Will anyone get off Rho-Torkis alive?

Chimera Company faces impossible odds in the burning city of Bresca-Brevae. Will anyone make it through? Well… I guess the fact that I’m about to finish writing Season 2 over the next few days kind of gives the game away. But not everyone makes it through Season 1. You have to keep reading through to Issue #8 to find out, and that’s the issue that came out today. I’ve loved doing these weekly serials. There’s more coming soon (late summer), but it’s not quite over yet for this current burst of everything Chimera Company. If you’ve joined the Legion, then I’ll be doing an end of season round of Legion Bulletins with background details on the Muryani Expansion that drops a few hints about later seasons (and some red herrings to keep you guessing). And then I’ll be sharing the […]

The coolest rogue in the Federation

Issue #7 of Chimera Company Season 1 came out yesterday. We’ve been on the ice world of Rho-Torkis so far, but we reach the spaceport and get a hint of the wider galaxy. And it’s a big one! It has smugglers and rogues too… That’s Captain Tavistock Fitzwilliam on the cover this week. Tap the image to find out more. I hope you’re enjoying the new series. How are you finding the weekly episodes? I know some people weren’t convinced and now are. Some weren’t and still aren’t, and a few (not many) get it from the off. Currently, I’m planning on running Season 2 the same way. For Season 3, I don’t know. It’s possible I could deliver all in one go as a conventional book, but with Chimera Company, it will always be episodic like a TV series, […]

Chimera Company is in print

“Chimera Company is the weekly sci-fi serial that won’t put your current read on hold. “ As you can see, it’s now got it’s own tagline, but with Issue #5 dropping earlier this week, where are we with Chimera Company? Well, not too brilliant so far, to be honest. I’m very grateful for those who had bought or Kindle Unlimited borrowed the issues, and even more grateful to those who had reviewed them. However, sales are very modest and reviews on Amazon almost non-existent. So it’s a fragile start, but it’s early days and sales are gradually building. An unexpected Chimera development is that, due to a legal complication involving the audiobook (which I’ll explain over a beer for anyone who really wants to know), the Season 1 eBook and paperback collections are available now. You can find out more […]

The fix for Mount TBR

I made a video to explain in 31 seconds why Chimera Company’s weekly episodes are the solution to a To Be Read pile threatening to become Mount Doom. Of course, not everyone has a problem with this, which is why Chimera Company is also available as a boxed set. I had great fun making it. Hope you enjoy it too. Liking and sharing is always very helpful, thanks. The latest skinny on Chimera Company (including the free prequel download) is always here: https://humanlegion.com/books/chimera-company/ Tim.

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 […]
