New Anthology: Epic

I’m editing a new reprint anthology of epic fantasy short fiction for Tachyon Publications. (If “epic fantasy” is unclear to you, I’m using it synonymously with “high fantasy.”) It will be called Epic and will be released sometime this fall. As I’ve done with most of my other anthologies, I’d like to solicit recommendations, so if you have any outstanding examples of epic fantasy fiction you’d like to point out to me, please feel free to let me know about them by entering them into my Epic Fantasy Database (

I’m primarily interested in short fiction, but if you want to recommend novels or novel series, that is welcome too, as I may include a “for further reading” list in the anthology.

If you are a writer and would like to recommend your own story, that’s fine too, and if so, you should feel free to also email me a copy in RTF or Doc format to jjadams.anthology [at] gmail [dot] com.

Note: I’m also soliciting recommendations for a parallel worlds/portal fantasy anthology.
