Book Review: Flashing Swords! #4, edited by Lin Carter

Flashing Swords! #4: Barbarians and Black MagiciansFlashing Swords! #4: Barbarians and Black Magicians by Lin Carter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read for the High Fantasy Reading Challenge and the Genre Non-Fiction Reading Challenge.

This is an outstanding collection of some of the best in classic sword and sorcery writing! I had heard of all of these fine fantasy writers, but had never yet read one of them. This is an exdellent sampler of some excellent writing, and it gives you a feel of why they are so popular and respected in the field. Lin Carter‘s observations on the Sword and Sorcery genre, and the writers who write it, is also a fascinating read. I am thinking it’s time we created another such guild.
