Review of Remic’s “Rocket Cat”, his first children’s novel…

GREAT REVIEW OF ROCKET CAT!!… my first kid’s novel…

“Clever, funny, and entertaining Rocket Cat had Liam smiling as I tried to imitate some kitty language for him while reading out loud. A great wholesome read, Rocket Cat gets 10 out of 10 Liams for being such a fantastic kids book…” – The Troubled Scribe

“Whether you have kids or not, ‘Rocket Cat, The Tale of a Cat with a Rocket Pack’ is an exciting and adventurous children’s tale by Andy Remic, that follows the exploits of Tiger Puk as he desperately searches for his captured love, Libby Twinkleye.” – The Troubled Scribe

Andy Remic: An Interview about Anarchy Books…

Yes, here I am being interviewed by The Robot Reader (Angry Robot Books) about our recent collaboration. :-)

Andy Remic is a (super duper) busy man with much on his plate and his finger in many pies (mmmmm, a plate of pies…). He’s the published author of a string of high-octane, all-action sf-techno-thrillers including War Machine, Biohell, Quake and Warhead, as well as the blood and gore-drenched fantasy saga The Clockwork Vampire Chronicles. He’s also a publisher in his own right with the wonderfully noisy, spectacularly spiky and hugely colourful independent press Anarchy Books.

We asked Andy a few questions about Anarchy Books and this is what he had to tell us:

The Robot Reader: How did Anarchy Books come about? What made a published author decide to become a publisher of other authors? ………….”

Rockhard man of SF writes, er, children’s novel….

That’s right! Andy Remic, sword champion, chainsaw warrior, bunny ninja, often described as “The Rock Hard Nutter of SF” and “The Tarantino of Fantasy” and author of 14 novels, has written a loveable fluffy cuddly children’s book entitled ROCKET CAT, about, surprisingly, a cat with a rocket pack. Out 1st July 2012 from Anarchy Books in paperback, EPUB and KINDLE formats.

ROCKET CAT

Tiger Puk the ginger tomcat meets his new true love, the gorgeous kitten Libby Twinkleye. But when evil Redcap Goblin Katcats – Sooty Tailbite, Fang Whiskertwist and the terrifying killer, Claw Pawtangle – steal her away for their master, Chimera of Niffle Heim, Tiger must make a choice…

To lie in the sun purring and washing his fur, or… to dismantle a sports car and build a rocket pack? Tiger breaks out the spanners, and in a feline version of The A-Team, learns meccy hanics, builds his own enny gin, fills the tank with petty rol – and bravely roars off into the night sky!

However, the Redcap Goblin Katcats learn of Tiger’s rescue mission, and on their goblin wings head out to meet him… with their terrible, vast army from the evil world of Niffle Heim!

Will Tiger Puk ever see his Heartsong Libby Twinkleye again?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

ANDY REMIC has written lots of books for adults, but Rocket Cat is his first children’s novel. Originally written a long time ago, in a  galaxy far, far away, this newly polished sparkly Katcat version was written for his little boys, Joseph and Oliver.

Remic lives in Lincolnshire, and enjoys mountain biking, computer games and tinkering with his rocket pack. Read more at: www.andyremic.com and www.anarchy-books.com

New Year News Roundup…

Okay, here we several things to tickle your fancy for the New Year. First up is a couple of antho reviews over at Pornokitsch (www.pornokitsch.com) where fabby SF fanatic editor Ian Whates/Newcon Press (http://newconpress.co.uk/) receives a detailed going over of his anthologies, Conflicts and Further Conflicts:

Conflicts: http://www.pornokitsch.com/2011/12/underground-reading-conflicts-ian-whates.html#more

Further Conflicts: http://www.pornokitsch.com/2011/12/new-releases-further-conflicts-edited-by-ian-whates.html

On another note (but still relating to Pornokitsch), I have just received my absolutely beautifully bound hardback copy of Pandemonium: Stories of the Apocalypse, in which I have a short story Πανδαιμονειον about a disenchanted teacher who gets sucked up an insane visitation of Hell to the mortal realm… http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pandemonium-Stories-Apocalypse-ebook/dp/B00624EIBK/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1325494623&sr=1-1

Finally, Morpheus Tales (http://www.morpheustales.com/) have just released their #15 Supplement, in which my novel Theme Planet is reviewed and, ahem, The Rem is also interviewed. Check out: http://issuu.com/morpheustales/docs/mt15supplement

And finally finally Anarchy Books are just finishing their FREE BOOK PROMOTION which has been a great success (nearly 20,000 downloads great success/ which is good, I think, for a leedle publisher like Anarchy), and you can just nip in at the end of the promotion and bag your free books by brilliant authors such as James Lovegrove, Eric Brown, Gary McMahon, Dan Henk, Jeffrey Thomas and Vincent Holland-Keen.
