Nathan Makaryk is a man of many hats: author, playwright, director, and theater owner. The Legend of Robin Hood, one of his own plays, is the basis for his debut novel Nottingham. Bryan Cogman, Co-Executive Producer and Writer of HBO’s Game of Thrones called Nottingham, “the most pleasurable reading experience I’ve had since first discovering George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire.” The familiar story of Robinhood, Nottingham, and Sherwood Forest is rewritten, given a fresh look through the lives of six people: Arable, a servant girl with a secret; Guy of Gisbourne, a beleaguered guard captain; Elena Gamwell, an ambitious thief; Marion, a noblewoman working for change; and William and Robin, two soldiers running from their pasts. As England languishes, bankrupt and on the verge of anarchy, the lives of these six individuals become intertwined, sparking a strange story that slowly grows, becoming legend.
