I’m writing a novel in the Four Horsemen Universe

April 27, 2018

Kill the bad guys. Get paid… a lot.

My latest novel is out today. It’s my eleventh published one, although I have two more in the drawer that drew some trad publisher interest when it was being shopped around a decade ago. Sisters Sun and Blue are on the run from Earth, operating a mercenary company on behalf of a mysterious alien owner in another part of the galaxy. Many of the mercs are not even human, so when the company becomes embroiled in the repercussions of a crisis on Earth, the sisters have to ask themselves: what are they really fighting for? This novel is part of the Four Horsemen Universe published by Seventh Seal Press, and if you like the sound of it, you can jump into reading this straight away without needing to read the earlier books in the series. Best of all, if you […]

New releases: Chimera Company Season Beta Issue 2, and my Cthulhu Mythos story

Attention: Legionaries! The second of the three-part micro-series went out in the Legion Bulletin Thursday night. Check your spam folder if you didn’t see it. The concluding part is next week. This is the story that features the Legion. The Militia-centered mini-series concluded last month. I’ve already started the main series, but I’m still listening hard to feedback. Thank you very much to everyone who’s been commenting on the prequel series. If you aren’t yet in the Legion, you can see old issues of the Bulletin and get a free starter library by signing up here. I’ve also written a standalone Chimera Company novelette that features some of the same characters for a forthcoming military SF anthology that features the kind of top authors who get to put ‘best-selling’ and ‘award-winning’ after their names. I should be able to announce […]

Legion Bulletin 47 dropped last night with the Chimera Company conclusion

Legion Bulletin 47 dropped in the inboxes of signed-up legionaries last night. This brings  to a conclusion the prequel micro-series featuring sapper of the Legion Osu Sybutu. I’ve invested a significant amount of time in the two prequel series and the prequel novelette I wrote for an anthology due in December. It’s paying off already, though. I’m most of the way through writing season one issue one, and I’m energized by this powerful backstory flooding around that I put in the prequels. For example, Osu Sybutu feels utterly wretched at the end of the issue that dropped last night. He feels like he’s betrayed his honor and that of the Legion. But in issue one, he gets the chance to make amends. You don’t need to read the prequels to enjoy the main seasons, but I feel the emotional depth that […]

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 proud of you. (Don’t make the mistake, by the way, of thinking JR has completely finished writing the adventures of […]
