The Patrick O'Brian
Patrick O'Brian (given name: Richard
Patrick Russ, 1914 - 2000) was the author of twenty books (and
three chapters) detailing the naval and terrestrial exploits of
Captain Jack Aubrey and Doctor Stephen Maturin, in a period from
1801 to 1815.
"For the right deep swimming in a book, give
me the sea..." Stephen Maturin, The Yellow Admiral
- Patrick O'Brian was born 100 year ago this month. The BBC has this sampling of his work.
- Just in time for the 100th birthday celebration - Sojourner Tours
is offering excursions starting in Collioure, France (where POB lived
and is buried). These tours can have boat trips added on if there's
enough interest from folks.
- Three short stories by POB - hidden for almost 80 years - will be re-issued in December of 2014. Here's the scoop. (Thanks, Dean King).
- Help out with the WikiPOBia - a great effort to annotate all of the Aubrey/Maturin series.
