Warriors 3 is the third paperback offering from the heavyweight original hardback. It's a series I have really enjoyed but perhaps this is the weakest of the three. Seven offerings here, all on the theme of the warrior:

Robin Hobb shares a tale of Romans in the Punic Wars, uncompromising and with a very slight nod to her fantasy roots and her affection for serpents!

David Morrell picks the interesting subject of the French Foreign legion in a tale of loyalty and honour in WW2, not bad but I though the end lacked a certain `something'.

Carrie Vaughn takes the subject of female pilots during WW2 and provides an interesting story with a good variation on the traditional male warrior.

Diana Gabaldon gives us a novella of "Lord John Grey in the New World" - I had never heard of Lord John Grey and thought this was a pretty awful story, by far the weakest in the book and I did struggle to finish it.

Joe R Lansdale provides a story of the Wild west and black cavalrymen, clever and witty this was my favourite in the book and will encourage me to seek more of Mr Lansdale.

Lawrence Block's tale is a dark one and is of revenge and based on a back-story that might make uncomfortable reading for some.

James Rollins has the most unusual character. A fighting dog. It's moving and clever and a great twist on what we have come to expect from the series.

Overall a mix of content and not as consistent as previous books. Not bad, but not great either.

I really enjoyed all three of these books; just a shame you had to buy three to get the lot in paperback, whereas most similar anthologies ("Rogues" etc ) are available in one large collection.

By Manly Reading TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 2 Aug. 2011
Format: Mass Market Paperback
To be fair, I don't have this book; I have the hardcover which has been split into three paperbacks. The contents of the paperbacks are not in the same order they are in the hardcover, and nor are they arranged by genre or anything else I can see.

First of all, this is not a fantasy anthology, despite GRRM being associated with it. If you want one of those, go try Swords and Dark Magic. This is multi-genre - sci-fi, fantasy, and historical fiction, with the common theme of being a "warrior" of some sort or other. This is pretty broadly defined, with everything from regular soldiers to the more exotic stuff (an engineer, a psycho, a transport pilot). The setting varies as greatly, from past, present and future, here and there, and our protagonists are all sorts of people. It is "Warriors" too and not "War Stories": there is often more talking than action here.

I have to say though that the best story out of the whole hardback anthology, Lansdale's "Soldierin'" is in this volume: its good, fast paced fun. Robin Hobb has written an-almost historical Roman story, save for a giant snake/dragon/crocodile, the bones of which surely have never been found. The heart of Hobb's story though is honour, and there is enough action to keep the story moving along, although much of it is in flashback. The remaining entires are alright, but all have flaws: Gabaldon's could be summed as the amourous adventures of an English gent in pre-Revolutionary America, and its witty enough but not much actually happens. Vaughn's entry is about the distaff side of flying in WWII, but not really about warriors per se, while Block's entry is about child abuse, and contains no one who is any kind of warrior at all.

HASH(0xa0256828) out of 5 stars An entertaining and well-written collection of stories 21 Aug. 2011
By Karen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
First of all, I have to say I'm pleased that the actual color of the cover of WARRIORS 3 is a sort of coral. Far more attractive, in my opinion, than the bright pinkish-purple you see in the Amazon cover picture! So if you're put off by the colors shown here, go take a look at it in the bookstore and decide for yourself.

This volume contains most of the stories that I liked from the WARRIORS hardcover edition. Here are my impressions:

1) "The Triumph", by Robin Hobb. I didn't care for this story at all.

2) "Soldierin'", by Joe R. Lansdale. A humorous look at the Buffalo Soldiers, a troop of black cavalry fighting Indians on the American frontier, circa 1870. I liked the narrator's cynical outlook on life, and his dry wit.

3) "Clean Slate", by Lawrence Block. An incest survivor turns serial killer, in an attempt to wipe out the memories of her father's sexual abuse. Chilling, but very well-written.

4) "The Girls from Avenger", by Carrie Vaughn. This is the story of Em, one of a group of female pilots during World War II known as the Women's Air Service Pilots (WASP). When one of her fellow female pilots is killed in an accident, Em battles the sexism and condescension of her male colleagues and the men in the chain of command in order to learn the truth of what happened to her friend. A well-written story, one of my favorites in the collection.

5) "The Pit", by James Rollins. Dog-lovers will find this story disturbing, although it has a positive ending. The story of a dog stolen from its suburban home and forced to compete in a series of savage dog-fights in which losing means death. Told from the dog's point of view. (If you want to read a much lighter and more enjoyable story from the point of view of a dog, try THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN, by Garth Stein. I loved that book, and I'm not even a dog-owner.)

6) "My Name is Legion", by David Morrell. A tale about the French Foreign Legion. Interesting, but not one of my favorites.

7) "The Custom of the Army", by Diana Gabaldon. If you're a fan of Diana Gabaldon's books, especially the character of Lord John Grey, I think you'll enjoy this story. At 93 pages, it's by far the longest story in this collection, which allows Gabaldon room to tell a more complex story. It's also highly entertaining (the electric-eel party that opens this story is hilarious), well-written, and full of the sort of historical detail that fans of the OUTLANDER and Lord John books have come to expect. The bulk of the story takes place in Quebec in 1759, during the Seven Years War. Highly recommended! (Please note, if you're looking forward to Diana Gabaldon's novel, The Scottish Prisoner: A Novel (Lord John), which will be released on November 29, 2011, it might be a good idea to read "The Custom of the Army" first.)

That's fine in and of itself, but in a volume called "Warriors" it feels incongruous.

Female readers may get more out of this volume than I did: its noteworthy that nearly all the female content of the hardback is repeated here (save only Novik in 2 and Cecilia Holland in 1) and views may reasonably differ about the suitability of content for a given title.

Truly a 3-star collection.
HASH(0xa0260dd4) out of 5 stars Three stories stood out for me 17 Oct. 2011
By JYK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"The Triumph" by Robin Carr - I liked that she took the little known facts about Marcus Atillius Regulus, especially his death at the hands of Carthagians, and managed to create a vivid portrait of the brutal life during the Punic Wars.

"Clean Slate" by Lawrence Block - It didn't quite fit, except for a tenuous association stemming from the woman's father's childhood nickname for her. It's well-written but disturbing as it's told from the point of the view of a woman who is psychologically damaged.

"The Pit" by James Rollins - It's not easy to read as any dog lover would feel outrage at the abuse heaped on an innocent puppy to turn him into a vicious fighter. It does have a happy ending, and I just wish the end was a bit longer. Really brings home why we should stop animal abuse of all kinds, including dog fighting.

I bought this paperback for the Novella, The Custom of the Army, written by Diana Gabaldon (the Outlander's books). This is a Lord John story and, as far as I can tell, this may be the only way it is available at this time. The story was excellent.
