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 […]

Chimera Company: Deep Cover is out now

The second season of Chimera Company launched last night. In Chimera Company: Deep Cover the team needs to stop running and turn and fight against the evils swirling about Far Reach Federation. There are nine issues, with a new one releasing every Tuesday, to be followed by a boxed set and paperback collection. If you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, then it’s your lucky day because you can read them all for free. If not, well they’re priced at 99c/p/e per issue for most regions. If you haven’t read Season 1: Rho-Torkis, then you can go back and read it now, or join in the weekly thrills right here with Season 2. Here are a few of the things I’ve got in store for you in Season 2: deep space pursuit, sacrifices made for the sake of the team, Dyson rings, […]

Will anyone get off Rho-Torkis alive?

Chimera Company faces impossible odds in the burning city of Bresca-Brevae. Will anyone make it through? Well… I guess the fact that I’m about to finish writing Season 2 over the next few days kind of gives the game away. But not everyone makes it through Season 1. You have to keep reading through to Issue #8 to find out, and that’s the issue that came out today. I’ve loved doing these weekly serials. There’s more coming soon (late summer), but it’s not quite over yet for this current burst of everything Chimera Company. If you’ve joined the Legion, then I’ll be doing an end of season round of Legion Bulletins with background details on the Muryani Expansion that drops a few hints about later seasons (and some red herrings to keep you guessing). And then I’ll be sharing the […]

The coolest rogue in the Federation

Issue #7 of Chimera Company Season 1 came out yesterday. We’ve been on the ice world of Rho-Torkis so far, but we reach the spaceport and get a hint of the wider galaxy. And it’s a big one! It has smugglers and rogues too… That’s Captain Tavistock Fitzwilliam on the cover this week. Tap the image to find out more. I hope you’re enjoying the new series. How are you finding the weekly episodes? I know some people weren’t convinced and now are. Some weren’t and still aren’t, and a few (not many) get it from the off. Currently, I’m planning on running Season 2 the same way. For Season 3, I don’t know. It’s possible I could deliver all in one go as a conventional book, but with Chimera Company, it will always be episodic like a TV series, […]

Chimera Company is in print

“Chimera Company is the weekly sci-fi serial that won’t put your current read on hold. “ As you can see, it’s now got it’s own tagline, but with Issue #5 dropping earlier this week, where are we with Chimera Company? Well, not too brilliant so far, to be honest. I’m very grateful for those who had bought or Kindle Unlimited borrowed the issues, and even more grateful to those who had reviewed them. However, sales are very modest and reviews on Amazon almost non-existent. So it’s a fragile start, but it’s early days and sales are gradually building. An unexpected Chimera development is that, due to a legal complication involving the audiobook (which I’ll explain over a beer for anyone who really wants to know), the Season 1 eBook and paperback collections are available now. You can find out more […]
