    Summary

    There’s not much use thinking about those times, anymore. He will always be Hob Gadling, but the biggest part of what that used to entail had stormed away on a rainy night like this one hundred and thirty years ago, and hadn’t come back.

    Hob remembers the ache in his chest in 1989. He remembers the glow of the pub, so much warmer than the pale light cutting across the alley now. He remembers staring at that empty chair for hours—first with anxiety, then with concern, and eventually with bitterness.

    “You dare suggest one such as I might need your companionship.”

    Hob had dared, and he’d paid for it.

    He’d walked out of that pub in 1989 and not looked back.

    It's 2020, and Hob Gadling is old, tired, and bitter, dancing the waltz of London's underground black market. Word has spread about something from the Burgess Estate going to auction, and who is Hob to deny himself and his team the opportunity to get their hands on it?

    Summary

    “I bet,” Hob starts speaking, and he just knows he’s going to say something he might regret later, “that you’d find my food appealing. I’ve had so much time to perfect my recipes.”

    Really?” Dream’s got that glint in his eyes. He sits up, drawing his feet back and leaning in.

    “Yes. One of these times I’ll invite you over, and I’ll cook for you,” Hob promises.

    Alright, Hob,” Dream says.

    “Deal? Damn, I’ll have to clean my place for you,” Hob laughs.

    Death sets up her emotionally constipated brother and a peasant from the middle ages. Dream doesn’t care for peasants. Hob’s enjoying the benefits of immortality. Neither of them realize just how much they’ve been in each other’s lives. A slow-burn for the ages, featuring twink himbo Dream and a surprisingly emotionally mature Hob Gadling. Be forewarned: both of them are stupid--and in love.

    Summary

    No…it couldn’t be. “Dream?”

    Large mitted paws, stretched before crossing in a regal sprawl, while acid yellow eyes appraised him in a slow, lazy blink. “Hello, Hob.”

    Or the one where Dream visits Hob as a big fluffy kitty in need of a good ear scratch

    Summary

    The life and times of one Robert Gadling.
    --

    Excerpt:

    Hob ought to take the hint; he knows he should. A crystal-clear rejection of his friendship. Message received. But Hob Gadling didn’t survive plague and war, weather years of hardships and heartbreak and Thatcher-era Britain, without a profound sense of stubbornness about him.

    Unyielding hope, however foolish it seemed sometimes, got him here. It’s why he’s still alive.
