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’d have thought that during our capture, Harper Voyager would have provided us with Netflix or a PS4 […]

Voyager Takeover: Announcing Witchsign

Voyager Takeover: Announcing Witchsign 

The takeover continues, although there’s a vent that we at Fantasy-Faction considered escaping from. When we talked about it though, the cakes, coffee, books and comfortable chairs provided by Voyager are better than our normal work conditions, so we thought we’d let them get on with it… Oh, Den Patrick! 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 […]

John Gwynne is a favourite here at Fantasy Faction. His The Faithful and the Fallen series has been named in our ‘best of’ and ‘most anticipated’ lists time and again, and for good reason.

Cover Reveal for PATERNUS by Dyrk Ashton 

Hello everyone! Some of you may be familiar with my novel, Paternus, from last year’s SPFBO competition hosted by Mark Lawrence (Archsaint of self-published authors). Paternus was Fantasy-Faction’s pick for the final round and ended up taking third place out of three hundred entries. Even with that success, I’ve decided to give the book a new cover. […]

Cover Reveal for THE EMERALD BLADE by Steven Kelliher

Cover Reveal for THE EMERALD BLADE by Steven Kelliher 

Back in August 2016, Steven Kelliher surprised the indie scene with his self-published debut novel, Valley of Embers.  Introducing readers to the LANDKIST universe (where flame-wielding warriors known as Embers struggle in dwindling numbers to defend their homes from the Darkness), Valley of Embers was widely regarded as a solid and highly competent debut. Though Fantasy-Faction didn’t find it […]
