HEROES of the FALLEN: Reviewed by Bruce Durham


"Mighty voice for sword & sorcery", author Bruce Durham grants me a splendid review on Heroes of the Fallen HERE.

I consider Bruce a friend and a great writer, so I am very pleased he took the time to post his thoughts on my first novel. I especially appreciated - "Heroes of the Fallen works best as an homage to heroic fantasy, the type of fantasy one would expect in works by Gemmell, Erikson, Burroughs and Howard, the type of fantasy bursting with larger-than-life characters and lush, exotic imagery."

Thanks Bruce

Bruce has had over twenty short stories published and even a graphic novel The Marsh God (the first thing of his I ever read) Coming up next he is sharing a TOC with quite a number of renowned speculative authors in Lawyers in Hell

congrats on the great review. I read The Marsh God myself and thought it was quite good too. I may have met Bruce at Cross Plains. Not sure. I see him standing in the Howard house in the pic.

Yep, sure wish I could make it to Howard Days this year...but not yet...

Hey Charles, I was at Howard Days in 2006. I'd love to attend this year because of its significance, but it's not looking good. Glad you enjoyed both the review and The Marsh God GN.
