Calling all Sword and Sorcery fans!




Open call to all you Sword and Sorcery types out there!

Are you a author, artist, blogger, game creator, or just a really big fan of S&S? I want to hear from you!

I am looking for contributors, you know people that would like to do a guest blog post, write an article, write a guest review, spotlight their art or other creative endeavors. I would like to provide you a platform to get the word out on your S&S project or maybe just your love of the sub-genre. I am not talking free advertising, you have to do a little work here. So lets work together bloggers share and share alike, lets team up! I want to get my blog out to more people and so do you. Most important, I want to share all I can and let as many people as I can know about all the goings on in the Sword and Sorcery community.

So your not a author, artist, blogger, or game creator with something to promote, but you love S&S, give me a shout. Are you are just a fan and want to write about your favorite books, art, your cool collection, or whatever? lets talk.

I am no S&S expert, I know there are some out there but hey, no need to be one to express what you like or your opinions. No judging here.

So please share this post around. If you know someone that would be perfect for this let them know, or let me know about them.

I am really not looking for anything out of this, I just want to provide a platform for what I really like and share with as many like minded people as I can.

So get in touch!


Thanks everybody! Can’t wait to hear from you all!

  1. I’m over at The Vanishing Tower blog. My personal project is a completed TRPG for role playing pulpy sword & sandals adventures a la Conan and Thongor. I have completed a supplement for it and have a book of magic and a book on adventures, plus mass combat mechanics which I need to complete. My goal is to make USR Sword & Sorcery a great rules-lite game for playing your favorite S&S adventures!

  2. I’ve been a fan of Sword & Sorcery ever since my Dad lent me his Conan books that Lancer Books published.
    I do have a small blog I’ve only just started but I’d be more than happy to review something S&S related (Conan, pethaps? lol), maybe a review might even help my blog get traction and grow 🙂

    I’ll send an email to confirm the above 🖒

      1. Hello.

        I apologise it has been so long since I last responded and said I would contribute something towards Swords & Sorcery. If the opportunity is still possible, I would like to help. Cheers.


  3. I can blame my dad for my interest in S&S. I remember when I was in elementary or early middle school I had run out of books to read and he just handed me The Hobbit. When I was older he got me into Terry Goodkind. It’s progressed a lot from there. 🙂 🙂

  4. I started out in S&S with REH’s Solomon Kane, then dove into Conan. I’ve written a couple of S&S shorts and recently released a novellete called “Swordcrossed Frostbite.”

    I also have been starting a magazine (StoryHack) that has had a Sword & Sorcery story or two, and is sure to have more.
