Guy of Gisburne: The Omnibus

Abaddon Books
Free sample

England, 1191. Richard Lionheart has left the realm bankrupt and leaderless in his quest for glory. Only Prince John seems willing to fight back the tide of chaos threatening England – embodied by the traitorous ‘Hood.’

But John has a secret weapon: Guy of Gisburne, outcast, mercenary, and now knight. From intercepting the jewel-encrusted skull of John the Baptist to investigating a string of grisly deaths linked to the Prince's own past, Guy is John’s hound, combating chaos and fighting the enemies of England wherever they may be found.

From Ireland to Marseilles and as far as the Levant, aided by his faithful squire Galfrid and the beautiful and secretive Mélisande, Gisburne battles his way with sword, lance and bow in England’s name, drawing ever nearer the day he will have to confront his oldest and greatest foe...

Collects the novels Knight of Shadows and The Red Hand.

About the author

Toby Venables is a novelist, screenwriter and lecturer in Film Studies at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge. He grew up watching old Universal horror movies when his parents thought he was asleep, reading 2000 AD and obsessing about Beowulf. There was probably a bit more to it, but he can't quite remember what it was.

He has since worked as a journalist and magazine editor – launching magazines in Cambridge, Peterborough, Oxford and Bristol – and once orchestrated an elaborate Halloween hoax for which he built and photographed a werewolf. He still works as a freelance copywriter, has been the recipient of a radio advertising award, and in 2001 won the Keats-Shelley Memorial Prize (both possibly due to typing errors).

His first novel (for Abaddon) was The Viking Dead – a historical-zombie-SF mashup which has been described as "A fantastic mix of history, violence and horror" and "ludicrous fun."
