..and here's what Steve Barnes had to say about Griots.
"Stories of rage and revenge, of madness and magic, of love, hate, and sacrifice..the world of myth is the map of a people's secret heart. GRIOTS offers an intense buffet, ragingly poetic glimpses of a landscape ignored by both contemporary and classic fantasy. I dare you to read it and not regret there haven't been a thousand more of its kind."
--Steven Barnes, author of LION'S BLOOD
