Jack Whyte

Jack Whyte (Johnstone, Renfrewshire, Scotland, 1940) is an author and writer born and raised in Scotland, but living in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada since 1967.

Whyte's major work to date is the "A Dream of Eagles" series (as it is titled in Canada, but known as "The Camulod Chronicles" in the United States and elsewhere). This series of historical novels presents the tale of King Arthur set against the backdrop of Roman Britain. This retelling of the popular legend eschews the use of magic (as in T. H. White’s The Sword in the Stone) to explain Arthur’s ascent to power and instead relies on the historical condition (with some artistic license) of post-Roman Britain to support the theory that Arthur was meant to counter the anarchy left by the Roman departure from Britain in 410 AD and the subsequent colonization and invasion of Britain by various peoples from Northwestern Europe, including the Saxons, Jutes, Franks, and Angles). Whyte incorporates both traditional Arthurian names, places and events (albeit in gaelic or Latin form) as well as the names of various historical figures that have been suggested as being the possible basis for the original King Arthur legend. The tacit implication is that Whyte's version of history is the true story that has become distorted over time to become the legend and stories of magic that we know today.

Jack Whyte served as the official bard of The Calgary Highlanders and performed several tracks of poetry and song on the 1990 recording by the Regimental Pipes and Drums of The Calgary Highlanders entitled "Eighty Years of Glory: The Regimental Pipes, Drums and Bard of The Calgary Highlanders."

Camulod Chronicles

"A Dream of Eagles" ("Camulod Chronicles")

*"The Skystone"
*"The Singing Sword"
*"The Eagles' Brood"
*"The Saxon Shore"
*"The Sorcerer Part 1: The Fort at River's Bend"
*"The Sorcerer Part 2: "

*Clothar the Frank (titled "The Lance Thrower" outside of Canada)
*The Eagle

Other

*"Uther", is a stand alone novel about the life of Uther Pendragon from infancy up until the end of events in "The Eagles' Brood". It serves to answer lingering questions left open by "The Eagles' Brood" that result from the fact that the latter is told exclusively from the perspective of Merlyn Britannicus and as such is not able to explain actions and events of which Merlyn is unaware. In this way, "Uther" is also an effective companion novel to "The Eagles' Brood" as it follows the title character and others as they grow up and wage war on Uther's main Enemy, Guhlrys Lot, King of Cornwall.

The Templar Trilogy

*"Knights of the Black and White" (Released August 1, 2006 in Canada)
*"Standard of Honor" (Released August 28, 2007 in Canada)
*"Order in Chaos" (To be released in October, 2008 in Canada)

New Series on Scottish Heroes

At a public reading in his hometown of Kelowna, British Columbia, on Thursday, November 8, 2007, Jack Whyte announced that he had, earlier that day, signed a contract for a new series of books on the heroes of his Scottish homeland.

Further information has it that the proposed trilogy will be called "The Guardians of Scotland", and will be set in 14th century Scotland during the Scottish Wars of Independence and will feature James "The Black" Douglas, William Wallace, and Robert the Bruce.

He'll start the series following completion of the Templar series which is still underway.

Though primarily a novelist, Whyte has also written and published at least one short story:
* "Power Play" in Paradox Magazine, issue 8 (Winter 2005-2006), an exploration of the nature of power, set in Roman Jerusalem.
