I have a hankering for reading some lightweight colonial era fiction. I have read a lot of Flashman. I have read a couple of the Simon Fonthill and am left wanting something else. Wilcox spends too much time shoving modern sensibilities into his characters – and the characters are pretty cardboard.
What other suggestions do folks have.

The Dando Trilogy is SUPERB…by William Clive, along with a few other books.
V.A. Stuart's not bad either, followed by the James Ogilvie NWF (and some Boer, extraneous) series

Agree about the Dando trilogy.
Don't know anything about the others

Donald Featherstone wrote a few novels, I have a few but haven't read them yet. They're available still from the History of Wargaming: wargaming.co/novels/home.htm
Have VA Stuart too, they look pretty good.
