David Drake has left an indelible mark on the science fiction and fantasy genres. Now, top authors in the science fiction and fantasy field pay tribute to the man and his work in this all-new collection of stories and essays.
Bestselling author David Drake has been creating top-notch military science fiction, space opera, and fantasy novels and stories for decades. In this all-original collection, a stellar line-up of writers pays tribute to Drake with stories as broad in range as his own fiction.
In Eric Flint's "A Flat Affect," a king is no match for a pair of storytellers. Gene Wolfe takes us to a strange and wondrous future in "Incubator." Larry Correia examines what it's like to face Hammer's Slammers from "The Losing Side." S. M. Stirling offers an insider's view of "Working with Dave, or, Inmates in Bellevue." Mur Lafferty shows what happens when a fairy visitor receives an unexpected welcome in "The Crate Warrior, the Doppelganger, and the Idea Woman." The book also features two new pieces from Drake: "The Great Wizard, Cabbage," a comic historical fantasy, and "Save What You Can," the first new Hammer's Slammers story in nearly a decade.
