Tainted Relic
Sword of Shame

These two both contain linked stories by about 5 authors, the author gets listed as the 'Medieval Murderers' which is the name of their little ongoing collective.

Michael Jecks is the most prolific, he has maybe 20 novels in his Medieval Mystery Series, thats the one that I've been reading through, see here:

I'm upto about book 7, the first book is a little slow because of the back story, but it gets better as the series goes on. I've heard good things about 'Susanna Gregory' who is another of the 'Medieval Murderers' but have not started to read her stuff just yet, see here:

My medieval mystery reading has been temporarily interrupted, by needing to read some 1920s pulp stuff by Sax Rohmer (who did the Fu Manchu books).

He also wrote some Egyptian stuff (Green Eyes of Bast, Tales of Secret Egypt, Brood of the Witch Queen, Egyptian Nights, She Who Sleeps and more).

His books are certainly of their time (the 1920s), but they have been enjoyable romps :-)Literary snack food..like potato chips..tasty..but probably very bad for you!

I am gradually picking his books up (Everything before 1923 is Public Domain)Some of the 60's reissues of his work have great trashy covers :-)

He was a member of the Golden Dawn, friend of Harry Houdini, and HP Lovecraft though highly of his work. (see Here for more)
