Coming in March

Spain
WARRIORS, the huge new all-original crossgenre anthology I edited with Gardner Dozois, will be published by Tor in hardcover next March.

We've got an all-star lineup of bestsellers and award winners from half a dozen different genres for this one. And here's a first look at the cover:



The table of contents looks like this:

Stories from the Spinner Rack," by George R.R. Martin
"The King of Norway," by Cecilia Holland
"Forever Bound," by Joe Haldeman
"The Triumph," by Robin Hobb
"Clean Slate," by Lawrence Block
"And Ministers of Grace," by Tad Williams
"Soldierin'," by Joe Lansdale
"Dirae," by Peter S. Beagle
"The Eagle and the Rabbit," by Steven Saylor
"Seven Years from Home," by Naomi Novik
"The Custom of the Army," by Diana Gabaldon
"The Pit," by James Rollins
"Out of the Dark," by David Weber
"The Girls from Avenger," by Carrie Vaughn
"Ancient Ways," by S.M. Stirling
"Ninieslando" by Howard Waldrop
"Recidivist" by Gardner Dozois
"My Name is Legion," by David Morrell
"Defenders of the Frontier," by Robert Silverberg
"The Scroll," by David Ball
"The Mystery Knight," by George R.R. Martin

And yes, that last one is the new Dunk & Egg novella, the longest one to date.

Several of the other writers also contributed tales from their on-going series: a Lord John story by Diana Gabaldon, an Emberverse yarn from Steve Stirling, a Soljerboy tale from Joe Haldeman. But we also have vikings, doughboys, legionaires and legionaries, fly girls, buffalo soldiers, and a dozen other different sorts of warriors.

Gardner and I are very high on this one. Hope you will be too.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know if the Steven Saylor story part of the Sub Rosa Roma series, or something new? He's one of my fave writers.

Saylor
Depends on how you define the series. The Saylor is a Roman story, but not a Gordianus story.

If this is even half as good as Silverberg's Legends anthologies, it's going to rock. Then again, it's got a Peter S. Beagle story in it, so of course it will.

Oh - and I just finished reading Hunter's Run (found, sadly, on the remainders table, not far from Making Money) - good stuff, and I wonder if this collaboration might not have come from the working together on that?

George, is that a Forever War/Free story?

Ditto this question. I didn't know what you meant by a "soljerboy" story, unless you just meant a military story in general. But I hope putting the word "forever" in the title isn't just toying with us!

Oh man, March? That at least gives me some time to read through my pile of "to be read" books before this one, because holy crap, I want this one.

And man, I've been wanting more Dunk & Egg. I actually really like the Dunk & Egg stories more than I like what I've read of the main SoIaF books. I'm probably alone in that, but The Hedge Knight comic was my first time reading anything you had written and it really changed my perception of what fantasy could be like.

already looks good
more dunk and egg is the real hook, though.

Thanks for the heads up! I was just flirting with the idea of getting a good anthology and here one lands . . . right in my eager little lap.

A windfall indeed . . .

Looking forward to it!
I already have one pre-ordered from Amazon.

Winter Is Coming, but that just means that we are coming closer to a new Dunk & Egg story!! :)

I read the Hedge Knight in fact... yup, I actually brought it with me to college. But I brought a copy of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure too, so there you go. :(

Anyway, I might pick this up, but only if it's full of AWESOME.

Kylaer, you jerk.

What a lineup!

Can't wait to get our hands on it. Terrific lineup. I'm guessing Silverberg's story, by the name and the reference to legionaries, is part of his "Roma Eterna" alternate history short stories; I absolutely love those. Wonder which frontier it'll prove to be? Hrm...

And yeah, "The Mystery Knight" of course.

No, the Silverberg is a standalone.

Haha! I love your icon! It annoys me that so many people are so
rude about when the next book will be out. It'll be out when it's
out! *hides the poor little vulnerable remaining Starks*

all-original crossgenre anthology

The cross-genre aspect looks especially appealing to me; the fact that you've got at least 8 of my favourite authors in various genres and a new Dunk & Egg, and it's co-edited by Gardner (my favourite editor)....well, pre-order from Amazon.ca, here I come!

I'm really excited about this. I love your short fiction, not to mention all the other great names involved. Fantastic!

HEDGE KNIGHT II: SWORN SWORD (NOVELLA)
Hey George, i was wondering if its possible to get Hedge Knight 2 in Novella form, I have the first one in Dreamsongs Vol.2, and I have the Graphic Novel version of both, but I'd like the written Novella version if it's available and I cant seem to find it anywhere on Amazon, any help?

Stoked for Dunk & Egg 3, that's awesome! I was hoping they'd be at the wall, but from the title 'Mystery Knight' something tells me they aren't. Maybe I'm wrong? either way I'm sure it will be a great read.

Re: HEDGE KNIGHT II: SWORN SWORD (NOVELLA)
Hi,

It took me a bit of looking at Amazon too, but I found The Sworn Sword at Amazon under:

"Legends II: Dragon, Sword, and King (Mass Market Paperback)"

Diana Gabaldon blogged about this a little while ago and, hoooo boy, I just cannot express how excited I am about an anthology the two of you both have stories in!

I'm in. Anything with George RR Martin is a must read, but add Robin Hobb to the mix and that's a sure thing. This is why I love anthologies. I always find authors I like who I never would have gotten a chance to read another way. I'm sure there will be a few in this one as well.

"recidivist" is a word i compulsively overuse. mostly in resumés.

The line up is really great!

Is the Naomi Novik story Tremeraire based?
