thumb
The Sum of All Men (1998)
(Runelords, book 1)
David Farland
"In The Runelords David Farland has created a vivid, detailed, different world that becomes perfectly believable. The characters are real, the action fast, and the sum a brilliant and engrossing novel."
thumb
The Outlanders (1998)
(LonTobyn, book 2)
David B Coe
"The Outlanders is an unusual, excellent novel of triumph and redemption. Very well done."
thumb
A Cavern of Black Ice (1999)
(Sword of Shadows, book 1)
J V Jones
"A Cavern Of Black Ice has vivid action, real characters, and a richly detailed setting. It's a splendid achievement."
thumb
Illumination (2001)
(Eiden Myr, book 1)
Terry McGarry
"Illumination is unique, a fantasy as richly complex as the sutures of an ammonite's shell. Quite marvelous!"
thumb
Gods in Darkness (2002)
(Kane)
Karl Edward Wagner
"These are the novels that returned heroic fantasy to the vitality it had when Robert E. Howard committed suicide."
thumb
Gods of Fire and Thunder (2002)
(Books of the Gods, book 5)
Fred Saberhagen
"Fred Saberhagen again shows his remarkable talent for being exotic, exciting, and comfortable all in the same work."
thumb
Kop (2007)
(Kop, book 1)
Warren Hammond
"Kop is about as good as noir crime gets since Dashiel Hammett stopped writing. Yes I know what I just said."
thumb
Elom (2008)
William H Drinkard
"Engaging characters in a story told with the feel of a myth passed down by word of mouth."
thumb
Servant (2009)
(Dark God, book 1)
John D Brown
"A complex, powerful story of a youth trying to learn who he is and what he is, with no allies he can trust in a world stalked by a monster. A book that copies nothing I have read before and which goes its own way brilliantly."
thumb
The Desert of Souls (2011)
(Dabir and Asim, book 1)
Howard Andrew Jones
"An Arabian Nights adventure as written by Robert E Howard. It is exciting, inventive, and most of all fun."
thumb

(Imperium , book 1)
Jody Lynn Nye
"An unusual story well-told, with characters it's a real pleasure to spend time with."
thumb
Southern Gods (2011)
John Hornor Jacobs
"Southern Gods is scary, smart, and effective both as Lovecraftian fiction and as a Southern Regional novel set in 1951."
thumb
Homeworld (2013)
(Homeworld, book 1)
Eric S Brown and Tony Faville
"A detailed, action-filled look at war's sacrifices at the sharp end and at war's pointless cynicism at the level of grand strategy."
