    Any recommendations? I recently bought the anthology Swords and Dark Magic which is supposed to be a re-imagining of the S&S genre with stories from Abercrombie, Erikson, Moorcock, and others. What I read of the book I really enjoyed (I sort of jumped around) but some of it didn't really feel like S&S. Didn't really capture Robert E. Howard, Fritz Lieber, and others who laid the foundation.

    I really love this style of fantasy but it seems to always get swept under the carpet in favor of epic fantasy. If anyone knows of any new or old S&S worth checking out, let me know. I always enjoy a good pulp-ish romp!
