Editorial Reviews

Review

"Benjamin Sobieck's The Writer's Guide to Weapons is a "must-have" for fiction and fantasy writers, from novelists to screenwriters, comic writers, video game storyboarders, and more. The Writer's Guide to Weapons debunks common weapon myths in popular media and walks readers through authentic details about the possession and usage of an immense variety of weapons; the result is an extremely fascinating, accurate, and practical resource." --Midwest Book Review
