Blackguards released in audio...and you can get a free short from it


Blackguards, that terrific anthology from Ragnarok Publications just released in audio (8/25/2015).


It contains, works from some great authors of rogues and assassins, and even one from me. Here's the line up:
  • Foreword by Glen Cook (Black Company)
  • Carol Berg, "Seeds"
  • Richard Lee Byers, "Troll Trouble"
  • David Dalglish, "Take You Home"
  • James Enge, "Thieves at the Gate"
  • John Gwynne, "Better to Live than to Die"
  • Lian Hearn, "His Kikuta Hands"
  • Snorri Kristjansson, "A Kingdom and a Horse"
  • Joseph Lallo, "Seeking the Shadow"
  • Mark Lawrence, "The Secret"
  • Tim Marquitz, "A Taste of Agony"
  • Peter Orullian, "A Length of Cherrywood"
  • Cat Rambo, "The Subtler Art"
  • Laura Resnick, "Friendship"
  • Mark Smylie, "Manhunt"
  • Kenny Soward, "Jancy's Justice"
  • Shawn Speakman, "The White Rose Thief"
  • Jon Sprunk, "Sun and Steel"
  • Anton Strout, "Scream"
  • Michael J. Sullivan, "Professional Integrity"
  • Django Wexler, "The First Kill"
  • Paul S. Kemp, "A Better Man"
  • James A. Moore, "What Gods Demand"
  • Jean Rabe, "Mainon"
  • Bradley P. Beaulieu, "Irindai"
  • S. R. Cambridge, "The Magus and the Betyar"
  • Clay Sanger, "The Long Kiss"
I'm proud to be included in such an august line-up. And I hope people will enjoy my Royce and Hadrian entry.  In fact, you can listen to that short story for free...thanks to the wonderful people at Audible.com.  Like all the Riyria tales, this one is narrated by the amazing Tim Gerard Reynolds.


So, give Professional Integrity a listen, and if you like what you hear, why not give the other stories in Blackguards a try. I think you'll enjoy what you find.

  1. I really enjoyed "Professional Integrity." Particularly Royce and Hadrian's "Inigo and Vizzini" moment.

  2. I love Hadrian and Royce so much that after I discovered this wonderful story available for free! ! and listened to it, I missed them so much I've decided to go back and listen to all the books again. I'm 50 and have done this with less than 12 stories in my life (I've got 230 audible titles alone and started collecting those in 2012). I love your writing, descriptions, characters, world and stories. Thank you. I will pre order book three tomorrow. I can't wait. You are one of my favorite authors. Keep the stories coming.
