Heroic Fantasy - Swords & Sorcery

The following covers are from various heroic fantasy novels or collections, mostly paperback originals published by Ace, DAW and Dell. The Flashing Swords II cover is surely by Frank Frazetta, though it is not acknowledged in the publishing credits, nor is the artist of the second collection Heroic Visions. The latter book I'm pretty sure I purchased because it had a new Fafhrd & Gray Mouser novella called "The Curse of the Smalls and the Stars". I loved the Fafhrd & Gray Mouser series by Fritz Leiber - swords and sorcery fiction with class, humour and panache. I will be displaying the covers in the next entry.

Next are some feminist heroic fantasy collections, Amazons I & II edited by Jessica Amanda Salmonson. Cover Art by Michael Whelan.
