More About the Author

Gaie Sebold began writing shortly after learning to read, and has produced a large number of words, many of them different. Her debut novel introduced brothel-owning ex-avatar of sex and war, Babylon Steel (Solaris, 2012); the sequel, Dangerous Gifts, came out in February 2013 and a steampunk novel, Shanghai Sparrow, is due in 2014. She also has short stories in a number of current anthologies including the David Gemmell Memorial Anthology 'Legends' and the World War Cthulhu anthology.
Gaie is a member of London-based critique group T Party Writers. She has worked as a cleaner, secretary, till-monkey, stage-tour-manager, editor, and charity administrator. She reads a lot, gardens a lot, and sometimes runs around in woods hitting people with latex weapons. She lives with writer David Gullen and a paranoid cat.
Events and short fiction from Babylon Steel's world can be found at and Gaie also blogs at

3.0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Bag 5 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A collection of shorts all set in the fantasy genre in appreciation of "Legend" David Gemmell. Some are good, some are not worth picking up if the price is down as a story will fill in a twenty to thirty minute read during a commute to work. Nothing special.

Would liked to have had more Joe Abercrombe. Otherwise, enjoyed the different writers that I haven`t
read before. Good entertainment however. Would recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for finding new authors 28 Dec 2013
By Simon Casey - Published on

All in all a good read however some of the stories were lacking in finished polish and others were not my cup of tea. I would thoroughly recommend it to those looking for new authors of fantasy and who enjoyed Gemmell's books

3.0 out of 5 stars two stories worth their salt 14 Nov 2013
By Bordeaux Dogue - Published on

Gaie Sebold's and Abercrombie's...
What the entire collection has to do with David Gemmell, or his legacy, or spirit, I will never understand.

I give the whole effort three stars. One dedicated, solely, to Gemmell, that most skilled and awseome story teller, so greatly missed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great group of stories 21 Mar 2014

Every story was very good; some were from authors that I have read before and others are from authors that I would like to read more of. They all had very interesting plots.

This book was bought as a gift. I can't review it. I haven't heard from my grandchild about it yet, probably won't.
