Epic: An anthology of epic fantasy

I read in Dark Wolf's Fantasy Reviews, that Tachyon Publications is publishing an epic fantasy anthology this November. Epic, as it will be called, will consist on 17 short stories by some of the most influential contemporary fantasy writers, compiled by John Joseph Adams.

Even the cover is epic.

These stories will be:

Foreword by Brent Weeks

"Homecoming" by Robin Hobb
"The Word of Unbinding" by Ursula K. Le Guin
"The Burning Man" by Tad Williams
"As the Wheel Turns" by Aliette de Bodard
"The Alchemist" by Paolo Bacigalupi
"Sandmagic" by Orson Scott Card
"The Road to Levinshir" by Patrick Rothfuss
"Rysn" by Brandon Sanderson
"While the Gods Laugh" by Michael Moorcock
"Mother of All Russiya" by Melanie Rawn
"Riding the Shore of the River of Death" by Kate Elliott
"The Bound Man" by Mary Robinette Kowal
"The Narcomancer" by N. K. Jemisin
"Strife Lingers in Memory" by Carrie Vaughn
"The Mad Apprentice" by Trudi Canavan
"Otherling" by Juliet Marillier
"The Mystery Knight" by George R. R. Martin

As you can see there are a lot of big names there. Of those stories I have only read "While the Gods Laugh", by Michael Moorcock, starring my favourite albino prince with a dark runeblade, Elric of Melniboné.

Epic is due this November and will be available both in paper and e-book format (MOBI, ePub, pdf).

Ant the to-read pile increases...
