About the Author
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Lamb not only writes a rollicking good story, but his historical accuracy is spot on. He chooses exotic locations and historical situations that I suspect that 99% of people are not familiar with these days. Serious study of history sometimes seems to be dying out, but hopefully the short fiction stories of Harold Lamb will awaken a love for history in the hearts of even today's youngster, and prompt them to put down the XBOX controller, and pick up a good book.
If you like exciting well-written short stories in a historical setting, you owe it to yourself to pick up any of the new Harold Lamb collections.
