The Horseclans series is probably the best blend of fantasy and SiFi I have ever read. Pretty much something for everyone in these books. Great characters, epic storyline, fantastic writings. My highest recommendation

Robert Adams - the Horseclans, Castaways In Time, all of his others. Superb writing, vivid characters, amazing locations. This is what brought me to love Robert Adams. The same with the writers here, excellent!

Other authors' take on the Horseclans saga. All very well done. If you are a Horseclans fan, then this book has to be included in your 'to read' pile.

A collection of stories by various authors set in the Horseclans universe. It was decent but I didn't like it as much as the Adams books themselves.

Just one story I didn't like so a good anthology. For anyone who has read any of the Horseclans series I would recommend this book.
