My newest novel, Hallowed Knights: Plague Garden, is up for pre-order on both the Black Library site and various international distributors, and I thought I’d take a moment to talk a bit about it. (more…)
Things proceed apace, as they are wont to do in this life. Words pile up, paragraph by paragraph, page by page, and it never seems to be enough. Worse, they never seem quite right. But still, things proceed. There’s probably a lesson there, but…eh. (more…)
Just a quick note here to mention that I’ll be attending Warhammer Fest this year, along with authors Paul Kearney, Guy Haley, John French, Chris Wraight and Dan Abnett. There’ll be seminars as well as signings, so feel free to come by and say hello, if you’re there and of a mind.
For more information about Warhammer Fest 2017, visit the Warhammer World site.
It’s the first of the month, and that means there’s a new short story available on my Patreon page. “The Charnel Hounds” finds the Royal Occultist, Thomas Carnacki, and his apprentice, Charles St. Cyprian, facing down a horde of starving ghouls in the trenches of the First World War.
If that sounds like something you’d be interested in reading, head over to my Patreon page, pledge a dollar, and check it, as well as the rest of the short stories, out.
Dark Regions Press has released the cover and table of contents for their forthcoming anthology, Arkham Detective Agency, a Lovecraftian-noir tribute to the late C.J. Henderson. I’m proud to say that I have a story in the book, alongside authors such as Konstantine Paradias, Sam Gafford and Glynn Owen Barrass. (more…)
I’ve been remiss in mentioning that the first issue of Broadswords and Blasters is now out and available for download. Among other fine stories is my tale of sword-wielding monks and devils from the deep blue sea, “The Waters So Dark”.
“The Waters So Dark” is the second adventure of Bartolomeo Corsi, former soldier, Florentine monk and monster hunter. On the eve of the Treaty of Venice, Corsi finds himself hunting down a renegade monk and coming face to face with a horror out of the deepest recesses of the sea.
For those unfamiliar with Corsi’s previous adventures, I encourage you to dig up a copy of the Monk Punk/Shadow of the Unknown Omnibus, which includes the story “Evil Fruit”.
The first issue of Broadswords and Blasters is available as a Kindle download. I encourage you to check it out.
It’s Saturday, and I feel like selling some books. Interested in some late 19th century escapades? What about a deadly duel atop the Eiffel Tower? An attempted coup in a country teetering on the edge of revolution? Alien conspiracies? Enough literary Easter eggs to choke a rabbit?
If any of that sounds like your sort of thing, then you should check out either (or both) of the two books below.
The Other Log of Phileas Fogg was only the beginning!
It is 1889 and Phileas Fogg has settled into a life of quiet sequestration in the rural idyll of his family estate with his wife and children. The millenia-old conflict which once threatened to consume him is over and done. Or so he thought. But when an old foe disrupts his peaceful retirement, seeking his aid against an enemy which threatens them both, Fogg finds himself once more thrown into the white-hot crucible of war.
Now, with his loved ones under threat of death, and accompanied by the unpredictable colonel who has been described as the second most dangerous man in London, Fogg must dare the dangers of the City of Light in order to uncover the deadly secrets hidden beneath the streets of Paris. And as the wonders of the Exposition Universelle unfold around him and the air quivers with the impossible reverberation of nine great clangings, Fogg must plunge into the shadowed depths of the Parisian catacombs on the trail of his phantom enemy…
1889. The war of shadows is over, but a new and more deadly conflict has begun in the Central European country of Ruritania. A conflict which threatens to consume the few remaining survivors of the millennia-old struggle between Eridaneans and Capelleans, including Phileas Fogg.
Drawn to the city of Streslau by a mysterious letter, Fogg finds himself accused of a crime he didn’t commit and caught between old allies and new enemies in a struggle for survival. On the run and aided only by the unpredictable Count of Hentzau, Fogg must exert every iota of his famed intellect in order to unravel the mystery of the Heart of Osra – or face the utter annihilation of Eridaneans and Capelleans alike!
