Book Review: Heroes Wanted: A Fantasy Anthology, edited by Ben Galley
“What do you think a hero is? It’s just the right person in the right place making the right choice at the right time. Heroes aren’t born, young man: they’re made.”
Like most anthologies, variable quality, but a few stories stand out. Most notably the first and last stories: “Half Breed” by Joe Jackson, “Is Dumb” by M. D. Presley, and “Ratman” by Laura M Hughes. The best turn many of the hero clichés upside down.
“And don’t forget that we’re heroes now. The pretty lady said so, and she was looking at me when she said that.”
