it was amazing

Sharps was my introduction to K.J. Parker, and if it's not his best then I have a lot to look forward to.

Decaying empires, political intrigue, Machiavellian monks, complex characters, and lots and lots of fencing! Parker is a master wordsmith- I know I'm going to stick with an author if I lose count of the number of times I stop at a sentence and say, "Man, I wish I had written that." After a few edge-of-your-seat passages that detail fencing methods and movements, I wouldn't be surprised if he were a master swordsman as well.

I've joined the ranks of Parkerian fandom. Fortunately for me, he's got a wide body of work.
