Egerton Castle, famous as a pioneer of the late-Victorian revival of Elizabethan swordsmanship, was also a very accomplished novelist. "The Sword and the Pen" compiles Castle's two greatest short stories of swashbuckling romance and intrigue, both set at the turn of the 1600s. "My Rapier and My Daughter" is a witty, lighthearted tale of star-crossed lovers, played out almost entirely within the rapier fencing academy of Master Vincentio Saviolo. "The Great Todescan's Secret Thrust" concerns the quest of a young English bravo to learn the invincible killing stroke of a mysterious master swordsman. As a bonus, Tony Wolf's biographical essay "Egerton Castle, the Romantic Swordsman" describes Castle's many achievements as a Renaissance man of the late 19th century. Highly recommended for all lovers of fencing fiction!
