VOYAGER TAKEOVER: ANNOUNCING The City Of Brass

VOYAGER TAKEOVER: ANNOUNCING The City Of Brass 

Well, the cake and coffee and various other sweet things have run out. The seating is comfortable, but we’re getting a bit bored of being lazy now (I know… I thought it would never happen as well!).

You’re about to hear about […]

Cover Reveal for A Veil Of Spears

Cover Reveal for A Veil Of Spears 

I can still remember the first time I heard of Bradley Beaulieu. It was 2011 when he was in the running for the Gemmell Morningstar Award with The Winds of Khalakovo. That was a great book and anyone who read it knew that Bradley would go far should he stick with Fantasy. However, Khalakovo was a […]

Cover Reveal for ‘The Seven’ by Peter Newman 

If you’ve read our reviews for The Vagrant and The Malice, you know how highly we rate the novels of Peter Newman. It’s very rare that you pick up a Fantasy book and find yourself unable to compare it to another, but the narrative style, those abstract prose, will leave you struggling to point to authors who even […]
