"Tales of the Old World" is a collection of thirty six short stories set in Games Workshops's Fantasy Warhamer setting. It's published by Black Library, Games Workshop's own publishing branch.

As I've come to expect from Black Library publications, the stories vary widely in quality, ranging from badly written hack'n'slash cliche stuff, to some nice tales of mystery, horror, and adventure. The purpose of these stories is to entertain, and as far as I'm concerned, they've mostly succeeded. For that, and for the fact it's set in a fantasy world many of us have come to know and love, "Tales of the Old World" on the whole is worth reading and gets solid 3.5 stars from me.

That being said, this collection contains two 5 star stories, both of which have to them far more philosophical depth then one could expect in a Black Library publication, or, indeed, in many "high brow" books we see nowadays. These two stories are "Who Mourns a Necromancer" and "Totentanz". They both deal with the way life and death interact, and both do so in an unique manner that leaves the reader with a lot of food for thought. "Totentanz" in particular begins as a humorous satire of fantasy cliches, but ends like a black comedy, leaving the reader depressed and bewildered. You should read these two stories, even if you have no interest in the rest of the collection.

It's worth mentioning that the binding of "Tales of the Old World" is very poor. Constant handling causes the book to gradually fall apart. I had the same problem with "The Vampire Genevieve" collection, so I suppose it's just the way Black Library makes its books. A pity.

Awesome 29 juillet 2008

I wish these weren't short stories!

Great book and well worth the read for those lore junkies out there.

There are a few 'ok' stories but the awesome ones more than make up for it!

Weak collection 31 mars 2011

I found most of the stories to be mediocre and forgettable. None of the stories seemed especially good. A few were decent but nothing special. I have read better anthologies in the Warhammer series.

Great short stories 3 octobre 2010

This is a great compilation of various warhammer fantasy short stories. Be advised that if you already own the other warhammer omnibus novels then you will have already read about half of these stories.
