Book Review: The Reign of Wizardry by Jack Williamson


Ok this was a fun one. It's like Conan, Clash of the Titans and Sword and the Sorcerer all rolled into one. Except that it was written over 30 years before any of those stories were a glimmer in their author's eye. 


Written by Jack Williamson in 1940, it's incredible how well his writing has held up over these past decades. I felt as though it could have just as easily been written in the late 70's to mid 80's, and been a sequel to any of the aforementioned stories.

Now let's talk about that fantastic cover art, as that's what drew me to read it in the first place. Classic Frazetta, it's like the creatures are alive and will begin moving with a stop-motion-like quality worthy of Harryhausen at any moment.

Great stuff and a quick little read. Good twists. Available now in the Etsy Shop.
