Back cover blurb:
The plot thickens
Thieves' World...took the fantasy world by surprise.
Tales from the Vulgar Unicorn ...continued the tradition, and was a Locus best-seller for three months.
Shadows of Sanctuary...focussed on the meanest, seediest town in all of fantasy, and was even more popular than the first two volumes!
And now, Storm Season. In which the clouds of war gather on the horizon, and the motley assortment of thieves and swordsmen and small-time sorcerers who make up the town of Sanctuary must decide once and for all which side they are on.
Stories edited by Robert Lynn Aspirin and Lynn Abbey. Dark fantasy, not for the faint of heart... very well written, but don't get too attached to any of the characters!
A really good collection of tales set in Asprin and Abbey's THIEVES' WORLD. Stories by C.J, Cherryh, Robert Asprin, Andrew Offutt, Diana Paxson, Lynn Abbey, Janet Morris, and an epilog.
