The Monster Specialist by Edward S. Louis

The Monster Specialist Sir Severus le Brewse, among the least known of King Arthur's Round Table knights, is preferred by nature, disposition, and training to fight against monsters rather than other knights. After youthful adventures of errantry with dragons, trolls, vampires, and assorted beasts, Severus joins the brilliant sorceress Lilava to face the Chimaera in The Greatest Monster Battle of All Time to free her folk from an age-old curse. But their adventures don't end there; together they meet elves and magicians, friends and foes; they join in the fight to save Camelot and even walk the Grey Paths of the Dead. With a mix of Malory, a touch of Tolkien, and a hint of humor, The Monster Specialist chronicles a tale of courage, tenacity, honor, and love.

His journeys to and from work and his evening visits to the Inn led him along Tatty Walk, a narrow lane, past a row of cottages. This was a pleasant place on sunny days but could be quite creepy after dark.

In the Spring of 1248, Shire Reckoning, there were suddenly rumours of something terrible seen in and around the village. Ossie tried to laugh at the whole business, but soon his journeys took on the quality of nightmares........
