Glen Cook lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
By Chris Blyth 28 Nov 2011
Writing from a first person perspective is something not all that common in the fantasy genre, and I had my reservations going into the first few chapters, however after a half dozen it really grew on me and it adds a lot to the way the reader visualises the events throughout. The fact that it's so gritty and harsh helps the reader to put themselves into the characters, this isn't a fantasy epic of good versus evil, it's soldiers fighting because it's their life, and that adds a lot of realism that's often missing in fantasy novels.
"With the Black Company series Glen Cook single-handedly changed the face of fantasy--something a lot of people didn't notice and maybe still don't. He brought the story down to a human level, dispensing with the cliche archetypes of princes, kings, and evil sorcerers. Reading his stuff was like reading Vietnam War fiction on peyote." --Steven Erikson, author of "Gardens of the Moon""
