Ghosts of Demesnus

Black Library has released a new Hallowed Knights story this week, if you’re into such things. “The Ghosts of Demesnus” finds Gardus Steel Soul embarking on a personal journey into the secret places of his past – will he find the answers he seeks, or something more sinister? (more…)

Soul’d Out

Quick note to say I’ll be talking Soul Wars on Warhammer TV Friday 15th June, between 4-5pm. You can catch it live on https://www.twitch.tv/warhammer, if you’re interested.  And remember that on 16th June, I’ll be appearing at Black Library Live 2018, in Nottingham. 

You can also head over to the Black Library Facebook page to ask me questions about Soul Wars, or about the rest of my Black Library work. You’ve got until the 14th of June, if there’s something you’ve always wanted to ask me…that you haven’t already, in one of the hundred other places available for you to do that, I mean.

As Sure as Death

I wrote a brief thing about my forthcoming novel, Soul Wars, for Black Library. It’s over at the Warhammer Community site, if you’re interested in reading it. And just a reminder – there’s a contest going on, with a special edition of Soul Wars up for grabs.

The book will be available as a special edition at Black Library Live, and released as a hardback, ebook, and MP3 audiobook on the same week as the new edition of Age of Sigmar. 

The Fading Light

My short story, “The Resolute”, is now available as a digital download from Black Library. Previously published in the Legends of the Age of Sigmar omnibus, it finds Felyndael of the Fading Light and his fellow tree-revenants battling against the forces of the Plague God, Nurgle.  (more…)

Daughter of Pnath

A month back, I conducted an informal poll on social media, looking to see what sort of short story patrons of my Patreon were interested in. Sword and sorcery won handily, so, I decided to use the opportunity to revisit one of my favourite characters – Amina Algol.

Amina is a Lovecraftian Mowgli of sorts, albeit one raised by ghouls, rather than wolves. Alongside her monstrous siblings, Arif and Bera, she wanders the strange kingdoms of Earth’s Dreamlands, upholding the laws of the charnel-god, Mordiggian. Amina and co. have appeared in several of my stories, and there’s at least one more forthcoming this year. But for the moment, patrons can enjoy their newest adventure, “The Orphan of Bones”, in which Amina and her kin pursue a cagey pair of tomb robbers across the deserts of Khem, for the low price of a dollar.

If you do enjoy it, be sure to check out the other stories on my Patreon page – including a number which are free to read – and perhaps leave a comment, hit the ‘Like’ button, or even consider becoming a patron.
