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.
