Wow! This book was better, and different, than expected. It isn't just another book on craft. It's barely even a reference guide. It has essays packed with valuable tips written by authors I love.

It's told from the viewpoint of the faithful warrior, which is an interesting take in fantasy--lots of bards, scholars and loveable scoundrels narrating, but not many warriors. It's an interesting viewpoint, because often his interp...

Thoughts from the halfway mark:Harold Lamb really knows how to tell a good adventure yarn. Not only that, his stories are very well researched, a rarity among pulp stories. The stories in this volume range from twenty to eighty pages, good for an evening's read. The writing is detailed but not as...
