I’ve taken most of Chimera Company off sale

The switch to Theogony Books is underway. Currently the only Chimera Company books on sale are the paperback editions of the omnibuses and the Season 2 eBook boxed set. They will be removed presently. Hopefully every has had plenty of notice in advance. If you’re actively enjoying Chimera Company and are stuck because the the next read isn’t available, do get in touch. It’s a temporary thing until the Theogony releases come out. I don’t have dates yet, but expect some very soon. I plan to finish the first draft of book4 next week. Expect to see inside Nyluga-Ree’s palace, go boating on a methane lake, see Phantom put through her paces in some desperate space combat, and learn the secret of the Broken Worlds. If you want to hear me talk about Chimera Company — and 4HU for that […]

The Battle of Earth is coming

It’s done. The Battle of Earth will begin soon. I don’t normally type THE END, but it seemed fitting this afternoon, because today I finished writing the Human Legion. When you add in the spin off series, including the mighty Sleeping Legion from JR Handley, then once these final books are published, that will take it to 1.6 million published words in the Human Legion Universe. To put that in perspective, Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files novels weigh in at just under 2 million words, Harry Potter is 1.1 million (with 260,000 for Order of the Phoenix alone … I knew that book went on a bit!), and 1.25 million for Iain M. Banks’ Culture books. Recon teams are on standby, and I’ll be building the recon editions and sending them on next Monday. I’m enormously excited to share the conclusion […]

Damage Unlimited: Recon team seeks volunteers

NJ McCall’s gotten himself into deep trouble again in a new novelette called Damage Unlimited. Set in the Naddox Archipelago, some 800 miles from his Revenge Squad base at Port Zahir (and where the gun laws are considerably laxer!), a forestry client activates their revenge clause when an unknown assailant slaughters every living thing at a remote logging site. The forest around here is an extremely dangerous place to be, but so too is NJ McCall. Some battles, though, can’t be won by GX-Cannon and railguns alone… This story is going to be about 15,000 words (about an hour to read). It’s set between Hurt U Back and Second Strike, but is designed to be an introductory self-contained story.  I hope to finish it on Thursday and send out to a select recon team on Saturday. It’s a bit of […]

Marine Novice: cover reveal

Wanted to share some tasty artwork from Vincent Sammy for the Human Legion prequel novella due out early next year. That’s a young Arun McEwan and Springer on the cover. I’ve sketched out the story for Marine Novice in a fair amount of detail, but I’m not going to write it until the Legion climax: The Battle of Earth is completed. But spending time inside the head of this much younger version of McEwan is helping to tie up the end of the series more satisfyingly. It’s feeling natural as I bring the series to a close to be making reference to the first book, and to this prequel too. I’m stoked about how the new book is progressing. With a fair wind and strong coffee, I might just get a section of the new novel out for subscribers to the Legion Bulletin tomorrow (to subscribe you […]
