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.

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.

Silverberg
No, the Silverberg is a standalone.

Re: Silverberg
Alas! Got my hopes up. It'll be worth reading, though, whatever it is.

I see that it's the Saylor story that features Romans. Never read him before, so this'll give me a good opportunity. I'm on a bit of a Roman kick right now, thanks to recently watching [i]I, Claudius[/i] through* for the first time.


* Actually, I've haven'te watched the final episode, because the series is just so good I can't quite bring myself to see the end of it.
