Format: Hardcover
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 - horror, sci-fi, fantasy, 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 sea-reaving vikings, to the more exotic stuff (engineers, a psycho, a bureaucrat). The setting vary as greatly, from past, present and future, here and there, and our protagonists are all sorts of people.

Its alright, but not great. Sometimes the genre is not interesting to a particular reader (ie me, but perhaps something different for you) and some of the main characters are hard to cheer for. There is incest, murder, violence and suicide all on show. Sometimes its grin and bear it. Sometimes its wonder where the action is. There is a reason the book is called "Warriors" and not "War Stories". Often as not there is more - far more - talking than battle, and not always in a good way. If the collection had been titled "Lovers" it would have doubtless contained a bunch of old people sitting around in a retirement village musing on current events, with the odd reminiscence along the way (plus a little slash fanfic and something from the animal kingdom for variety).

I wont go through all the stories - I don't want to bore anyone to death with 20 mini-reviews. I will say that Silverberg wrote a good tale, Joe R Lansdale's story was the most fun, and GRRM's Dunk and Egg novella seemed to contain a lot of little nods to the main Ice and Fire series at the expense of developing the actual story being written, which kind of staggered along for a while and then fell in a heap, with a few bright moments along the way.

This is a very good collection of stories to find new authors to read. I recommend reading the other versions, rogues and dangerous women. However, this contains a story from the knight of the seven kingdoms which made me feel a bit cheated as I'd already read that, and the story takes up 100+ pages of this book. But that doesn't really matter because the book is worth it anyway.

I was recently introduced to George Martins "Song of Fire and Ice" books series. This book is one of a number of anthologies that contain a story that talks about characters and events that pre-date the main events of the set of books.
