Greg Keyes builds his stories around multiple main characters who meet only rarely, but allow the reader to follow different threads of the same events. Most of the chapters in his books focus on one of the main characters. Chapters often end in a surprise or a cliffhanger as the story moves to follow another character. Keyes' knowledge of fencing and linguistics also figures heavily in his books. The Hounds of Ash: and Other Tales of Fool Wolf (2008), ISBN 1-894063-09-0.

The book itself is a great read, I highly recommend it. Check it out here:.

It's so easy
I was first introduced to the writing of Greg Keyes through these short stories, back when they originally appeared in Dragon Magazine. They led me to buy his first two novels--"The Waterborn" and "The Blackgod"--and I was surprised and pleased to find out that the world of Fool Wolf and the world of these two novels were one and the same.

Excited that his Fool Wolf stories had been collected into a single volume, I snatched it up and read it quickly--only to discover his publisher had wrecked the stories. The stories weren't any different from their original printings, mind you, but the dozens upon dozens of typos persist from the first few pages all the way to the end. Words missing letters. Words capitalized for no reason. Lines in the middle of paragraphs that aren't justified like all the lines around them. These quirks are a major distraction.

Overall, I rated the book 3 stars because of these typos. Greg Keyes is a great writer, and this collection of shorts tells stories that take place after "The Blackgod" has ended--so to a fan of his first two novels, there's a certain pleasant familiarity in the reading. But the typos detract from the stories being told and make the entire collection look amateurish.

If you can live with a book that fails to meet professional editorial standards and you're a fan of Greg Keyes, then feel comfortable that you'll get some satisfaction out of this collection of short stories. But if you're unfamiliar with Greg Keyes or need to read perfect manuscripts, then go with "The Waterborn" and "The Blackgod." You'll get much more satisfaction out of those.

The short stories seem a bit rushed, after reading some of Keyes' other novels. Still plenty entertaining, and a bit of a twist of character from his normal writing.

Gregory Keyes has written several wonderful short stories about Fool wolf, a compellingly clever, if not particularly noble individual. Aside from some minor editing gaffs, which I beg to differ with other reviewers, do NOT make this collection unreadable, the stories are polished, well-plotted, the characters interesting and I enjoyed the hell out of it.

My real complaint is, will he ever write more about this character and setting?

An excellent collection of short stories with a unique and compelling setting.

Reminiscent of Fafnr and the Grey Mouser put together, I found the storytelling evocative and the world wonderful. As a continuation of the Blackgod books I loved every minute.

Good stories. I really like Keyes.

I had high hopes for this one. I've thoroughly enjoyed Keyes' series (The Briar King, Blood Knight, Born Queen, etc) and really thought I'd love this, too. I didn't. The stories were interesting, but so many spelling and grammatical errors slipped through it totally destroyed my enjoyment of the stories.
Excellent collection of stories.
