Have tried to get this book for some time now. At last its in print!

Onto the book, its very good. Very humerous in parts, macabre humour in others. Very readable, similar style to the Malazan books although the chapters are a lot shorter. Does not detract from the story though as each chapter deals with each character in turn.

If you like the Malazan series of books this would complement them very well.

Let's face it - I wouldn't have bought this book if I wasn't obsessed with the Malazan Empire, but within this context it has actually increased my obsession and expanded the entire experience of the wider series. My enjoyment was at least partly due to the fact that I see these stories as 'The travails of Emancipor Reese' as all 3 tales allow you to get into his head, while they continue to raise more questions than answers about the main duo. The stories are supported with an enjoyable cast of extras and hint at a much wider and tantalising world. I was also pleased to find that the shorter version lessened the complex philosophical leanings of the characters found within the main Malazan story arcs, as in the context of shorter stories they would have hindered far more than they do in the main sequence. The shorter lengths also mean the pace is faster, and with limited POV characters they still make quite complete reads.

I read them deliberately between a read of 'Deahdhouse Gates' and 'Memories of Ice'. In more obsessive state now I would read the first two tales then, and the third after 'Memories of Ice'.

Bauchelain and Korbal Broach novellas sold as a collected stories volume made it achievable to read 3 tales I was reluctant to get individually, as the cost probably decreased, and my enjoyment increased by the ability to read all three so close together. They are limited to reading within genre fiction but highly enjoyable despite that (and if you're awaiting 'The Crippled God' too eagerly, then you probably should read this collection, as anyone that obsessed with a series should buy as much of it as possible!).

If you are a fun of Steven Erikson you are going to enjoy this book. It has its classic writting and he uses much more of his black humor than we are used too. It does not have the usuall deapth of the Malazan books its more like a black "funny side" of Erikson's world evry day life, the fact that includes deamons spirits and horrible deaths should not surprize anyone.
All in all i would say its something to read while waitting the next book of the fallen and not a main course book.

By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 15 Aug. 2010
Format: Paperback
Fans of Erikson have for years been chomping at the bit to get their hands on this offering. Why? Well it was originally published by PS Publishing as a limited edition Novella and became so hard to get without parting with major readies that many a reader was left out in the cold. Luckily enough this has now been re-released in the UK by Steven's publisher Bantam and as such gives the tale an availability once only dreamed of. The major question is, does it live up to the fans hopes?

The short answer is yes. It builds upon the characters that appeared in the early Malazan Book of the Fallen, it gives more flavour for the world, and if you're a fan, you're more than likely getting impatient waiting for the final part in the first series. (Steven has been signed for more Malazan titles.) It's beautifully priced, it's available for all and with it being a collection, you know damn well that whilst those who purchased the other ones in the original printing, they're currently going cold turkey waiting for that final title whilst you can bask in back catalogue. However this said, don't read this title if you've missed this series, in particular the earlier novels. If you've only just made book three, then you can probably get away with it.
