Vault of Deeds [eBook] by James Barclay
PUBLICATION DATE: July 2012
COVER ART Edward Miller
This was one of those ideas that just wouldn’t go away. In the midst of writing A Shout For The Dead came an unbidden thought. Happens that way sometimes which is why I go nowhere without my notebook. It was a germ that became a gem to me, having polished it up and let it rattle around in my head and on scraps of paper here and there…
…a comedy. Or if not, a little humorous at the least. It would concern a man whose job it was to chronicle the deeds of his own personal hero but as we join him he is witnessing that hero’s sudden and gory demise. This leaves him all alone on a mountainside swarming with the forces of evil. Right, I thought, away you go.
And out came the Vault of Deeds.
