From the Author
Gladiator is Reaper Hawk's origin story. I had written a short piece about a great barbarian warrior, stoic, brave, and with a sarcastic sense of humour titled The Death of Reaver Hawk which, later, got changed to Last Stand. I liked Reaper Hawk and wanted to know where he came from, so I set about writing that story. It took a long time because I was working on other things and Reaper was being cagey. A lot of the ideas I came up with didn't fit until, one day, I decided to stop talking about Reaper, and start talking as him. Things flowed a lot easier after that, and Gladiator is the story that emerged. I liked it, but had no idea what to do with it, so it sat on a memory drive for a couple of years until I heard about Indie Publishing, then I brought it out, dusted it off, polished it up, and put it out.
