Illustration By Ken Laager

Dust jacket and interior illustrations by Ken Laager

Featuring some of the hottest names in fiction—including New York Times bestsellers Gillian Flynn, Neil Gaiman, and Patrick Rothfuss (with a novella set in the world of The Name of the Wind), PLUS a new Song of Ice and Fire novelette by George R. R. Martin.

Everybody loves a rogue…though sometimes we live to regret it. In this anthology each of the contributors was asked for a story about a rogue, full of deft twists, cunning plans, and reversals. No genre limits were imposed, and while some authors chose to write in the genre they’re best known for, some decided to try something different. So enjoy the read…but do be careful. Some of the ladies and gentleman in these pages are not to be trusted.

All authors have agreed to sign the limited and lettered editions.

Limited: 500 signed numbered copies, housed in a custom illustrated slipcase
Lettered: 26 specially bound copies, housed in a custom illustrated traycase

About the Production:

Rogues promises to be the most gorgeous oversized anthology we’ve ever produced. Ken Laager is slated to produce an original header illustration for each tale, and fully illustrate two stories: “The Lightning Tree,” a novella centering on Bast—and featuring Kvothe—from The Name of the Wind, will sport a full color plate and four full-page interior black-and-white illustrations. George R. R. Martin’s contribution, set in the world of A Song of Ice and Fire, will be illuminated by eight black-and-white illustrations as well as a full-color plate. The dust jacket’s focus will be squarely on Joe Abercrombie’s “Tough Times All Over”, which contains more rogues per page than any other tale, and an ultra-clever narrative.
