Did you see that they’ve published Patrick O’Brian’s unfinished twenty first Aubrey/Maturin novel? O’Brian died last year and I just finished the series a month or so ago, and now they’ve tossed this one into the mix. I thought I was done. Apparently it has his hand written manuscript and his typed draft and an edited version. I’m not sure that I want to read it, because the last volume really seemed to wrap things up with Jack finally becoming an Admiral of the Line, his goal throughout his career. But on the other hand it might provide some great insight into the mind of one of the greatest historical writers ever.
