• The Swords Of Albion Redux

    When you write a series of fantasies about swashbuckling Elizabethan spies, you don’t expect them to take on a contemporary relevance.  But here we are.

    Elizabeth is on the throne.  A technology boom is underway.  We have a flowering of the arts and a rapidly growing capital city.

    There’s talk of buccaneering trade deals.

    And now…war with Spain?

    It’s the sixteenth century all over again.

    As yet no supernatural enemies besieging Britain, and I’m still looking for our Christopher Marlowe, who appears in book two.  See for yourself how little has changed in four hundred and fifty years.  You can sample the books here:

    The Sword of Albion

    The Scar-Crow Men

    The Devil’s Looking Glass

      I loved all your fantasy novels! Is there any chance you will write fantasy again?

      Absolutely! My notebook is packed with ideas. It’s really a matter of prioritising. I’m currently working on various TV projects and the historical fiction novels I wrote under my pseudonym James Wilde did well enough that my publisher is currently “very keen” that I get a few more of those out. But you might like Pendragon which comes out from James Wilde on July 13. It blurs the lines between history and fantasy and connects with the Age of Misrule books on some levels.

      Should be. We’re talking to US publishers now, but it won’t be till after the UK publication.
