Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of horrific, weird, and fantastic tales by a master storyteller and creator of best-selling military science fiction series including Hammer’s Slammers.  Introductions on each story provide detailed snapshots of the larger-than-life editors, publishers, and writers with whom Drake has worked throughout his career.

A collection of horrific, weird, and fantastic tales by a master storyteller and creator of best-selling military science fiction. Here are weird stories set in the present, along with alternative histories filled with gritty realism and exacting detail as well as an assortment of horrors and monsters. Most of all, here are the tough heroes who throughout time master their own fears and face the very real terrors that haunt existence.  Sometimes these heroes win a partial victory.  Sometimes it’s enough to go down fighting.

Before Drake was a best-selling author of military science fiction, he was a prolific writer of horror and fantasy short fiction. “Denkirch,” Drake’s first sale, is here, and well as many stories set in the worlds of his fantasy novels (Ranks of Bronze, Lord of the Isles, and others).

More than just a collection of stories, Night & Demons features extensive story notes that chronicle the development of one of science fiction's most popular writers, and provide detailed snapshots of the larger-than-life editors, publishers, and writers with whom Drake has worked throughout his career.

“[R]ousing old-fashioned space opera.” — Publishers Weekly on the “RCN” series.

“The fun is in the telling, and Mr. Drake has a strong voice.  I want more!”  –Philadelphia Weekly Press

“[S]pace opera is alive and well.  This series is getting better as the author goes along…character development combined with first-rate action and memorable world designs.”  #LINK<>#–SFReader.com
