SYNOPSIS : From George R. R. Martin's Introduction to Warriors: "People have been telling stories about warriors for as long as they have been telling stories. Since Homer first sang the wrath of Achilles and the ancient Sumerians set down their tales of Gilgamesh, warriors, soldiers, and fighters have fascinated us; they are a part of every culture, every literary tradition, every genre. All Quiet on the Western Front, From Here to Eternity, and The Red Badge of Courage have become part of our literary canon, taught in classrooms all around the country and the world. Our contributors make up an all-star lineup of award-winning and bestselling writers, representing a dozen different publishers and as many genres. We asked each of them for the same thingβ€”a story about a warrior. Some chose to write in the genre they're best known for. Some decided to try something different. You will find warriors of every shape, size, and color in these pages, warriors from every epoch of human history, from yesterday and today and tomorrow, and from worlds that never were. Some of the stories will make you sad, some will make you laugh, and many will keep you on the edge of your seat." The stories in the second mass market volume of this book are: Introduction: Stories of the Spinner Rack, by George R. R. Martin Seven Years from Home, by Naomi Novik Dirae, by Peter S. Beagle Ancient Ways, by S. M. Stirling The Scroll, by David Ball Recidivist, by Gardner Dozois Ninieslando, by Howard Waldrop Out of the Dark, by David Weber Many of these writers are bestsellers. All of them are storytellers of the highest quality. Together they make a volume of unforgettable reading. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

SYNOPSIS : High-stakes politics and the rivalry between two powerful women in the trial of the century. Legendary defense attorney Raquel Rematti represents a presidential candidate―and former First Lady of an ISIS-assassinated President―Senator Angelina Baldesteri in the most watched and explosive trial of the 21st Century. The Senator, a Democrat, sees it as a vendetta show trial orchestrated by the current Republican US President, his Republican Attorney General, and an ambitious Republican United States Attorney in Manhattan. At the trial, a year before the election, the Senator faces charges of election fraud, tax evasion, and money laundering; each of which could deem her unfit for office and all but remove her from the Presidential race. As the epic trial unfolds, Raquel is staggered by her client’s naked ambition and the extent of the complex relationships the Senator keeps hidden in a mounting trail of lies. Every aspect of the Senator’s life is inundated with intrigue. When the swirling forces start getting lethal, Raquel needs to extricate herself from the venom of these illicit and treacherous connections. These two powerful women keep things professional in the courtroom under the eyes of a crusty old judge, but once outside, they pit themselves against each other, warrior to warrior. At the end, only one will be left standing.

SYNOPSIS : The basis for the cult-classic film The Warriors chronicles one New York City gang's nocturnal journey through the seedy, dangerous subways and city streets of the 1960s. Every gang in the city meets on a sweltering July 4 night in a Bronx park for a peace rally. The crowd of miscreants turns violent after a prominent gang leader is killed and chaos prevails over the attempt at order. The Warriors follows the Dominators making their way back to their home territory without being killed. The police are prowling the city in search of anyone involved in the mayhem. An exhilarating novel that examines New York City teenagers, left behind by society, who form identity and personal strength through their affiliation with their "family," The Warriors weaves together social commentary with ancient legends for a classic coming-of-age tale. This edition includes a new introduction by the author.
