Some reviews of our first volume:
"This is an entertaining anthology of new sword and sorcery with a diverse range of unique tales."
"A varied collection of stories. Not to be overlooked. Available in paperback and e-book from Amazon. And be sure to keep an eye out for Volume Two out next year with more art by Jim Pitts. Recommended!"
"There is also a refreshing hint of the good old days in Swords & Sorceries: Tales of Heroic Fantasy spiced up with the approach of a new generation of fantasy writers."
"What an enjoyable book. Quality sword and sorcery stories and amazing art by Jim Pitts."
"Of all the anthologies put out featuring the works of contemporary S&S authors, I think this may be the best I’ve read to date."

One man's shattered past...
One woman's lone quest...
The past is gone. When the nukes hit, the world was plunged into the darkness of the long night.
The countdown to extinction had begun...
Meet Cal—rider and drifter of the empty highways, seeking to lose himself in the oblivion of his own fevered nightmare... Then there's the mysterious Sioux huntress; bound for a secret location only she knows. A woman who may carry with her the hopes and dreams of a new born paradise...
Together they must battle feral punks, flesh hungry mutants, a crazed dictator and the fallout terrors of a nuclear hell if they are to make it to the far edge of the world.
To a destination that may not even exist...
