During the Horus Heresy Weekender this past weekend, someone let slip the titles of two of my forthcoming projects from Black Library. So, since they’re out in the open, I thought I’d share the images, in lieu of anything substantive. (more…)
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.
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…)
Sharkpunk, the ultimate anthology of killer shark stories from Snow Books and editor Jonathan Green, is now out in audio format, courtesy of Circle of Spears Productions. It’s available as a disc or as a digital download, for your listening pleasure.
Sharkpunk was also recently reviewed by both Black Static Magazine and the Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviewer, with the latter making special mention of my contribution, “Deep Red Bells”. The story sees Charles St. Cyprian, the Royal Occultist, and his assistant, Ebe Gallowglass, investigating a case of selachimorphic possession in Dorset. Needless to say, things go very badly, very quickly.
And speaking of the Royal Occultist and sharks, Sharkpunk 2 is coming, and a new story. “The Thunder, His Passing” finds St. Cyprian and Gallowglass in Fiji, facing off with a hungry shark god. If that sounds interesting, why not check out the Facebook page?
Sent to the Realm of Death in search of Nagash himself, Lord-Celestant Tarsus and his Bull-Hearts find an unexpected–and untrustworthy ally–whose destiny will become entwined with their own… (more…)
As a tabletop tie-in writer, it’s always a fine thing to hear that a story you wrote inspired someone to create something spiffy. It doesn’t happen very often with my stuff, but when it does, I like to call attention to it. (more…)
