En garde! This site is dedicated to the historical adventures of sword-wielding heroes: in short, swashbucklers! Here your host, Lawrence Ellsworth, posts news and reviews of swashbuckler stories, movies, and games, provides previews and historical notes for his books, both available and forthcoming, and also gives you links to merchandise where you can find them for yourself. We hope to make your go-to site for all things swashbuckler!
