I am Richard Adams, author of Watership Down, Shardik, and other novels. AMA!
I will be answering questions in approximately half an hour/an hour from now for as long as I can. My grandson will be helping me type up responses. Ask away!

EDIT : I'm tired now, and have answered as many questions as I could in the time. I'll see if I can come back to answer one or two more later on, but may not be able to. Thank you all so much for your friendship, and your enthusiasm about my books. If you want to read more about me take a look at "The Day Gone By" which is an autobiography of my earlier years, including my time in the army.

Thank you again!
