmmm...
