The Ghosts of Sherwood: brag sheet

June 8, 2020

The Ghosts of Sherwood has been racking up some pretty cool accolades:

PW has it as a Pick of the Week for June 8

On Amazon, it’s a Best Science Fiction & Fantasy Book of the Month

And it’s an Apple Books Best Book for June, including this really excellent review:  “Carrie Vaughn’s swashbuckling novella is an absolute delight. She takes time to flesh out each character even as she keeps the adventures coming. We particularly adored 10-year-old Eleanor Locksley, a quiet but endlessly resourceful heroine—a righteous antidote to the damsel in distress. Robin Hood has been depicted as everything from a mustachioed archer to a cartoon fox, but there’s something endearing about seeing him as a devoted fortysomething husband and father.”

I’m fanning myself, this is so encouraging. I seriously didn’t know if anyone would like my lighthearted adventuring medieval family sitcom, but maybe that was a niche that needed filling.

And based on reviews, Eleanor is clearly going to need to star in her own story. I have some ideas…
