How to Get All the Mortu & Kyrus Stories

Okay, you know you need to get in on this.

We’re talking about Sky Hernstrom’s phenomenal Mortu & Kyrus stories. In a nutshell, these are pretty much in the spirit of Fafhrd & The Grey Mouser but dropped into The Dying Earth and written by Robert E. Howard. All those years where I said, “don’t read anything before 1980”?? All those times I felt that NOBODY was able to write anything even half as good as what I came across doing Appendix N?

I was wrong.

This is it. These are the stories people are raving over. AND YOU NEED TO HAVE THEM ALL. Here’s how to get them:

  1. Pick up The Eye of Sounnu from DMR Books. This volume has the very first Mortu & Kyrus story in it, “Mortu and Kyrus and the White City”.
  2. Grab The Penultimate Men from Pilum Press. This volume has the second Mortu & Kyrus story, “The Judgement of Daganha”. (Note: this only recently came out in ebook format, so if you were waiting on that… now’s the time to get it!)
  3. Back Sky’s current Kickstarter for the new edition of Thune’s Vision. It will include the third Mortu & Kyrus story, “Servants of the War God”.

You will not rest until you have ALL OF THESE STORIES, so get on board with this right now!!! This is the most exciting thing to happen in publishing for the past three years. Seriously, you’re going to read them all right after one another and then you’re going to tell people, “I can’t believe it, but Jeffro really was not exaggerating about how good these are!!!”


And don’t miss Sky’s appearances on these EXCELLENT shows:
