Hell Hounds
Yours For The Price of Your Soul


Heroes in Hell is a series of shared world fantasy books, within the genre Bangsian horror/fantasy, created and edited by Janet Morris and written by her, Chris Morris, C. J. Cherryh and others. The first 12 novels in the saga were published by Baen Books between 1986 and 1989, and stories from the series include both Hugo Award winners and Nebula Award nominees. The series was resurrected in 2011 by Janet Morris with the thirteenth book and eighth anthology in the series, Lawyers in Hell, followed by six more anthologies and three novels between 2012 and 2017.

So, how does it work?

The shared world premise of Heroes in Hell (also called The Damned Saga) is that all the despicable despots and vilest vagabonds from history – and some of the more notable fictional horrors – wind up in Hell together after death, where they set out to continue their dastardly ways. The Encyclopedia of Fantasy states "In the long series of shared world adventures begun with Heroes in Hell, Hell becomes an arena in which all the interesting villains in history can come together to continue the relentless pursuit of their various ends.” Brian Stableford commented that the series "adapted the backcloth of Dantean fantasy as a stage for violent adventures with ironic echoes of infernal comedy.

Does that make you hanker for more?

It should do. Imagine the scope of what you can do with such a formula, for it gives you a crucible in which your most abhorrent aspirations and contemptible cravings can be stirred into a frenzy and unleashed on your imagination.
It’s little wonder the series continues to go from strength to strength:

And do you know what, the Heroes in Hell Universe just got bigger.

If you remember, Doctors in Hell, published in 2015, introduced us to Satan’s go-to genocidal guy in times of trouble, the Goth of Goth’s, Daemon Grim – who just so happens to be none other than the Reaper himself. Fans of the series were delighted when Grim went on to star in his very own Heroes in Hell adventure – Hell Bound.
In Hell Bound, we met some of the slimiest, most duplicitous scum ever to have tarnished the pages of literature, and the book went on to become an international #1 hit. So much so, that fans have clamored for more ever since.

Well, you’ll be glad to know the sequel has arrived.

Entitled, Hell Hounds, it’s a dog eat dog – hunt you down – chew you up and spit you out rollercoaster ride of mishap, misery and mayhem. A quest in which you get to journey throughout some of the topsiest-turviest realms imaginable, and a place with so much action that you’ll learn that Grim’s bite can be far, far worse than his bark.

But don’t take my word for it.
