There are old heroes,
There are bold heroes,
But there are no old, bold heroes
Okay, possibly that's pirates but this post isn't about that sort of boldness.
Where are all the bald heroes? Why aren't there more of them. Or even the guys who have skull trims?
Two of my favourite heroes have skull trims. Though in the case of Zsadist of the BDB it's not because he's losing his hair. However, D, of Zero at the Bone is described as having hair that is barely more than stubble all over his skull.
I don't think it's because there aren't any heroes in the media who are/have been bald or who have skull trims - Patrick Stewart, Jason Statham, Michael Rosenbaum, Richard T. Jones, Lawrence Fishburne to name but a few. So why aren't there more in romantic fiction?
So does anyone have any bald/balding heroes to recommend? I'm serious about this. :) There's a copy of Sweet and Deadly by Charlaine Harris for one poster to this thread. Poster to be chosen at random on Friday by random number at random.number.org.
