Overview

Verily, doth a man who maketh history seldom know it.

Such a man is Allan Gavin of Barnesdale, a bard and minstrel of unsurpassed cunning with verse. He slayeth no dragons, nor doth he fight in Edward III's wars. But even as the tongue of the Britons is comingled with German, French and Latin, Allan elevates Artos the Bear, high chieftain over the Britons at the twilight of Rome's influence, into Arthur, king of all Angland, through his artful telling of tales.

But alas, Allan's noble friend Boudvaar, the troubadour, hath incurred the wrath of the sheriff in Nottinghamshire; and must meet the vile viscount in single combat. Allan shall accompany Boudvaar on this death march, neither bard nor troubadour fathoming that on the journey thence they should be waylaid by outlaws in Sherwood Forest.

About the Author

"Fresh and different is the best way to describe Henry Brown’s writing. From the tough-guy military fiction of Hell & Gone to the delightfully satirical superheroes of The Greater Good, you’ll find something completely different in Mr. Brown’s work." - conservativefiction.com I've always been an action-adventure guy. Normal, well-adjusted people may have grown too mature for movies like Star Wars or The Road Warrior; or fictional heroes like Conan, Tarzan or Mack Bolan. Well, that stuff left a permanent mark on me. So much for being normal and well-adjusted! My own real-life adventure began as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division, at 18 years old. OK, maybe it wasn't such a great adventure, but I'm proud to have served my country, and in an elite unit with such battlefield distinctions. My military escapades eventually led me through experiences in other corners of the US Army, as well as the USMC and Naval Reserve. My travels in life have taken me to the Caribbean; Central America; the Middle East; Alaska; Hawaii and all over the USA. I've traveled on trains, planes, automobiles, helicopters and ocean-going vessels. I've been trained in the use of rifles; bayonets; hand grenades; automatic rifles; machineguns; grenade launchers; anti-tank rockets and missiles. I even got to play with artillery and tanks. I also had plenty of opportunity to observe the behavior of my fellow human beings at their best and worst. My debut novel, Hell and Gone, is a deliberate throwback to commando tales of yesteryear like The Dirty Dozen. While working on my next novel (the sequel, Tier Zero--a deliberate throwback to the golden age of men's adventure), I released some shorter tales...pulp fiction, you could call it...in other genres that tickle my fancy.
