First UK Omnibus edition, first print hardback of STONES OF POWER: THE SIPSTRASSI OMNIBUS, by David Gemmell and published by Legend / Random House Ltd., London in 1992. Jacket illustration by Mark Harrison. This is an omnibus edition of four of David Gemmell's best-loved novels collected in one book, with an introduction by the author. The titles included are 'Ghost King', 'Last Sword of Power', 'Wolf in Shadow' and 'The Last Guardian'.

The book is in very good condition (Clean red cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine which has a very small dent on the front top edge and minor creasing to spine edges) with slight wear to the illustrated dust jacket, which is not price clipped (light creasing to the edges and a couple of markings which are only visible under the light, a 2 - 3 inch long closed tear to the bottom spine corner which has been repaired inside with sticky tape, and the top spine edge has been supported with a piece of tape, there is a light liguid stain along some parts of the inside the jacket edges which aren't visible from outside). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions. Inevitable, very slight lean due to the weight of the book, which has no trouble standing unaided.

Widely regarded as the finest writer of heroic fantasy, David Gemmell was born in London, England, in 1948. Expelled from school at sixteen, he became a bouncer, working nightclubs in Soho. Born with a silver tongue, Gemmell rarely needed to bounce customers, relying instead on his gift of gab to talk his way out of trouble. This talent eventually led him to jobs as a freelancer for the London Daily Mail, the Daily Mirror, and the Daily Express. His first novel, Legend, was published in 1984 and went on to become a classic and has remained in print ever since.

He became a full-time writer in 1986. His books consistently top the London Times bestseller list. He went on to write over thirty novels. Gemmell's works display violence, yet also explores themes in honour, loyalty and redemption. With over one million copies sold, his work continues to sell worldwide. David Andrew Gemmell died in 2006. In 2008, the David Gemmell Legend Award was established, intended to 'restore fantasy to its proper place in the literary pantheon'.

This series is known by several names. The entire series deals with the Stones of Power, also known as the Sipstrassi. The first two books contain a re-imagining of the Arthurian legend. The last three novels involve the protagonist Jon Shannow. The first four novels were published in this omnibus edition as Stones of Power: A Sipstrassi Omnibus. Sipstrassi is also used in the Greek series by Aristotle to perform feats of magic
