New epic fantasy in the grand tradition - including a never-before-published Song of Ice and Fire story by George R. R. Martin!
Fantasy fiction has produced some of the most unforgettable heroes ever conjured onto the page: Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian, Michael Moorcock's Elric of Melniboné, Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. Classic characters like these made sword and sorcery a storytelling sensation, a cornerstone of fantasy fiction - and an inspiration for a new generation of writers spinning their own outsize tales of magic and swashbuckling adventure.

Join today's finest tellers of fantastic tales, including George R. R. Martin, K. J. Parker, Robin Hobb, Scott Lynch, Ken Liu, C. J. Cherryh, Daniel Abraham, Lavie Tidhar, Ellen Kushner, and more on action-packed journeys into the outer realms of dark enchantment and intrepid derring-do, featuring a stunning assortment of fearless swordsmen and warrior women who face down danger and death at every turn with courage, cunning, and cold steel.

Great selection of stories

A very nice collection! I choose it mostly because of Robin Hobb and GRR Martin and I enjoyed both their stories (Hobb's was amazing and heartbreaking, Martin's very interesting and informative) but it was also great for me because I discovered new authors which I really liked! Obviously not all the stories where for me, but it was a very nice selection! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for new ideas! Also the narrators were excellent!
