Lost Dorsai by Gordon R. Dickson

Description: This volume fills in some elements of the overall Cycle and gives us some insight into some of the smaller details, but if you skip it you really won't be missing out on too much when you consider the overall picture. Basically this is two stories, one fairly long and the other fairly short. The first one "Lost Dorsai" is actually quite good, showing the flipside of the Dorsai philosophy, about a warrior who refuses to fight, but Dickson makes the interesting argument that being a Dorsai isn't a switch you can flip on and off and sometimes having to fight doesn't mean you need to use weapons. It's one of the best written portions of the series and even if it has little bearing on the rest of the books, the book is worth the read just for that story. Also, the tale finally delves into the relationship between the famous Graeme twins, Ian and Kensie.

Also in this series are Antagonist, Dorsai, Necromancer, Other, Soldier, Ask Not!, Tactics of Mistake, The Chantry Guild, The Dorsai Companion, The Final Encyclopedia, The Spirit of Dorsai, Young Bleys Return to the Gordon R. Dickson page.
