Forgotten Sidekicks

I just read an amazing collection of short stories, so I want to tell you about it. It’s named Forgotten Sidekicks and was organized by fantasy author John Houhilan. It’s a book which includes works Published by Kristell Ink, the sci-fi and fantasy arm of Grimbold Books, and edited by Peter Sutton and Steven Poore.  The book includes great text and editing from Courtney M Privett, Desmond Warzel, Donald Jacob Uitvlugt, Allen Stroud, Su Haddrell, Chrissey Harrison, Ian Hunter, Steve Dillon and Jim Horlock.

The stories in Forgotten Sidekicks span the fantasy genre to modern settings, to the far flung future. There’s a story for every one here. It opens with The Bardic Guide to Disobedience, a story of a Hero and his Bard on the tail end of a mission that’s maybe a little more than they can chew. It’s an amazing opening for a top notch set of short stories, which made me devour this book in just a short weekend. The following story, The Dilettante and Leonard, is a emotional recount of the origins and the last mission of a modern super-hero — that flies, is super-strong, and al., through his sidekick. And all the stories share the same theme: too often the hero is held high and celebrated whilst their sidekicks and comrades are brushed aside; their own battles forgotten, and their actions airbrushed to nothingness from the tales of glory and victory. So the stories in Forgotten Sidekicks aim to shed light onto those unsung men and women and the moments when they save the day, even if they themselves cast aside their prowess.

It’s a compelling collection of short stories (my favourite), full of great narratives that will surely warm your heart and will give you a new understanding of the sidekicks — after all, without them, most heroes wouldn’t have achieved such heights of glory and reputation.

Forgotten Sidekicks is published by Kristell-Ink and can be purchased as a paperback edition or eBook from Amazon. I really recommend it, each one of the stories in the book are exciting, compelling, utterly amazing. And I’ll never look at sidekicks the same way again!
