“I shouldn’t have started this book at 2230. I should
have known better. I do know better. All three of these

I look forward to another

More About Rob

Rob Howell is the publisher of New Mythology Press , including his work as editor of the Libri Valoris anthologies of heroic fantasy. Here he is with his favorite mug (Photo by Kate Gill).

He’s the creator of the Firehall Sagas and an author in the Four Horsemen Universe . He writes epic fantasy, space opera, military science fiction, alternate history, redneck horror, and whatever else seems fun.

He is a reformed medieval academic, a former IT professional, and a retired soda jerk.

His parents discovered books were the only way to keep Rob quiet. He latched onto the Hardy Boys series first and then anything he could reach. Without books, it’s unlikely all three would have survived.
He loves Old English poetry. Here's Rob performing a portion of Beowulf in Old English in a firehall at Pennsic (Photo by Kate Gill). That love is what got him interested in writing riddles for his Patreon.

The Firehall Sagas are tales from a world filled with wars and intrigue, shining steel and powerful spells, heroes and villains. Murder mysteries solved by Edward Aethelredson and great quests led by Irina Ivanovna are just two of the stories recounted here.
