Fantasy Gem

Unfortunately earlier this year the great fantasy author David Gemmell passed away. Gemmell is famous for creating Druss the Legend, and creating a hero who was past his prime. Gemmell always managed to invest his stories with a sense of gravity, and even when the heroes win they do so at a cost. People die and no one escapes one of his stories unscathed.
Gemmell passed away having published two volumes of his retelling the story of Troy. I'm not sure I want the last volume published unless Gemmell had already written it. I'm keeping my finger's crossed and hopefully Gemmell did finish it.
So do yourself a favour and read some of the amazing and touching stories composed by this great author. Hopefully you will keep coming back for more.
