BEHOLD! the clash of war. Steel upon steel and heroes fighting shield to shield. The only true victory is a brave death and the destruction of your enemies. These stories harken back to a barbaric past that never was. A time when heroic men and women cut glory from the cloth of a sorcery-filled world and stole gold from the hands of the gods themselves. This is fiction that takes no prisoners. No quarter asked. No quarter given.
This is SWORD AND SORCERY.

Thunder on the Battlefield: Sorcery based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A companion collection to Thunder on the Battlefield: Swords, this second anthology offers some intriguing female heroes with foul moods, strange forms, and powerful loves, loyalties and affections. Ghosts of a distant world that might be our future, bombed or sunken and burned, fill these tales, changing direction and dragging their readers to lands of screaming seas and mysterious pasts. Complex, multifaceted foes, sometimes lyrical prose, dark evils, curious angels and cherubians, portals, faith and war; this collection has it all. And there’s even a Halfling hiding somewhere in there! “I don’t want to be a warrior’s wife,” says one character. “I want to be a warrior.” And a fine one she is, well-portrayed, inspiring me to look for more books by her author, S. H. Roddy. Then there’s the wonder of finding Steven Shrewsbury’s Gorias, remembered from longer tales, and then... and then... It’s another fine collection of sword and sorcery to ensorcel fans of the genre, and another fine read. Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy during the blog tour and just wish I’d got around to reading it sooner.
