Peter David’s New Novel is Now Available

NEW YORK, NY – June 5, 2024— Author collective Crazy 8 Press announced today that acclaimed fantasy author, TV writer, and comic book icon Peter David has returned with his latest novel, Robyne of Sherwood. In this Robin Hood-inspired tale, the author’s period-set adventure sees the legendary character’s daughter take center stage.
David, whose writing credits include dozens of Star Trek novels, classic comic book runs on Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, and Aquaman, and novel adaptions of movies such as The Return of Swamp Thing, The Rocketeer, Batman Forever, Fantastic Four, and Iron Man, among many others, has been battling significant health issues. Robyne of Sherwood is his first new novel in five years.

“Peter David is one of the best fantasy writers of our generation,” said Crazy 8 Press founding member Bob Greenberger. “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.”

In Robyne of Sherwood, Robin Hood is dead, slain by the Sheriff of Nottingham, with the Merry Men cut down or scattered, and Maid Marion and their son Basil both presumed dead. During these tragic events, six-year-old Mary witnessed her father’s death—and swore vengeance. Protected by a religious order, Mary grows in skill and determination, planning for what’s still to come.

“Peter has always had a flare for combining fantasy, humor, and pathos into his fiction,” said Crazy 8 Press founding member Michael Jan Friedman. “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.”
