The Year of
the Horsetails Wins Gold in Dan Poynter's Ebook awards!
The recently reprinted historical novel The Year of the Horsetails by
R. F. Tapsell has won gold in the Dan Poynter's Ebook Awards 2014 in Historical Literature Fiction- Medieval."Intensely
exciting. An inspiration.” Harry
Sidebottom endorses novel Year of the Horsetails.
Harry Sidebottom, author of the bestselling
Warrior of Rome series, has made the following comment on the recently reprinted novel The Year of the Horsetails.
“Set in an unusual time
and place, The Year of the Horsetails creates an exotic, fully imagined world combined with universal themes. Intensely
exciting. An inspiration.” He earlier included the following remark in an appendix to Warrior
of Rome: The Wolves of the North:-
"While editing this
novel, I chanced upon a novel I read as a child. Re-reading The Year of the Horsetails by R. F. Tapsell (1967), I
realized where my interest in nomadic warfare began and, with Bardiya - Tapsell’s siege-engineer, outsider hero - something
of the origins of Ballista. Tapsell was a superb historical novelist, and some enterprising publisher should put his works
back in print for a new generation. "
