The next Vespasian, Rome's Lost Son, is at the typesetters as I write and will be out on March 5 next year. Yesterday I did the first 1000 words of the new Magnus short, The Alexandrian Embassy, which I suspect will come out next summer. When I've finished that at the beginning of November I'll start the next Vespasian, The Furies of Rome, which won't be out until 2016. So pleased that you're enjoying the series, Michael, it makes it all worthwhile. Best, Robert.
Robert Cannot begin to tell you how happy i am that your new book is out next week, shame i can read it in two days, read it again a week later then have to wait a year for the next one !! fantastic work !! Joe
Just finished the latest Vespasian, downloaded it on the 5th March but with one thing and another didn't start it until I could read it without interruption. Just an observation either the books have got shorter or they are still as gripping and enthralling as ever, as I no sooner start it that the end seems to sneak up on me. So how long until Furies of Rome?
I'm just about to reach 100,000 words in Furies of Rome, today; so I should have it finished by sometime in May so my guess is it'll come out at the same time of year as the last one, early March. If anything, the books are getting slightly longer!
Looking forward to it, I thoroughly enjoyed Romes Lost, the end crept up on me but I guess that's a byproduct of using an e reader no clue about the number of pages left, as you would with a physical tome. as for the number of pages I have no idea really, it was a great book and for me ended too soon.
Dear Robert, Thank you for a fascinating series. My dad, who died at age 93 a few years back, read what was then all of the Gordianus books and really liked them -- we shared them, if you will. He managed the 'end' of that series, which reached BC 46. As I now read your well imagined tales of Vespasian, Magnus, Caenis et al, I just know he'd have loved this series as much, if not more. Waiting to see how you add your own twists and edge to the Vespasian story. Rose
Thank you for your kind words, Rose. I'm sorry that I took so much time in replying; I've only just noticed your comment. I hope you carry on enjoying the series as we get to the climax in book 9. I shall keep on writing buoyed by your words. Best, Robert.
Hi Peter, I'm sorry, I seem to have been remiss in checking this discussion. The next Vespasian, Rome's Sacred Flame, won't be out until Jan 2018 - I'm on the second to last chapter as we speak. However, Arminius: the Limits of Empire will be out next January. It's a one-off about the life of Arminius as told by his son, Thumelicus, to Vespasian in Rome's Fallen Eagle. I hope you enjoy it. Best, Robert.
