No. 31 - Jamie the Red

by Gordon R. Dickson with Roland Green

Started: October 15
Finished: October 21

Notes: I've long been a fan of the Thieves' World series of Sword and Sorcery anthologies. In fact, it's my favorite series. This character, Jamie the Red, was one of the characters from that series. So it's only natural I'd get around to reading this book from 1984, back when the original Thieves' World series was still going strong.

Mini review: A fine read, bringing me back to the not-so-dark Sword and Sorcery stories common to the early and mid-1980s. In this tale, a Scottish prince is exiled from home and becomes involved in the wars of France and the intrigues of Italy.
