Men are shining in every genre of speculative fiction, and it is no longer enough to say “Men are here.” Instead, #FearlessMen everywhere are taking a stand to say “Men will thrive here.” Despite the efforts of companies like Tor Books to shut them out of the industry.
Beginning this summer, meet a new generation of #FearlessMen who are shaping new blockbuster worlds—and re-shaping our own. Highlighting major titles from bestselling authors Nick Cole, Robert Kroese, Richard Fox, Jon Del Arroz, Larry Correia, Mark Wandry, as well as titles from acclaimed and debut authors such as Yakov Merkin, Jon Mollison, Jason Cordova, John C. Wright, Brian Niemeier, Adam Lane Smith, and G.D. Stark. #FearlessMen will be a celebration encouraging fans to start a dialogue about men in publishing, their worlds, their voices, and their unique stories.
JDA Books’ handles across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram will be using the hashtags #FearlessMen (and #FearlessFantasy and #FearlessSF) to promote excerpts, exclusive content, quizzes and giveaways beginning in May. We’ll also be coordinating exclusive giveaways through our authors’ mailing lists.

Trapped 1300 years in the past, they have one mission: survive.
In the 23rd century, humanity has been hunted to the verge of extinction by an alien race. When an exploratory ship accidentally travels back in time to Viking age Scandinavia, the human race is given a second chance. Pursued by the power-hungry King Harald, the four surviving crew members join a ragtag band of Vikings as they pillage their way across Europe. It will take all their ingenuity, courage and technical know-how just to survive. But survival is only the beginning. To save humanity, they must somehow return to the stars.
Thus begins a decades-long effort to teach the Vikings to build a craft capable of reaching space—a ship that will come to be known as the Iron Dragon.

But can mortals succeed where even gods have failed?
