4.0 von 5 Sternen Mal was anderes!! 15. August 2014
Von Linda
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch enthält insgesamt 21 kurz Geschichten von bekannten und für viele auch von nicht so bekannten Autoren. Ich kannte genau 3 Autoren und wegen zwei von ihnen hab ich das Buch auch gekauft. Ich habe jeder Geschichte eine eigene Bewertung gegeben und sie spiegelt wieder, was ich von der Geschichte im ganzen hielt:

1 Stern (super langweilige Handlung und grässliche Charaktere)

Joe R. Lansdale - Bent Twig
Michael Swanwick - Tawny Petticoats
David W. Ball - Provenance
Carrie Vaughn - Roaring Twenties
Scott Lynch - A Year and a Day in Old Theradane
Walter Jon Williams - Diamonds From Tequila
Bradley Denton - Bad Brass

3 Sterne (interessante Handlung, aber die Charaktere sind gerade so akzeptabel)

Joe Abercrombie - Tough Times All Over
Paul Cornell - A Better Way to Die
Connie Willis - Now Showing
George R.R. Martin - The Rogue Prince

4 Sterne (super interessante Handlung und interessante Charaktere)

Matthew Hughes - The Inn of the Seven Blessings
Cherie Priest - Heavy Metal
Daniel Abraham - The Meaning of Love
Phyllis Eisenstein - The Caravan to Nowhere
Lisa Tuttle - The Curious Affair of the Dead Wives
Neil Gaiman - How the Marquis Got His Coat Back
Patrick Rothfuss - The Lightning Tree

5 Sterne (muss man nicht viel zu sagen, die Sterne sprechen für sich)

Gillian Flynn - What Do You Do?
Steven Saylor - Ill Seen in Tyre
Garth Nix - A Cargo of Ivories

Ich hab das Buch wegen Patrick Rothfuss und George R.R. Martin gekauft und war gerade von ihren Geschichten ein wenig enttäuscht. In "The Lightning Tree" ging es um Bast und was er am Tag so treibt.

‘Rogues’ is a new anthology signed by editors George R.R. Martin and Gardner R. Dozois that consists of 21 stories though majority of readers will be most probable attracted with new ‘A Game of Thrones’ story written by Martin himself.

Inside its covers reader can find following stories:
George R.R. Martin - Everybody Loves a Rogue (Introduction)
Joe Abercrombie - Tough Times All Over
Gillian Flynn - What Do You Do?
Matthew Hughes - The Inn of the Seven Blessings
Joe R. Lansdale - Bent Twig
Michael Swanwick - Tawny Petticoats
David W. Ball - Provenance
Carrie Vaughn - The Roaring Twenties
Scott Lynch - A Year and a Day in Old Theradane
Bradley Denton - Bad Brass
Cherie Priest - Heavy Metal

Walter Jon Williams - Diamonds From Tequila
Phyllis Eisenstein - The Caravan to Nowhere
Lisa Tuttle - The Curious Affair of the Dead Wives
Neil Gaiman - How the Marquis Got His Coat Back
Connie Willis - Now Showing
Patrick Rothfuss - The Lightning Tree

As is the usual case with story collection edited by Martin this one also doesn’t disappoint with its length – more than 800 pages of well-made text that doesn’t share genre or theme, from fantasy to thriller fans inside you’ll be able to find something for you, only loosely united by the motive of rogue leading character.

Speaking about the quality, as it’s always the case with the anthologies, stories are not always easy to compare because it depends on question of personal liking and intention, why on the first place you bought it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen GOT-Prequel 3. Juli 2014
Von Dreamer
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Hab mir das Teil nur wegen des "Ice and Fire"-Prequels gekauft, und aus Zeitmangel auch leider noch nicht mehr gelesen. Diese Story ist denn auch nicht schlecht, und mir als leidenschaftlichem "Ice and Fire"-Fan gefällt das natürlich. Spielt in der Zeit noch vor "The Princess and the Queen" und behandelt die Geschichte von Daemon Targaryen. Wirkt leider etwas "mit sehr heißer Feder" geschrieben. Und es ärgert mich maßlos, das G.R.R.Martin nicht endlich das lang versprochene "Winds of Winter" fertigschreibt (sollte schon im April erscheinen!), sondern sich stattdessen ständig mit Kurzgeschichten und Drehbüchern beschäftigt. Er ist weder der Jüngste noch der Gesündeste. Die Gefahr besteht durchaus, das die "Ice and Fire"-Saga unvollendet bleibt, zugunsten von vielleicht einfacheren Projekten und wahrscheinlich schnellerem Geld.

3.0 von 5 Sternen What you'd expect from a collection of short stories 4. Juli 2014
Von Katie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Some stories were truly excellent and I found some new (to me) authors that I would like to read (Joe Abercrombie for one)! The Gillian Flynn story was truly fabulous as of course was Patrick Rothfuss. George RR Martin's introduction makes buying the whole book worthwhile, which is fortunate since his story was almost boring. I guess it's supposed to be an excerpt from that anthology that he's publishing. It reads just like that book of genealogy that Ned reads to discover what it was that Jon Arryn was investigating.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well worth the money 19. Juni 2014
Von Caroline Luu - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a fan of several of the authors in this anthology: Garth Nix, Neil Gaiman, Patrick Rothfuss, and George RR Martin. I've been waiting for as long as Patrick Rothfuss told his fans that he had a story about Bast.

That's what I read first. It was beautifully done, and it was a perfect story about Bast. I am now content to wait for his novella on Auri and the Underthing coming out this fall.

