George Scithers published AMRA, a leading sword and sorcery fanzine, beginning in 1959. The term "swords and sorcery" first appeared there, and AMRA became a leading proponent of the subgenre. Several of the articles originally published in AMRA were later re-printed as part of two volumes about Conan the Barbarian, which Scithers co-edited with L. Sprague de Camp. Contributors to the magazine included all the leading fantasists of the day—Poul Anderson, L. Sprague de Camp, Fritz Leiber, and many more. This issue includes work by: L. Sprague de Camp, John Boardman, Glenn Lord, Poul Anderson, Fritz Leiber, and more.
