An anti-hero is a flawed hero, and therefore, much more interesting then the more traditional heroes. They can be working on the side of good, but with a tragic flaw, or a horrible past, or for reasons that are selfish and not entirely ‘pure’.”
One of my favorite anti-heroes in speculative fiction is Thomas Covenant, a man so wounded physically and spiritually by his leprosy that he lashes out and starts a chain of events that changes a world.
So how about you? Who are your favorite anti-heroes in speculative fiction (LGBT or mainstream) and why? As a reader, do you like reading books with anti-heroes? As a writer, have you written any?
