A collection of short stories all starring our favourite, ancient Finder, Gordianus. Normally I am not a fan of shorts, but these were all good. Rich and detailed, plus, clearly, short stories, with a beginning and end. They also wove together well historical facts and known characters. ( )

A great collection of Gordianus short stories. Better than the first collection, I would say. Especially enjoyed "If A Cyclops Could Vanish in the Blink of an Eye" about Bethesda and a cat, but really they are all good stories that get right to the interesting action. Great to learn more about little bits of Roman life. ( )

Okay story. Obviously this is one of the shorter, in-between-the-series book, so it doesn't have so much depth. However, it was fun reading about the gladiators and learning all about their environment, living conditions, etc. Good enough read, but wasn't my favorite or anything. ( )

More short stories about Gordianus the Finder set between "Roman Blood" and "Catalina's Riddle". Again a mix of out-and-out fiction and stories based on incidents mentioned in ancient sources.

Bethesda doesn't put in much of an appearance in this collection -- we only really see her in the Cyclops story. On the other hand we do get to see Eco growing up. I particularly liked the character Lucius Claudius, a recurring character in the short stories, but presumably we'll never get to see more of him. All in all that last story is a bit depressing. ( )

In 'A Gladiator Only Dies Once', Steven Saylor collects nine Gordianus the Finder tales he has written over the years. These stories are nice straightforward detective investigations with Gordianus as the upstanding honest gumshoe (gum-sandal?). His clients tend to be drawn from the patrician class of late Republican Rome - the supposed cream of society, but some of this cream has definitely spoiled.

Saylor is scrupulously accurate with historical details as he takes the reader to Sicily where he encounters Cicero and the secret of Archimedes' Tomb or to the luxuriant gardens and cherry orchards of the epicurean Lucullus. These are just two of the many historical characters in Saylor's stories. The resolution to Saylor's puzzles often lies not so much in the 'who did it', which is sometimes fairly obvious, as in 'why did they do it', generally a more interesting inquiry.

An appendix explains the provenance of each story and its connection to Roman history. A timeline of Gordianus' life will be a handy reference for fans of the Roma Sub Rosa series.

Highly recommended. ( )
