The Spiral Trilogy

The Fantasy Book Club interviews Andy Remic…

Yes! If you are bored, and wish to listen to me drivel for an hour to the poor devils known as Sam and James at the Square Groot, name-dropping the likes of Mark Gascoigne (Angry Robot Books), Lee Harris (Tor), interviewer Marie Vedat, and lots of dudes involved in my Spectrum Addict film, along with conversation about my early works (Spiral, Combat K, Kell’s Legend) and new and upcoming projects, then you need to listen to this as you a) mow the garden, b) pluck your nostrils, c) administer a much-needed enema to your stinky dog. Go listen. Or not. 🙂

SPIRAL

– No. 1 Best-selling SF/Thriller –

First published by Orbit Books in 2003

Now, for the first time, re-edited and presented here with LOTS of extras…

Spiral. A world where nuclear warheads can be hidden in a briefcase… A world where bio-plagues are held suspended in a teardrop… Prepare for Chaos!

In a world where conventional armies are powerless to defend against a single assassin, the secret organisation known as Spiral exists to fight a shadow war against fanatics and rogue states of every faith and political persuasion.

Meet Carter, Spiral’s toughest operative – retired, in self-imposed exile in the Scottish mountains with his dog and a supply of Lagavulin. But Spiral come under vicious attack, its Demolition Squads wiped out with consummate ease, and Carter is visited by former lover Natasha who persuades him to help… but can he trust her?

Dragged back into the shadowy world of global terrorists and assassination, Carter realises Spiral’s enemies are deadly – for they are the Nex, soldiers blended with insect DNA making them almost unstoppable.

From Germany to the UK, from Africa to LA, from Austria to Russia, Carter is dragged further and further into a complicated world puzzle in a battle for civilization’s survival.

And if Carter fails, the world falls with him.

Second up, we have heroic fantasy saga Darkness by our very own Edward Drake. And get this — it’s being published on his wedding day! So Happy Wedding Day, Mr Drake!! Darkness_500

DARKNESS

THE WARRIOR’S JOURNEY Book 2

by Edward Drake

Castille is a land in ruin. Morrigan and his Paladins have laid waste what once stood, shattering the peace of a hundred years.

Garrick Chilver, newly knighted, along with his companions, set out to find the killer of the last of his family. Together with a murderer, an innocent marked for great power, a veteran of a dozen campaigns, a mysterious sorcerer and two escaped slaves, he will fight to drive back Morrigan’s hellish unleashed nightmares… and avenge those loved ones he has lost.

The Paladins are not the only threat Garrick’s party will face. In the shadows lurk those who wait merely for the right moment to strike at the weakened nation. Corrupt and power-hungry, they see their righteous chance amidst the chaos.

In his pursuit of vengeance, Garrick will lead the knights to the citadel of Rheins, the one defence on the borders of Castille. If the citadel falls, there will be nothing to stop Morrigan’s destructive rage.

The Warrior’s Journey is an epic series of champions and honour, showing what it truly means to be a hero – a shining example of a bright flame ranged against the darkness of chaos!

 

ARCs are now available for reviewers – just email andyremic@outlook.com.

AND TO CELEBRATE, ALL ANARCHY BOOKS WILL BE $0.99 AND ÂŁ0.99 FOR A LIMITED PERIOD……..

 

 

 

SPIRAL | QUAKE | WARHEAD | THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL

It is with great pleasure, I can now announce the new author editions of my first three SPIRAL novels, first published by Orbit Books in 2003, 2004 and 2005 respectively. Not only that, but I will be publishing a brand new adventure in the series starring Carter and his psychopathic alter-ego, Kade, due out in December 2014. Entitled The Downward Spiral, the novel follows Carter’s adventures directly after the climax of the third instalment, Warhead.

The new author editions (think “Director’s Cut” in movie parlance)will contain the addition of some deleted scenes (such as Sgt Simmo’s darkly humorous Armoury Inspection by military inspectors, OfSTANK), the addition of various new action scenes, new author forewords, notes on “the writing of” and author interviews from the period of original publication. There will also be a bonus linking short-story at the end of SPIRAL.

Finally, I can hereby reveal the new cover artwork, by good friend and artist, Mongrel Jones.

SPIRAL 2014 500 QUAKE 2014 500 WARHEAD 2014 500 Downward Spiral 2014 500
