He is the author of a number of books, mostly about the far east.
Shogun being my favourite book of all time.
I loved King Rat, Gai-jin, Tai-pan. I am about to start reading Whirlwind soon too, once I've finished Pirates! in an adventure with scientists. (which is just a lil comedy type book my mum got me for xmas).
Anyone else read any of his stuff?
