Flashing Swords! #3: Warriors and Wizards is an anthology of fantasy stories, edited by Lin Carter. It was first published in hardcover by Nelson Doubleday in 1976 as a selection in its Science Fiction Book Club, and in paperback by Dell Books in August 1976. The first German edition was issued by Pabel in November 1978.[1]

The book collects five heroic fantasy novelettes by members of the Swordsmen and Sorcerers' Guild of America (SAGA), a somewhat informal literary group of fantasy authors active from the 1960s to the 1980s, of which Carter was also a member and guiding force, together with a general introduction and introductions to the individual stories by the editor.



The anthology was nominated for the 1977 World Fantasy Award for Best Anthology/Collection.[1]
