Description

Amra was a labor of love by George Scithers, who also published Roy Krenkel’s Cities and Scenes of the Ancient World. Amra was devoted to short stories, poetry, essays, all centered around sword and sorcery, and more specifically on the works of Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith and H.,P. Lovecraft. Each issue was packed with art, much of it by Roy Krenkel, including nearly every cover, but a few others pitched in too, like Frazetta (#66), George Barr, Jeff Jones, Jim Cawthorne, Alicia Austin, etc. Slightly read but still all fine or near fine. Includes at least eight loose flyers advertising Owlswick Press products and other books, one in full color, all from the same period.

Many pros were involved with this too, such as L. Sprague de Camp, Poul Anderson, Darrell Schwietzer, REH’s agent, Glenn Lord, etc. Essentially this was a nearly professional fanzine. Issues ran from 20 to a massive 40 pages (for the 25th anniversary issue, #75) and you can see the schedule was erratic. Yet this was the meeting place for fans of sword and sorcery…as a fan myself, I loved seeing each new issue come in the mail, with all the cool features. Krenkel clearly loved this, since he generally had a half dozen or more drawings in each and every issue.

Note: This is an out of print, used and/or rare book. It is not as-new, in “mint” condition. Near fine to very fine.
