Older than the written word and more popular than ever today, the hero story crosses cultures as an eternal constant.
The New Hero gathers an unexpected team of writers, celebrated and emerging, to deliver fourteen thrilling and distinctive variations on this classic theme. Their new heroes span the spectrum from post-apocalyptic seer to post-traumatic arm-twister, from outcast vampire to steam-age avenger, from two-fisted aviator to rabbi pirate.
Join us as selfhood is tested, obstacles shattered, and disorder vanquished.
