I've just finished the fifth Nathaniel Drinkwater omnibus and my remarks apply to the whole fourteen novels so my approbation of the subsequent four omnibuses (should that perhaps be omnibi?) can be taken as read. I think these stories are splendid, swahbuckled to the Nth degree, filled with finely drawn characters, exciting incident and nautical know how.
To try and give you a little focus as to how my tastes may or may not parallel your own I will not declaim on the merits or otherwise of the author but will name some authors whose work I have also enjoyed. For sea stories I have enjoyed all of Julian Stockwin's Kydd novels, lapped up all of James Nelson's offerings, but found, as yet,(and this might just be me) O'Brien and Forester to be a bit stodgy. I am not really a big sea story fan, Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, Wilbur Smith, Conn Iggulden, Harlan coben (non Myron B.) being more my cup of tea. However, if, in any of the above, you have seen mention of authors you yourself like i would urge you to give Mr. Woodman a try
