Dear Dr Graham Awww, never you mind, sir. It ain't the end of the series, natural nor otherwise, now,is it. Cos why? cos there are three more books after that one, ain't they, is why.   There are certainly early series references in its suggestively circular way, and M&C has the same lovely kind of framework, penultimate chapter circling back to first, too. But the remaining--the Yellow Admiral!--and others are grand. Blue at the Mizzen holds joys upon joys. Elegiac to be sure, mela ...

Still working my way through the canon for the first time I register disappointment that The Commadore (currently lost in the post) is the natural end to the series.

I think that the novels were amazingly well done particularly when you consider the success. I think as a reader one begins to assume that they will go on forever but we know that can't be as we know Jack Aubrey could never settle into becoming the lord of the manor! The Canon ended in the only way I believe it could, with the death of POB mid book!

I thought Letter of Marque felt like the end of the series, but I'm glad he didn't stop there.

9 Was The Commodore a natural end to the canon? Re: SM Stirling: Island in the Sea of Time, 100% POB -- rank: 1000
I was surprised that this evoked no response first time around, so am submitting with a clearer subject. This is one of those alternate history stories, pretty good - an "Event" causes Nantucket to be flipped back 3500 years to the bronze age, and includes a Coastguard square rigger training ship, with complement of cadets and crew. The relevance is in this passage (the book is set in 1998, and published in that year); the commander of the ship is Marion Alston: Alston...opened ...

At a I think I would pretty much agree with Bruce on this. Ted At about: Lat: 37° 49'S Lon: 145° 1'E. "The Navy must not let the Army Down. It takes three years to build a ship; it takes three centuries to build a tradition."
