    I've edited this page, as Bernard Cornwell has indicated that the Saxon Stories are not a trilogy, but will be a series of perhaps 7 or 8 books. On his website, it now states that the release date for Lords of the North in the USA is Jan 2007. In the beginning of the article, it mentions Uhtred as being "very similar to Dervel Cadarn." Now, I like Uhtred as much as the next man, Uhtred is really a great guy. But lets face it, he's waaay more an "a-hole" than Dervel. Someone ought to reword that passage.~Robertarans Lee says - I'm English and the beauty of living over here allows us to buy Bernard Cornwell books such as Lords of the North much earlier than you can get in the States. I've read it and can't wait for the next in the series. I am a massive fan of the afore said author and have read all the Warlord novels, Grail Quest novels and most of the Sharpe novels. Stonehenge is also an excellent read but I must admit that after reading Lords Of The North it does leave one a bit in...

    I revamped the page layout and such: - Added content box- Reference Section- Trivia Section- Infobox- Information about Book 4 in series- Minor changes in the text Overall i think it looks a lot better, more professional and easier to naviagate thank you 82.40.237.7514:39, 13 June 2007 (UTC) In the US the Saxon Stories are listed as the Saxon Tales, but Cornwell list them as the Saxon Stories on his own web site. Should that bit of information be mentioned? It took me a bit to find this reference. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.56.55.119 (talk) 10:53, 18 November 2008 (UTC) Deleted the sentance claiming the series is unique for being written the the first person; it's not, the Warlord Chronicles (Dervel) are too.86.130.218.168 (talk) 19:13, 1 March 2010 (UTC)Joe

    I added a new section, Idea for the series, based on an interview Cornwell with with Emerson College in Boston. The list of novels is moved to its own section, Bibliography of the series. The Empty Throne has been published in the UK, so Pagan Lord is no longer the latest. The lead is divided in two paragraphs, one for Uhtred and one for the history behind his story. --Prairieplant (talk) 08:23, 9 June 2014 (UTC) 1. As far as I can tell The Empty Throne won't be published in the UK until October, and later in the US in January. Here's a link to it on Amazon.co.uk dated "23 Oct 2014", and on Amazon.com dated "January 6, 2015".--Brianann MacAmhlaidh (talk) 21:54, 9 June 2014 (UTC) 1. Correct, verb tenses are fixed in the article now, and a new heading for the yet to be published but titled novel is in the Bibliography. --Prairieplant (talk) 22:45, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

    Per the recent AFD, I'm proposing a merge of The Empty Throne into this article. The merge will be pretty light, since none of the material in the source article is referenced. With no objections, I plan to complete the merge before 12 September 2014 -- Mikeblas (talk) 15:26, 6 September 2014 (UTC) 1. That makes no sense to me. When the book is released in October, its plot summary will be written, the reviews collected, and the article will have references and substance. Within a few weeks or two months, The Empty Throne will be needed again as its own article. It seems too late to delete this -- back in April, 6 months before publication, that would be a different question. Now it is September, too close to have the work re-done. On that basis, I object to deleting Empty Throne and merging it into the series article. --Prairieplant (talk) 19:06, 6 September 2014 (UTC) --Prairieplant (talk) 19:27, 6 September 2014 (UTC) 2.

    Surely we can't have the article title being different from the name of the series used in the opening sentence? Which should it be? Peteinterpol (talk) 22:24, 13 November 2015 (UTC) For now it is the Saxon Stories. The reviewers still call it the Saxon Tales. The changes to Warrior Chronicles have been reverted. Settle this here first, not random changes in parts of the text, as a better way to go. --Prairieplant (talk) 09:04, 15 November 2015 (UTC) 1. "name of the series" - the books are a canonical source, is that to which you refer? The two titles have been used almost interchangably since inception. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk)14:45, 16 November 2015 (UTC) 2. I am not sure what a canonical source is. The topic is the title of the series to use in this article, given the many different titles given to the series. If they are interchangeable, will it suffice to keep the article titled as it is, with a paragraph, cited, explaining the two different names in frequent use sin...

    How was it received by the public ? By critics, book reviewers ? Are those "best-sellers" ? How popular are they ? --Jerome Potts (talk) 19:01, 29 May 2016 (UTC) 1. Jerome Charles Potts the articles about each novel in this series do not include a section on Reviews until the 5th novel, The Burning Land. The Review sections are often quite brief. It is likely more reviews were written, but not yet included in the articles for each novel by any editor. Most of the articles are Plot and Characters and information on first publication date, as readers awaited each next novel. You might use what has been included as the basis for a Reviews or Literary Significance section in this article about the series. Bernard Cornwell is a prolific author, with over 50 novels to his credit. I have not looked up the number sold for any of his novels, but sometimes that is included in a review by Publishers Weekly, if they reviewed the novel, or have something to say about a series. Cornwell gained re...

    GwydionM wants to change the name in a quotation from the interview Cornwell gave to The Guardian. I checked the source and Cornwell named Alfred and Aethelstan, but some want his quote to say Alfred and Edward. To change the name in a quote is not a simple edit, like fixing commas in non-quoted text. I accept the quote as accurate, which is why I reverted this change twice. If you really want to challenge the source, you need some basis to do that. Further if you do believe someone erred, then leave the quote as is, and learn how and when to use Template:Sic. Saying a printed quote is wrong takes care, and needs to be indicated, plus explained in the edit title, as well as being marked. Are you better than the editors of The Guardian? Did Cornwell misspeak? Is this important? Recall that the concept of the 'big story' is first mentioned in the section, Idea for the series of novels, the first section of this article. 1. The text at issue is in The Saxon Stories#Television adaptatio...

    Maybe some of it can be incorporated on this page. CapnZapp (talk) 12:45, 27 December 2019 (UTC) 1. Are you proposing this long summary of the character's life, as a separate article, with no sources, CapnZapp? Keeping a long text on the talk page is not a suitable place -- this is the place to talk about how to improve the article, not archive deleted material from some other article. --Prairieplant (talk) 08:57, 3 January 2020 (UTC) 1.1. No, what I did was suggesting some of it might be incorporated on this page. Nothing more, nothing less. CapnZapp (talk) 11:05, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
