Post Weyman, Stanley J: The Man in Black v1 1.feb 2009

Stanley John Weyman was an English novelist sometimes referred to as the "Prince of Romance". He was born at Ludlow, Shropshire, as the son of a solicitor. He was educated at Shrewsbury School, and at Christ Church, Oxford. He obtained his degree in modern history in 1877, and was called to the bar at the Inner Temple in 1881. Weyman had been practicing as a barrister for eight years until, in 1889, he wrote his first novel entitled The House of the Wolf (1890). This was followed by the novels which were to make his reputation: among them are historical romances set amidst the turmoil of 16th and 17th century France. His most famous works include: A Gentleman of France (1893), Under the Red Robe (1894), The Castle Inn (1898) and The Long Night (1903).

Quote:
The other men, gathering round, glared at the boy hungrily. In the middle of the Forest of Bondy he could not have been more at their mercy than he was in this quiet corner of the market, where a velvet coat with silver buttons was as rare a sight as a piece of the true cross. Two or three houseless wretches looked on from their frowsy lairs under the stalls, but no one dreamed of interfering with the men in possession. As for the boy, he gazed at his captors stolidly; he was white, mute, apathetic.
Short and sweet. If you like Sabatini and Dumas, you will like Weyman! Caution: MTH-made cover ahead!

Thanks so much for all the Stanley John Weyman. I'm a huge historical fiction fan especially of France. I just discovered Weyman today, and have been busy downloading all his works that I could get my hands on and creating a collection on my Kindle. Thank you.
