Review of Remic’s Toxicity, published 2012 by Solaris Books.

Just received a fabulous review of my latest novel, Toxicity, by Stanley Riiks over at Morpheus Tales.

“There are definitely two sides to this book: the serious, and quite disturbing ecoterrorists and their plotting and battles against the Company; and Svoolzard’s more light-hearted adventure through dangerous territory providing the comedic interludes. Despite the light entertain of Svoolzard’s misdeeds and misadventures, a lot of this book is hardcore, filled with torture and brutality that is not for the faint-hearted.”

and

“When our protagonist is tortured it hurts, and that’s the beauty of Remic’s books. He’s well-known for his fast-paced narratives, his no-holds-barred action and adventure, but because he develops his characters at breakneck speed as well, it actually matters what happens to them. How the author manages to create a wet-wipe like Svool, a cowardly, selfish poet, and then slowly turn you from dislike to having a soft-spot for the man is quite incredible.”

and

“Overall this is an Andy Remic novel, and Remic always delivers.”

and

“Toxicity is funny, brutal, scarily nasty, exciting and great fun.”

and

“If you like your fiction fast and furious, and you should, then you cannot go wrong with an Andy Remic novel. Toxicity is massively entertaining. No one quite writes like Andy Remic; he is the total package, and he seems, literally, unstoppable.”

Er. I think he liked it!! Cheers Stanley!

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.

Cheers!! And Happy New Year.
