Stone Skin Press The New Hero Volume 2

Every generation fits the time-honored constants of the hero tale to its own needs. Today’s serial adventurers, whether they burst from re-envisioned histories or ply the humming foredecks of an imagined future, ride a cresting cultural wave. Through thirteen thrilling stories of threatened identity and vanquished disorder, The New Hero 2’s diverse cast of top writers slices, dices and recombines the limits of the form.

Plunge into danger alongside their unforgettable problem-smashers, from a feminist painter-mercenary to a spacefaring badass, from steampunk cowgirls to a mutant paladin of the semiotic apocalypse. Hunt monsters churned up in the wake of the crusades. Plumb occult secrets on Chicago’s meanest streets. Crack wise with hardboiled sword-slingers. Succor lost souls on the soft shores of Limbo.

Grab camera, medkit or mystic tome and rush to your rendezvous with the heroes of tomorrow.

Stone Skin Press The New Hero Volume 1

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 self-hood is tested, obstacles shattered, and disorder vanquished.
