Evil emperors. Powerful curses. Crazed were-gibbons?

Some heroes need to polish their derring-do, while some villains require the know-how of advice columnists to be truly evil. Some magicians should never be left alone with their spells, and some gods aren't really all they're cracked up to be. It's a veritable chorus line of worthless warriors, simpleton sorcerers

Overview

Evil emperors. Powerful curses. Crazed were-gibbons?

Some heroes need to polish their derring-do, while some villains require the know-how of advice columnists to be truly evil. Some magicians should never be left alone with their spells, and some gods aren't really all they're cracked up to be. It's a veritable chorus line of worthless warriors, simpleton sorcerers, and hapless henchmen.

The life of an adventurer isn't all piles of treasure and damsels in distress, but there are sights to see, quests to complete, and jokes around every corner. So grab your giant axe, vorpal sword, or mystical grimoire-if you are of a mind-and prepare to meet your destiny with a smile on your face.

Includes stories by Lawrence C. Connolly, Murray J. D. Leeder, Jim C. Hines, and K. D. Wentworth.

What People are Saying About This

Patrick Thomas
"Bash Down the Door and Slice Open the Badguy takes all the old familiar swords & sorcery standards and even a few cliches, turns them on their ear, rips out their funny bones and beats them over the head with it. Lots of fun."--(Patrick Thomas, author of the Murphy's Lore series and the "Dear Cthulhu" column in Cthulhu Sex Magazine)
Timons Esaias
"It's refreshing to turn to broadswords for belly-laughs, and sorcery for snickers, both of which this anthology delivers. With work by established authors Lawrence C. Connolly, K. D. Wentworth and Jim C. Hines-along with good entries by soon-to-be-rising stars like A. G. Devitt and Susan Sielinski-this is a solid collection of sly and silly swords and sorcery tales."--(Timons Esaias, author of The Influence of Pigeons on Architecture and winner of the Asimov's Readers Award)
John DeChancie
"A real treat for fans of swords & sorcery."--(John DeChancie, author of the Castle Perilous series)
