The Thanksgiving holiday has just passed here in the United States. It is a time for giving thanks. So, to the many writers who submit their work for consideration, thank you. Without your efforts there would be no Swords & Sorcery. I enjoy reading your work even if I don’t choose to purchase it. Thanks also to my readers, without whom publishing this every month would be a pointless task. For you I offer an expression of my gratitude, same as I do every month—two more stories for your reading pleasure.
In “Grey Wings and Promises”, by Louis Palmerino, a poor man makes promises he is not prepared to keep in order to save his wife and new born child. Palmerino is a Manhattan based writer. This is his first published story.
“The Blade That Seeks”, by Edward H. Parks, is the tale of a young paladin dispatched by his king to find a fabled treasure but who finds more than he is seeking. Parks’s work has previously appeared in Interstellar Fiction, Perihelion, and in one of the Third Flatiron Publishing anthologies.
As always I can be reached with questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org. Public comments can be made on our Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/SwordsAndSorceryMagazine). Swords & Sorcery also has a twitter feed, @SwordsNSorcery, where we post links to stories when they are posted. Submissions are always welcome but please see the guidelines before submitting. I’m looking for genre related reviews and critical essays as well as short fiction.
Until next month…
