Featuring thirteen fantasy stories by popular and critically acclaimed writers, this anthology offers a fascinating and unique roster of authors whose gripping tales run the gamut of fantasy themes and settings. Each original tale showcases heroic action and rich mythology penned by a varied collection of contributors, including master Tanith Lee, cult favorites Howard Andrew Jones and Joseph A. McCullough, and rising stars Sean T. M. Stiennon and Robert J. Santa—writers who bring together magic, swordplay, and eclectic characters in stories that transport readers to alternate worlds, distant pasts, and fantastic settings. Two essays on the craft and business of fiction writing round out the collection, making this anthology both a model of the genre and a source of inspiration for aspiring fantasy writers.
