Publisher Description

"I loved making the acquaintance of Sir Hereward and Mister Fitz. If you haven't met them yet, you are in for a treat. They are the best partnership in the world of fantasy since Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.” — George R.R. Martin, co-editor of “A Cargo of Ivories”

New York Times bestselling author Garth Nix’s exciting adult debut: a new collection including all eight stories—plus a never-before-published story—featuring Sir Hereward and his sorcerous puppet companion Mister Fitz, gathered in one magical volume for the first time ever!

Sir Hereward: the only male child of an ancient society of witches. Knight, artillerist, swordsman. Mercenary for hire. Ill-starred lover.

Mister Fitz: puppet, sorcerer, loremaster. Practitioner of arcane arts and wielder of sorcerous needles.

Sir Hereward and Mister Fitz: godslayers. Agents of the Council of the Treaty for the Safety of the World, charged with the location and removal of listed extra-dimensional entities, more commonly known as gods.

Together, they are relentless travelers in a treacherous world of magic, gunpowder, and adventure.

Compiled for the first time ever, these eight magical stories—plus an all-new tale, “The Field of Fallen Foe”—featuring fabulous, quintessential Garth Nix protagonists Sir Hereward and Mister Fitz comprise a must-have adult fantasy collection for fans and those about to discover the witch knight and his puppet sorcerer for the first time.

“It's a series of short stories that were published in various fiction magazines in the last decade, all centered on the titular characters. Their profession is hunting down errant gods that have been destroying people and the world. There's only so much worldbuilding that can be fit into short stories, but it's enough to let the action take center stage. It was a lot of fun, and the narrator for the audiobook seemed to have a great time with this one.”
Expressionless Face“It is not a book that gives me feelings or expectations. I want to finish as soon as possible because it is not interesting.”
