Vignettes from the life of the most medieval detective of all, Brother Hermitage.

A series of 'excerpts' from the full novels of each. A teaser / tester if you will -to see if it's the reader's cuppa.

Can't see why not when the main character, a monk, his innocence and intelligence (of the era) made him look gormless yet fearless. Brother Hermitage escapades along with HoW's agent and critique(r) made the whole set up worthy of reading. Though I think HoW's agent didn't do a creditable job of editing. There were grammatical errors and misspelling in the MSs.

What? Too busy arg

Despite this publication sneaking past me when I wasn't looking, I discovered its existence and settled to reading it immediately.
Another work of genius by Mr Of Warwick. Missed Wat but, otherwise loved it. On reflection I think Hermitage may remind me more of Piglet than Pooh with his air of bewilderment.

An easy short story. Another encounter for the hapless brother who unwittingly influences the inn keeper in a course of action he didnt intend. There's a twist at the end too. No murder or crime as such, more of an ooops. Not having an apple device had to read it on my friend's ipad mini. Pity that. Google play, kobo, kindle are all doable for me. Put it on of these please

Howard of Warwick is but a humble chronicler with the blind luck to stumble upon manuscripts which describe the goings on of Brother Hermitage and his companion Wat the weaver.

His work has been heard, seen and read, most of it accompanied by laughter and some of it by money. His peers have even seen fit to recognize his unworthy efforts with a prize for making up stories.

There are now five novels
