Swords of Steel Omnibus Edition Coming October 16


DMR Books burst onto the sword and sorcery scene four years ago with the release of the anthology Swords of Steel. Editor D.M. Ritzlin summoned the greatest practitioners of epic heavy metal to pen tales of heroic fantasy and cosmic horror, the likes of which had not been seen in many decades. Featuring the talents of such musician/authors as Byron A. Roberts (Bal-Sagoth), Howie K. Bentley (Cauldron Born), and E.C. Hellwell (Manilla Road), Swords of Steel proved to be an underground hit among both metalheads and jaded pulp fantasy fans. Two more volumes followed. All three were published in “classic size” paperback format. Distribution was extremely limited, making it difficult for fans outside the US to acquire copies.

In a few weeks that will change! DMR Books is proud to present the Swords of Steel Omnibus Edition, which collects all 23 stories from the three original volumes, plus three new tales. The massive trade paperback version weighs in at a whopping 454 pages! In addition, a digital version is now available for pre-order. The regular price for the digital edition is $4.99, but throughout the month of October it will be on sale for only $2.99.
