Sword and Scandal new S&S anthology on kickstarter by J. Manfred Weichsel

J. Manfred Weichsel who specialize in writing sexy humorous stories has launched a kickstarter for a new NSFW Sword and sorcery anthology. If you want to help it happen the price start at 4$ and it has until june 4 to reach the 2500 goal. It’s going to feature 12-16 stories and the open call for submission will come once the goal is reached, you can follow him on twitter too if you’re interested.

Here’s the description :

The title Sword & Scandal is a play on the popular Italian sword and sandal genre of epic films. These will be stories with traditional historical and mythological settings from heroic fantasy, but with more gore, nudity, and sex than what you usually see published. They will be subversive without becoming grimdark and will retain the sense of fun you would want from a pulp adventure, and the sense of wonder you would want from a weird tale. 

If you have read my books, then you know that I am an experimental author who takes big risks with everything he does. Unlike other publishers who tend to play it safe with their selections, I will be looking for the wild, strange, and outrageous. I want to publish off-beat and off-the-wall stories that would never otherwise get to see the light of day.

Humor is also a big part of what I do. I will actively look for stories that incorporate a similar sense of humor as mine: dry, sardonic, and satirical. I enjoy humor that is character-driven, dark, and surreal. But I also like farce.

Sword & Scandal is not an anthology for genre purists. It is for thrill-seeking readers who want something new and different. The tales in this book will be adventures to scandalize. So, if you want to see such a new market open up to writers, and if you want to help bring such a book into existence, and if you want to hold such a book in your hands and read it, then contribute to Sword & Scandal now! 

Back it here!
