Welcome to the world of Jack Whyte

Welcome to the world of Jack Whyte

Welcome to the reworked world of Jack Whyte, wherein you may once again lose yourselves in other realities after a long and involuntary absence from these pages.  What you are seeing here, at first blush, is a completely new and reworked site platform that we believe you will find friendlier and far more easy to navigate than the previous site was. Our original site, www.camulod.com was launched a long time ago, in March of 1997 which makes it absolutely venerable (Would you believe unbelievably archaic?) in terms of technology.  Think back on your own experiences of the Internet in the past ten years and the number of changes you yourself have seen and noted in that time. Think of the changes that have come down the pike in the past five years . . . smart phones and social networking alone would have seemed like magic less than ten years ago…

So now we’re launching the new Official Jack Whyte website, with a brand-new, greatly simplified yet far more sophisticated platform, that will make life a lot easier and more user-friendly for everyone. But there’s one fairly major and inevitable change involved, though it’s not earth-shakingly radical. The name, “Camulod.com”, is no longer as relevant as a site name as it once was, because Jack himself has moved on from 5th-Century Britain and the post-Roman Arthurian themes that inspired the name, and there are readers of his work out there now, fans of his Knights Templar trilogy, who are simply not familiar with his earlier, Arthurian novels. That’s going to continue,

“Welcome back, and we hope you’ll enjoy yourself even more than you did before.”

increasingly, to be the case, for he is currently working on a 14th-Century Scots trilogy, The Guardians. For that reason, we will be publicizing (and marketing) this site from now on as jackwhyte.com. Those of you who have it bookmarked as Camulod.com should not worry though. You’ll still be able to access the site as you always have in the past. Right now, as you look around and see nothing but text, you’ll probably think, “This is looking pretty sparse” – and you’re right. But that’s going to change rapidly and radically. We’ll start adding pictures and illustrations from now on, but Jack’s own clearly expressed wish was to get the new platform in place as visible reality, to demonstrate that this time the changes are really happening. Once the new platform’s up and running, and people are starting to use it again, we’ll have all kinds of marvelous material to add at our leisure. . . . And we do… And so, to those of you who have been wondering what happened and where we went, we’d like to say, “Welcome back, and we hope you’ll enjoy yourself even more than you did before.”

    Great series of books, very hard to put one down once you start to read, One question,which book follows on from The Sorcerer -metamorphosis? Would it be Uther or is this a stand alone book or is it The Lance Thrower? I may seem to be a little simple here but there is nothing to let you know.

    I am a French newcomer to this site. But not to the Camulod Saga, which I discovered about ten years ago. I loved the 6 first books at first reading, despite difficulties with part of the language. This year, I have just read it all over form the beginning and until the last one (Eagle), and the pleasure was still the same.

    Because I enjoyed it so much, I would like to share it with my family and friends here in France. But apparently, no french translation is available. So I would like to know if Jack Whyte has any plans for a french translation of the Camulod saga. If not, how can we convince him that it is a neccessity ?

    Sorry for my poor english and thanks for your answer.

    Elizabeth, you need no apology for your English. For this Texan, it is much more understandable than what passes for English in most places.

    I am also a newcomer to this site, but have not read the Camulod Saga. I got onto this site after reading two volumes of the Templar Trilogy. I had (still have) a difficult time trying to figure out where the line is between fiction, and history. Regardless, I enjoyed it very much.

    I just wanted to leave a few words on the site after discovering it.

    Dispite being new to the site, I am a commited follower of all of Jack’s books having read The Camulod Chronicles, The Templar Trilogy and Jack’s bio – 40 Years in Canada. I am looking forward to reading the Forrest Laird! Jack has a really unique perspective on history and manages to convey it in a facinating and adictive way. I can’t stop reading and therefore read them over and over again!
