In Kings' Byways (1902)

The Wild Geese (1908)
An Eighteenth century Irish romance on land and sea during the time of George I.

A Little Wizard (1895)
A rare excursion into outright fantasy. Also called

Count Hannibal (1901)
"It is very seldom that one runs across a historical novel the plot of which is so ably sustained, the characters so strongly drawn, the local color or atmosphere so satisfactory.... 'Count Hannibal' is the strongest and most interesting novel as yet written by this popular author."--Boston Times.

The Long Night (1903)
A novel of Geneva in the 16th century.

The House of the Wolf (1887)
This, one of the first of Mr. Weyman's famous novels, deals with France in the time of the Huguenot wars, and contains a brilliant picture of the massacre of St. Bartholomew.

The Castle Inn (1898)
A tale which is full of old-world romance and adventure. It has a strong flavor of the under life in England when George the Third was young, when sign-posts served also as gibbets, when travel was by coach and highwaymen were many, when men drank deep and played high. There are plenty of stirring scenes along the way, plenty of treachery and fighting at cross-purposes which lead to intricate and dramatic situations. The heroine's charms recall Mlle. de Cocheforet in Under the Red Robe, and she proves herself a maid of spirit through all the mishaps which befall her.

A Gentleman of France (1893)
This is the first novel by which Mr. Weyman won his great reputation. It is a tale of France during the religious wars of the sixteenth century, and has long ranked as one of the most brilliant historical romances of our day.

Under the Red Robe (1894)
It was bold to take Richelieu and his time as a subject and thus to challenge comparison with Dumas's immortal musketeers; but the result justifies the boldness.... The plot is admirably clear and strong, the diction singularly concise and telling, and the stirring events are so managed as not to degenerate into sensationalism. Few better novels of adventure than this have ever been written.
