The ROGUES Are Coming

Gardner Dozois and I have just delivered the completed manuscript (well, e-manuscript, it being 2013 and all) for our latest big cross-genre anthologies, ROGUES, to our editor at Bantam Spectra.

Once again, we've got a really kickass lineup of contributors, and some terrific stories.

The table of contents:

George R.R. Martin “Everybody Loves a Rogue” (Introduction)
Joe Abercrombie “Tough Times All Over”
Gillian Flynn “What Do You Do?”
Matthew Hughes “The Inn of the Seven Blessings”
Joe R. Lansdale “Bent Twig”
Michael Swanwick “Tawny Petticoats”
David Ball “Provenance”
Carrie Vaughn “The Roaring Twenties”
Scott Lynch “A Year and a Day in Old Theradane”
Bradley Denton “Bad Brass”
Cherie Priest “Heavy Metal”
Daniel Abraham “The Meaning of Love”
Paul Cornell “A Better Way to Die”
Steven Saylor “Ill Seen in Tyre”
Garth Nix “A Cargo of Ivories”
Walter Jon Williams “Diamonds From Tequila”
Phyllis Eisenstein “The Caravan to Nowhere”
Lisa Tuttle “The Curious Affair of the Dead Wives”
Neil Gaiman “How the Marquis Got His Coat Back”
Connie Willis “Now Showing”
Patrick Rothfuss “The Lightning Tree”

This one was an enormous amount of fun. We're got something for everyone in ROGUES -- SF, mystery, historical fiction, epic fantasy, sword and sorcery, comedy, tragedy, crime stories, mainstream. And rogues, cads, scalawags, con men, thieves, and scoundrels of all descriptions. If you love Harry Flashman and Cugel the Clever, as I do, this is the book for you.

If there's any bloody justice, some of these stories will contend for awards.

(And it's one more monkey off my back, hurrah, hurrah)

Are there others like this already published involving you? If so I may have to get my wallet out!

Yes, Gardner and I have done a number of anthologies together.

Already published are WARRIORS, SONGS OF LOVE AND DEATH, DOWN THESE STRANGE STREETS, and SONGS OF THE DYING EARTH. The last is a tribute anthology to Jack Vance.

Delivered and forthcoming are DANGEROUS WOMEN from Tor and OLD MARS from Bantam. And now ROGUES.

We are still at work on OLD VENUS.

The rumors of an OLD URANUS are unfounded.

Speaking of anthologies and novellas, was wondering if you could provide a Dunk and Egg update? Either on story 4 (She Wolves of Winterfell? That's the title I saw on the net) or info on the anthology of just them.

Enjoy the rest, however brief from delivering some material. You work hard so I daresay you earned it.

Thank you very much for this list, I now have a great summer of reading ahead!
