GENTLEMEN OF THE ROAD.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Ballantine, (2007) dj. Hardcover first edition - Set around 950 A.D. this novel follows the adventures of an odd couple: "pale, rail-thin, black-clad Zelikman, a moody, itinerant physician fond of jaunty headgear, and ex-soldier Amram, a gray-haired giant of a man as quick with a razor-tongued witticism as he is with a sharpened battle-ax. Brothers under the skin, comrades in arms, they make their rootless way through the Caucasus Mountains living as they please and surviving however they can - as blades and thieves for hire and as practiced bamboozlers.. . None of which has necessarily prepared them to be dragooned into service as escorts and defenders to a prince of the Khazar Empire." Illustrated with full-page drawings by Gary Gianni. Afterword. 204 pp. Map endpapers. ISBN: 978-0345501745.
