Took a trip to one of my favorite bookstores recently. I was able to pick up all of these vintage Sword and Sorcery greats! I have been searching for a while now to add these to my collection, but never seem to find them locally. My local used bookstore actually had exactly what I was looking for. My lucky day!
I can’t wait to enjoy these new books! I love collecting vintage Sword and Sorcery. Any tips or recommendations on where to find more? Any stories of your own great book haul’s? Let me know!
