 Onward, Drake!

Baen Books published a tribute book in conjunction with World Fantasy Con in November 2015, where Dave, who turned 70 that year, was a Special Guest.

There are stories and essays from John Lambshead, Cecelia Holland, Barry Malzberg, Toni Weisskpt, Eric Flint, Larry Correia, Eric S Brown, Sarah Van Name and others.

There are two new stories by Dave himself. He describes them as “a humorous fantasy of 8700 words, and a Hammer story of 12K which isn’t by any stretch of the imagination humorous.”
