is a community for discussion of the sword & sorcery sub-genre of fantasy literature. It’s not for discussion of role-playing games or other kinds of games. You can discuss sword & sorcery written during the pulp era, or stuff written by more recent writers. If you like Robert E. Howard’s stories, or Fritz Leiber’s tales of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, or C. L. Moore’s Jirel of Joiry stories, or Michael Moorcock’s Elric books, or Karl Edward Wagner’s Kane stories, this is the place for you. We’ll also be discussing sword & sorcery in movies and TV (such as Xena
). Some historical fiction will also come within our orbit.
