Twenty-Seven Thrilling Tales from Amazing Fantasy Authors!

Whether they are unwitting, plucky, or just plain epic, heroes capture the imagination and rescue us from everyday life. With stories set in fantastic, magical realms, gritty urban landscapes, and fairytale kingdoms, our heroes stand fast as defenders of good. Struggling against evil governments, wicked demi-gods, wrathful nature, supernatural con-men, and their own insecurities, each must find the strength to triumph and the will to persevere.

In the second anthology from the Fellowship of Fantasy, twenty-three authors explore the theme of heroes, covering genres ranging from steampunk and fairytale to urban and Arthurian. These are the heroes you’ve been waiting for.

My Review

It’s hard to review an anthology because each story needs to be reviewed separately. Each of the stories has a different aspect of heroism and a different way of exploring the concept. The stories are well-written and original. Each story is a well chosen contribution to the anthology.

I enjoyed them, and my favourite was probably the first one I read, a reworking of the Greek myths of Daedalus, and of the Minator. The dancer is a fantastic, and unexpected hero.

The book is definitely a 4/5
