More About the Author

Peter went to the University at Buffalo, where he studied Dungeons & Dragons, fencing, and girls. Somehow, he also managed to earn a (totally useful!) Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Art History in 1995.

Following college, Peter spent approximately 8 months managing a comic shop and pondering what to do with his life. He then went into medical publishing, squandering ten years of his physical prime sitting in a cubicle. He contented himself with writing books he never hoped to sell.

In June of 2007, his hard work and perseverance paid off, as he sold his 4th novel, THE PAINTED MAN, and in October of 2007, he left his day job to pursue writing full time.
He lives in Brooklyn NY with his wife Dani and two cats, Jinx and Max Powers.

Well, I have read both of the main novels to the series (The Painted Man and The Desert Spear) and I had read THe Great Bazaar but was mostly anticipating Brayan's Gold.

I will start with The Great Bazaar, this is a fantastic little novella, a little shorter than I would have liked but still brilliant. It answers a coupleof questions people may have been wondering from The Painted Man as well as exploring Arlen a little more in depth. I thought it an absolutely fantastic read and would recomend anybody who is a fan of the series to read this, and if you're not, then you're on Amazon so serch The Painted Man and get it! Anybody who has not read this series is seriously missing out!

Onto Brayan's Gold, now this story was absolutely brilliant, The Great Bazaar was good but this eclipses it in my opinion. It is a story about Arlen's first messenger run and had me so gripped I finished the whole Novella in less than two hours. Again I would have loved it to be a little longer, but then again if I had my wish it would be thousands of pages long. Another brilliant thing about Brayan's Gold is, if you haven't read any of the main books this wouldn't really spoil a great deal and would be a good read alone. It's also a lot more mild on the violence so perhaps even suitable to read to a young one who likes scary stories?

Either way, these two novellas are both fantastic and I recomend everybody to read them.

I am a huge fan of the first two books and these 2 short stories are a perfect filler until the third book is released. Its great to get an insight in the life of Arlen on the road as a messenger, I would happily read a whole book based his time on the road. I disagree with the other reviewer who feels they don't add anything to the story. Its wonderful to see how Arlen develops into the man we know him as. Highly recommended, think of it as a good 'Clone wars', filling in the missing years of Arlen's journey to the Painted Man.

About the Author

If you think you have previously read this collection, you just might be right. It seems to have been published in similar forms in both 2011 and 2014. For someone thinking about starting this series, which consists of four books at this point, this sampling might be a good way to get a taste for The Demon Cycle world before you invest in longer novels. This way you can see if you think it will interest you enough to begin investing your time. For those of us who have been with Arlen through his entire journey it offers a chance to understand the author more than the character. At least that’s the way it played out to me.

I liked getting to know the author better. I agree with his editor that the Arlen prologue would not have added anything to the novel (The Warded Man) that wasn’t covered later and was best left out. I’m glad Brett loves the Brianne Beaten scene, but, once again, it did not fill out the character of Leesha Paper in any way that wasn’t accomplished in other ways.

The main thing I came away with from reading this collection is that the final book in the series (The Core) is expected to be out in 2017. That’s a long time to wait.

I received an e-ARC of this novella collection through NetGalley.

Format: Hardcover
This Tachyon Publications edition of The Great Bazaar & Brayan's Gold is an excellent collection for fans of Peter V. Brett (this edition will be published in July 2015). It's a collection of two novellas, both of which are set in the world of The Demon Cycle. They offer an interesting glimpse into the author's rich fantasy world in which humanity has survived a demonic onslaught and where being outdoors after the sun has set is dangerous and deadly because of the demons.

I consider Peter V. Brett to be one of the best new fantasy authors, because he writes good and fluent entertainment for adult readers (I've enjoyed reading his Demon Cycle novels).This collection offers interesting entertainment to his fans and also to new readers who haven't read any of his novels yet, because the stories tell about Arlen's adventures.

Here's a bit of information about the stories:

Brayan's Gold:

- This is a story about Arlen's first major mission as a Messenger. In this story Arlen is sent on the mission to the mountains where he encounters bandits and a snow demon.

- This is quite an insightful and intriguing glimpse into Arlen's life.

The Great Bazaar:

- This story is set in Krasia. In this story Arlen visits the Krasians and finds a map of the village of Anoch Sun.

- According to the author's introduction to this story, it's chapter 16.5 of The Warded Man, taking place during the three-year gap between chapters 16 and 17, when Arlen is working as a Messenger traveling throughout the Free Cities.

- This is an important and interesting story, because it fills in the big gap in Arlen's life that wasn't explained in the first novel.
