The Birth of a Legend, David Gemmell Short Story

One of the most beloved characters for fans of the late David Gemmell’s writing is the axeman, Druss. Druss first appeared in Legend, a book that has not only captured the imagination of fantasy readers, but has converted would-be critics of the fantasy genre, to wanting to read more. The origins of Druss are revealed to a good degree in the Chronicles of Druss the Legend (my brothers have nicked my copies and claim to have no knowledge of them). Fantasy Book Critic have recently gotten their hands on an interview with David Gemmell and gotten permission from the orginal publisher and Stella Gemmell to publish online a previously unknown Druss short story that includes Druss’s marriage and his first battle.
