No. 32 - Flashing Swords! #4: Barbarians and Black Magicians

edited by Lin Carter

Started: October 21
Finished: October 30

Notes: Another classic collection of Sword and Sorcery stories I've been meaning to get to for some while, though I've read a couple of these stories elsewhere. Here there are stories by Jack Vance, Michael Moorcock, Katherine Kurtz, John Jakes and Poul Anderson.

Mini review: Some decent reading here, though a couple of tales that didn't do much for me. As could be expected, Moorcock's tale was the best, though a close second was John Jakes' story of Brak the barbarian.
