Reviews of : The Book of Swords by Gardner Dozois PDF Book
Inside this Book – I’m not much of a short story person, but I keep being drawn to picking up these Gardner Dozois anthologies. After having mixed results with some of his others, this one may be my favorite. It’s likely due to theme. I love sword stories. Most of these are fantasy stories, but not all of them. I liked the vast majority of them, and only really disliked one of them. My favorites of the bunch are The Mocking Tower by Daniel Abraham and Hrunting by C.J. Cherryh. I enjoyed the Scott Lynch story, though not as much as his story in Rogues. I haven’t been a fan of the George R.R. Martin “history” Song of Ice and Fire stories, so I went into this one with low expectations. It was probably the best of three I’ve read. I didn’t find myself bored, but I’d still have preferred a style closer to the novels.
Inside this book –The Book of Swords PDF Book by Gardner Dozois – Fantasy is pervaded by legendary weapons, by weapons of awesome power and history: the kind that belonged to kings, queens and heroes. However, fantasy is also full of ordinary swords, swords that belonged to the common man defending his family, ceremonial swords that have caught the eye of infamous thiefs and swords that are worn and dull having spent years in service to a solider in numerous battles. What the writers here do is take the idea of the sword and play with it, showing its significance in a rich variety of situations. I was glad not all the writers chose to depict incredible blades with a razor sharp edge, and chose to explore how significant a sword can be in a number of situations to a number of different people. Had they not done so this collection would have been a somewhat repetitive and unimaginative bunch of stories. That being said though, not all the stories used the sword as well as others. Some were barely mentioned and for others it was the absolute essence of the story.
