The Skull Greets His Worthies On The Day of Might!

In the Lands of the Skull — Today is the Mightiest of Days!

Rejoice, mortals, for today is the day to celebrate all things sword-and-sorcery! Today, Tales From the Magician’s Skull editor Howard Andrew Jones is joined by that Mighty Bone-Apart of Buckle and Swash, the Magician’s Skull himself, as they discuss both the old glories and new worthies of sword-and-sorcery!

Join Howard and the Skull below for a celebration of both past and future fantastic fiction on this mightiest of all days! Learn what they plan to read today, about new releases from Rogue Blades (Neither Beg Nor Yield, Hither Came Conan) and DMR Books (Adrian Cole’s Germanicus, Lord of Eagles), the first two newly released books in Howard’s own Hanuvar series, plus the standalone edition of John C. Hocking’s Conan serial Black Starlight, and James Enge’s sixth full-length tale of Morlock, The Wide World’s End.

By book and blade, we celebrate this mighty day!

Be sure to enjoy last year’s Day of Might celebration as well. To catch up on the latest from Howard, check out his many fantasy series, or learn his thoughts on fiction and writing, be sure to visit  his website,

And as always, the Skull’s cyber minions toil electronically to further the cause of sword-and-sorcery appreciation week in, and week out, with a variety of articles, essays, and reviews of great works old and new. A great place to begin is with our Where to Start articles, which break down some of the more complicated or confusing bibliographies for the benefit of readers new to a particular author. Our Short Sorcery and Book Reviews categories look at classic short and novel length tales respectively, and Classic Covers celebrates the rich array of creative art so integral to fantastic fiction. Of course, browsing by author on the Tales From the Magician’s Skull website will yield even more reflections on the greats, such as Robert E. Howard, Fritz Leiber, Jack Vance, Michael Moorcock, C.L. Moore, Clark Ashton Smith, Leigh Brackett, Poul Anderson, and Karl Edward Wagner — to name just a few.
