I’d like this website, together with my blog, to act as virtual footnotes to the creation of The Dark Apostle series. So, here are some of my favorite online resources, as well as a bibliography of many works I consulted when researching the books.

My research takes place in several stages, beginning with filling up my brain with the subject matter (in this case, medieval history, medicine and magic) until it bubbles over with story ideas. Then I’ll do specific research that narrows down the topics. While I’m writing, I frequently refer to my books or online resources to fill in the key details.

Some interesting groups to know about:

    The home of the Society for the Public Understanding of the Middle Ages,
    a newer scholarly organization
    For the study of the history of magic, also publishes a series of scholarly works
    translating and interpretting information about magic in the Middle Ages
    Association Villard d’Honnecourt for Interdisciplinary Study of Medieval Technology,
    Science and Art.  Check out their links page.
    home of the Society for Creative Anachronism, for those interested in a participatory
    version of the Middle Ages
