A fun badguy killfest 5 Mar. 2012
By D. Eldredge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Filled with subtle (and not so subtle) genre references, this short story is just what you'd expect from the title and cover: an adventure story reminiscent of Conan the Barbarian with a sense of humor.

Nanok of the Iron Wastes has just stolen the legendary Sunsword from the Tower of Sorrows, and pursued by some of its denizens, he barely escapes with his life. Soon Nanok realizes that he has to return to the evil tower, but this time he must kill everyone in it.

Nanok is a story takes you back to the 1980s, when action and fantasy movies didn't take themselves too seriously.

Quick fun S&S Read 22 July 2012
By Matthew Higgins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
One more sip of Michael Moorcock's too-absinthe-for-its-own-good Elric threatens to make you ill? Mix one part Marvel's old B&W Savage Sword of Conan with one part trash-talking Schwarzenegger action flick, add a splash of Lloyd Alexander's The Chronicles of Prydian and two splashes Sergio Aragones' Groo, shake violently to the consistency of frothy blood, and the resulting refreshing cocktail is Nanok and the Tower of Sorrows. Will there be a chaser Mr. Badelaire?

Conan the barbarian meets Conan the talk show host 4 Aug. 2014
By CaptGlen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This story has the funniest first line of a parody that I have ever read! (OK, pastiche-whimsy, whatever.)

Spoiler alert - the first line of the book is:
"Kill him...to death!"
End spoiler alert.

(It's a joke. First line of the book spoiler alert? Please try to keep up.)

There are several movie and modern day references woven into a Conan-like story. If your sense of humor was excised at birth, you probably won't get them. "Time to make the mutants." Just brilliant!

Fun stuff! 15 Nov. 2013
By T. Doolan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a hoot! As tongue-in-cheek as it obviously is, it still manages to be a rousing adventure tale. Any fan of S&S should treat themselves to this little gem.

Action filled & hilarious 29 July 2013
By J.M. Aucoin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A fun, epic take on the sword & sorcery genre. Plenty of over the top violence, magic, creepily hilarious woodman creature guy and much more. Nanok is to the sword & sorcery genre what 'Zorro the Gay Blade' is to Zorro and the 'Princess Bride' is for fantasies. Sure, there's some parody in the text, but it still very much part of the genre it tips it hat at,
