  • The Dread Empire, a gritty world of larger-than-life plots, nation-shattering conflict, maddening magic, strange creatures, and raw, flawed heroes, all shown through the filter of Glen Cook’s inimitable war-correspondent prose.

    The Dread Empire, spanning from the highest peaks of the Dragon’s Teeth to the endless desert lands of Hammad al Nakir, from besieged Kavelin to mighty Shinshan, the Empire Unacquainted with Defeat, with its fearless, masked soldiers, known as the Demon Guard… An Empire Unacquainted with Defeat collects all of Glen Cook’s short fiction set in the vast world of the Dread Empire, from “The Nights of Dreadful Silence”, featuring the first appearance of Bragi Ragnarson, Mocker, and Haroun bin Yousif, to the culture-clashing novella “Soldier of an Empire Unacquainted with Defeat”; from “Silverheels”, Cook’s first published work of fiction, to “Hell’s Forge”, a haunting tale of cursed pirates and strange lands, appearing here for the first time. Also including a detailed introduction and extensive story notes by Glen Cook, An Empire Unacquainted with Defeat charts the development of this influential American author and the massive, multifaceted world that he created.
