QSF’er J. Tullos Henning has two re-releases coming out soon:
The Hooded One. The one to breathe the dark and light and dusk between….
When an old druid foresees this harbinger of chaos, he also glimpses its future. A peasant from Loxley will wear the Hood and, with his sister, command a last, desperate bastion of Old Religion against New. Yet a devout nobleman’s son could well be their destruction–Gamelyn Boundys, whom Rob and Marion have befriended. Such acquaintance challenges both duty and destiny. The old druid warns that Rob and Gamelyn will be cast as sworn enemies, locked in timeless and symbolic struggle for the greenwode’s Maiden.
Instead, a defiant Rob dares his Horned God to reinterpret the ancient rites, allow Rob to take Gamelyn as lover instead of rival. But in the eyes of Gamelyn’s Church, sodomy is unthinkable… and the old pagan magics are an evil that must be vanquished.
The King of the Shire Wode. That is what they will call you…
Home razed by Church edict, loved ones struck down by treachery, Rob is left for dead. Taken by the old druid master into the deeps, Rob survives to emerge as driven leader of a band of tight-knit outcasts, claiming the forest as their own and wielding the Horned Lord’s vengeance with silent, deadly arrows. Gamelyn has fled England, only to return after finding new identity and purpose–but no absolution–on Crusade. When the two boyhood lovers next cross paths, it will be in a brutal, blindfolded game of foxes and hounds, one which pits Templar assassin against Heathen outlaw. When Rob discovers Marion is also still alive, the game turns.
History will chronicle Robyn Hood and Guy de Gisbourne as the deadliest of enemies, but the reality is complicated–and infinitely more tragic.
Author Bio: With an inveterate fascination in other times and places, J Tullos Hennig has managed a few lifetime professions in this world-equestrian, artist, dancer-but has never successfully managed to not be a writer. Author of an award-winning and darkly-magical Historical Fantasy series based on the legends of Robin Hood, Jen’s lifelong passion for both history and myth is given its due in Greenwode, Shirewode, and the upcoming Winterwode. When not writing, Jen teaches dance, and is quite content to reside in a wonderfully out-of-the-way cottage on the Pacific Northwest coast with long-time spouse, John.

Tthe re-releases haven’t happened yet, but pre-orders are available, and the audiobooks for both Greenwode & Shirewode are still available.
