In his joint review of the final Kage Baker collection In the Company of Thieves and the new Howard Waldrop collection from Small Beer Press Horse of a Different Color, Don D’Ammassa writes “Tachyon and Small Beer have published several of the best short story collections of recent years, and these are both well up on that list.”
About In the Company of Thieves itself:
They are serious in tone, slightly reminiscent of Fritz Leiber’s Changewar series, and they are destined to be ranked with that classic sequence. The quality here is uniform but “Mother Aegypt” is probably my favorite.
