HARDCORE, the new Combat K novel, is officially out 4th January 2010. However, those nice folks at Solaris and Forbidden Planet have teamed up to let me do a “pre-publication” signing event at Forbidden Planet in Liverpool. Why Liverpool you ask? Well, my mother’s side of the family originate from Liverpool, so I have blood there, and family there—– should be fun!!
So, if you want your hands on a copy of HARDCORE nearly a month earlier than official publication, or just fancy a coffee and a chat, please drop in 🙂
Here’s the official press release and links:

The tense dynamic of the Combat-K squad is back as Keenan, Franco and Pippa face their hardest brief yet – Sick World, a planet once dedicated to the ill, the deformed and the dying. A thousand years ago, it was a state-of-the-art research facility dedicated to the new ailments contracted by humanity after mixing with alien races; today, it lies deserted. On a reconnaissance mission, the Combat-K squad are about the find out that the staff of Sick World have only been in hibernation – a millennium-long gestation of new, hardcore healthcare technology. And now, they can smell fresh meat.
Hailed as ‘the new David Gemmell’ and recently nominated for the David Gemmell Legend Award for his fantasy novel Kell’s Legend, Andy Remic is a British writer and teacher with an unhealthy love of martial arts, kick-arse bikes, mountain climbing and computer hacking. The new master of violent, high-octane science fiction, Hardcore is his seventh novel and follows the characters from the massively successful Combat K series.
