Black Man (a.k.a. Thirteen) by Richard Morgan

Black Man (a.k.a. Thirteen) by Richard Morgan
4

Carl Marsalis is a Variant Thirteen, a genetically-engineered throwback to a strain of human that died out thousands of years ago. He is a tough, aggressive loner, instinctively cunning and brutal, predisposed not to follow rules. Thirteens are used as elite soldiers by the government and forcibly retired to Mars, where they can be kept […]

Blackwing by Ed McDonald

Blackwing by Ed McDonald

Ed McDonald’s debut is an impressive tour-de-force of imaginative worldbuilding, gritty characterisation and absorbing writing. Ryhalt Galharrow’s story comes with the intimacy of a first-person point of view. McDonald gives his protagonist a voice as distinctive and world weary as Daniel Polansky’s Warden from The Low Town trilogy. Like the Warden, Galharrow is a soldier […]

Princess of Blood by Tom Lloyd – Cover Reveal

Princess of Blood by Tom Lloyd – Cover Reveal 

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 […]

Blackwing by Ed McDonald – UK Cover Reveal

Blackwing by Ed McDonald – UK Cover Reveal 

I first heard that Ed McDonald had written a book through our Facebook Group. He happened to be a member and commented about having recently won a book contract. I followed Ed’s posts for a while and they all proved he was someone passionate about the genre and who obviously had real knowledge on the […]

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 […]

“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 […]
