Vettius and His Friends

Vettius and His FriendsI started writing with heroic fantasies either explicitly set during the classical past or closely modeled on that past. Black Iron was the fourth story I sold and the first that I consider to be really publishable.

These aren’t necessarily my best stories (though The Barrow Troll comes pretty close), but they’re very dear to my heart.
