Title: Shadows of Sanctuary

Series: Thieves’ World

Editor: Robert Asprin

Rating: 1 of 5 Battle Axes

Genre: SFF

Pages: 338

Format: OCR Scan

 

Synopsis:

Further stories from the city of Sanctuary, recently taken over by the Empire.

It just keeps going lower into the gutter.

 

My Thoughts:

Janet Morris writes several of these stories and she seems to be a huge fan of the M/M mercenary idea. What a disgusting pervert. This was going downhill anyway, but that pushed this into the “won’t be reading any more of this series” territory.

And it was becoming more about the Empire as much as Sanctuary. I don’t want to read about some grubby Empire and some disgusting mercenaries.

Title: Tales from the Vulgar Unicorn

Series: Thieves’ World

Author: Robert Asprin, Editor

Rating: 3.5  of 5 Battle Axes

Synopsis:

A continuation of the Thieves’ World anthology, where we get novellas to short stories about various characters and their adventures in the grubby city of Sanctuary.

 

My Thoughts:

This stuff was ok. Kind of a like a Forgotten Realms but in one city instead of multiverse and short stories instead of trilogies or series.

My only sticking point is that no character is really likable. You have some slightly sympathetic ones, but none that you want to cheer for. It really is a collection of scummy people. There are 10 books in this anthology series, we’ll see how long I stick with it 😀

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

 

It was obvious from the story that there was a bit of story missing. Turns out this was a second book.
It was not indicated in the title in any way.

But it wasn’t even engaging. I enjoyed the first Thieves’ World book of short stories, but this, this was just plain old boring D&D.
