About the Author :

Editor/author J.M.

He was also an ENnie-award-winning managing editor for Privateer Press (2001-2005).

He's also co-writer of the supernaturally weird Western series, Dead West. In 2013, he created Ragnarok Publications along with Tim Marquitz.

Review :

2015 Reddit Stabby Award Winner for BEST ANTHOLOGY / COLLECTION / PERIODICAL
Listed among the "Best Epic Fantasy of 2015" by The Book Plank."Herein there is a wealth of Epic Fantasy no one had dared to dream of. There is a wide diversity in the stories that feature in the anthology that only shows that this genre is far from dead..."--Jasper de Joode, The Book Plank
"If you enjoy grimdark, if you enjoy stories of villains and antiheroes surviving by their wits and their subtlety, these stories will not only provide you with hours of enjoyment, but will add to your to-be-read pile."--Richard Bray, Fantasy Faction
