I’m curious what Tony thought of the katana Well Drinker. Wasn’t the ghost writer of that novel sort of straying out of bounds by giving a sword a kind of supernatural power? You can’t say that Muramasa simply imagined that the sword had power because it could cut through a man like a chain saw.

It wasn’t really a Casca novel – it was a Jinto Muramasa novel with Casca tagging along as a convenient by-stander.

I figured it was a takeoff of the tale of Grasscutter

If African Mercenary was a rip-off of The Wild Geese (which it clearly was) then I’m not surprised to hear another book was ‘influenced’ by another story.

Did that sword really have power in the story, or did the fellow bearing it just believe it had power?

For me I dunno, it would appear the blade was so well made that it appeared to have powers, but I don’t think it was intended to have.
