Publisher's Summary

"The Betyar and the Magus" was published in the anthology Blackguards: Tales of Assassins, Mercenaries, and Rogues.

About this story, author S. R. Cambridge says, "When writing, I often take inspiration from real history, especially the history that often isn't read about that often. 'The Betyár and the Magus' and the characters in it came to be because I started to read a lot about the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, a war for independence by Hungary against the Austrian Empire. Hungary was the victor in a series of early battles and looked like it was winning until the Austrian Empire allied with Russia for help. Russia, a formidable power at the time, brought it all to an end in short order. So I began to build a sort of historical-fantasy alternate universe out of the revolution and what happened before and after. 'The Betyár and the Magus' takes place six months after the end of the revolution."
