Flame and Crimson: A History of Sword-and-Sorcery
Author: Murphy, Brian
Published at: 16/01/2020
ISBN: 1683902440

Flame and Crimson: A History of Sword-and-Sorcery provides much-needed definitions and critical rigour to this misunderstood fantasy subgenre. It traces its origins in the likes of historical fiction, to its birth in the pages of Weird Tales, to its flowering in the Frank Frazetta-illustrated Lancer Conan Saga series in the 1960s. It covers its “barbarian bust” beneath a heap of second-rate pastiche, a pack of colourful and wildly entertaining and awful sword-and-sorcery films, and popular culture second life in the likes of Dungeons & Dragons and the bombast of heavy metal music.

The President's Daughter
Author: Clinton Bill
Published at: 10/06/2021
ISBN: 1529125677

This book is exactly what you would expect from acclaimed author, James Patterson, and a former president of the US, Bill Clinton. The book is short, thankfully, on technology and long on character development. The plot gallops along with like a loose stallion, never halting for even a breath. I had to leave it a couple of times because my eyes were getting tired. It took me two days to read. I never, not one time was distracted. Excellent book.
