George R.R. Martin ✓ Warriors BOOK Warriors of every shape size and color in these pages warriors from every epoch of human history from yesterday and today and tomorrow and from worlds that never were Some of the stories will make you sad some will make you laugh and many will keep you on the edge of your seat” Every story in this volume appears hre for the first time Included are a long novella from the world of Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin a new tale of Lord John by Diana Gabaldon an Emberverse story by SM Stirling a Forever Peace sory by Joe Haldeman and a long story of humanity at bay by David Weber Also present are original tales by David Ball Peter S Beagle Lawrence Block Gardner Dozois Robin Hobb Cecelia Holland Joe R Lansdale David Morrell Naomi Novik James Rollins Steven Saylor Robert Silverberg Carrie Vaughn Howard Waldrop and Tad WilliamsMany of these writers are bestse I primarily read The Warriors because of the short story The Mystery Knight by George RR Martin I must say the story did not disappoint It was great to see Dunk and Egg again a little older and competent The story really showed a lot of aspects that make A Song of Ice and Fire so compelling such as political angling strong characters and thrilling action seuences The story itself is challenging to review without spoilers but I'll just say this is a can't miss story for anyone who has already read other Dunk and Egg tales Some other stories that caught my attention in this book for varied reasons were The King of Norway by Cecilia Holland The Eagle and the Rabbit by Steven Saylor and The Scroll by David Ball I personally have yet to completely enjoy any Anthology The reason being with so many varied stories I find I generally only enjoy a few of them
