Sword-and-Sorcery (re)defined

As a long time fan of Sword-and-Sorcery fiction, I'm quite pleased and happy to be reading Howard Andrew Jones (editor for Black Gate magazine, aka bg_editor) sharing his insights into this oft overlooked and pooh-poohed (now, anyway) branch of fantasy fiction... Currently the first two parts of his redefining are available at his blog:

Honing the New Edge Part 1

Honing the New Edge Part 2

A third is on the way.

As someone who reads the stuff, has written the stuff (even published a couple of short pieces), and hopes to read (and hopefully write) more quality S&S, I find Jones' observations invigorating...
