How do you get forty fantasy authors to contribute short stories for a war-themed anthology without paying them? It sounds as if there should be a good punchline to that, but all Petros Triantafyllou did was twist the moral thumbscrews and tell them all the profits would go to Doctors Without Borders, a charity that works tirelessly across the world to alleviate the effects of conflict, sickness and poverty. So, with clear consciences, several busloads of excellent and acclaimed fantasy authors have applied themselves to the task of penning a veritable mountain of words on the subject of The Art of War, expect bloodshed, gore, pathos, insight, passion, and laughs. Maybe even a wombat. Who knows. Anyway, as the original blurb said: "It's good. Buy it." -Mark LawrenceFeaturing: Mark Lawrence, Ed Greenwood, Brian Staveley, Miles Cameron, John Gwynne, Sebastien De Castell, Mitchell Hogan, Stan Nicholls, Andrew Rowe, C.T. Phipps, Rob J.

If you like fantasy built around the theme of war, then this is a fantastic anthology for you.
Stories by forty authors fill the pages of this book.

For me, the stories of of variable quality. Some were good, others not so much.

The foreword was excellent, and I hoped to read many stories in which they explore the human relation aspect of war and peace.

The authors explored the fantasy aspect almost perfectly. Most of them, however, focused only on the fantasy, leaving the stories somewhat dry to read. ( )
