Amazon Reader Remarks: Wings of Omen, the sixth in the Thieves" World series, brings more of what one expects from the series. Featuring 8 stories from talented authors (including Asprin, Lynn Abbey, Diana Paxson, and C.J. Cherryh), Wings moves the town of Sanctuary into an open guerilla conflict on the street. Like the other Thieves" World books, the format of different stories occurring in the same location has strengths and weaknesses.

Welcome to Sanctuary, a city of outlaws and advernturers in a world of war and wizardry, peopled with colorful characters created by today's top fantasy adventure talents, including:

Andrew Offutt
Diana L. Paxson
Lynn Abbey
Robert Lynn Asprin
