Fifteen awesome authors. Fifteen outstanding stories. One amazing universe.
From the outside, The Lyon’s Den doesn’t look like much; there isn’t even a sign. But Mercs of all species know that if you head to Southwest Houston, near the Starport, there’s a particular run-down strip mall that looks like it’s been abandoned for years. The glass door second from the south end of the strip is plastered over on the inside with blue paper, and the faint golden outline of a rampant lion is the only clue.
The door is locked, of course, and beyond the door is nothing but a darkened hallway with a downward slope and a slight curve to it. Once you follow this curve far enough, you are greeted by two very large, very well-armed Lumar. “Welcome to the Lyon’s Den,” the larger of the two says without a translator, and without a trace of an alien accent. “You know the rules?”
Welcome back to the Four Horsemen universe, where only a willingness to fight and die for money separates humans from the majority of the other races. Edited by best-selling authors and universe creators Mark Wandrey and Chris Kennedy, The Gates of Hell: More Tales from the Lyon’s Den includes 15 all-new stories in the Four Horsemen universe by a variety of best-selling authors - and some you may not have heard of...yet.
