Appendix Z - Keith Taylor

Appendix Z - Keith Taylor

A combination of Historical, Sword and Sorcery, his Bard series (5 books) is an enjoyable take on the bard of history and the bard of more popular fancy. I don't know if he is a gamer, but the series is wonderful inspiration for gamers. I can recommend the first three books in the series. I stopped reading somewhere shortly after starting book 4 (and can't remember why) and only recently picked up book 5.

He has a long list of short stories but the work is a bit too recent for me (I've never read any of the newer Weird Tales magazines or caught the work he did in the 70's).

Bard III The Wild Sea
Bard IV Ravens' Gathering
