New authors and collections. Somewhere between epic historical fantasy, sword and sorcery and Tolkien-esque fantasy exists a thick vein of storytelling that would make Robert E Howard and H.G. Wells proud. Following the great success of our Gothic Fantasy, deluxe edition short story compilations, Ghosts, Horror, Science Fiction, Murder Mayhem and Crime & Mystery we present a compilation of savage swordplay, and high magic, of daring deeds and gaudy battles, in a blazing mix of classic and brand new writing, with authors from the US, Canada, and the UK. Classic authors include: Clark Ashton Smith, John Buchan, Snorri Sturluson, Homer, A. Merritt, Geoffrey Chaucer, Andrew Lang, Howard Pyle, William Morris, Eric Rücker Eddison, with the text of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and extracts from Beowulf, The Nibelungenlied and The Song of Roland.
