The Kaladin Book Soundtrack based on The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson – Call To Action 

Sometimes, when you work in entertainment, you take the gigs that will feed you. Sometimes, you take the gigs that inspire you. Sometimes, the gig pays off. Rarely, a gig can change your life. The Kaladin book soundtrack (inspired by The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson) saved mine. Literally. None of us at The […]

Keeping the Fun in Science Fiction – Guest Blog by Joseph Brassey

Keeping the Fun in Science Fiction – Guest Blog by Joseph Brassey 

Islands sit suspended in an endless heaven, drifting amidst clouds and storms, high above a distant abyss below. Cities crouch upon the edges of cliffs, their walls jutting out into the empty air, and enchanted skycraft hurtle through the heavens, their magnificent wings catching the light of sunsets as the blue-white glow of their exhaust […]

How The Belgariad Taught Me To Write A Cyberpunk Dystopia – Guest Blog by Ferrett Steinmetz

How The Belgariad Taught Me To Write A Cyberpunk Dystopia – Guest Blog by Ferrett Steinmetz 

Full confession: I thought my new novel The Uploaded was a dystopian novel about the miseries that happen five hundred years after humanity perfects brain-uploading. But my publisher Angry Robot told me it was something different. “You wrote a cyberpunk family drama, Ferrett!” I looked up, baffled, from my chocolate milk – the only drink […]

Publishing and LGBT Erasure or My Issues with Robo-Boobs 

I always knew someone would tell me to add a Sexy Lady Robot to my book. When I first starting writing my novel, Echo of the Larkspur, I set out to write a story that was first and foremost about love. Love between a male human and an omnipotent, genderless robot that identified as male, […]

Cover Reveal for A Veil Of Spears

Titus Chalk finally reads the book after which he was named – Mervyn Peake’s gothic classic Titus Groan. “Your name is TITUS,” said Sourdust very simply, “TITUS the seventy-seventh Earl of Groan and Lord of Gormenghast.

Why I Don’t Like Dragons – Guest Blog by Oliver Langmead

Why I Don’t Like Dragons – Guest Blog by Oliver Langmead 

First, a confession: the title of this article is a little bit sensationalist. The truth is, I don’t actively dislike dragons. I don’t go around hating them and huffing and puffing at books with dragons on the cover, and films with dragons in the trailers. My feelings towards dragons is closer to an indifference. They […]

Putting Fantasy On The Map

Putting Fantasy On The Map

It features all the places that no self-respecting fantasy world would be without, from the Northern Shire (the Village […]
