Peter David Returns with Epic New Novel ‘Robyne of Sherwood’


Crazy 8 Press recently released Peter David’s latest novel, Robyne of Sherwood, an exciting new addition to the legendary Robin Hood lore. Featuring Robin Hood’s daughter at the forefront, the book marks David’s first new novel in five years.

Robyne of Sherwood promises a riveting tale set against the backdrop of medieval England. After the death of Robin Hood at the hands of the Sheriff of Nottingham, the story follows the path of vengeance undertaken by his daughter, Mary. Now grown and skilled under the protection of a religious order, Mary sets out to fulfill her vow of revenge.

In recent years, David has faced significant health challenges, making this novel’s release all the more poignant. Purchasing Robyne of Sherwood not only allows readers to enjoy a masterful tale but also supports David during this difficult time.

“Peter David is one of the best fantasy writers of our generation,” said Robert Greenberger, a founding member of Crazy 8 Press. “He’s been out of action lately, so it’s a joyous moment for everyone who knows Peter and loves his work to welcome Robyne of Sherwood into the world. Peter, as always, is at the top of his game.”

The story unfolds in a period marked by loss and determination. After witnessing her father’s death as a child, Mary is driven by a quest for justice. The novel explores her growth into a formidable force, poised to confront those who wronged her family.

“Peter has always had a flair for combining fantasy, humor, and pathos into his fiction,” added Michael Jan Friedman, another founding member of Crazy 8 Press. “Even when he puts his characters and, by extension, readers through the wringer, there’s a gentle heartbeat underneath. To see another Peter David novel come to light is pure magic.”

David often humorously describes his occupation as “Writer of Stuff,” a nod to his extensive and varied career. His writing is known for blending real-world issues with humor, popular culture references, and elements of metafiction and self-reference. He has earned multiple awards for his work, including a 1992 Eisner Award, a 1993 Wizard Fan Award, a 1996 Haxtur Award, a 2007 Julie Award, and a 2011 GLAAD Media Award.

Robyne of Sherwood is now available for purchase on Amazon.com.
