Harold Lamb posted 04 Jan 2007, 23:01 by borfalkian, Candidate

R. Scott Bakker mentioned Harold Lamb in one of his interviews and now I am a Harold Lamb freak. His books rock and I totally see how they could be inpirational, especially "The Crusades: Iron Men and Saints". Lamb's stuff is mostly out of print though, so you have to go digging through used bookstores. view post

I bought Iron Men and Saints on ebay. The reason I bought it was Scott's recommendation and I really enjoyed it thoroughly. It was great writing. view post

Yeah, I bought it on Amazon, and then ended up buying a whole slew of Lamb stuff off of abe-books. There is a guy who is slowly re-publishing Lamb's adventure fiction as well, through the University of Nebraska's Bison Press. It's good stuff and I can't believe Lamb has been so forgotten by most. view post

I was interested in Lamb before I read PoN and then I saw the same interview I think you're talking about. I'm hip deep in ASOIF but am looking forward to reading some Lamb shortly...is there anything besides the Crusades book that you've read that's interesting? What's the style like? view post

Try march of Muskovy, or his Cossack stories. His style is very narrative based and sweeping. view post

Say, what genre is this? Historical fiction? I'm looking for something different to read, and I might give this a try. A quick perusal of my local bookstore revealed nothing, but mebe I was lookin in the wrong place. I have some specialty bookstores nearby ... military, non-fiction and sci-fi/crime. view post
