Flashing Swords 3 - Lin Carter

In the introduction to the third Flashing Swords anthology, Carter says they let two more people into their Sword and Sorcery writer club - Katherine Kurtz, and Avram Davidson, who is in this volume.

That being said, this one isn't up to the quality of the first two.

Flashing Swords 3 : 1 Two Yards of Dragon - L. Sprague de Camp
Flashing Swords 3 : 2 The Frost Monstreme - Fritz Leiber
Flashing Swords 3 : 3 Spider Silk - Andre Norton
Flashing Swords 3 : 4 The Curious Custom of the Turjan Seraad - Lin Carter
Flashing Swords 3 : 5 Caravan to Illiel - Avram Davidson

Draco travel inspiration.

Bored in the pub, cold sailing adventure appeals.

With a title like that you won't be disappointed, there are giant ones, and half-human hybrids. So they have to hope the blind witch girl can handle her fledgling powers.

A bit more hairdressing and silliness than swordplay for Almalric and Ubonidus.

I miss my old sword, this one doesn't like me.
