The latest Kozef and Ceinan adventure story, Thieves’ Boulevard, is now available for purchase on Amazon.com! It clocks in at about 25,000 words, so you can consider it a┬ánovella rather than a short story or novelette. Hope you enjoy it!

In the Donjon quarter, the sordid slum-district of the sprawling metropolis of Auvand, the vagabond soldiers of fortune Kozef and Ceinan come into sudden possession of a treasure of unimaginable value. Knowing that such a coveted artefact will only bring grief and trouble rather than wealth and riches, they resolve to simply discard it and walk away.

But to grasp it for even a moment is to court the attention of underhanded forces who will stop at nothing to claim it for their own ends, and Kozef and Ceinan soon find themselves the target not only of the Polecats – the society of thieves and robbers that holds the entire slum-district in its clutches – but also a mysterious and beguiling woman for whom stealing and subterfuge come as naturally as breathing.
