The Dark Before the Light – out today.

The latest novel in my ‘Midnight’ sequence of Four Horsemen Universe stories is out today, June 19th. This carries on the action from Endless Night and takes us throughout the Spine Nebula in the fight against Endless Night and their (sometimes) allies. I’ve been co-writing the follow-on novel, One Minute to Midnight, with Chris Kennedy, and we’re just a few days away from completing that. I think I’ll need to go lie down in a darkened room once it’s all over, because it’s climactic stuff! (But only for a few minutes because I’m already working on the next installment for Chimera Company). Here are some more dates: I hope you’re safe and well and these tales of adventure hit the spot for you. 🙂

Human Legion box sets are all available now

Greetings from Human Legion Lockdown HQ Being briefly in between projects, and temporarily not fit enough to write new stories (I think I had the Corona-bug – I was certainly in self-isolation for a couple of weeks), I finished off the second and final Human Legion boxed set, which several people had been bugging me to finish off. Just in time, as it turns out, because I’ve now started work on my fourth Four Horsemen Universe novel. As with the first boxed set, I added author notes and collected some short stories. Most of these were originally published in the Legion Bulletin a few years ago, but I tweaked all the stories and redid the notes. I can tell from my Amazon sales dashboard that most people who read my books are doing so through Kindle Unlimited. If that’s you, […]

Endless Night has fallen*

“All hands, this is the captain. Battle stations! Battle stations! Midnight Sun will execute Plan Mechanix. I repeat, Plan Mechanix. May the gods have mercy upon our enemy’s souls and make our yacks bloat with combat bonuses.” This year, a popular alternative and complement to Valentine’s Day is Endless Night Day, with the release of my latest novel. The quote from the book at the top of this post pretty much sums the book up. For the price of admission (which is free under Kindle Unlimited, BTW) you get ancient artifacts, shady dealings, high-gee boardings, hidden underwater cities, and the reincarnation of a real ancestor of mine who went by the name of Obadiah Jex. I hope y’all like it. To be honest, it’s going to be a bit awkward with the publisher if not, because I’m most of the […]

My orcs rise from the ashes of a post-apoc anthology

In case you missed it, my latest anthology came out last week in From the Ashes, the latest anthology from Bayonet Books. The theme for this anthology is the post-apocalypse and my story features orcs, humans and Chinese vampire deer in the ruins of Bedfordshire. I haven’t read all the other tales yet, but I read Walt Robillard’s story and its full-on action that also features orcs and humans. But the orcs in Walt’s case are three meters tall and wield sharpened road signs as axes. Nice. (Walt’s the voice talent on the Human Empire audio, BTW, which is very close to completion now). I’ve been in three of the four Bayonet Books anthologies to come out over the past thirteen months. Reckon they look mighty fine next to the Legion mug I like to caffeinate from when I’m working. […]

Human Legion Deluxe box set 1

The first of two Human Legion box sets has just been released. I’m going to add as many of the short stories, novelettes, articles and author notes as I can*, which is why I added the ‘deluxe’ label. I hope you feel it’s justified! It’s a cool image of a slipcase box, but regrettably, that’s just the publishing fashion and this is only available as a Kindle book. The good part of that, though, is that if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription, you can borrow this for free and skip to the bonus material if that’s what you prefer. CONTENTS 2741 AD – Preface 2565 AD – Marine Cadet (novel + new author notes) 2566 AD – Indigo Squad (novel + new author notes) 2567 AD – Trial of a Traitor (short story + new author notes) 2568 AD […]

Season 2 is complete. Boxed set available now.

Chimera Company Season 2: Deep Cover was a blast to write, and I hope you took equal pleasure in reading the story unfold across all nine issues. If you were holding out for the end of season compilations, the eBook boxed set is available to buy or borrow through Kindle Unlimited. We also have a big fat paperback. If you’ve not yet started with Chimera Company, there’s a deal on the first season of this space opera adventure until Christmas. And I just want to say a special thank you to Vincent Sammy for being such an crucial believer in Chimera Company and delivering such awesome artwork. There’s plenty more Chimera Company coming your way next year. Next up from me, though, will be a race between a novelette in a post-apocalypse anthology where I take some advice from my […]

Chimera Company Issue #4

A new issue of Chimera Company: Deep Cover comes out every Tuesday, and this week’s cover star is Gliesan starship mechanic, Catkins. We’ve encountered the alien glider race in many of the Human Legion and Revenge Squad novels, but this is the first time we’ve had a member of the gliding race featured in Vincent Sammy’s artwork. All nine issues of Season 2 are available for order or pre-order here (that’s the US series page. There isn’t a series page for other regions; I’m working on it). And for people wanting it all in one package, the eBook boxed set is available on pre-order, and looks pretty cool. Paperback will be available at the end of the series run. I’m really excited about Chimera Company. It’s the best thing I’ve written. Or was… I’m taking a quick break to write […]
