Does Age of Sail also include PotC, or is PotC just loosely overlapping AoS? --Lipsum 04:39, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

I need to drag in some people from my flist who actually participated rather than sort of eavesdropped. Lemme go get an expert. --Betty 04:42, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
As a PotC fan, I think AoS includes PotC -- it's included in the despatches newsletter and the main Age of Sail communities that I know of on LiveJournal. I'm going to add it, but if AoS purists want to disagree, we could go with something like "sometimes including PotC."--Penknife 13:14, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Is Georgette Heyer really Age of Sail? I can't think of any of her books which would fall into this category. The only one largely set on board ship, so far as I remember, is Beauvallet and that's set in the seventeenth century. A couple of books feature Channel crossings, but it's not exactly Hornblower stuff.

Well, as much as Jane Austen is. And Sharpe is military but not exactly nautical. For at least some fans, AoS includes all fandoms set in the Age of Sail era (however you define it), especially in England, whether they actually relate to sailing in any way or not.--Penknife 10:33, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

I think there have been multiple stories involving Archie Kennedy and other such characters being saved by Dr. Maturin. The particularly well-known story that springs to mind involves Tony Dewhurst though. Anyone recallt he title? Franzeska 23:02, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
