I’m writing a novel in the Four Horsemen Universe

Revenge Squad and Four Horsemen book launches today

We have bountiful science fiction goodness for you today. Second Strike is out today in paperback and Kindle editions, the latter at the special launch price of 99c or whatever not very much is in other stores. It was supposed to be just another job: trash the cargo of a shipping line that had been messing with a Revenge Squad client. Honestly, I hadn’t meant to blow the ship sky high. And when it transpired that the ship was owned by the most powerful man in Port Zahir, and that he blamed us for the damage he’d suffered, it was Revenge Squad’s turn to face revenge. My name is NJ McCall, and this is the story of how I helped to tear Port Zahir apart, and then tried to stitch it back together… with mixed results. It’s about dark obsessions, […]

Sept 15th is LAUNCH DAY

Friday will be full of launch madness with four launches. Well, two-and-a-half plus relaunches. Second Strike, is the latest full-length Revenge Squad novel, the urban fantasy/ space opera crossover series set in the worlds of the Human Legion. Like my other launches, it will be initially available at a special launch price. I might have written the words (and Vincent Sammy painted the picture), but the story belongs to someone else, so I’ll let him explain what it’s about: It was supposed to be just another job: trash the cargo of a shipping line that had been messing with a Revenge Squad client. Honestly, I hadn’t meant to blow the ship sky high. And when it transpired that the ship was owned by the most powerful man in Port Zahir, and that he blamed us for the damage he’d suffered, it […]

Stream ‘Demons of Kor-Lir’ audiobook today

I’m back from a week’s camping and can confirm that my 2010 Kindle3 with Amazon leather case (with built-in light) still needs just a single charge to supply a week’s worth of reading at night in my sleeping bag. I read Explorations: War and Golden Horde, which (was) the latest in the 4 Horsemen Universe series. Great stuff. I didn’t listen to audiobooks, but if that’s your thing, then Demons of Kor-Lir is available to stream now. This is the prequel novella to JR Handley’s Sleeping series that we licensed to Podium Publishing, and it sounds great! To get to the audiobook, you need to register with audfans.com (which is free and doesn’t require credit card details) and then you listen to the story through  Soundcloud. For me, that means pressing play on the website here and off it goes, […]

You got your ears on, Sleeping Legion fans?

The Sleeping Legion will arrive in audio over the next couple of weeks! Demons of Kor-Lir and The Legion Awakes are published by Podium Publishing and narrated by Jeffrey Kafer (who narrated Earthrise by Daniel Arenson, the Frontiers Saga by Ryk Brown, Blood on the Stars by Jay Allan, The Empire’s Corps by Chris Nuttall, War Eternal by M.R. Forbes, Starship’s Mage by Glynn Stewart and a whole host of other cool books that I can’t be bothered to type up.) I’ve heard the recordings myself and they are very classy. Demons of Kor-Lir is the prequel novella, and Podium will be releasing that around August 27th exclusively through AudFans.com. Now, this is a new place to me, as a relative audio newbie, but is a great way for audio publishers to give away free introductory novellas and bonus stories. […]

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 […]
