Bookmark – Signing, Lincolnshire.

Hi there, had a really cool time on Saturday signing at Bookmark with Sam and Frazer. Met lots of really nice people, ate incredible cheesecake,and genuinely visited an amazing “old breed” of bookshop. Bookmark in Spalding is very much recommended, a really pleasant environment in which to shop – and indeed – to do a book signing.

Above, a very pleasant young lady, Terri, and her daughter, who kindly popped in to visit. And below, there’s a pic of me with editor of MURKY DEPTHS,  Terry Martin. I’ll be writing a short story for this brill publication real soon :-)

Upcoming Gigs.

Okay, like a snail crawling out of its (writerly) shell, I have emerged and have a few new gigs lined up—–

First, I’m dropping in to Waterstones, Lincoln this Friday at 12.00 noon (that’s 12th November) to sign a big bunch o’ stock. If you want to call by for a coffee and chat, that’s fine by me. :-)  [I was going to sign, but Jordan - aka Katie Price - beat me to it, grrrrr. She has more, shall we say, momentum than I. Peter Andre - you were a VERY brave man indeed haha!!].

Second, I’m involved in a threeway joint signing at Bookmark in Spalding, along with Sam Stone and actor Frazer Hines, which promises to be a LOT of fun!!

“Meet Sam Stone, Frazer Hines & Horror/SFF Writer Andy Remic at this in quaint award winning independent bookstore.
18-20 The Crescent, Spalding, PE11 1AF.  Tel: 01775 769 231
EVENT TIME: 11am – 1pm”


Third, I’ve got signings coming up at Boston, Manchester, Nottingham and London – just confirming dates over the next few days.

And fourth, and perhaps biggest, I’m attending the SFX Weekender 2 at Camber Sands in Sussex, February 2011. Promises to be a dazzling event!! :-)  I just CANNOT WAIT to see Craig Charles (from Red Dwarf) DJ! Rasta Billy!! and indeed, Dave Bradley, SFX editor, whom I’m a big fan of from his PC Format writing days :-)     –(I still have some old issues with his grinning face in the editorial pages).

“Here’s a special treat for you – Andy Remic reads from the first two volumes in his Clockwork Vampire Trilogy” – so says wiseman Lee Harris of Angry Robot Books. And yes, I committed the crime of doing not one, but two audio podcasts of my Clockwork Vampire novels, Kell’s Legend and Soul Stealers, complete with music and SOUND FX. The joy. Haha.

The audio podcasts can be heard at:

Soul Stealers – Another Great Review SFBook.com (Review No. 4…)

“Soul Stealers is fast, brutal and above all unmissable, there is quite simply nothing out there that can currently compare to Andy Remic’s unrelenting, unforgiving and unflinching style. The new King of Heroic Fantasy has arrived.” — Thank you very much!! I’m flattered. I’m just glad there are people out there who are enjoying the book :-). I certainly had incredible fun writing it!!

Ooh, Second Review of Soul Stealers…

Just found another, at The Eloquent Page – http://www.theeloquentpage.co.uk/2010/09/10/soul-stealers-by-andy-remic/

When reading anything by Andy Remic you can rest assured that things are going to get brutal and bloody very quickly. I would definitely not recommend Kell’s Legend or it’s sequel, Soul Stealers, to those of you that are faint of heart. The violence is as graphic as it gets. The author doesn’t sugar coat anything. There are seas of blood and everyone, irrespective of age and gender, are a potential victim.”

and-

“Based on other reviews I’ve read of Andy Remic’s work I think it’s fair to say that he is the literary equivalent of Marmite due to his extreme brutality, particularly towards his female characters. You read his books and you either love them or hate them. Personally I enjoy everything of his I’ve read. I’ve been a fan since I read his first science fiction novel, Spiral. His move to fantasy novels has been successful. His characters are violent and flawed and can seem to be downright cruel but this always makes for an interesting read.”

I’d have to disagree with this a little; I heap extreme brutality on ALL my characters, male, female, alien, supernatural, deviant, animal, vegetable and mineral. But it’s a very kind review, nontheless. Cheers!!
