You have no friends in the Sword & Sorcery: "An earthier sort of fantasy" group. Invite some »
This may be more of an confirmation survey than a poll. Here is my two topic suggestion for our group reads for Sept-Oct. Please vote for them to reinforce participation/concurrence, or write in an alternative.

Bloodstone by Karl Edward Wagner Gods in Darkness The Complete Novels of Kane by Karl Edward Wagner Darkness Weaves (Kane, #1) by Karl Edward Wagner

Karl Edward Wagner's Kane to go along with the the read-along already in progress with THE DARK CRUSADE PODCAST: https://thedarkcrusade.wordpress.com/

Let's read Kane as podcaster Jordan Douglas Smith does. Episodes 2.1,2.2, and 2.3 covered 'Undertow,' 'Two Suns Setting', and Bloodstone....more episodes to come

Great blog and podcast will continue through Oct.
