    To start, I have been re-reading Glen Cook books for 20 years. I know the lore. I know some names that aren't supposed to be known. Credence is alive. Howler is a Senjak. Dominator is a rapist (Not sure why I'm surprised.)...

    Glen Cook's The Black Company Discussion

    I want to share something my friend Jemmy wrote and use it as a springboard for discussion of Glen Cook and his contribution to fantasy fiction. Gritty or "grimdark" fantasy is arguably the genre's center of gravity at the moment. George R. R. Martin, Stephen Erickson, Joe Abercrombie, KJ...

    The Glen Cook Instrumentalities of the Night What Does It All Mean Thread

    Glen Cook's The Black Company

    I will probably be buying the first book so I thought I'd ask the community here what you guys think of it if you've read any of the books in this series. What kind of style is it? Gritty/bloody at all? Adult themes?

    Steven Erikson is just a Glen Cook hack??

    Steven Erikson is just a Glen Cook hack?? Having just read the first three volumes of The Black Company series by Glen Cook I was left feeling shocked and disappointed. How could Erikson use so much of this work and not feel abject guilt? Do not get me wrong, there is almost enough original...

I bought the first three books at a second hand store awhileeeee back, and just got around to finishing them.

    Black Company

    The annals of the Black Company isn't mentioned here. I enjoyed how down-right nasty the main characters were. Unfortunately I think this series suffered from the problem that many do - one or too books too many in the series. Thoughts? -Andy
