Charles Saunders is the creator of the first Black Sword and Sorcery hero Imaro and founder of the sub-genre of Sword and Soul. In Nyumbani Tales, Charles has gathered previously published stories that expand the world of Nyumbani beyond the exciting exploits of his hero, filling in the details of this unique world with the triumphs, failures, loves and losses of the people that inhabit its amazing borders. This is vintage Sword and Sorcery and a must read for all fans of the genre.
"A Charles Saunders tale is a griot’s song, an alchemy of history and magic, both brutal and unflinching. And a reminder that all who write sword and soul work in his long shadow."
-Maurice Broaddus, author of The Knights of Brenton Court series
"With his visionary take on African-themed sword and sorcery, Charles Saunders was decades ahead of his time. He's a true original. The rest of us are still trying to catch up with him."
-David Anthony Durham, author of the Acacia Trilogy
