Will Hahn has been in love with heroic tales since age four, when his father read him the Lays of Ancient Rome and the Tales of King Arthur. He taught Ancient-Medieval History for years, but the line between this world and others has always been thin; the far reaches of fantasy, like the distant past, still bring him face to face with people like us, who have choices to make.

Will didn't always make the right choices when he was young. Any stick or vaguely-sticklike object became a sword in his hands, to the great dismay of his five sisters. Everyone survived, in part by virtue of a rule forbidding him from handling umbrellas, ski poles, curtain rods and more.

Will has written about the Lands of Hope since his college days (which by now are a

Crow Country Now Available

My big summer ’22 project is now available as of October 9th (a meaningful date in the tale itself). The early reviews have been very good, and the publisher is “going wide” so it’s available in many retail outlets.

“The print version of Crow Country represents a powerful study in survival and wonder; but an audiobook’s strength rests on its narrator. In this, Crow Country also shines, powered by a Read more of this blog post »

William Hahn is finished with The Prince: First read The Prince in college- a revelation, made me understand the vital importance of context in historical writing. As far as I'm concerned, there's no way he wrote a book about how to govern to an incompetent fop who had hired mercs to beat Niccolo's new army, and then torture and exile him. I realized a whole new way to view not only Machiavelli, but all of History as I continued to study it.
