nyghtly Armes now has its own imprint dedicated to the publication of historical fiction and supernatural horror titles that are set against a well-researched medieval backdrop and feature a member of the knightly class as a principal character. All titles are available in trade paperback and eBook formats.

While our audience generally ranges from young adult (ages 14+) to adult, our horror stories are not for the faint of heart. They are gritty and violent, and the good guys may not always win. We believe that vampires should not sparkle.

The first Knyghtly Armes title, The Second Great Mortality by Lonnie Colson, was released on 2 May 2016. It is a medieval supernatural horror set in Gloucestershire in 1436.

    Spring 2016: The Second Great Mortality

    Gloucestershire 1436. For Sir Richard de Colleville, no tale could begin more perfectly: an unseasonably mild day spent hunting deep in the old forest with his son, Thomas. Without warning, a pale-skinned stranger viciously assaults their party, leaving one man dead and another severely injured. Panic fills their hearts when they realize the stranger’s corpse bears the unmistakeable signs of Plague. Find Out More
