What is being said about Larcum Mudge
If you have not yet discovered the immense talent of author Philip K. Allan, you ought do so immediately. Happily, fans of this genre have had several really good writers to enjoy since the late, widely lamented Patrick O’Brian could no longer put pen to paper. But among the new group, Allan stands out.
His characters are not caricatures; they evolve and face challenges…the sea battles and the ship-to-ship fights are vividly done…yet only the most serious student of Royal Navy history might know them to be fictitious.
It is Allan’s imagination and plot development that I most admire.
