Item description for The Guin Saga: Book Three: Battle of Nospherus by Kaoru Kurimoto, Alexander O. Smith & Elye J. Alexander...

The Guin Saga is epic heroic fantasy in the smae vein as Robert E. Howard's Conan, the Barbarian. More than a hundred books strong and growing, the saga has sold more than twenty-five million copies in Japan. Vertical will publish the first five installments that comprise "The Marches Episode" arc. Each paperback edition will feature artwork taken from the original Japanese editions. (see art above).

Guin is a mighty warrior, who cannot remember his past. His only clue is a leopard mask mystically attached to his head. Joined by the royal twins of Parros, Remus and Rinda; Suni, the simian-girl; and Istavan, the mercernary; our hero must cross the treacherous River Kes and journey into the badlands of Nospherus, where unthinkable dangers lurk. In hot pursuit is a Mongauli army of 15,000, led by the beautiful and dangerous General Amnelis.
“A rousing tale of intrepid heroes, horrid villains and wicked supernatural creatures.” –Publishers Weekly

The Guin Saga was the most [inspiration for Berserk]. I started reading it in junior high and I'm still reading the new volume every month.” –Berserk creator Kentaro Miura

“Kaoru Kurimoto manages the flurry of situations being set up and resolved like the trick of a putting a hand on a table with fingers spread out, then stabbing a blade between the outstretched digits. The speed and coordination is that amazing.” –Scott Green, Ain't It Cool News

“A swashbuckling fantasy . . . action is always center stage . . . dreamlike . . . intense.” –The Seattle Times

“This is classic fantasy at its best.” –Book Sense (Fall 2003 Science Fiction and Fantasy Top Ten)

“Readers should be warned that once you start this journey, it will be nearly impossible to leave it unfinished.” – SFRevu

“Japan's answer to The Lord of the Rings.” –The Globe and Mail

“This has to be one of the best translations I've yet read. The language is fluid and establishes a strong narrative voice.” –James Michael White,

“I get a little breathless just typing all that, and it's nothing compared to the experience of reading the Guin books. They're [The books] like Robert E. Howard crossed with manga and a triple espresso.” –Fantasy and Science Fiction

“Guin is epic fantasy as I have come not to know it lately: restless, unapologetic, world-spanning, monster-smashing meat-and-potatoes fun.” –Advanced Media Network
Author Kaoru Kurimoto, winner of the Edogawa Rampo and Yoshikawa Eiji Awards, lives in Tokyo Japan.
