Have you ever wondered why fantasy favours the priviledged? From princesses to pirate captains, learned wizards to chivalrous knights? Even in modern and science fantasy we see men of power and influence – generals, superspies, corporate cronies and criminal masterminds.

Where are all the working class heroes?

This anthology has a simple premise: its protagonists must be the salt of the earth, the hardworking common folk who struggle against adversity and overcome the most challenging disadvantage of all: being of the wrong class.

Stories will be speculative fiction using fantasy, science fiction and horror as their genre. They will also include some social commentary, although overtly political perspectives will be rejected in favour of personal perspectives.
