After a long, hot summer of very dry research and writing in order to earn a second doctorate (ahem!), Dr. Amy Marsh is launching her fall season with a reading from The Eye of Argon, by the late Jim Theis, a hilarious piece of early sword and sorcery fan fiction choc full of sex and gore. 

So let's savor some of the most preposterous purple prose you're likely to encounter in a primoridal eon. Celebrate the Stygian depths of barbarian lust as imagined by a sixteen year old boy, once upon a time. 

A "scholar's edition" with additional essays by Darrell Schweitzer and Lee Weinstein is available here.
