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.

Bending genres and crossing boundaries are:

Maurice Broaddus, Monte Cook, Richard Dansky, Graeme Davis, Julia Bond Ellingboe, Peter Freeman, Ed Greenwood, Kenneth Hite, Adam Marek, Johnny Nexus, Jeff Tidball, Monica Valentinelli, Kyla Ward, Chuck Wendig

Note: This digital edition includes the PDF, ePub and Mobi (Kindle) versions of the book.

This isn't just a collection of short stories, it is a thoughtful analysis of what it means to be a hero, what a hero actually is. All too often the term 'hero' is used inappropriately. A great sportsman is admirable to be sure, but he isn't a [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
