Novel adapted from the original screenplay by Albert Pyun, Tom Karnowski, and John Stuckmeyer. Cromwell of Aragon awakens an ancient sorcerer to use to usurp a throne and then betrays the sorcerer. Many years later, the surviving son of the usurped crown returns with his band of mercenaries to reclaim the throne. Unbeknownst to him, the sorcerer has disguised himself to seek revenge. The movie came out around the same time as the first Conan film, and in many ways I felt this was actually the better movie.

I preferred this novelization to the ultra-cheesy (but enjoyable) 1982 fantasy film from director Albert Pyun. The book provides history (and many unseen scenes) for the characters and the kingdom in question, which makes me wonder how much of the screenplay was not used in the film. It's fun, ribald, and pretty interesting. The author, Norman Winski, shows enthusiasm and interest in his work here.

It really added some details to the movie (which I own too). Is it cheesy? of course! And I love it for what it is, a very good cheesy sword and sorcery story.

I received this book so fast and it was in better shape than I thought it was
I highly recommend this seller A+++++

As stated by a previous reviewer, the sexual themes of this book seem to bounce off of every page. Perhaps the author should have taken heed of the old axiom "Less is better." when deciding the amount of sexual innuendo to put into this work.

Nevertheless, once you get past all that, the book has its good points and bad. There is enough good to make it an enjoyable read, but mostly for fans of the movie. This is not a book that most fans of the fantasy genre would enjoy, especially since it was the only book written by this author with these characters. This book would have been better if there had been follow-up books afterwards, to fill-out the characters as well as the world around them. What makes that situation worse is that there is something of a cliffhanger at the end of the book and a mention of a sequel at the end of the movie. After reading the book and seeing the movie, I was left with a decidedly unfulfilled sense of anticipation. I was promised more, but it was never delivered.

Talon is the perfect hero. Strong, noble and brave. He comes across as being a little too perfect sometimes. Inserting a few character flaws might have been a good idea. But, Talon is likeable enough that you wouldnt mind hanging-out with the guy. Still, the book seemed to gush about how great he is and that got a little irritating.

If you know anything about history, this book can be downright annoying. You never quite understand when the whole story actually takes place. For example, when the story speaks about Christianity being "new" (page 96), this would be around the time of the Roman Empire. But, of course, the rest of the book indicates a much later timeframe, such as the use of castles, which did not exist in Roman times. Plus, a sword, with three blades, which can actually shoot two of the blades with the use of springs stretches the imagination a bit far.

Overall, not a bad book, if you've seen the movie. Otherwise, fantasy fans might flip through the pages before deciding to put it back on the shelf and find something else to read.

I must let it be known that I've never actually seen the motion picture that this was written from. With that recognized, I am reviewing this as a pure fantasy novel on its own merit.

As a writer, Norman Winski is quite capable, and the tale flows freely without any bumps or grinds from a readers perspective. The book as a whole reminded me of the old-school pulp fantasy classics similar to Moorcock or Howard. I'm not saying he's as talented as those masters, but the style and story are in the same vein, and if you take the script at face value, you should find it quite good. The hero is likable, the primary villain is despicable, and there are several interesting twists, wizardry, and action scenes to keep you reading on. It's an easy page-turner, and you'll be finished in a single afternoon if you wish.

I did have one complaint. At times, it was a little too overtly sexual. Not that there were too many sexual scenes, per se, but the characters themselves seem to be in a constant state of sexual arousal. Phrases such as "the massive bulge beneath his leggings", etc. are used far too often for no apparent reason. Many of these types of descriptions could have been left out.

Overall, it was an entertaining read. Not something I'd consider an all-time great, but well worth the time and (little) money I spent.

There's not much to recommend this as a piece of literature but fans of the movie -- and yes, they do exist -- may enjoy noting how the book, (based on the original screenplay), differs at times from the product on the screen. Take the two torture scenes, for instance. In the movie Simon MacCorkindale is shown chained up in a dungeon wearing a loincloth. His back has been bloodied by lashes from a whip and he's burned with a hot iron. In the book, however, he's stretched on a rack and he's apparently naked because his balls are said to be beaten with a wet towel. Ouch!

As for Lee Horsley, in the movie he's crucified to an upright, X-shaped cross. (Though in some TV prints his hands aren't nailed to the wood but instead are shown fastened with metal cuffs.) In the book, however, the Horsley character lies face up on a tabletop, nailed at the hands and feet, while diners at the table dribble food and drink on him.

Devotees of the film may enjoy finding other differencse as well.

Arryar
Novelization of the fantasy movie, which is pretty much a B movie, but entertaining enough with your Robert E. Howard style of vile wizard present.

Based on the movie's original, uncut screenplay. Without giving too much away, The Sword and the Sorcerer delves deeper into each character's history, and helps to fill in many of the plot holes from the 1982 motion picture. Reading this novel after watching the movie will give you a much clearer sense of this little-known cult classic.
If you're a fan of the movie, or if you're buying the DVD, I highly recommend picking up this book.
