It’s a busy month in Remic Land #2. Over at Angry Robot Books you can read a free extract of my recently released novel, Twilight of the Dragons, follow-up to the very well received The Dragon Engine published last year.
“During a recent dwarf civil-war deep under the Karamakkos Mountains, the magick-enslaved dragonlords have broken free from centuries of imprisonment and slaughtered tens of thousands throughout the Five Havens before exploding from the mountain and heading in fire and vengeance for the lands of Vagandrak.
Two once-noble war heroes of Vagandrak – Dakeroth and his wife Jonti Tal, an archer and scholar, the Axeman, the White Witch and a Kaalesh combat expert find themselves in a unique position: for they have discovered the ancient dragon city of Wyrmblood, and a thousand unhatched dragon eggs.
Dakeroth and his companions must work with their enemies, Skalg and the Church of Hate, in order to bring down the dragonlords and save the world of men and dwarves. But there is no bartering with these ancient dragons; for they seek to hatch their eggs and rebuild the cruel Wyrmblood Empire of legend.
File Under: Fantasy [ Hatchlings and Hatchets | Chop-chop! | Give Love a Chance | Dragons vs Wolves ]”

Twilight of the Dragons. Out now, worldwide, published by Angry Robot Books. Go buy it. It’s good. Honest. I wrote it. 🙂
Thank you to Stan Nicholls for the cover quote, Marco for being patient, Lee Gibbons for awesome cover art, and MDV for the proofreading.
And so, between teaching, doing copy-edits (on my next two books), working on my PhD and dealing with idiots and psychos, suddenly my next book is released! And here it is – Return of Souls – the second volume in my Song for No Man’s Land novella trilogy for TOR in the US. This is one of my favourites, and I hope you enjoy!!!

FREE FREE FREE! Amazing composer Digital Front was so inspired by Andy Remic’s recent World War I dark fantasy novella, A Song For No Man’s Land, that he decided to create an accompanying soundtrack which can be yours, for FREE. If you pootle on down to www.digital-front.com you’ll be able to listen to the soundtrack, and in fact download your very own copy to put on the music player of your choice. Not only that, but Digital Front has also created a second, more ethereal version of the soundtrack which can be found at www.soundcloud.com/digital_front. AND he’s also created a 15 minute ambient backdrop which can be listened to when reading the book! Wow! And all that for FREE! (Did I mention it was free?).
When pushed to explain this madness, Digital Front proclaimed, “The bleak and gritty terror of fighting on the Front in the First World War, with dark otherworldly beings, beautifully evocative cover art and Remic’s rock solid writing, couldn’t help but inspire me to put music to this unique and compelling tale of dark fantasy and horror played out against the backdrop of one of history’s blackest moments.”
Here’s a poster to advertise the tracks, with that sublime artwork by Jeffrey Alan Love.
