Spiral, Quake, Warhead and The Downward Spiral

SPIRAL | QUAKE | WARHEAD | THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL

It is with great pleasure, I can now announce the new author editions of my first three SPIRAL novels, first published by Orbit Books in 2003, 2004 and 2005 respectively. Not only that, but I will be publishing a brand new adventure in the series starring Carter and his psychopathic alter-ego, Kade, due out in December 2014. Entitled The Downward Spiral, the novel follows Carter’s adventures directly after the climax of the third instalment, Warhead.

The new author editions (think “Director’s Cut” in movie parlance)will contain the addition of some deleted scenes (such as Sgt Simmo’s darkly humorous Armoury Inspection by military inspectors, OfSTANK), the addition of various new action scenes, new author forewords, notes on “the writing of” and author interviews from the period of original publication. There will also be a bonus linking short-story at the end of SPIRAL.

Finally, I can hereby reveal the new cover artwork, by good friend and artist, Mongrel Jones.

SPIRAL 2014 500 QUAKE 2014 500 WARHEAD 2014 500 Downward Spiral 2014 500

All four books will be published by Anarchy Books (www.anarchy-books.com) and publications dates are as follows:

SPIRAL – February 28th 2014

QUAKE – April 30th 2014

WARHEAD – June 30th 2014

THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL – December 1st 2014.

I’ll be releasing ARCs in due course, and as ever, will be available for interviews, podcasts, guest blogs etc. Please spread the word!!

Dark Places by Digital Front

Listening to Digital Front’s *awesome* horror EP, “Dark Places”, inspired by various horror movies. If you like music, or horror music, Mogwai, or being spooked by listening to music in the dark – then you MUST check this out. It’s totally fabulous. And you can download it for only £2.00. Less than a kebab. You’d be crazy not to listen…….

Andy Remic – IMDB Director

Yes, er, I am now on IMDB as a “Director”. It’s a very strange feeling (a bit like jumping naked into shark infested waters) and I feel like I’m now swimming in a much larger, vicious pond. Should be…. fun!!  Ha!!

You can see my IMDB entry here – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm6146368/

And the entry for my feature film, Impurity, which is currently in post-production, here – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3401658/

It stars Frazer Hines, who played “Jamie” in that little BBC show, what’s it called again……? Oh yes. Doctor Who.

The White Towers – Finished!!

Hah!! After months of slog (and trust me, this was a really hard book to write), I can now announce The White Towers has been written and edited, and has gone off to the Red Pen of Hell that is Lee Harris at Angry Robot Books. I look forward to his mad scribblings with a FULL bottle of whiskey [#joke]. It’s gonna be a rollercoaster ride for those who liked The Iron Wolves…. I can promise you that.!!

Iron Wolves reviews – from SFX Magazine, The Eloquent Page and Beauty in Ruins.

Out 2nd January 2014.

Out 2nd January 2014.

Had some [more!!] great reviews, and here’s a sample of what people are saying about The Iron Wolves:

“Holy crap, but The Iron Wolves was a hell of a lot of fun! It’s as if Robert E. Howard and Fritz Leiber reached out from beyond the grave to collaborate on the kind pulp fantasy they perfected, decided to take Stallone’s The Expendables as their inspiration, recruited Sam Raimi to direct the medieval mayhem, and then demanded that nothing short of the explicit, unrated director’s cut make it into print.” – Bob Milne at Beauty in Ruins.

http://beauty-in-ruins.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/fantasy-review-iron-wolves-by-andy-remic.html

“As I’ve come to expect from Mr Remic, the author doesn’t shy away from describing the awfulness of the splicing process. In fact, be warned those with a nervous disposition, things veer off into the realms of body horror on a number of occasions. It’s one of my favourite things about this particular author’s writing. Nobody does brutal violent chaos better than Andy Remic.” – Paul Holmes, The Eloquent Page.

http://www.theeloquentpage.co.uk/2014/01/01/the-iron-wolves-by-andy-remic/

“As ever, I advise caution when it comes to Mr Remic’s work. His writing is gory as hell and has a raw unstrained quality that isn’t going to be for everyone. Personally, I love it. Often brutal, but in the same moment introspective; hugely violent but also thoughtful. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to discover if you were to venture beyond the realms of Grimdark and out the other side you’d find Andy Remic sat there waiting for you. He’d probably ask you what took you so bloody long.” Paul Holmes, The Eloquent Page.

http://www.theeloquentpage.co.uk/2014/01/01/the-iron-wolves-by-andy-remic/

“If you thought Theon Greyjoy’s castration scene in Game of Thrones was a little restrained, then The Iron Wolves could be the epic fantasy potboiler for you.”

and

“Combining George RR Martin-inspired visceral violence with a touch of Slaine-style bombastic barbarism and a plot straight out of The Lord of the Rings…”

and

“The story moves at a brisk pace as the individual Iron Wolves are recruited, and the tragic transformation of the necromantic Orlana’s half-human/half-horse ‘Splice’ troops will send a shiver down your spine.” – SFX on The Iron Wolves.
