About the Series from the Assassin Without a Name himself
I had a name once, same as everyone else, but after one glorious night of murder, it was no longer safe to use. Small sacrifice for ensuring my family's safety, I figured. So now I don't use one. In my line of work, it's not necessary anyway. What is my line of work? Murder, of course, though I fancy myself more than just an assassin. Gentleman, thief, wine connoisseur, adventurer, a man of a thousand names and none. I'm all of those things and more. Everything in my life was about as perfect as one could hope until one particular job came along. Kill the artificer, steal the plans, make an exchange. Simple enough, until a band of fanatical priests ambushed and tried to kill me. Turns out the plans describe some sort of dark energy machine. The priests aren't the only ones interested in it, either. I've no desire to be a hero, but I'll do whatever I have to do to keep my city—and my sister—safe.
There's already blood on my hands. What's a little more?
From the Author
The Assassin Without a Name fantasy adventure series features an assassin with a skill for murder and a penchant for fine wine. Through happenstance and a compulsion to look after his interests, the Nameless Assassin becomes embroiled with malignant forces, and not in a good way. Hunted by Black Guardsmen, plagued by death priests, and reluctantly involved with a society whose mission is to further the advance of technology (some of it ‘dark’ technology), our reluctant hero may take the high road at times, but the memory of one glorious night of murder, when he gave up his true identity and never looked back, always lurks in his mind.
Now, with his city under threat, the Assassin Without a Name will do whatever it takes to preserve his way of life and protect the family who thinks him dead. He gave up his life once so that others could live. If he has to, he’ll do it again.
My influences include Howard, Moorcock, Lovecraft, Leiber, and Gygax, so don’t be surprised if you detect a hint of their form of sword and sorcery in this series. In a way, the books are loosely based on the structure of the timeless Thieves World books, where an ever-expanding cast of characters interact with one another across an equally expanding cityscape.
This is sword, sorcery, and alchemy at its best. You won’t be disappointed with the result.
