Sinopse: «Terrifying barbarians, cunning mages, and daring heroes run rampant through these exceptional classics of the exciting sword & sorcery genre. From Robert E. Howard to Jane Yolen, this fast-paced anthology is a chronological gathering of influential, inventive, and entertaining fantasy adventure stories. In "Tower of the Elephant," Conan takes up jewel thievery but, as is his wont, proves far better with his sword. "The Flamer Bringers" finds anti-hero Elric infiltrating a band of bloodthirsty mercenaries and outwitting a powerful sorcerer. "Become a Warrior" is the unexpected tale of a child who loses all she holds dear, only to gain unforeseen power and unlikely revenge. Further entries come from early sword & sorcery legends such as Jack Vance and Catherine Louise (who wrote as C. L.) Moore, the next wave of talents including Fritz Leiber and Michael Moorcock, and modern trendsetters like Karl Edward Wagner and David Drake. An original story from Michael Shea rounds out this essential anthology, which will particularly appeal to fans of action-oriented fantasy titles such as the Lord of the Rings and the Song of Fire and Ice series.»

Normalcy was a majority concept, the standard of many and not the standard of just one man. Robert Neville
O homem que obedece a Deus, não precisa de outra autoridade. Petr Chelčický
Ao mesmo tempo que ali estava tudo igual, não estava você lá, não está teu passado, não está nada. Quer dizer: só você sabe que esteve ali. A parede, os prédios, não guardam a gente. Nós só nos guardamos a nós mesmos. Só valemos nós connosco. Fora daí é literatura, é poesia, é arte. Ferreira Gullar
Yes, I am a woman of the law. And there are lots of laws. But if they don't offer us justice, then they aren't laws! They are just lines drawn in the sand by men who would stand on your back for power and glory. Sartana
