    This is highly derivative sword and sorcery, with a penchant for coincidence that would embarrass Edgar Rice Burroughs, and yet it is kind of fun if you remember to drink some alcohol while reading I liked this better than the same author s first two World s End books featuring the bland Ganelon.

    The first Thongor book Lin Carter s first published novel Makes me hesitate to say anything about it, for, on the one hand, it reads like juvenilia that ought to be classified as Young Adult, while on the other, it is marketed as adult fantasy I hesitate because it lends such strong support to the opinion that fantasy has no real literary value No one under the age of, say,...
