Barbarian Swordsman

(1969)
(The first book in the Kothar series)
A novel by

 
 
This is Gardner F Fox's first paperback attempt at writing a Sword & Sorcery story. There are 5 books in this series. Mr. Fox's was heavily inspired by Robert E. Howard's Sword & Sorcery stories: Conan, Kull & Bran Mak Mor. From the world beyond--or past--time Kothar comes. His Sword & Sorcery books read like Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. All they need is a great Game Master to orchestrate the adventure.
From out of the deepest, most violent recesses of mankind's collective memory, Kothar the gigantic barbarian strides, the enchanted sword Frostfire glittering in his mighty hand. Lusty, hot-blooded, masterful, unafraid of things real or unreal, Kothar dominates the misty, bloody world before recorded time. Yet, though Kothar's world existed in another age--perhaps another dimension--it springs vividly to life. Mapped, charted, chronicled, Kothar's fantastic world suddenly becomes real--the sorcerers, dragons, witches, evil potions, unspeakable monsters. And Kothar, an epic hero for any age, overshadows everything.

Includes the stories:

"The Sword of the Sorcerer"
"The Treasure in the Labyrinth"
"The Woman in the Witch-Wood"
with an introduction by Donald MacIvers, Ph.D.
