    Glen Cook's The Black Company begins one of the greatest fantasy epics of our age...
    Tor Essentials presents new editions of science fiction and fantasy titles of proven merit and lasting value, each volume introduced by an appropriate literary figure.

    For years, Glen Cook’s Black Company series built a major audience among fantasy fans. Told from the “worm’s-eye” view of the soldiers and functionaries who fight in the trenches of vast sorcerous wars, this epic riveted a generation of readers. If the Joseph Heller of Catch-22 had told the story of The Lord of the Rings, it might have read like the Black Company books. There is nothing else in fantasy like them.

    In the novel that launched the epic, the Lady, newly risen from centuries in thrall, stands between humankind and evil. Some feel she is evil itself. The hard-bitten men of the Black Company take their pay and do what they must, burying their doubts with their dead.

    Until the prophecy: The White Rose has been reborn, somewhere, to embody good once more. There must be a way for the Black Company to find her…

    So begins a work that challenges the idea of what epic fantasy can do.
