Flashing Swords! Demons and Daggers.

It was first published in hardcover by Nelson Doubleday in December 1981 as a selection in its Science Fiction Book Club, and in paperback by Dell Books simultaneously. Flashing Swords! Demons and Daggers. Ron Miller (hardcover) Richard Corben (paperback).

Thrill to five daring exploits by the masters of heroic fantasy as their protagonists rally to battle the most awesome forces of the universe.
  • As the fifth, final, and somewhat belatedly published (at the time) volume of the Flashing Swords! series, I expected to be underwhelmed by this book, especially as by now Lin Carter had said all he could about S&S in the first four introductions, and then he said that this time he'd pick some new authors rather than the members of SAGA such as Vance, Leiber and Moorcock. I was wrong. This book is a very worthy sword & sorcery anthology. The contents:

    "Tower of Ice" (Dilvish) by Roger Zelazny (who was a SAGA member)
    "A Thief in Korianth" by C. J. Cherryh
    "Parting Gifts" by Diane Duane
    "A Dealing with Demons" (Ebenezum) by Craig Shaw Gardner
    "The Dry Season" by Tanith Lee

    All of those stories were good, and Cherryh's "Korianth" story was excellent, reminiscent of Leiber's Lankhmar in setting but still unique and distinct. I was displeased to learn that this was the only such story she wrote, and that no more Korianth tales exist. Zelazny's Dilvish stuff was also good, and Gardner's Ebenezum was light hearted but yet not at all out of place (and he did go on to write 6 or books about the characters who made their debut here, which I plan to acquire in the fullness of time).

    If that kind of thing is important to you, 3 of the 5 authors here are women (and some are gay women). All I care about is that they write a good story, and all 5 certainly are that. By 1981, when this was published you can tell that pop-culture had embraced Conan and such to a degree, and that is reflected in the works themself: its no longer the outer darkness of fringe genre publishing, although a long way from the inner sanctum of "literature" as yet.

    When I look back at the Flashing Swords! series as a whole, you can't deny the impact on modern fantasy a lot of this stuff had, for all its now largely forgotten - although bits of are now part of the canon of the Dying Earth, Elric, and Fafhrd & the Mouser, its not generally known this is what it was written for. Anthologies like this aren't made these days, as a rule, and that's a shame.

  • By now the series is played out (5 books in all). As always, for those really into the genre, it's not bad stuff; though, one can see why the series was ended by the time you get to the last short story. It was the same way with Howard's ouvre. Probably why he kept trying different "heroes" before he rested on Conan for the bulk of his writings.
