Mewithmug100 Rob Howell is the creator of the Shijuren fantasy setting, an author in the Four Horsemen Universe , and editor of When Valor Must Hold , an anthology of heroic fantasy. He writes primarily epic fantasy, space opera, military science fiction, and alternate history.

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

His parents discovered quickly 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.
