Luthien’s Gamble


The thing that got me loving some R. A. Salvatore is that like Fritz Lieber his work reminds me of Dungeons and Dragons quests. Fritz Lieber was inspirational for Gary Gygax while he was creating D&D. R. A. Salvatore wrote Forgotten Realms novels and his work is inspired by game play.

Read a pdf of The Ministry, Chapter One of Luthien’s Gamble hosted on R. A. Salvatore’s website. Although this is Chapter One it is also a self contained short story.

There are more excerpts from Salvatore’s novels also available on his home page, including some featuring his most famous character Drizzt Do’Urden.
