I borrowed this book from one of the writers, and, man, what a great read.
Eric Turowski
I was originally interested in this anthology of 21 tales because it includes a story The Rotten Bones Rattle by one of my favorite authors C. L. Werner.
Earl L. Morris
You will enjoy almost every story in the book and they each have a distinct flavor so you should find quite a few gems in this treasure trove.

Good Book!
The stories set in the mountains and the frozen wastes were definitely my favorites. I don't like heat and humidity in real life and I guess that carries over to fiction.

There is a lot of variety in the anthology and many good to great stories.

A particular favorite character is the 'little grandfather' in the story "Vasily and the Beast Gods" by Daniel R. Robichaud. The story may be based on Russian Folktales although I do not know if the little grandfather is taken directly from Russian Myth.

The other stories run more to the vein of fantasy with more gore and grit then you find in folklore; more sword than sorcery yet there is plenty of sorcery. "Thunder Canyon" by Jeff Draper is one of best tales in the anthology for me. It is definitely pulp sword and sorcery worth reading.

You will enjoy almost every story in the book and they each have a distinct flavor so you should find quite a few gems in this treasure trove.

I was originally interested in this anthology of 21 tales because it includes a story The Rotten Bones Rattle by one of my favorite authors C. L. Werner. Upon reading all the way through the anthology there some other stories that stand out from the rest though all the shorts are quite good reads.

Serpents beneath the Ice by Carl Walmsley
Is the story of an adventurer of renown who hires guides to hunt the dreaded beasts. The culture of the guides, reminiscent of the Inuits, has peaked my interest enough to want to hear more of them. The monsters that threaten them are believable enough to make sense within the context of the story. The story does an excellent job of gripping the reader, pulling him in and not letting go.

Black Diamond Sands by Lois Tilton
Is the story of a pupil/slave that is sent on a mission to spy the secret of the enemy wizards. Slow to start but ending all to quickly this piece left me with the feeling and knowledge that Lois Tilton is definitely an author to watch for. It is one of those stories where you definitely appreciate the ending, thinking to yourself "that was good".

Vasily and the Beast Gods by Daniel R. Robichaud
Is the story of Vasily and the quest for the vast treasure of the gods with ultimate power. Though he would rather be back at home cooking venison. He must defeat Little Grandfather husband to BabaYaga an eater of flesh and invulnerable to mortal weapons, but not to mortal minds, and win through to save the fair maiden(questionable).

Yaggoth-Voor A Tale of Mortlock the Footman by Bruce Durham
A cross between Call of Cthulhu and Pirates of the Carribean. Well worth the read.

Beyond the Reach of his Gods by Brian Ruckley
Titanic sized snake. Nuff said!

I borrowed this book from one of the writers, and, man, what a great read. I have yet to find a bad story, and I'm almost all the way through (I'm sure she wants it back, like, yesterday).
This is sword & sorcery done right, whether it's from "name brand" authors like Andrew J. Offutt & Richard K. Lyon and Lois Tilton, or writers who are just cutting their teeth, like A. Kiwi Courters and Jason Thummel, there is an energy to the stories that harken back to the pulp roots of the genre.
Usually, you get two or three good stories in an anthology. Not so with Rage. The stories, separated by environment, have an organic flow to them, so that each seems to fit naturally and seamlessly in place.
This is a very exciting collection of a genre that is near and dear to my heart and I cannot recommend it enough.
