Unlike the standard fantasy cliche nowdays, the Coramonde series has but two lean and mean books, not a trilogy or the multi-volume bloat that has become all too common these days. I'd love to have seen more in the world of course but not at the expense of quality. Alas they don't write 'em much like this anymore.
Daley's untimely death put an end to his burgeoning writing career, and I am very glad to see some of his best work being released.
This is good stuff.
I thought I was purchasing an original paperback version of the book, but what I received is some kind of knock-off copy. The original paperback book has been scanned and then reproduced, not as typeset text, but as an image exactly the size of the original paperback, printed in the center of a much larger page. This leaves large (like 2") borders around the text. Photo-copy a paperback page at original size onto an 8x10 sheet of paper, and you'll have a good approximation of what's provided.
Look for the original book, Daily deserves it.
Wasn't worth the shipping charge to return or I would have.
As a young man, I thrilled to these novels and the worlds they illustrated for my "Theater of the Mind" in the late 70's and early '80s. In the days before MMORPG and the Internet, Science Fiction channel and Hollywood's demand for the stories only then found in comics and fantasy novels, Brian Daley's mastery of the creation of political/social worlds is truly ahead of its time. Thirty years before the monster HBO hit "Game of Thrones", Starfollowers shows the aftermath of a kingdom won, the changing dynamics of allies and friends and the need for Honor to be served when an enemy, vanquished but not destroyed, comes back with a vengeance.
Written long before Saddam Hussain was vanquished in Desert Storm but not destroyed in the 10 years prior to 2003's Iraq War, which was dubbed Operation Iraqi Freedom by the United States, "The Starfollowers of Coramonde" is well executed and remarkably prescient (as science fiction often is) regarding the consequences of leaving a crusade under-won.

One of my favorites about a hundred years ago when I was in Highschool. After reading it again I find that it's still one of my favorites. Read it - you won't go wrong.Published 6 months ago by lanmanjs
If you like to read old school heroic fantasy this is for you! This is an excellent story and nicely closes out the plot lines started in Doomfarers of Coramonde. Read morePublished on April 16, 2014 by MDS
