The Bastards and the Knives is combination of two fantasy stories by Scott Lynch and is chronologically the first book of the Gentleman Bastard series. Containing "The Mad Baron's Mechanical Attic" and "The Choir of Knives."[1][2][3]

These two novellas tell the story of how Locke, Jean and the other Gentlemen Bastards acquired the Austershalin brandy that was so important in The Lies of Locke Lamora, and how they managed to avoid being killed by the elite assassins known as the Choir of Knives.[1][2][3]
