Cover Reveal for PRINCESS OF BLOOD by TOM LLOYD 

So here it is: the cover of Princess of Blood in all its monstery goodness. After the brilliant Stranger of Tempest cover we of course went back to Jon McCoy to do this one too and I think you’ll agree it’s a cracker – artwork to grab you by the throat! Before the throat grabbing […]

Nothing Is As It Seems

Nothing Is As It Seems 

I’ve always referred to The Relic Guild Trilogy as a single story chopped up into three books. Mostly because it’s true. It is the tale of a secret band of magickers protecting a million humans in a city hidden at the centre of a giant labyrinth; a city that barely manages to survive, trapped behind […]

Excerpt from ‘Wrong Place, Wrong Time’ – A short story from Sharp Ends by Joe Abercrombie

Excerpt from ‘Wrong Place, Wrong Time’ – A short story from Sharp Ends by Joe Abercrombie 

There are very few authors that Fantasy-Faction forum users and Facebook group members talk about more than Joe Abercrombie. There are many reasons for this, but in addition to truly enjoying his books, there is a feeling amongst the community that Joe Abercrombie is at least part responsible for the favourable direction that our genre has headed […]

Cover Reveal of Twelve Kings by Bradley P. Beaulieu

Cover Reveal of Twelve Kings by Bradley P. Beaulieu 

I am honoured to say that I’ve been involved in the cover design of Bradley P. Beaulieu’s Twelve Kings and possibly even played a (tiny) part in how it turned out. OK… so when I say ‘involved’ all I really did was give Bradley my thoughts on the cover’s numerous drafts over a period of months and when […]

ARC Cover Reveal & Competition for Bradley P. Beaulieu’s Twelve Kings

ARC Cover Reveal & Competition for Bradley P. Beaulieu’s Twelve Kings 

It has been a great year for readers looking to jump aboard a new series and an equally good one for those who like to be wowed by SFF cover art. For those of you who like both (a new series and some damned decent art), we’ve got a treat for you today. Renowned fantasy […]

“The Witcher: Sword Of Destiny” Extract

“The Witcher: Sword Of Destiny” Extract 

The Witcher is far more than the title/class of a character in an SFF Book in its native Poland. In its country of origin, the series of novels and short stories by writer Andrzej Sapkowski has the kind of cult following that The Lord of The Rings has over here in Britain. Indeed, the growing […]

The City Stained Red by Sam Sykes

The City Stained Red by Sam Sykes
4.5

If you’ve read Tome of the Undergates you will know roughly what to expect when you pick up a book by Sam Sykes. You take a step away from today’s ‘gritty’ fantasy, that type of fantasy that looks to be ‘like real life, but different’ – i.e. low magic, a couple of beasts that aren’t […]

There and Back Again: A Novice Con-Goer’s Tale

There and Back Again: A Novice Con-Goer’s Tale 

Prologue No, I don’t live in a hole in the ground, but I do live in Devon, which bears a remarkable resemblance to the green and sheltered Shire. But even before Gandalf came calling, I’d heard tell of a land beyond the, erm, Salisbury Plains, a land containing vast treasures of tote bags and books, […]
