Amazingly, I am now the lucky recipient of an early copy of A Gathering of Ravens thanks to the author himself, Scott Oden. It has become my sacred duty and great pleasure to spread the word of this novel as I work my way through it, all other books put aside for now. Watch this space for further posts. Now, I have some reading to do..,
"This was a monumental find. Immediately I phoned a colleague in America, a Classics professor at Harrison College named V. Darlage,
who helped coordinate the dissemination of scans of the initial pages via fax to various prominent historians and Classicists around the globe. What followed were endless rounds of authentication and appraisal." >>[[ but it only took a week to do all that ?? ]] ==
>>>> i googled =
harrison college v darlage
= "Vincent Darlage is an accounting teacher for Harrison College in Columbus, Indiana. He is also an author for Mongoose Publishing's Conan the Roleplaying game" =
>> hmmm... me smells a detailed hoax, by Scott? [ do i have to bother asking Vincent? ] but entertaining stuff.

On the last 25-30 pages of this book, saving it for tonight. Ahead, the Battle of Clontarf, and hopefully Grimnir's bloody vengeance! Any fan of Howard or Wagner will absolutely love this novel. More to come soon..,
My spoiler-free review from the Goodreads sword and sorcery group.
thanks for your good review.
Very good to read your great enjoyment and enthusiasm for the new book.
It was a treat and an honor to be allowed to read the early uncorrected proof. Mr Oden is a great author and a hard core REH fan, and it shows in this novel. Can't wait for the official release June 2017, I will be pre-ordering my copy early in the new year. Anyone interested in some awesome S&S written by one of today's best writers should look it up!
