Rejoice and Resist – a Holiday Box Set for Repressive Times

I’m pleased that a new novelette featuring my highwayman will appear in Rejoice and Resist, the upcoming holiday box set from the Final Draft Tavern. The story is titled “The Highwayman Takes an Office,” and takes place four months before the beginning of Daring and Decorum. If you’ve read the novel, you’ll remember Robin mentioning vague reasons for decamping […]

The Highwayman’s Quarry – Thieves’ Cant
