Coming in March

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.

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!

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.

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.

Very excited about this. This has made my morning. :) Looking forward to the story from Howard in particular, and the D&E of course, but the whole lineup is very exciting.

It looks fantastic. I am particularly surprised and delighted by the inclusion of Steven Saylor.

And, of course, equally delightful, if less surprising, will be a new Dunk and Egg :-)
