A new fantasy anthology is now available from Solaris (£7.99). Fearsome Journeys, edited by Jonathan Strahan, is set to be part of a new series of anthologies from the publisher. And any new anthology is to be gratefully received. I haven’t yet read this book, but personally speaking, I welcome the chance to prove that fantasy is equally at home in the short story format – in the tradition of Jack Vance, CL Moore, Fritz Leiber, and Robert E Howard.
“From dragons to quests, from battles to magic:
An array of some of the most popular and exciting names in epic fantasy are set to appear in the first in a brand new series of anthologies from the master anthologist Jonathan Strahan ... featuring original fiction from authors including Trudi Canavan, Daniel Abraham, Saladin Ahmed, Elizabeth Bear, Glen Cook, and Scott Lynch – and many more.”
