More About the Author

George R.R. Martin sold his first story in 1971 and has been writing professionally since then. He spent ten years in Hollywood as a writer-producer, working on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and television pilots that were never made. In the mid '90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he's allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.

This has The Mystery Knight in it. If you're looking for the Dunk and Egg stories from ASOIAF, get this, Legends II:Dragon, Sword and King and Legends: Stories by the Masters of Modern Fantasy if you want all three D&E stories.

Warriors was originally issued as a very large and expensive hardback. The contents have been broken down into two (or three?) bite size chunk paperbacks and this is the first.
George RR Martin explains in his introduction the joy of the 'spinning rack' at his corner store where genres were mixed and he discovered many great authors. This anthology is like the spinning rack, the common theme is that of a warrior of somekind, but after that premise, all bets are off..
The six stories here are by Joe Haldeman (with a SF tale from the world of Forever War), Steven Saylor (with a Roman tale set at the time of the sack of Carthage), Tad Williams (a story of an interplanetary assassin), Robert Silverberg (a fantasy story of the few remaining soldiers guarding a great barrier) and finally George RR Martin (a novella featuring Dunk and Egg from his Song of Ice and Fire series).
I enjoyed them all, the writing was superb and the stories did vary, perhaps if you don't like Sci-fi or fantasy then these may not be for you, but I enjoyed the mix and it was hard to pick a favourite, which is always a good sign. Great authors, strong writing and a fun mix of tales - what's not to like?

I purchased this for 'The Mystery Knight' by George R. R. Martin as I am sure many others will. This is a remarkable conclusion to the 'Dunk and Egg' precursor to 'A Song of Ice and Fire.'
The other stories in here are good ... war stories and stories of heroism, but not fulfilling for a light-hearted fantasy reader such as myself. However, $7.19 was none to bad a deal to read the stories I was so desperately in need of. :P

Exactly what I expected when ordered. This is the third of George R.R. Martin's Dunk & Egg stories, set in the fantasy world of A Song of Ice and Fire which is the crowning jewel of the book. Can't wait for more stories. Plus, you also get an assortment of stories by different well-known writers of contemporary and modern fantasy.

This is volume 1 (of three) of a series of short stories on warriors across the ages that had been edited by Georges R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois. There are six stories from Robert Silverberg, Joe Haldeman, Tad Williams, Cecilia Holland, Steven Saylor and Georges R R. Martin himself. The topics covered range across several genres: historical fiction, fantasy and science fiction in particular.

One of the stories – Defenders of the Frontiers by Robert Silverberg – seemed to be loosely inspired by Dino Buzzati’s “Tartar steppe”, with the muck depleted garrison of a frontier outpost waiting for an enemy that never comes and wondering what to do.

Georges Martin’s story (“the Mystery Knight”) takes place in Westeros and is portrayed as a “Tale of the Seven Kingdoms”. IT is however well before Games of Thrones at a time where the Targaryens are still on the throne but there are no more dragons alive, only a few eggs. Interestingly, the hero and his servant seem to be loosely modelled on Don Quichotte and Sancho Pansa.

Another tells the story of an assassin that is trained and mentally conditioned by a theocracy before being sent on what turns out to be a suicide mission to kill the leader of their enemies. Except that things turn out to be much more complicated than that… (Tad Williams);

The Eagle and the Rabbit is a rather awful story and contest of wills between a Carthaginian prisoner and slave and a very sadistic Roman. It takes place after the final destruction of Carthage

King of Norway is a Viking story with lots of “blood and thunder” and a superb battle at sea, or rather in a fjord, based on a historical one, even if the heroes are fictitious (by Cecilia Holland).

I am a fan of A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, so I bought this to be able to read the novella "The Mystery Knight" which is the third in the Dunk & Egg series (set about 50 years before the events in A Song of Ice and Fire). The book contains 6 stories, however, "The Mystery Knight" is three times longer than the other 5, so if you're only interested in this story, it is already worth buying the book, since the story is more than a quarter of the book (3/8ths to be precise).
I found the other stories to range from "okay" to "very good". Below I will record my thoughts on each of them:

Forever Bound by Joe Haldeman was pretty good. A story about a group of soldiers that have to share their inner thoughts through a machine to lead a special machine to war. A lot of the scenes were very interesting. The most interesting part of the story was the exploration of love when you share everything with another person.

The Eagle and the Rabbit by Steven Saylor was good. This story is about a group of Corinthians being enslaved by a group of Romans. The Roman leader singles out two Corinthians as the Eagle and the Rabbit. The Rabbit will be tortured more than normal and the Eagle will be treated kindly. The story has an interesting dilemma felt by the Eagle. Does he become Roman or does he continue a refugee life as a Corinthian? A very interesting dilemma.

And Ministers of Grace by Tad Williams was very good. This was my favorite story in the book. The main character is a very interesting assassin. Trained by a religious group (The Covenant) to kill the anti-religious prime minister of the Rationalist planet Archimedes.
