ROGUES Edited by George RR Martin and Gardner Dozois Once again George RR Martin and Gardner Dozois have done a fantastic job in gathering stories from some of the biggest names in fantasy and science fiction. The characters are consistently grey. The stories vary through grim and gritty to fantastical and funny. And the central theme in each one, whether male or female, is a rogue. Abercrombie, Rothfuss, Lynch, Abraham, and Martin all contribute some fantastic works amongst a host of superlative authors. The stand outs for me were: Joe Abercrombie's piece 'Tough Times All Over' (First Law) which follows a package through the streets of Sipani as it's stolen time and time again by the city's interesting and colourful denizens; Gillian Flynn's 'What Do You Do?', a spine-tingling story about a con artist and a family she shouldn't have conned; Patrick Rothfuss's 'The Lightning Tree' (Kingkiller Chronicle) where we get to see a day in the life of Bast as he ventures from the Waystone Inn to learn lessons, trade secrets for riddles, and help the children (while also helping himself to the maidens) of the surrounding area; and, George RR Martin's 'The Rogue Prince, Or, a King's Brother' (A Song of Ice and Fire) where he tells us the story of Daemon Targaryen and his impact in the lead up to the Dance of Dragons. George RR Martin's short releases where the story is told with the voice of a maester recounting a historical research piece are really engaging. At first i thought they may read a bit poorly, as if Martin might just be trying to make a bit of extra coin out of his own historical notes. However, Martin very quickly gets you into the right headspace and has your imagination whirling as he adds layer upon layer of mouth-watering story...