I read George RR Martin's story about the older Targaryens. It was good, and it was more hasty than his novels. That meant that it moved at a practically breakneck speed for him, and it was easier to keep track of than his deep games. I liked it a lot.

I then read Garth Nix's nonsense stories about godlets, and it was charming and adorable ESPECIALLY because there's a tiny elephant named Rosie who is a major character. Somehow, he sets up an entire world in a brief space. Lovely.

The last that I read (of course I'm going to read the entirety of the anthology now that I've seen the quality) was Neil Gaiman's on the Marquis de Carabas. It tells you almost nothing, but it pulled me back into the world of Neverwhere. It was nice.

This book is well worth the money.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another nerdgasm for fantasy fans! 30. Juni 2014
Von citan-uzuki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
What we have here is another collaboration between George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois. Yes, another potentially nerdgasm-inducing reading material for fantasy fans out there. Once again, like a box of "Whitman's Sampler" chocolates, the purpose is to give readers a "sampler" of works from several authors.

Let me begin by saying that I am a long-time fan of George Martin's work. I bought this book primarily to read about Daemon Targaryen, the rogue prince. However, I have also enjoyed the other short stories within the volume. That is the advantage of an anthology such as this. You get to sample short stories from a lot of authors to see if one of them will interest you. And, you get to do this without having to read a 500 page novel. With this, you will know right away whose work interests you. I find that to be a valuable service to the picky reader, like me.

Abercrombie's short story was fine. A little too repetitious of a plot, as an item changes hands throughout the story. It was not for me, that story. Flynn's started off hilarious and definitely will hook you into the female character. There are lot of variety here. Some you will like, and some you will not.

I am a regular at the forums of www.towerofthehand.com. While I am far from being a prolific creator of posts over there, I do check in on a regular basis. I read just about everything that I can get my hands on that is related to "A Song of Ice and Fire". Once again, the big man did not disappoint. This short story, "The Rogue Prince" tells of the events which led to the Westerosi civil war known as the "dance of the dragons". The events here predate that of "The Princess and the Queen". The central character is that enigmatic man, Prince Daemon. The same man who met his end on the back of a dragon in the first volume. As the story unfolds, the events which may have led to the bloody war are presented to us. And in true George Martin fashion, we are still not completely sure just how accurate these are. We get conflicting accounts, from two sources. As in the main novels, the desires of the human heart is the primary motivator of events. The Targaryens have a fascinating history. Their history is full of colorful characters. Some are destined for greatness, possessing great abilities and vision like Daenerys Stormborn in the current novels. While some are quite the rogue, like Daemon, pursuing their own self-interests. Rhaegar, who by all accounts had the potential for greatness, and foolishly threw it all away due to one weakness. And others like Aerion Brightflame, full of petty cruelty and prone to fits of insanity. It is doubtful that the events here will have any impact on the plot in the current novels. However, this just serves to enrich the history of the Targaryens, which is the history of Westeros for the last 300 years.

Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Walked in the door for Abercrombie and Rothfuss... 27. Juni 2014
Von Jason - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Walked in the door for Abercrombie and Rothfuss... I walked out the other end of this HEFTY conglomeration of 'rogue' stories interested in some new writers!
I KNEW that Abercrombie, Rothfuss, Lynch and Gaiman are automatic wins but I was pleased by the rest of the writers as well. Martin delivers a genre spanning collection of well written stories.
I'm now going to check out some other writers while my favorites are completing their current projects ((Half a King in less than a month!!))

As is the usual case with story collection edited by Martin this one also doesn’t disappoint with its length – more than 800 pages of well-made text that doesn’t share genre or theme, from fantasy to thriller fans inside you’ll be able to find something for you, only loosely united by the motive of rogue leading character.

Speaking about the quality, as it’s always the case with the anthologies, stories are not always easy to compare because it depends on question of personal liking and intention, why on the first place you bought it. For the most people reason for buying this one will be either for learning about some new pieces of puzzle from ‘Songs of the Ice and Fire’ universe or story ‘The Lighting Tree’ by Patrick Rothfuss that brings story (or actually few of them) about previously known and intriguing character Bast from ‘The Kingkiller Chronicle’.

Martin’s ‘Everybody Loves a Rogue’ will bring more light for ‘Princess and the Queen’ found in the other Martin’s anthology, that speaks about Prince Daemon Targaryen, who was brother of King Viserys I, who wed his niece Rhaenyra and took her side during the war called Dance of Dragons, between Rhaenyra and her half-brother Aegon I. The reader should not be disappointed getting no particularly rounded story, but more of a background to bit complicated family tree of Targaryen.

For fantasy fans also interesting would be Scott Lynch’s ‘A Year and a Day in Old Theradane’ who wrote a story set in a land led by the wizards about the woman thief called Amarelle who will join hands with a group of interesting characters including female goblin and wizard.

Though describing all the stories in detail would require to wrote another book, in short, in another stories reader can find zombie story set in twisted version of New Orleans, story about the rescuing the troubled daughter, fantasy story about the god imprisoned in a box, customer service representative who decided to step on the dark side and many others.

General judgment when it comes for story anthologies is always difficult to give; I admire authors who have ability to present cohesive story and interesting characters in short format, therefore if you think like me you’ll probably like this collection as much as recently released ‘Dangerous Women’ also edited by Martin. On the other hand if you are not a fan of short stories and you are only eager to read new GOT material it would be better just to borrow this one and save money for the future installments of Martin works.
