Short stories have become the latest thing for writers, a way to advertise their wares, a way to showcase their talent, a way to write about side characters whom the fans love and a way to write and publish those tales that they don't have time to write a full novel about. There is no defined pattern and no right way, although advertising comes lowest on the quality level IMHO.
Thankfully Robert Fabbri doesn't appear to be doing that, a taster but mainly a side character loved by fans and the author seem to be the driver.
Racing Factions is a fantastic tale following Magnus and the crossroads brotherhood. Someone makes the very big mistake of crossing Magnus and what unfolds is a very elaborate sting / plan of revenge. The plot is brilliantly formulated into a winding plot with surprises, action, intrigue and revenge. Robert Fabbri gets better and better, making a side character feel like he deserves a full novel if not a full series.
One thought struck me while reading about the racing factions of Rome, they were the original hooligans, long before football people fought over their support of a team, not based on any allegiance except a sports team. Its interesting to see it portrayed and also to see that society has developed in some ways and not in so many others.

Highly recommend this tale and all of Fabbri's books

A nifty short story, devoted to one story of the chariot and horse racing skullduggery of Ancient Rome. Cracks along at a good pace and had me alternately wishing such racing was still in existence to be thrilled by and being horrified at the vicious tactics employed to bring down rival teams. Fabbri engages well, and this makes a very amusing addendum to the Falco series by Lindsey Davis, being similar in tone.

A good short read. This is the first Robert Fabbri book I have read and I quite enjoyed it. Wouldn't say it was gripping, but made me feel I should read more of this Author. So have now started on the Vespasian series

After just recently getting into the Vespasian series I Chanced upon the short stories, having just finished book 4 and waiting of book 5 I thought I'd buy it to fill the gap! What a book, brilliant from the first page and helps to see characters from the series in their own stories.
Highly recommended

Fabri clearly struggles with Vespesian as a central character who was not actually a very nice man, for example the fate of the children of Sejanus. The stories about the cross roads brotherhood don't suffer from this issue for Fabri and as a result the writing is much more fluid and a better read.

I am fed up with Robert Fabbri producing these 'tasters' and would really love to read a full bodied novel on the underworld of Ancient Rome because there are some wierd and wonderful characters there. I will undoubtedly buy the next one and have the same disappointment when they end much too soon. Great read.

This is a short story involving one of the main characters in the author's Vesparian series.
It is a great read, and adds to the background from the main stories. It is well thought out, well plotted, and an easy read.

very well written as all the normally length vespasian novels are and and a nicely knitted story line, if you like historical fiction then you'll love the vespasian books and this is a good short story. if your new to to the vespasian books I recommend reading them in order starting with the first short story
