Glen Cook has authored dozens of fantasy and science fiction novels, including The Black Company series, The Garrett Files, and The Tyranny of the Night. He lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
This book is a collection of short stories from that series, and all of them are really great.
"Silverheels" (Witchcraft & Sorcery, 1971) was slightly revised to make it a Dread Empire story, but is still about a daring kitten.
If you are old fan of Glen Cook and have missed this or the Dread Empire series I highly recommend it.
The Dread Empire books are very entertaining and well written. I love the way each story is seen from more than one view.Published 18 months ago by GreenEyes
