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. […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]
