If you want more, read "From the Heart of Darkness" and "Vettius and his Friends". Some stories from these 2 books are in "Night and Demons".
If you've been put off Drake by the static characters in the Leary space operas or the repetitive plots of his recent fantasy, read this to see what he can do if he tries.
David Drake is one of the best writers of our generation. The first story of his I ever read was "Dragon's Teeth" back in Sword against Darkness back in 77 or 78.
I was an impressionable teen, with a love of Robert E Howard and friends.. and when I read David Drake I was blown away. I have since been a huge fan, and read as
much of his stuff as possible.
His short stories will grab you, this book is excellent.
One beef? The cover was a bit garish, I like books to look like Michael Whelan or Frank Frazetta did them, but hey, to each his own.
Highly recommended ( and don't judge the book by its cover :-)
