"Impressive work, and great fun!" -- Greg Bear, Author of Hull 03 and The Forge of God

"It may seem a fine thing in song or story to be ankle-deep in the blood of your enemies but in reality it's slippery, smells bad and is nearly impossible to get out of your socks afterwards." From the diaries of Engvyr Gunnarson

Overview

"Impressive work, and great fun!" -- Greg Bear, Author of Hull 03 and The Forge of God

"It may seem a fine thing in song or story to be ankle-deep in the blood of your enemies but in reality it's slippery, smells bad and is nearly impossible to get out of your socks afterwards." From the diaries of Engvyr Gunnarson

Engvyr is still young as his people, the Dwarves, reckon things, but he is already a distinguished veteran of the elite Dwarven rifle regiments and a Ranger of the Mountain Guards. Now he wants nothing more than to make a place for himself, perhaps settle down and raise a family. But when a new enemy rises in the North he finds himself at the center of the conflict, with not merely the freedom of his people but the fate of all of humanity hanging in the balance... and the habit of heroism is a hard one to break.

In Diaries of a Dwarven Rifleman magic, science and technology work hand-in-hand to create a new kind of fantasy world. Told with humor and humanity, it is a story of sweeping events seen from a 'ground-level' perspective by people living in and helping to shape the unique history of their world.

    I really enjoyed it for being so different.

    There's a very strong western influence here. I mean American, cowboys on the frontier style western influence. Wagon trains, rangers patrolling territory, cavalry action. I would say it's almost more of a western than a fantasy novel. There are a few fantasy elements. A couple brief moments of magic use and monstrous beasties. But they're few and far between.

    It does jump over several decades of the main character's life. And it goes from zero to sixty to hit its climax in time to slam on the brakes in an attempt to wrap everything up for the end. But it's a very unique read. And I really enjoyed it for being so different.
