Fencing Lesson in an SF Novel

Roberson’s Interminable Ramble: Free Fiction Friday: A Fencing Lesson
Chris Roberson, who has written a few books (including Paragea, which I reviewed and loved) has been excerpting chapters from a “backstory” novel involving one of the main characters from Paragaea, called Set the Seas on Fire.
I’ve browsed STSOF when it was available freely electronically, as a prep to reading Paragaea. I am linking to this excerpt because of the things Chris does in this chapter.
He shows how a fencing lesson might really go…and I think its invaluable to RPGers for that reason alone. Enjoy.

  1. I think one of the best things about Zelazny’s Amber series was the descriptive sword play. I actually went and learned a bit of fencing just so I could re-read the Corwin-Eric fight with more appreciation.
