Industry Reviews

"It was my friend and co-editor Gardner Dozois who first brought Garth Nix to my attention when we were doing Rogues. I was so glad that he did. 'A Cargo of Ivories' was one of the best stories in an anthology jam-packed with terrific work, and I loved making the acquaintance of Sir Hereward and Mister Fitz. If you haven't met them yet, you are in for a treat. They are the best partnership in the world of fantasy since Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser." -- George R.R. Martin, co-editor of "A Cargo of Ivories"

"Sir Hereward and Mister Fitz are one of the most unusual and fun sword & sorcery duos to arise since Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. The papier-mache headed puppet has haunted me ever since I first read of him and his artillerist knight companion and student. These tales are brilliantly imaginative and as fantastical as you'd expect from master storyteller Garth Nix. I'm delighted they're being collected in one volume and couldn't recommend them enough." -- Lou Anders, co-editor of "A Suitable Present for a Sorcerous Puppet"

"A rollicking good time filled with intrigue and mind-blowing surprises. Classically inclined, but outrageously original." -- Tim Pratt and Melissa Marr, co-editors of "Losing Her Divinity"

"I love adventure stories and I love swords and sorcery stories. I grew up with Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser and always wanted more. Garth Nix's stunning stories of Sir Hereward and Mister Fitz capture all of the magic and the mayhem of swords and sorcery at its best, which is why I am so delighted to see this book coming out now." -- Jonathan Strahan, co-editor of "A Suitable Present for a Sorcerous Puppet" and editor of "Home Is the Haunter" and "Cut Me Another Quill, Mister Fitz"

"A terrific collection, and perhaps my favourite Nix book to date...a joy to read. One of the best double-act pairings of characters out there. More please!" -- SFFWorld
