The Books of David Gemmell

losbThe books below are by David Gemmell. With respect to the series they are listed chronologically with the publication date in parenthesis. The first book I read by him was Troy: Lord of the Silver Bow. I quickly read the entire trilogy and it ranks in my mind as the best historical fiction I have ever read (and he was a fantasy writer).

Societies need heroes. So we travel to places where the revisionists cannot dismantle the great. – Gemmell

It changed everything for me. Here was a guy that told stories the way I wanted to tell them. It really put me in my place. It humbled me. I kept thinking over and over …I want to write like this! When I finished the Troy Trilogy I went back to the beginning (1985) and started working my way forward. I read a LOT of books so it’s taken me a while but I’m up to 18 books.
