    1. Good short stories by a lot of familiar names including one by Drake himself. Good insights into what makes vets tick, but don't kid yourself into thinking it explains all of us. Worth a read as entertainment, too, BTW


    2. This is an interesting tribute to David Drake. As such, it will be easier to appreciate if you have read some of his military stuff and some of his fantasy. But it could stand alone, and if you like what you see maybe you'll seek out some Drake. Unsurprisingly, there's a lot of emphasis on his military stories and his own post-service issues, but just before it gets to be too much there's a fantasy story here and there to lighten it up.


    3. This book is a good collection of stories and is a tribute volume for David Drake. Some of the stories have somewhat tenuous connections to him or his work, but I especially enjoyed the semi-autobiographical ones from Eric Flint and Sarah Van Name, a Hammer story by Larry Correia, and short pieces by Gene Wolfe and Barry Malzberg. The Malzberg was particularly cool, being just like some of the most cramped and paranoid work he published in the '60s and '70s. The only ones I really didn't like we [...]


    4. I have been reading David Drake's fiction since about 1985. I've never met him, but we have communicated via email a couple of times over the years. I think it's nice that he's finally getting some recognition for the influence he's had on the sub-genre of military science fiction. This collection includes a selection of stories written in Drake's style or milieu, interspersed between essays about Drake and his works. In truth, I enjoyed the essay portions more than most of the stories, as these [...]


    5. A great selection of stories that pay tribute to David Drake's influence on both fantasy and science fiction. Interestingly, I'd already read the Hammer's Slammer's story that ends the book and is supposed to be a "new" story, but it's possible I read it in another anthology published after this one.Overall, I liked the lot, apart from one story that I skimmed over completely. Larry Correia and Sarah Hoyt in particular wrote great stories, but I liked them all. Definitely worth a read if you are [...]


    6. A nice collection of stories honoring David Drake. My favorites were Hellhounds (Daniel), Technical Advantage (Lambshead), Saracens (McCarthy), Village of Yesteryear (S. Van Name), Trouble With Telepaths (Davis), A Cog in Time (Hoyt), All That's Left (M. Van Name), Losing Side (Correia), and Save What You Can (Drake).
