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. […]

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.

There’s plenty more Chimera Company coming your way next year. Next up from […]

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 […]

Chimera Company launch issue

The latest chapter in the Human Legion Universe story is now live with the launch issue of Chimera Company available from Amazon. It’s a full-throttle science fiction adventure serial told in weekly episodes that will take roughly 60-90 minutes to read. And for those who would rather enjoy the story all in one go, there’s a season boxed set and audiobook on the way in the coming weeks. You can find out more on the Chimera Company page. Or watch the video. Or just go ahead and buy (or borrow for free in Kindle Unlimited) the first issue from the following Kindle Stores USA | UK | CA | AUS (and elsewhere by going to the USA site first). If […]

Chimera Company is go…

My Star Wars-meets-2000AD weekly space opera serial is now available for pre-order* with the launch issue dropping April 30th. You can grab a look now* at this link. Scroll down at the Amazon book page and you’ll see an interview with me talking about the series. This is my first major new launch for a couple of years and I’m totally excited for Season 1, although I have to say at the moment, Season 2 is shaping up to be even better. I’ve been busy on other fronts too: we’re making progress on audio production for Human Legion and Chimera Company, I’ve pitched a book trilogy set in a popular science fiction franchise, and outlined my first post-apocalyptic story for […]

JR Handley soars while Chimera Company gears up

Breach Team breaches the top-100! I was so pleased last night to see Human Legion Universe alumnus, JR Handley, has broken into the top-100 science fiction bestsellers on amazon.com with a standalone novel collaboration with Chris Winder called Breach Team. Unfortunately, by the time I got around to typing this, the book’s slipped out again. That’s the way it goes, sometimes. Let’s hope it peaks once more. I’m about two-thirds through reading it myself and enjoying it very much. If you liked JR’s Sleeping Legion novels then you will like Breach Team. Reminds me of Demons of Kor-Lir. So, well done to Chris, but especially to JR because we know him so well from his Human Legion Universe stories. I’m […]

So long, JR Handley. Welcome, J.R. Handley.

Legion News! We are no longer publishing JR Handley. Following a major reevaluation of his life, the author previously going by that name wishes to be known as J.R. Handley. *Sigh*. In other words, I realized that JR has been published both with and without the dots in his name, and we’ve settled on the dotty version going forward as the most appropriate. Hopefully the changes will work through Amazon without causing too much mayhem. To celebrate this important event, his Sleeping Legion books will be 99c over the next few days, and this will be effective in Australia and Canada and discounted everywhere else, unlike the last promotion. If you find the books aren’t discounted, then wait a few hours […]

The Battle of Earth begins today

You can now read the story of the Human Legion’s final campaign. The Battle of Earth Part1: Endgame and Part2: Restart are available now in the Kindle store to buy, or borrow for free if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. Paperbacks are not yet ready, but should be by mid-week. I’m really proud of this double-bill climax and I think it benefited more from Recon Team advice than any other book, so thank you; it was a team endeavor. It’s been a while since the last main-line Legion novel, War Against the White Knights, was released, and I know some readers have subsequently come across me from my work with Revenge Squad, the Four Horsemen Universe or elsewhere. For both those […]

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, […]
