Many thanks to Ian Whates for inviting me to contribute a story to the upcoming anthology Legends II – Stories in Honour of David Gemmell – which is published in support of the David Gemmell Awards. As long time readers will know I’m a huge fan of David Gemmell’s work (see my post from two years ago here), so it was a big thrill to be included amongst such an impressive list of authors keen to honour a master of the genre.
Determined warriors, hideous creatures, wicked sorceries, tricksy villains and cunning lovers abound as fantasy’s finest imaginations do their best and their worst…
In November 2013, NewCon Press released Legends: Stories in Honour of David Gemmell. We are now delighted to unveil a second volume of original stories from some of the world’s leading fantasy authors written in honour of one of the genre’s greats. As before, Legends II will act in part as a fundraiser for the David Gemmell Awards.
