A good resource is Wadagu on Ning or on Facebook. There is also Griots: A Sword and Soul Anthology. Read about sword and soul in publishing. African Science Fiction has a good description of sword and soul too.
This is a timely discovery for me, because the recent discussion of "Always Chaotic Evil" races in fantasy eventually inspired my poem "A Hole in the Blanket," about a warrior woman whose younger brother is captured by Caucasian-featured demons. So that's a sword and soul piece. I think The Steamsmith series is kind of more ... soulpunk, if you will. I really enjoy exploring cultural motifs from around the world. Anybody can be a hero; anybody can be a villain. And when you pick things that haven't been done often before, you get fresher stories.
