You have to admit, that’s really pretty! The publication date is October 10, but you can preorder it now.
I have a story in this anthology called Her Father’s Sword. And in it, for the first time, I wrote about Fitz as others might see him. I hasten to add that while Fitz plays a large role in the story, the tale is not really about him, but about a young woman in a village that has just been devastated by a Red Ship Raid. It takes place in the early days of Forging, before most people understood what that meant.
Even if you’ve never read any of my books, I think you can sample a bit of my world with this story.
Of course, there are other writers and stories in the anthology.
