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 an anthology due out later this year. The latter features orcs and real-life vampire deer, which look like the picture […]

Audio. Audio. Audio.

It’s the hottest thing in publishing. It’s the savior of publishers seeing their eBook sales plummet. I’m talking, of course, about audiobooks. Personally, I’m something of a late convert, but recently, I’ve been running a lot more and when I’m not being chased by zombies (from the Zombies, Run! Game) I’ve started listening to audiobooks. At the moment I’m enjoying listening to Wraithkin by Jason Cordova. But let’s bring this back to the Human Legion and the Four Horsemen Universe (4HU), where I’m bursting with audio news for you today. And there will be more later in the week. First of all, I’ve been listening for some time now to a stream of Human Legion listeners asking when the later Legion novels will be coming out on audio. Well, I’m pleased to say the answer is very soon. I’ve signed […]

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 […]

Win a signed Human Legion audiobook

  The website has been quiet of late because the (virtual) builders have been in rewiring and extending and took a little longer than I expected, but there’s plenty to talk about now that it’s back up and running properly. First of all: audio! Tantor Media published audio editions of the first three Legion novels earlier this year, and very fine they are too. Initially they were available as MP3 downloads and CDs from Tantor.com, Audible.com and Amazon, although the CD versions were shipped from the US, so pricey if you lived elsewhere. But in recent weeks, they’ve snuck into the Amazon store as ‘Whispersync for Voice’ editions. What this means is that if you already have the Kindle version, you can add on Tantor’s audio edition for a few dollars. Here in the UK, the audio add-on costs £2.99. […]

Book 5 releasing soon

Thanks for your patience, everyone. Here’s a quick update on the progress of Book 5: War Against the White Knights. I finished the first draft of the novel earlier this week, and it weighs in at just over a hundred thousand words. Now, first drafts can be a bit rough, but Ian and I have been editing each other’s chapters all the way through. I’m still waiting for Ian’s feedback on the last two chapters, but other than that the draft pretty tight. Normally, by this point I would have asked for volunteers to sign up to a Force Recon Team. The volunteers from previous books have given us sage advice, but running the Recon Teams takes time, and so I’ve decided not to call for volunteers this time around, so I can get the book to you quicker. I fully intend […]

Have a science fiction Christmas with Human Legion audiobooks

Tantor Media have been busy producing audio editions of the first three novels in the Human Legion series. Narrator Tom Zingarelli does a fantastic job of bringing Arun McEwan and the others to life. It is a strange experience for me to hear a voice actor speak the words I wrote in 2014.   You can hear a sample of Marine Cadet here and of Indigo Squad here. You can pre-order CDs or an mp3 download at the Tantor website (follow the links above to the audio samples). You can buy CDs from most Amazon stores too, though at the moment the purchase links seem to be for CDs only and aren’t available in Australia. The audio edition of Marine Cadet is available to pre-order now for release on December 22nd. The next two audiobooks will be launched at monthly intervals. […]
