Songs of Wales: A Poetry Collection By G. R. Grove
eBook (ePub): $8.99

Most of these poems have been published before in one or another of my previous collections, although there are a few new ones at the end. However, although a good portion of my work over the last... More > twenty years has been connected with Wales and the Welsh, these poems are intermingled with an assortment of other material in my two trade paperback collections (King Arthur’s Raid on Hell and Other Poems and Pryderi’s Pigs and Other Poems), with brief extracts from the Storyteller books in Storyteller Songs, and with other religious poetry in Druid Songs. I therefore decided to draw together most of my Welsh material in one small-format volume for the convenience of the reader uninterested in, e.g., material connected with the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) or with other Indo-European traditions. I have also included a few pieces not previously published. - G. R. Grove< Less
Brother Hermitage the Shorts By Howard of Warwick
eBook (ePub): $0.00
Download immediately.
Vignettes from the life of the most medieval detective of all, Brother Hermitage. Rooting through the cast-off manuscripts of an accident in a parchment factory, Howard of Warwick has pieced... More > together a remarkable tale. Several of them in fact. These tales cast a new light on medieval investigation, but it's not a very bright light. They follow the comings and goings of Brother Hermitage, the monk who somehow resolved the mystery of The Heretics of De'Ath.The monk who stumbled though the murder of The Garderobe Of Death. The monk who wandered through The Tapestry of Death. And the monk who came out alive from Hermitage, Wat and Some Murder or Other. Doing what no other storyteller of medieval murder would dare, probably quite wisely, Howard of Warwick, takes us into the mind of Brother Hermitage. Here we find there is quite a lot of room, but most of it is full of books. Read if your dare. Read if you must. Just don't take anything too seriously.< Less

A wonderfully-written masterpiece of storytelling, originally designed for younger readers but which became popular with all ages because of its easy-to-read narrative, this book tells the story of... More > the development of all the European nations from the time of the fall of the Roman Empire until just after the Reformation. Acknowledged as an ideal introduction to the history of the European Middle Ages, this book is written in a rollicking early twentieth century style which pulls no punches in describing the racial issues which confronted Europe, as this quote from the section on the Ottoman invasion of Europe illustrates: “The Ottoman Turks were the last barbarian tribe to settle upon European soil. They did not disappear like the Huns, they were not driven forth like the Saracens, they have in no way become Europeanized like the Hungarians or Magyars, they have remained Asiatic and alien, a blot upon the map of Europe to this day.” Contains the full text and all the original charts, maps and tables.< Less
