Prester John and the Brigand King


After some reflection, I've decided not to seek publication for this novel, at least not at present. I have several other major projects going right now, in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, and I'd like to devote my time towards them. This novel makes a good standalone work, but ultimately it was intended to be the first piece in a longer series; a series which, at the moment, I don't have the time to pursue. So in lieu of publication, I offer it for free here on my blog for any interested readers. (However, if you read it and think you'd like to see it in a print version, please drop me a note to let me know, because I still may be able to make that happen.) I think it's a good story, and probably my best work in realistically describing a character's inward journey toward faith in Christ. Enjoy!

Matt, I have been following your blog since I met you in Calais in Sept. I have been touched by many of your articles and poems and enjoyed reading your story of Prester John. It helps bring the Bible alive to have some mental image of the setting - which you do so well. How in the world do you have the time to do all that you do??? I follow your writings from my Episcopalian/Litugical perspective and find we are in agreement on more theology than I expected. I still plan to send a package with pictures and more information on my great grandfather, Henry V Dexter and Edwin Grant, his youngest son who was born while he was pastor there. I am still amazed at seeing the church and meeting you. Nancy Dexter Wilson
