Review

Rating: 8

A little bit of Fraser’s Flashman and a little bit of Lieber’s Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser in a thoroughly original post-apocalyptic wasteland where the machines of Baikonur are threatening to take over the world and wipe the scourge known as mankind off the face of the earth. The con-men Darger and Surplus are on a mission to the Duke of Muscovy when their caravan increasingly runs afoul of trouble and they find themselves, through their machinations, in charge of the whole enterprise. In the end, the outcome is nothing any of them could have foreseen.
