Julian Stockwin has announced that he'll once again be adding two (2) novels to his Thomas Kydd series in 2018.
The Iberian Flame(book 20, if you've lost count) will be released in June 2018 and a second novel (book 21), as yet untitled will be released in late Fall 2018.

I finished The Iberian Flame this morning (audiobook)  as I crested Artillery Hill on my morning walk and reviewed it in my mind as I descended the 'lee' side of the hill.

While I realize that the timeline of the 'post Nelson navy' and the duties that come with 'advanced career' lessen the likelihood of 'naval action at sea', it is still 'the duff' that brings expectation to the meal as it does to our reading of 'good HNF'.

I found The Iberian Flame to be well researched fiction based on historical events (both political and military).  However, I also found it 'lacking in duff'.

I was a little confused. On page 103 it listed Poulden as coxswain in the captain's barge. Shouldn't it be Halgren at this point?
