The White Towers

 

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!!

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

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.

The Iron Wolves Has Landed!

That’s right, The Iron Wolves is now available around the globe as a paperback, digital book and, my first (whoop!), a proper audio book read by a proper narrator (as opposed to me, squawking into a microphone). The audio version is performed by Napoleon Ryan, and he does a damn good job. :-)

A Christmas of Wolves!!

It would seem this Christmas I am blessed, and indeed, it has come early!! Not only did the postie bring New Model Army’s latest album, Between Dog and Wolf (my favourite band), he also brought the audiobook version of my new novel, The Iron Wolves. Coincidence – with all this wolf-themery? Surely not?? (I wrote TIW end 12/early 13). The NMA album is absolutely brilliant - really thundering tribal drums, subtle harmonies and cool lyrics (and considerable bravery with NMA doing something new and original). And, ahem, a very good aural accompaniment to the reading of my book, as its very Celtic, moody, dreamy, tribal.

Napoleon Ryan’s reading of my book is amazing, professional and growling/spitting/snarling as required. Well done that man!! Well impressed (although I still wanted Brian Blessed to do it).

So then. Maybe this year I’ll have a good Christmas!!?? :-) Here’s hoping. Last year’s was….. Not Good. “And the things that followed? Well. None of that was supposed to happen.” (c)2014 http://www.impuritythemovie.com/

THE IRON WOLVES – Promotional Tour

The Iron WolvesHi there peeps,

My new book THE IRON WOLVES, a fast-paced, violent, dark fantasy full of violence, hatred and (yes!) some small slivers of honour, is published January 2014 by Angry Robot Books.

In time-honoured tradition, I am whoring myself for promotional purposes in the month of DECEMBER 2013. So, if you fancy interviewing me (in the pub, Skype, or via email; I’ll drive to you as long as you get the first round of Hobgoblin in) or joining my BLOG TOUR (now I feel Rockstar!!) then please let me know. If you have a current blog theme, let me know that and I’ll link in with it so it’s not just shameless pimping (yeah, right!!). I just need a topic, word length and deadline.

If not, absolutely NO WORRIES. I know how jolly busy we all are!!

Below is the blurb. Photos on request (I’m doing a new photo shoot tomorrow and really, really dreading it; although I do have fabulous breasts).

I’ll also be pimping my soon-to-be-released horror movie IMPURITY, starring the one and only FRAZER HINES who played JAMIE in DOCTOR WHO, at the same time. :-)

What do you get out of it? Well, I can supply a “reviewer’s thank-you pack” – currently an IRON WOLVES poster, bookmark and t-shirt. And you’ll also benefit in some media fallout – especially if we get drunk at interview and show our big hairy bottoms.

Oh yes. ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) are now available in paperback from Angry Robot. So drop them a line if you want a review copy. :-)

Many thanks if you read this far,

Andy Remic.

THE IRON WOLVES by ANDY REMIC

Thirty years ago, the Iron Wolves held back mud-orc hordes at the Pass of Splintered Bones, and led a brutal charge that saw the sorcerer Morkagoth slain. This ended the War of Zakora, and made the Iron Wolves heroes.

Now, a new terror stalks the realm. In hushed whispers, it is claimed the Horse Lady, Orlana the Changer, has escaped from the Chaos Halls and is building an army, twisting horses, lions and bears into terrible, bloody hunters, summoning mud-orcs from then slime and heading north to Vagandrak where, it said, the noble King Yoon has gone insane…

After hearing a prophecy from a blind seer, aged General Dalgoran searches to reunite the heroes of old for what he believes will be the final battle. But as mud-orcs and twisted beasts tear through the land, Dalgoran discovers the Iron Wolves are no longer heroes of legend… Narnok is a violent whoremaster, Kiki a honey-leaf drug peddler, and Prince Zastarte a drinker, a gambler, amoral and decadent: now he likes to hear people scream as they burn…

United in hate, the Iron Wolves travel to the Pass of Splintered Bones; and as half a million mud-orcs gather, General Dalgoran realises his grave error. Together, the Iron Wolves hold a terrible secret which has tortured them for three decades. Now, they only wish to be human again…

THE FOUR REALMS-

Half-vampire Darwin stumbles across a corpse on the streets of London, and in a pocket discovers a notebook in a mysterious language. Divided between human ethics and vampire bloodlust, Darwin finds himself both condemner and saviour of a race who’ve never considered him one of their own. Now, he must try and lead the survivors to sanctuary in New Salisbury before Mr West completes his genocide of the vampires in his quest to obtain the book…

Maureen Summerglass is eighty-two years old, and a prisoner in her ramshackle home. She is afraid to let people enter in case they discover the oak door in her cellar. Threatened with homelessness and retirement from her job as a gatekeeper between worlds, Maureen breaks protocol when the death of a close friend is covered up… and enters the city of New Salisbury to search for his missing notebook. There, she discovers a world unlike the one of myth and fairy tale she imagined, and instead one of black market economies, brand names and tuk tuks. As she investigates, not only is she in extreme danger, but discovers she may be the first human female able to use magic…
