As a teen my dad threw a book to me and ordered me to read it. Since then ive read everything barclay has released and havent faulted anything. Absolutely love barclays approach to fantasy. Theres something brutishly british about his writing that appeals to me and would recommend his work to anyone. Those that I already have introduced it to have agreed with me.
Vault of deeds is a great short story that I would advise to anyone who wants to get into barclays series. Brilliant humor, great little story and fantastic characters.
I am completely biased. I love james barclays work.
