Tales of Attluma

Read this a couple of months ago and really enjoyed it: another DMR ebook collection of short stories, all with inspirational swords & sorcery ideas. It was the first I'd read of David C. Smith, and will definitely try something else by him based on this.

Re: Tales of Attluma

I recently read Renegade Swords and really enjoyed it! I appreciate Ritzlin’s dedication to classic reprints. I also like his editorship (it was an experience to read a “good” story by Lin Carter). I expect I’m slowly going to make my way through the DMR library. Maybe we should start a DMR Books reading club channel.

Indeed: I'm reading The Eye of Sounnu now (well-written, with a subtle humor of Vancian stamp), from DMR. I'll have to check out Renegade Swords.

The Eye of Sounnu was great.

And sweat at the daily round,
While in my soul forever
The drums of Pictdom sound?”
