Christmas

Christmas Bells

It wouldn’t be Christmas around here without a showing from the Royal Occultist. This year, rather than a free story, I’ve gone one better. The long promised audio version of “Iron Bells”, as performed by Richard Gough-Thomas (Charles St. Cyprian) and Ruth Narramore (Ebe Gallowglass) has finally arrived, just in time for some holiday listening.

You can listen to “The Royal Occultist: Iron Bells” below, or download it, as well as the previous audio adventure, “The Royal Occultist: Case Files”, for free from https://royaloccultist.bandcamp.com/ You can also drop a bit of money, if you like, which is always appreciated these days.

And if you’re still in the mood for some horrific holiday tales, why not check out the free-to-download digital collection, The Royal Occultist: Haunted Holidays? It includes several fan-favourite stories, including “Krampusnacht” and “The Dreaming Dead”, as well as a wonderfully pulpy cover by MD Jackson.

Space Wolf Wednesday

The fourth and final of my contributions to this year’s Black Library Advent Calendar, “The Art of Provocation”, is now available to download, if you’re looking for something to listen to this holiday weekend. It’s the first of several things I’ve written – or will be writing – featuring the irrepressible Space Wolf, Lukas the Trickster. (more…)

One Hundred Woes

The third of my four contributions to this year’s Black Library Advent Calendar, “Doc Morgrim’s Vow”, is now available to download, if you’re looking for some grisly gridiron action. It’s a sequel to my previous Blood Bowl story, “Manglers Never Lose”, and though you don’t need to read one to enjoy the other, I encourage you to do so. Mostly because if they sell well, I might get to write more of them. (more…)

On the Eighth Day of Nagash…

There’s just one more day to earn a chance to win a signed copy of Nagash: The Undying KingI’ll be drawing a name from the hat tomorrow evening, and announcing the winner on Wednesday, so you have until midnight tomorrow night.

The Sheffield branch of the RSPCA does a lot of good work, and all of their funds are raised locally, through donations and charitable events. The centre costs around £2000 a day to run, and that ain’t small potatoes. Every little bit helps, folks. To those of you who’ve donated already – thanks, guys.

Too, how often can you say you got your hands on one of Black Library’s swanky limited editions for the low price of £5.00?  Outside of ebay, I mean. If you can give, great. If not, maybe retweet, reblog or share this post. Whatever gets the word out.

Oh, and Merry Christmas.

Prodigal Child

The second of my four contributions to this year’s Black Library Advent Calendar, “Prodigal”, is now available to download, if you’re looking for something to read. It’s a Fabius Bile story, and something of a prequel to Fabius Bile: Primogenitorthough you don’t need to read one to enjoy the other. (more…)
