Martin and award-winning editor Gardner Dozois is filled with subtle shades of gray. Twenty-one all-original stories, by an all-star list of contributors, will delight and astonish you in equal measure with their cunning twists and dazzling reversals. And George R.
Martin himself offers a brand-new A Game of Thrones tale chronicling one of the biggest rogues in the entire history of Ice and Fire. Follow along with the likes of Gillian Flynn, Joe Abercrombie, Neil Gaiman, Patrick Rothfuss, Scott Lynch, Cherie Priest, Garth Nix, and Connie Willis, as well as other masters of literary sleight-of-hand, in this rogues gallery of stories that will plunder your heart—and yet leave you all the richer for it.
Praise for Rogues "Not a single bad story in the bunch. Now, it's true, when I was in college I knew a girl who preferred Ashley Wilkes, so noble and self-sacrificing, to that cad Rhett Butler, gambler, blockade-runner ,,, but I think she's the only one. Every other woman I've ever met would take Rhett over Ashley in a hot minute, and let's not even talk about Frank Kennedy and Charles Wilkes.
Harrison Ford comes across rather roguishly in every part he plays, but of course it all started with Han Solo and Indiana Jones. Is there anyone who truly prefers Luke Skywalker to Han Solo? Sure, Han is only in it for the money, he makes that plain right from the start ,,, which makes it all the thrilling when he returns at the end of Star Wars to put that rocket up Darth Vader's butt.
And Indy ,,, Indy is the very definition of rogue.
Pulling out his gun to shoot that swordsman wasn't fair at all ,,, but my, didn't we love him for it? But it's not just television and film where rogues rule. Look at the books. Consider epic fantasy.
Now, fantasy often gets characterized as a genre in which absolute good battles absolute evil, and certainly that sort of thing is plentiful, especially in the hands of the legions of Tolkien imitators with their endless dark lords, evil minions, and square-jawed heroes. Conan of Cimmeria is sometimes characterized as a hero, but let us not forget, he was also a thief, a reaver, a pirate, a mercenary, and ultimately a usurper who installed himself on a stolen throne ,,, and slept with every attractive woman he met along the way.
Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser are even more roguish, albeit somewhat less successful. It is unlikely either one will end up a king. And then we have Jack Vance's thoroughly amoral and thoroughly delightful Cugel the Clever, whose scheming never quite seems to produce the desired results, but still ,,, Historical fiction has its share of dashing, devious, untrustworthy scalawags as well.
The Three Musketeers certainly had their roguish qualities. You cannot really buckle a swash without some. Rhett Butler was as big a rogue in the novel as he was in the film. Michael Chabon gave us two splendid new rogues in Amram and Zelikman, the stars of his historical novella Gentleman of the Road, and I for one hope we see a lot more of that pair. If you haven't read MacDonald's Flashman books you can skip the Hughes, unless you're into Victorian moralizing , you have yet to meet one of literature's great rogues.
I envy you the experience. Hell, the whole Wild West teemed with rogues. The outlaw hero is just as common as the outlaw villain, if not more so. Billy the Kid? Jesse James and his gang? Doc Holliday, rogue dentist extraordinaire?
And if we may glance back at television once again-pay cable this time, though-we also have HBO's fabulous and much-lamented Deadwood, and the dastard at the center of it, Al Swearengen. As played by Ian MacShane, Swearengen completely stole that show from its putative hero, the sheriff. But then, rogues are good at stealing. It's one of the things that they do best. What about the romance genre? The rogue almost always gets the girl in a romance.
These days the rogue IS the girl, oft as not, which can be even cooler.
It is always nice to see conventions standing on their head. Mystery fiction has entire subgenres about rogues. Private eyes have always had that aspect to them; if they were straight-up, by-the-book, just-the-facts-m'am sort of guys, they would be cops.
They're not. I could go on. Literary fiction, gothics, paranormal romance, chick lit, horror, cyberpunk, steampunk, urban fantasy, nurse novels, tragedy, comedy, erotica, thrillers, space opera, horse opera, sports stories, military fiction, ranch romances ,,, every genre and subgenre had its rogues, as often as not they're the characters most cherished and best remembered. All those genres are not represented in this anthology, alas ,,, but there is part of me that wishes that they were.
Maybe it's the rogue in me, the part of me that loves to color outside the line, but the truth is, I don't have much respect for genre barriers. These days I am best known as a fantasy writer, but Rogues is not meant to be a fantasy anthology ,,, though it does have some good fantasy in it. My co-editor, Gardner Dozois, edited a science-fiction magazine for a couple of decades, but Rogues is not a science-fiction anthology either ,,, though it does feature some SF stories as good as anything you'll find in the monthly magazines.
Like Warriors and Dangerous Women, our previous crossgenre anthologies, Rogues is meant to cut across all genre lines. Our theme is universal, and Gardner and I both love good stories of all sorts, no matter what time, place, or genre they are set in, so we went out and invited well-known authors from the worlds of mystery, epic fantasy, sword and sorcery, urban fantasy, science fiction, romance, mainstream, mystery cozy or hard-boiled , thriller, historical, romance, Western, noir, horror ,,, you name it.
Not all of them accepted, but many did, and the results are on the pages that follow. Our contributors make up an all-star lineup of award-winning and bestselling writers, representing a dozen different publishers and as many genres.
We asked each of them for the same thing-a story about a rogue, full of deft twists, cunning plans, and reversals. No genre limits were imposed upon on any of our writers. Some chose to write in the genre they're best known for. Some decided to try something different.
In my introduction to Warriors, the first of our crossgenre anthologies, I talked about growing up in Bayonne, New Jersey, in the s, a city without a single bookstore. I bought all my reading material at newsstands and the corner "candy shops," from wire spinner racks.
The paperbacks on those spinner racks were not segregated by genre. Martin and Gardner Dozois. Short stories, American.
