I’ve been a devout follower of the Legends of Windemere series so when I saw a spin-off of sorts, I knew I had to read it.



Ichabod Brooks is a man who’s a mercenary for hire and he’s always up for a new adventure. If you need a magical item or need some help rescuing orphans, Ichabod is your man. His wife handles the contracts and is the brain behind the business, which I loved. He’s just out having adventures and trying to play down his exploits. Oh, and he can bake, too. These are the stories

Eleven diverse, and cleverly composed, adventures of my favourite Hero, each one worthy of being a separate book in their own right.
Charles constantly amazes me with the care and thought he puts into each and every tale, characters and aspects of the world they live in.
Brilliantly immersive tales.

This is a well-written collection of stories, which I found to be both creative and entertaining. I love the character of Ichabod, and found joining him on more of his adventures to be an enjoyable experience.

Charles Yallowitz is not only a prolific writer but also very entertaining. He has created a world that contains every imaginable permutation of a fantasy character. One of my favorites is Ichabod Brooks. Ichabod is a mercenary, or perhaps it is more accurate to say problem solver for hire. You see Ichabod is a business man who makes sure all his jobs are back up with a contract. I have a suspicion that his wife was responsible for the due diligence that led to the need for a written agreement. ...more

"Some heroes seek fame. Some seek fortune. Others want to save the world. Ichabod Brooks only wants to put food on the table for his family." Through the 11 stories of this collection, he does just that. With uncommon humility, he attempts to discourage the ever-present bards who seek to make their own reputations by telling exaggerated tales of his exploits.

The stories are set in the same world as Yallowitz's main series, Legends of Windermere, so many things will be familiar to anyone who has

Writing fantasy short stories is not easy, as witnessed by the fact that so few of them have been written. The fact that Yallowitz has done such a great job with Ichabod Brooks explains why he has become one of my favorite authors. He combines incredibly detailed fantastical worlds with realistic characters, suspending my disbelief to the point where I'm actually wondering what I'd do if, say, a sexy Calico was determined to have her way with me or a bunch of skeleton priests wanted to kill me f ...more

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
