Discovery (Challenge! #1)
RBE is about heroes, and heroes exist in every genre. They dominate our legends from the men and women of history to the denizens of our literary worlds. The stories we tell each other begin and end with heroes. The pages of a CHALLENGE! title are beyond genre; they’re simply heroic. The RBE CHALLENGE! is issued in part to engage respondents in a contest of skill and in another part to ensure the validity of RBE’s tagline: Putting the HERO back into HEROICS! To partake in this contest is to dare to accept an invitation not to decide superiority but to define heroes. CHALLENGE! titles are intended to perpetuate tales of heroes and raise financial support. These titles revolve around the cover art and the single-word title inspired by that art. Authors rising to the CHALLENGE! are encouraged to deliver the strongest heroic adventure the combination of art and title rouses within them. So what’s in this CHALLENGE!? The creations of the writers stimulated by this cover and the idea of DISCOVERY. How did they choose to deliver? Did they deliver? Go ahead, judge for yourself. Read these 11 tales of fantastical adventure and decide if they created heroes who rose to the CHALLENGE! of DISCOVERY. If you are a reader who loves strong heroes, this book is for you. Authors include: Richard Berrigan, Frederic S. Durbin, Gabe Dybing, John Kilian, Nicholas Ozment, Henry Ram, Daniel R. Robichaud, Keith J. Taylor, Frederick Tor, and David J. West. Cover art by V. Shane. Foreword and edited by Jason M Waltz.
