Alaric Bond has had a varied career, writing for various periodicals, television, radio comedy as well as the stage. He now focuses on historical nautical fiction with sixteen published novels, thirteen of which are in his acclaimed ‘Fighting Sail’ series.

Set in ‘Nelson’s Navy’ of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars, these have no central hero but feature characters from all ranks and stations; an innovative approach that gives an exciting and realistic impression of life aboard a warship of the period.

Hellfire Corner is the first in an intended new series and marks a change in emphasis although future 'Fighting Sail' and 'Coastal Forces' books are planned.
