Hugo-nominated editor Bryan Thomas Schmidt will discuss his newest anthology, "Shattered Shields!" Swords and Shields. Faith and Magic. High fantasy and mighty conflicts go hand-in-hand. In great wars, armies rise to fight evil hordes and heroes struggle to push beyond their imperfections to save the
day. The possibilities are endless, but at the heart the stories in "Shattered Shields" have this in common: soldiers—ordinary and otherwise–struggling against extraordinary odds to survive the day.
