You won't get left hanging. The Misplaced Mercenaries Series is complete!

“A puckish, free-wheeling take on the sword-and-sorcery genre.” — KIRKUS REVIEWS

“This is my kind of fantasy.” — ERIC FLINT

And check out our shiny new Misplaced Adventures novels.

Six original series by five elegant new authors (and one crusty old one) writing entirely unique books in the Mercenaries’ world you love!

Get started with Last Night at the Jolly Chicken, the anthology that introduces all the new characters in their own short stories!
