“Blackguards” Anthology – I’m a Stretch Goal

The Kickstarter page is now live for Ragnarok Publications’ new anthology Blackguards: Tales of Assassins, Mercenaries and Rogues, check it out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1089607742/blackguards-tales-of-assassins-mercenaries-and-rog

The funding goal for publication is $14,500. However, if the final total pledged exceeds $17,000 the anthology will include my novella The Lord Collector. This is an all-new, previously unpublished fifteen thousand word story set in the Raven’s Shadow universe, featuring a guest appearance by a pale eyed, raspy voiced Master from the Sixth Order of our prior acquaintance.

Other stretch goals include commissioning interior artwork, another story from an as yet unnamed author, and opening the anthology up to submissions, so any aspiring writers might want to drop by and make a pledge.

The current, and impressive, table of contents reads thusly and I think most fantasy readers would agree it’s well worth $10 of anyone’s money:

  • Carol Berg, “Seeds”
  • Richard Lee Byers, “Troll Trouble”
  • David Dalglish, “Take You Home”
  • James Enge, “Thieves at the Gate”
  • John Gwynne, “Better to Live than to Die”
  • Lian Hearn, “His Kikuta Hands”
  • Snorri Kristjansson, “A Kingdom and a Horse”
  • Joseph Lallo, “Seeking the Shadow”
  • Mark Lawrence, “The Secret”
  • Tim Marquitz, “A Taste of Agony”
  • Peter Orullian, “A Length of Cherrywood”
  • Cat Rambo, “The Subtler Art”
  • Laura Resnick, “Friendship”
  • Mark Smylie, “Manhunt”
  • Kenny Soward, “Jancy’s Justice”
  • Shawn Speakman, “The White Rose Thief”
  • Jon Sprunk, “Sun and Steel”
  • Anton Strout, “Scream”
  • Michael J Sullivan, “Professional Integrity”
  • Django Wexler, “First Kill”

    Are we eligible to donate if we are outside the US?

  • Anthony Ryan

    Yes indeed. Though if you’re going for the paperback or hardcover edition you need to add $25 for overseas shipping. You’ll also need an Amazon payment account.

  • Beverly Collie

    With all of the excellent authors, I am not surprised Blackguards is getting so many donations. Having just read Blood Song and Tower Lord twice in succession, I am thrilled that you are doing a special story for the anthology.
