Hi there, my first Combat K novel WAR MACHINE published by Solaris Books is part of a Barnes & Noble promotion this weekend (Fri midnight to Sunday midnight EST), alongside other authors such as Eric Brown and Paul Kearney. So, for $0.99 ebooks, head over to…………. and enjoy!! :-)
REMIC READER COMPETITION
OK, so this is the deal. I’ve had a lot of emails recently either demanding a return of Carter/Kade from the original Spiral books, or screeching for the return of Keenan, Franco and Pippa for another Combat K mission.
Well here’s the thing. After finishing THE IRON WOLVES for Angry Robot and my comedy side-project THE BOBBIT, I’ve a bit of free time over the summer — and YOU THE READERS get to choose what I write next!! Because, y’know, Rem LOVES YOU ALL. xxx.
So, here’s the competition bit. Either email me, Andy Remic – jappoc [at] hotmail.co.uk – or give me a tweet @andyremic with the subject line I WANT SPIRAL NEXT or I WANT COMBAT K NEXT, and a single sentence explaining WHY.
THE PRIZE: Well, not only do you choose in which universe I next write, but you’ll also get 1) a free copy of the finished book, both digital and paperback; 2) a marked-up original one-off paper manuscript of the work, with all corrections and everything; 3) the chance to hang out with Rem for the day; probably in a pub.
So what are you waiting for? Get tweeting, facebooking or emailing!!
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.”
“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.”
“Overall this is an Andy Remic novel, and Remic always delivers.”
“Toxicity is funny, brutal, scarily nasty, exciting and great fun.”
“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!

Yes, my fourteenth novel TOXICITY is now available in mass market paperback and ebook formats. Go read it, and let me know what you think!! This is my take on being “green”, and what should be done to the dirty scumbags who destroy our planet….. Toxicity is a standalone fast action SF novel in the “Anarchy Android” universe.

The hardest man in SF is back – and about to destroy perfection! Andy Remic returns to the world of the Anarchy with another brash, no-holds-barred action! Welcome to Manna – the utopian galaxy where all races exist in harmony. Ruled by perfect alien machines, Manna is a place of wisdom, technology and art. But on the edge of the galaxy, far away from romantic holiday cruises, hides Toxicity, a reprocessing planet where The Greenstar Company deals with all Manna’s waste. ALL of it. But ECO terrorist Jenni Xi is fighting a cleanup war against The Company. Yet when a sabotage goes horribly wrong, she learns the future of the planet – and it’s far worse than she ever dreamed. Along with swashbuckler and bon viveur Svoolzard Koolimax and a torture model Anarchy Android known simply as The Dentist, Xi must survive on this polluted world long enough to ensure that the fate of Manna changes forever…
Remic’s irresistible blend of high-octane military SF and good old fashioned adventure is an absolute delight. Edgy, over-the-top, and provocative – Remic is the master of action!
“If you’re looking for something that mixes the sensibilities of Blackadder and an Iron Maiden album cover, with a pinch of vintage 2000 AD thrown in, then look no further.”

About the Series Described by the Guardian as “hard-hitting, galaxy-spanning, no-holds-barred, old-fashioned action adventure,” the Combat K and Anarchy novels are set in a universe of their own – one of planet shattering action, hard-bitten characters and epic intergalactic battles. This is a universe where anything goes, and usually does. Toxicity is the sixth book in the Combat K/ Anarchy series. About the Author Andy Remic is the author of many Fantasy and SF novels, currently – Spiral, Quake, Warhead, War Machine, Biohell, Hardcore, Kell’s Legend, Soul Stealers, Cloneworld and Vampire Warlords.
When kicked to describe himself, Remic claims to have a love of extreme sports, kickass bikes and happy nurses. Once a member of an elite Combat K squad, he has retired from military service and claims to be a cross between an alcoholic Indiana Jones and a bubbly Lara Croft, only without the breasts. Remic lives in Lincolnshire and likes to think lewdly about zombies. www.andyremic.wordpress.com

A wonderful 5 star review of Theme Planet by Andy Remic…
“The plot itself has enough twists and turns to keep you firmly entranced and the pace is pretty much relentless throughout the whole novel, there are a few genuine surprises too and the author throws a few curve balls that I really didn’t see coming at all… there is a real maturity to the prose which does create an effective counterpoint to the over-the-top Theme Park backdrop. I seriously loved this book, as with all of the author’s novels there is a relentless vibrance, an unforgiving energy that you can’t help but be swept along with and this is combined with a great plot, larger than life characters and some powerful messages, highly recommended.” 5 STARS

“Andy Remic is our hard-talking, hard-fighting (bunny rabbit of an…) author whose novels are always full of action packed, gun-blazing hardcore SF. His long-running Combat-K Series is “Fun and fast-paced ass-kicking action.”

However, when his wife and children disappear, and the entire planet seem to turn against Dexter, he realises the Theme Planet has some terrible secrets…”
