An excellent gift! Now for your pleasure we present Swords of Riverside, an exclusive 2 in 1 hardcover omnibus. Remarkable stories that manage to create a swashbuckling fantasy world with nary a wizard nor dragon in sight.

Still, that's not at all what's most lovable about these books turned into aural form! They have dashing fight scenes, complicated (but not too complicated to follow without a chart) intrigues, love, lust, and plenty of quaffing and witty banter. I like that gay men and women in power aren't merely bit players or tragic figures in these stories, although they do each come with their own dose of tragedy. The tragedy and violence are used well, though, I believe, to make most primary characters in each story stand out as three-dimensional. Nobody's perfect, some people are awful, and one of my favorite aspects of love stands out in at least one relationship in every tale: the importance of patience as a means of demonstrating love.
