I’ll say if anyone can tell you how to write an action scene, whether it’s fisticuffs, fighting with sword or even bullwhip, Mr. Glenn is the man to do it.

Some of the book is reminiscences of fight scenes he’s choreographed for movies and TV. Portions are histories of various weapons or martial arts disciplines and their development and creeds. There are excerpts from novels, both Mr. Glenn’s sword-and--sorcery stories, as well as from Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, et al., as examples
