Hodder & Stoughton have signed a deal to publish a further four books in the Kydd series by Julian Stockwin. The series tells the story of a young wigmaker’s son, Thomas Kydd, who is press-ganged to sea. As he rises through the decks, his adventures take him around the world. Published in many countries around the world, this is the first series to highlight the common seaman in the great age of fighting sail. 

The first of the four titles and book 22 in the series, TO THE EASTERN SEAS, will be published in hardback, e-book and audio in October 2019. The subsequent Kydd tales will then be released every nine months.

Breaking news for US fans: TYGER (Book 16) and INFERNO (Book 17) are now available to purchase in audio in the US too.

JULIAN STOCKWIN’S TYGER NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK

The 16th novel in Julian Stockwin’s popular KYDD series, TYGER, is published in paperback today by Hodder & Stoughton. The novel was published in the US in October by McBooks.

In the latest instalment, the greatest naval trial in the Georgian period is underway at Portsmouth with the court martial of Sir Home Popham, Captain Sir Thomas Kydd's commanding officer in the doomed occupation of Buenos Aires. Kydd has some sympathy for Popham's unauthorised action but his support for his former commander leaves him athwart some very influential people in the Admiralty. Action-packed, and page-turning, as we follow Kydd and Renzi in another adventure.

At 14 Stockwin joined a tough sea-training school, followed by the Royal Navy, transferring to the Royal Australian Navy when his family emigrated.  He saw active service in the Far East, the Antarctic, the South Seas and Vietnam, and was on board the Melbourne at the time of its disastrous peace time collision with the Voyager.  His standalone novel THE SILK TREE is currently out in paperback from Allison & Busby. He’s currently writing another KYDD novel for Hodder and another standalone, THE POWDER OF DEATH, for Allison & Busby.
