Fresh Hells: Tales of Basil & Moebius (A Basil and Moebius Adventure)
Alaric Moebius and Basil Fox are two lovable scoundrels looking to make a quick fortune. Basil is a former SAS trooper turned Queen’s Guard by day and thief by night. Moebius is an Oxford-educated charmer with a knack for getting into trouble. Together they chase adventure under the patronage of “The Collector,” a mysterious billionaire with a taste for rare and valuable supernatural objects of the occult.
This anthology collects 10 new short stories that further explore the duo’s history and adventures (both together and apart), as well as unraveling some of the mystery surrounding recognizable secondary characters and their ultimate fate in the Collector’s scheme. Written by fan-favorite sci-fi and fantasy authors RICHARD LEE BYERS (Forgotten Realms), TIMOTHY ZAHN (Star Wars), CHRIS A. JACKSON (Shadowrun, Blood Sea Tales), and ERIK SCOTT DE BIE (Shadowbane, Forgotten Realms)!
“When I first heard about the concept for the heroes in Devil’s Handshake, I thought it was going to be very cool. It is. In the best tradition of the buddy comedy, Devil’s Handshake combines derring-do and witty repartee to create a team that the reader wants to join. Think Artemus Gordon and James West, or Fritz Lieber’s Fafhrd and Gray Mouser. Now tweak the setting and have a blast.” – R.A. SALVATORE (New York Times best-selling author)
“A delightful romp mixing pulpish delight with bold, eye-catching graphics and instantly likable characters. Old school fun for the 21st century!”- GUILLERMO DEL TORO (Director/Producer, PACIFIC RIM, HELLBOY, PAN’S LABYRINTH)
