the Ballad of Septimus Mak front cover image
Septimus has been a warrior all his life. From soldier to citizen and back again, he’s fought for Rome across Europe and beyond.

Now he’s in Albion, the mystical country from whence the druids sprang. Sent to scout the land, he finds a world far removed from the civilisation boasted by Rome, populated by beings beyond the wildest tales of bard and playwright alike.

A chance encounter starts him on a journey that will change him from jaded warrior to fey legend.

This is the tale of that journey.

A pagan sword and sorcery adventure, coming at Samhain 2023 (31.10.23/10.31.23)

When this is published, it’ll be 15 years and 5 months since I told the first tale about Septimus Mak at a pagan gathering. This novel has been a long time coming, and I hope those who heard me tell any or all of those first five tales enjoy the full-length story at last.
