He’s divorcing from his wife, his mom’s cancer is back, and he’s hungry for meaning. But he knows “next to nothing” about his mother’s plan to make him walk 500 miles.He knows the Camino began around the reign of King Alfonso II - “whom responsible historians surely call The Fonz” - in the 9th century, and that, in the New Testament, Jesus referred to James and his brother John as "Sons of Thunder".  Whoa.

Brother Hermitage. The Shorts

by Howard of Warwick

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

Rooting through the cast-off manuscripts of an accident in a parchment factory, Howard of Warwick has pieced together a remarkable tale. Several of them in fact.

They follow the comings and goings of Brother Hermitage, the monk who somehow resolved the mystery of The Heretics of De'Ath.The monk who stumbled though the murder of The Garderobe Of Death. The monk who wandered through The Tapestry of Death. And the monk who came out alive from Hermitage, Wat and Some Murder or Other.

Doing what no other storyteller of medieval murder would dare do, probably quite wisely, Howard of Warwi...
