Product Description

About the Author

Neal Stephenson is primarily a fiction author and has received several awards for his works in speculative fiction. His more popular books include Snow Crash, The Diamond Age, Cryptonomicon, The Baroque Cycle, and Anathem.

Erik Bear lives and writes in Seattle, Washington. He has written for a bestselling video game and is currently working on several comic book series.

Greg Bear is the author of more than thirty books, spanning the thriller, science fiction, and fantasy genres, including Blood Music, Eon, The Forge of God, Darwin’s Radio, City at the End of Time, and Hull Zero Three. His books have won numerous international prizes, have been translated into more than twenty-two languages, and have sold millions of copies worldwide.

Joseph Brassey lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and two cats. He teaches medieval fighting techniques to members of the armed forces. The Mongoliad is his first published fiction.

Nicole Galland is the author of I, Iago, as well as The Fool's Tale, Revenge of the Rose, and Crossed: A Tale of the Fourth Crusade. An award-winning screenwriter, she is married to actor Billy Meleady and, unlike all her handsome and talented co-writers, spends no time at all hitting people with sticks in Seattle.

Mark Teppo is the author of the Codex of Souls urban fantasy series as well as the hypertext dream narrative The Potemkin Mosaic.

Cooper Moo spent five minutes in Mongolia in 1986 before he had to get back on the train—he never expected to be channeling Mongolian warriors. In 2007 Cooper fought a Chinese long-sword instructor on a Hong Kong rooftop—he never thought the experience would help him write battle scenes. In addition to being a member of The Mongoliad writing team, Cooper has written articles for various magazines. His autobiographical piece "Growing Up Black and White," published in the Seattle Weekly, was awarded Social Issues Reporting article of the year by the Society of Professional Journalists. He lives in Issaquah, Washington, with his wife, three children, and numerous bladed weapons. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you are looking for a vast 'sword and sandal epic', one on a scale so great that it required several authors in collaboration to create it, then this is for you. The team of writers seem to have relished laying on the detailed colour and characterisation and action, and confusing us with a plethora of names. Fortunately, there is a reasonable fabric of interwoven story underlying it all.

However, having read the previous two books I found this one became too much of the same old trudge, and eventually it was boring. It has taken me ages to finish it - always a bad sign when other things are tending to distract me away from the book in hand. To help keep up my interest in it I even had some fun trying to work out who had produced which individual bits and which were joint efforts.

Perhaps the writing was becoming too self-indulgent, maybe there was an imperative to tie-off the loose ends created in the first two books, or maybe it was getting out of hand and someone decided to haul on the reins to bring it back in check. Am I being too critical? But looking back on it, I think it could possibly have stood on its own better without the earlier books already having given us so much about the many background threads in the tapestry.

If it is the kind of fare you are keen on then there is plenty in it to satisfy the hunger, but if you are not an enthusiast for the genre I would suggest giving it a miss.

There are also some short 'SideQuests' such as Sinner, but for a full appreciation of the sequence enthusiasts should first read;
The Mongoliad: Book One
The Mongoliad: Book Two

This is the third book in the `Mongoliad' sequence. The series was initially written collaboratively between the various authors, with each chapter being published individually on the internet, a sort of cross between The Lord of the Rings and Wikipedia. The text in the print editions is a slightly revised, "author's preferred" version of that originally published online. There's a large stable of writers producing chapters for The Mongoliad, ranging from debut authors through big names like Neal Stephenson and Greg Bear. Interestingly, it's quite tricky to guess which authors have had a hand in which chapters.

This third part of the Mongoliad is an absolute doorstop of a novel - it's roughly the size of both preceding volumes squished together. As with the previous two volumes, the reader is switched between a variety of character viewpoints. Most of these will be familiar from previous books in the series, and progress and conclude existing storylines, rather than introducing new characters or concepts.

Structurally, the text will be familiar to anyone who has read the novels that come before - bite-sized chapters from a character's viewpoint allow the reader to pick up and put down the book easily - it's harder to get tired of a character when the next viewpoint change is only a few pages away. As noted above, the authorial voices manage to merge together almost seamlessly, providing a consistent - and good - narrative experience. The short chapters also seem to work well with the hectic narrative pace, driving the reader to get through "just one more page" before putting the book down.

Don't believe the 5 star reviews! Don't assume that Neal Stephenson or Greg Bear actually wrote a single word of this fan boy failure of a committee trilogy. Pity me - It's Book 3 I'm railing against! What a slog. Here are my issues:

- Writing in committee will never catch on, because it doesn't work
- A bunch of re-enactors and martial artists have been allowed to write under a better banner than they deserve, warping it's style and impact. They know a lot about how a blade is used, but not on human flesh (thankfully!); and lack the gifts of a Cornwell, Abercrombie or Gemmell when making things up
- Religion. 1241 is made to be like the year 241! Or perhaps 941? The only paganism left in Europe by that time was that of the Prussians, not left overs from Classicism and Norse mythology. So, ironically, the only ACTUAL pagan beliefs current on mainland Europe in 1241 are ignored in favour of made-up tosh
- Anachronistic language eg `input'. No they didn't have laptops!
- The assassination team story moves at a much slower pace than the other strands - boring
- There is no grasp of whether it is meant to be historical or fantasy. I plump for the latter due to the tenuous grasp of the actual events, how military orders worked or medieval combat. NO, NO, NO, - there is and was no such thing as 'Western martial arts'. (I'm not denying that martial training existed, just that untrue and juvenile nineteenth century conceptions of Eastern martial arts have any bearing in other cultures and societies, particularly past ones. The only one I might give room to is quarterstaff fighting - and you see SO much of that in modern sword fetish nonsense.)
- Why does something called The Mongoliad have so little from their perspective?
