George R. R. Martin, from his introduction to Warriors "People have been telling stories about warriors for as long as they have been telling stories. Since Homer first sang the wrath of Achilles and the ancient Sumerians set down their tales of Gilgamesh, warriors, soldiers, and fighters have fascinated us; they are a part of every culture, every literary tradition, every genre. All Quiet on the Western Front, From Here to Eternity, and The Red Badge of Courage have become part of our literary canon, taught in classrooms all around the country and the world. "Our contributors make up an all-star line-up of award-winning and bestselling writers, representing a dozen different publishers and as many genres. We asked each of them for the same thing--a story about a warrior. Some chose to write in the genre they're best known for. Some decided to try something different. You will find warriors of every shape, size, and color in these pages, warriors from every epoch of human history, from yesterday and today and tomorrow, and from worlds that never were. Some of the stories will make you sad, some will make you laugh, and many will keep you on the edge of your seat." Every story in this volume appears here for the first time. Included are: a long novella from the world of his Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin, a new tale of "Lord John" by Diana Gabaldon, an "Emberverse" story by S. M. Stirling, a "Forever Peace" story by Joe Haldeman, and a long tale of humanity at bay by David Weber. Also present are original stories by David Ball, Peter S. Beagle, Lawrence Block, Gardner Dozois, Robin Hobb, Cecelia Holland, Joe R. Lansdale, David Morrell, Naomi Novik, James Rollins, Steven Saylor, Robert Silverberg, Carrie Vaughn, Howard Waldrop, and Tad Williams. Many of these writers are bestsellers. All of them are storytellers of the highest quality. Together they make a volume of unforgettable listening.… (mer)

Another good Dunk and Egg story in there from George RR Martin ( )

The main reason to read this anthology is for George R. R. Martin's The Mystery Knight. It's a good story, not as good as The Hedge Knight but better than The Sworn Sword.

The remaining 19 stories are by different authors and range in setting from ancient Rome to the future. They are generally OK in quality. The ones that stood out to me are:

The Triumph by Robin Hobb: A Roman commander is slowly executed by the Carthaginians while his childhood friend helplessly watches. It's an awesome story with Hobb's characteristic richness of relationship and emotion until a flashback sequence goes on for way too many pages.

Dirae by Peter S. Beagle: a badass story in modern times.

Seven Years from Home by Naomi Novik: A diplomat is sent to a planet where people have voluntarily undergone mutation to live in ecoharmony. I loved this story.

Recidivist by Gardner Dozois: When robots become sentient and omnipotent, they won't set out to exterminate humanity. Instead, they'll toy with us and our planet in cruelly creative ways.

The Scroll by David Ball: An evil sultan in 17th century Morocco tests his Christian slave's beliefs, particularly the one against murder.

Also, Warriors begins with a nice intro by GRRM about how the reading material of his childhood came mostly from the haphazardly arranged books on a spinner rack at the local candy store. He therefore experienced books of various genres before knowing that there were genres. The point of Warriors is to get away from genre categorization and bring back the spinner rack experience. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed this compendium of stellar short stories! What I really liked was the diversity of ideas, eras and characters. There are many stories which I didn't want to see end.... I am going to have to enlarge my "to read" list considerably! Some faves include: "Ancient Ways" (SM Stirling), "Out of the Dark" (David Weber), "Dirae" (Peter S. Beagle), "The Pit" (James Rollins), and "Soldierin'" (Joe R. Lansdale). ( )

Three stories stood out - two which both look at the Rome/Carthage conflicts from different perspectives, Robin Hobb's "Triumph" and Steven Saylor's "Eagle and the Rabbit"; and Carrie Vaughan's "Girls from Avenger" about women pilots in the second world war. There were a load of other stories tying into series, some of which I know and some of which I don't, but those made less of an impact on me. ( )
