The Book Of Swords

by Fred Saberhagen

The Books of Swords

The gods decide to devise a Game of great fun: their colleague Vulcan forges 12 magic Swords, each with a different power, and scatters them across the world. Play begins in grand and gloriously violent fashion as Swords are gathered and used to control chance, enhance fortune, and change destiny. The holder of a Sword wields power undreamed — power to change the world and the holder.

To add to the enjoyment, foolish mortals are invited to join, risking their puny lives. Demons and elementals need no invitation. But something had gone wrong in the forging, and the Game —

Death Dealer

by Rudolf Höss

SS Kommandant Rudolph Höss (1900?1947) was history's greatest mass murderer, personally supervising the extermination of approximately two million people, mostly Jews, at the death camp in Auschwitz, Poland. Death Dealer is a new, unexpurgated translation of Höss’s autobiography, written before, during, and after his trial. This edition includes rare photos, the minutes of the Wannsee Conference (where the Final Solution was decided and coordinated), original diagrams of the camps, a detailed chronology of important events at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Höss's final letters to his family, and a new foreword by Auschwitz survivor Primo Levi. Death Dealer stands as one of the most important?and chilling?documents of the Holocaust.

Bloodstone

by S.E. Akers

Bloodstone (Talisman- Volume 2)

A tragic, unforeseeable incident at the graveyard leaves Shiloh banging her head against a tombstone. To make matters worse, her family continues their mean-spirited alienation, in spite of her father’s recent death. That tension, coupled with the isolation she feels building from everyone around her, sends the supernatural Talisman sinking further into defeat. Even her new “destined” life starts to threaten the relationships of what loved ones she has left. After a harrowing encounter with three possessed thugs at the Drive-In, her magical mentor, Beatrix, insists she head out of town on an upcoming class trip for a much-needed siesta. Unfortunately for Shiloh, her study-trip turns out to be anything but when she darkens the door of the wrong Voodoo shop and finds herself smack dab in the middle of a supernatural “hot mess”. Now, Shiloh must fight to survive the volatile vacation, keep her classmates out of harm's way, and find a way to set things aright before her friend’s soul is lost forever.

The Steven Erikson books don't belong here. They're all the fate-of-the-world themed or at least fate-of-the-nation. They're much too ambitious for the Sword and Sorcery label. As are the Terry Goodkind books, none of his series are S
