One thought on “Short story by Scott Lynch to be published in new anthology”

  1. So I read the story and thought it was probably the best story in the entire collection! It’s set in a world seperate than anything he has ever done (to my knowledge at least). I also thought he had the best story in Rogues (or at least tied with Abercrombie).

    I know some will be upset that this story took away time from gentlemen bastards, but whats done is done so might as well just enjoy this story. Other standouts include the ones by KJ Parker, Ken Liu, Daniel Abraham, and Mathew Hughes. I thought there was more good than bad with the collection.
