The Case of the Curious Corpse hits the world today. 700 gone in the first 8 hours – and in the month leading up… One of Brother Hermitage’s trickiest cases, mainly because King William is breathing down his neck most of the time. There’s an absolute queue of suspects, a confusion of evidence and even a little rhyme about the men of the marshes. Who did it? Who knows? Certainly not the King’s Investigator…

The very latest ramblings of Brother Hermitage see the light of day. Available now to pre-order as the last pieces of the jigsaw are slotted into place. 31st May 2017 will see everything revealed. As usual, the process of revelation is a bit of a shambles, particularly to those involved.

King William and the Normans are up to their necks in it, and there are Saxons, Vikings, the Welsh and even a Saracen or two… it really is a must read for people who must read this sort of nonsense.


The next title in the increasingly lengthy Chronicles of Brother Hermitage nears its conclusion.

The day has come to cast off the inconvenience of remunerated employment and take on the even greater inconvenience of relying on Brother Hermitage to put a crust on the table. I know what you’re thinking – it doesn’t need to be a big crust and even a medium crust can last several days – but we must hope the raw material keeps flowing.

At least The Case of the Curious Corpse is coming along nicely and The Case of the Cantankerous Carcass will be hard on its heels. After that? Well, if I put some crusts in the freezer we should be relatively fine.

At least the clock on the wall says that nearly 55,000 tales have gone and so perhaps there could be some butter on the crusts in alternate months.
