Hallowed Knights

Big 96

Barnes & Noble just released a list of ’96 SFF Books to Read in 2017′, and I got a nice mention, alongside Guy Haley and Chris Wraight. I’ve popped up the important bit below, but go check out the full list for yourself.

Plague Garden, by Josh Reynolds (Fall)
Josh is an author of great verve and imaginative flair, able to move between the science fiction, horror and fantasy genres with ease and aplomb. Plague Garden is fast-moving adventure story set in Games Workshop’s gothic Age of Sigmar setting. It is fantasy writ large – with a huge cast of heroes, villains and monsters, all fighting to survive in a dangerous, unpredictable landscape, the eponymous plague garden itself. For this is a realm within a realm, a universe of pure magic, where the normal rules of reality do not apply, and the power of a man’s soul can be stronger than the steel of his sword. – Lindsey D le Doux Priestley, senior editor

Isn’t that nice? I hope they use that ‘power of a man’s soul can be stronger than the steel of his sword’ bit for the blurb on the back cover.

WIP Wednesday #32: Aaron Blur

Get it? Aaron Blur? Like Burr. Aaron Burr. Third vice president of the United States. Shot Alexander Hamilton. No? Isn’t there like a musical or something now? Was that a thing? Anyway, I thought that’d be a perfect super-type name. Aaron Blur, Fastest Politician Alive.

Look, I’m having a weird day, okay? Forget it. On to the weekly update. (more…)
