Sept-Oct Poll - Goodreads Sword and Sorcery group

Sword & Sorcery Group on Goodreads

We are polling for our Sept-Oct groupreads.
Thanks to moderator "Jack" mak-morn for setting up this poll. All are welcome to vote and to participate in any way.


Poll
Make a selection for our Sept-Oct Group Read. Top two usually win. Thank you for all of the good suggestions in the discussion thread. Richard nominated The Witcher books to coincide with the upcoming Netflix TV adaptation of The Witcher. The Fultz selection narrowly missed out as a Group Read last time, so I added it this month to see if it could make it to the top.

Jan Feb 2019 Groupread: Anthologies



The Sword & Sorcery Group on Goodreads invites you to join them this Jan-Feb as we read:

Anthologies (Link)

Any anthology will do (i.e., current magazine like Tales from the Magician's Skull, Skelos, Heroic Fantasy Quarter online or print). Checkout the Survey/Poll for ideas and to post what you are reading: Poll Link

Plenty of old and new to choose from. You owe it to yourself to try one of the new magazines or dig up an old book.

Banner Credits L->R




This Jan-Feb groupread continues an annual tradition since at least 2014 (though many shared the topic of Anthologies with another).
