Every Old Hero Is New Again

Robin Laws has just posted the full cover for The New Hero vol.2 anthology, due from Stoneskin Press in February 2013. It’s a gorgeous piece by Gene Ha, featuring every protagonist from every story in the book, in the style of a classic Japanese woodcut.

I have a story in TNH2, and my character can be seen standing on the bridge on the left-hand side. He’s the tall fellow in medieval clothes, with a pudding-bowl haircut. I can’t tell you his name because he doesn’t have one, but I can tell you that the silver dots on his leather cloak are pilgrim’s badges. If you remember that I’ve written about a fantasy hero with no name and a religious angle before, please be reassured that this guy is very, very different. I think you’ll like him.
