The Return of Brak
Well, they might not be the best stories in the sword-&-sorcery canon, but John Jakes' Brak the Barbarian saga is back as ebooks. Jason Waltz, of (unfortunately defunct) Rogue Blades Entertainment somehow found this video.
Jakes gives a thumbnail description of how Brak came about, and also mentions that the final Brak tale is outlined and in his office safe.
It took a little link hunting from the video, but I found the two e'collections links on the third page of thumbnails.
Brak the Barbarian/Mark of the Demons
Witch of the Four Winds/When the Idols Walked
Follow the "buy the ebook" links. $3.99 each. Not bad at all.
Seems that Witch of the Four Winds is Brak vs. The Sorceress renamed.
Both descriptions mention the collections include additional stories. I don't know which ones and if they cover The Fortunes of Brak or not. And I don't know whether these complete all the published Brak tales or not.
Also, there is a link to a free Brak estory,
"The Girl in the Gem"
All good stuff. I'll be taking a look at other authors and ebooks from Open Road Media.
