HISTORICAL NOVELISTS BY SMOKE

Nicely done! And as a bonus, I discovered a novelist whose work I want to read.

I did pretty well at this excellent puzzle, but i have to confess it was all down to Googling. I know less than nothing about the subject. I felt the need to confess.

I knew most of the authors......one very well because Smoke was the one that put me on to the novels that I came to love. Thanks again!

My pleasure, Marsha, it's my favorite genre and I love it when I can turn someone new onto something good!

Thank you for saying so, that made my day!

Loved this! I knew one author very well, but not the others and I still did pretty well for me. Good job!

I knew one author very well because my mum read all his books and I remembered a second one because of a TV series starring...... I can't give the name I could give away an extra clue. Good WP.

Learned about several authors I had never heard of and got some ideas for late summer reading to boot. Great puzzle!

Very enjoyable! I do think I had a word I've never had in a WP before! (Not obscure in any way, just different from before)

Great puzzle.
I really enjoyed it, except those pesky 2-letter words (on/of) got me AGAIN!!

Thanks.

I really enjoyed this WP about one of my favorite subjects. I thought the phrases were interesting and well-constructed -- whets your appetite for reading the books! Thanks for a lot of fun!

I've read one of the authors books and loved them, heard of one of the others, and thoroughly enjoyed the quiz, thanks to google!

Now that it is off-grid, though I may have missed it in the past, I don't think I had ever seen the word "hefty" in a WP before.

I only knew one of the authors but the puzzle was still written in a way that it was solved without too much head scratching. Now if someone could just write one where I can't add extra letters or leave out words....

Thought maybe you'd got "egyptologist" Jank.

Hefty seemed an apt word to describe a Rutherfurd novel.

Here's the whole bunch:

author of the thorn birds and a series called masters of rome (Colleen McCullough)
plots feature human advancements during the last glacial period (Jean M. Auel)
egyptologist wrote several fictional series set in the nile valley (Christian Jacq)
wrote novels of classical greece and a trilogy on alexander the great (Mary Renault)
has several series set in exciting periods of britains history (Bernard Cornwell)
writes hefty epics of england unfolding over many centuries (Edward Rutherfurd)
scotland time travel loves and wars figure in her outlander series (Diana Gabaldon)
her lymond chronicles cut a swath through the sixteenth century (Dorothy Dunnett)
two of his american history series were adapted for television (John Jakes)
his seafaring series highlights close friendship between men (Patrick O'Brian)

I'm interested who has read which ones.

Thanks for all the nice comments, you guys really made it a lot of fun.
