Renegade Swords!

Find it Here!

For those in the mood for more classic sword and sorcery, you should definitely look into the recent Renegade Swords series by DMR Books. Inside you will find reprints of classic stories that have been neglected over time.

Today I would like to present to you the recent second instalment which has the exact sword of action and wonder you are looking for. If you are unfamiliar with the genre, this is the place to start your journey into it.

The description:

"Once again DMR Books delves into the vaults of the past to unearth tales of swords, sorcery, and mighty heroes. In Renegade Swords II you will read about such adventures as the struggle of Rackhir the Red Archer to rescue Tanelorn, Fal the Reiver’s encounters with darksome spirits on Samhain night, the bloody life of Hialmar of the Æsir, and more. These eight stories (many of them rarely reprinted) will surely satisfy every aficionado of heroic fantasy fiction.

"Stories included:

“The Roaming Forest” by Michael Moorcock
“To Rescue Tanelorn” by Michael Moorcock
