Conan: Songs of the Dead

Sunday, November 19th, 2006 | Posted by Web Master

Joe Lansdale, auhor of the Hap Collins novels, brings his unique brand of mojo storytelling to Dark Horse Comics to tell a brand new tale of Conan the Cimmerian in a five-issue limited series illustrated by the brilliant Timothy Truman.

“Lansdale’s Conan is rough-hewn, with an earthy sense of humor that may surprise longtime fans… There’s enough action in the first two issues to warm the heart of any sword & sorcery fan.”

Join Charles Rutledge as he talks with Lansdale about this exciting new series, which follows Conan and his old comrade Alvazar into the Stygian desert in a rolicking adventure that begins with the theft of a holy artifact, and soon involves priests of the snake god Set, a quest to a strange temple, a seductive female ghost, and a horde of flesh-hungry zombies!


Horrorscope Review: Black Gate 9

Sunday, November 12th, 2006 | Posted by Web Master

Captivating… sophisticated… This is complex, emotional fantasy at its finest.

Horrorscope, the Australian webzine of Dark Fiction, has posted a feature review of Black Gate 9 by Shane Jiraiya Cummings.

I was immediately struck by the excellent embellishments and illustrations… Editor John O’Neill has lavishly added side-features like extended author bios with book covers. Black Gate also has a healthy complement of non-fiction including book and role-playing game reviews and an exhaustive feature on the awarding of retro-Hugo awards.

Read the complete review to see why Black Gate continues to gather acclaim as one of the best fantasy magazines on the market!
