Tuesday night on “Well Read,” the books and authors television program on state public access channel TVW, we had some fun with the swashbuckling genre, helped by Anacortes author Bill Dietrich (before he became an esteemed author, Bill was a Pulitzer-Prize-winning reporter for The Seattle Times).
Dietrich discussed his new Ethan Gage novel, “The Emerald Storm.” Ethan is a Napoleonic-era rapscalion who specializes in getting into and out of trouble. Afterwards, I offered my swashbuckling reading list, which includes the seafaring novels of Patrick O’Brian, Isabel Allende’s “Zorro” and “The Fencing Master” by Spanish author Arturo Perez-Reverte.
