First #bookcast2019 post!

Do you like the fantasy shenanigans of TAZ Balance? What about the nods to the 4th wall and the intertwining of the real world and the fantasy? Silliness and fun, yet paired with emotional depth of characters?

Do I have the book for you! Well, series, really.

"Swords, Sorcery, and Stealth" by Drew Hayes, currently at four books, checks all these boxes and has a fantastic narrator to boot!

So totally RANDOM AND A THROWBACK I'm sorta OBSESSED with this little find, I have not seen this movie I tryed to watch it but my firestick was lagging, so I found this and for some reason I can't wait to read it and it's a old battered copy so it gives me all the bookish feels 😂 I want to see this flick !

SleepyDragon Didn't know there were books based on the tv series. Cool. 5mo
KathyWheeler I loved this series, and didn‘t know there were books based on it. 5mo
flying_monkeys I use “there can be only one!” so much throughout her life, my daughter rented the movie, finally. 🤩 I hope that fire stick gets its act together so you can bask in the awesomeness of this classic. (edited) 5mo

BookNAround We watched the original movie before our big meet in college every year because we were the Fighting Scots. “There can be only one!” (edited) 5mo
EyesOnly34 The series has some excellent episodes. It definitely suffers from 90s dated look, but the sword fights are unparalleled. The 1980s original movie is one you definitely need to watch! 5mo
MStew @EyesOnly34 i think I want to own this flim!!!!!! Putting This on top of my watch list 🤓 5mo
EyesOnly34 @meghan2714 I think so too haha 5mo
Curiouser_and_curiouser The movie was my absolute fave when I was a teen!!!! I think of every time I hear that Queen song. 2mo

This beautiful volume translating and demonstrating Sigmund Ringeck's work on longsword technique arrived today. I snagged it off Thriftbooks for only $28, a fraction of what it typically goes for on the used market as it has been out of print for some time now.

Mtroiano ThriftBooks is the best! 6mo

Just got an email letting me know this was available on Thriftbooks. This is an incredible find. This book is out of print and a popular resource in the HEMA community. The same hardcover book on Amazon is going for $700+. I'll take this copy for $28 thank you very much!

This is a really good study guide to keep on hand if you are learning German Longsword. It covers all of the basics and is good to go through as you practice each concept. This book will likely stay with me in my gear bag instead of just sitting on a shelf.
