Well thank YOU for the shout-out Mr. O’Neill!

And don’t forget Ryan Harvey’s spectacular review of Return of the Sword back in 2008 http://www.blackgate.com/fiction-review-the-return-of-the-sword/…though it could use an updated cover image (from right here http://www.roguebladesentertainment.com/products/rb-presents/rb-presents-anthologies/return-of-the-sword/)

Seems like an interesting anthology. 🙂

Could someone please offer me a definition of Soul & Sandal? I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Unless it’s a typographical error and meant be Sword and Sandal.

Oh! I see, that makes sense 😀 Thank you!
