And lo! the short film did arriveth, and lo! it was good(eth)!

Let me know what you think!!?? 🙂

Thanks must go to:

Paul Remic, for Keenan, Nicola Cross, for Pippa and Sonia Scott who played the strangling zombie. Thanks also to all the other actors who turned up either for child parts or as zombies— everybody was such a great sport on the day!! Thanks must go to Bradshaw Profiles in Bury for letting us use their steelworks, and also to the Fusilier Museum in Bury for lending us real weapons to play with!! Cool! And a final special thanks to Colin Howarth for directing. Cheers man!

And a final final thanks must go to musicians, Jordan Reyne and TH3 M1SS1NG for music used in this little film production.


OK, so I’ve made a short film called Chemical Man, mainly as a learning process to get me used to hi-def cams and editing software and, er, working with “actors”. By making something like this, you certainly learn a lot during the process and it’s a damn sight harder than you think!! There are many “mistakes” in the film but hey, it was really good fun and I’ll post Chemical Man soon so I can be pelted with rotten tomatoes, heh. As one friend said when they saw this pic, “Is that you, Rem, in the gimp mask?”. Ho ho. So yes, it is indeed I in the gimp mask.

Please note, I want to say a very special thanks to the musicians who graciously and humorously gave permission to use their vibes in this little film. So thanks to Jordan Reyne for her sultry vocals, thanks to TH3 M1SS1NG which I hate to type but love to listen to, and also especially for that haunting piano track written just for this film; and finally, a HUGE THANKS to the wonderful NEW MODEL ARMY for permisison to use Bad Harvest from their latest album, Today Is A Good Day, and who I’ve been listening to for DECADES!! Wow. I’m totally honoured!!

Just come across another great review of Kell’s Legend – although I didn’t realise Gemmell had the monopoly on “Laddie”, but all comments duly noted 🙂

‘Kell’s Legend’ is a roller coaster ride of a book that grabbed me right from the first page and tore off at a rate of knots like I hadn’t seen in a long time. The only chance anyone gets to take a breather is when Kell removes his axe from a corpse that hasn’t had the time to realise that it’s dead! Before you’ve had a chance to take a proper breath, it’s back into the fray again.

Check out:

Just thought I’d take this opportunity to remind people of the Kell’s Legend video promo I made… link below for those new to the site.

Two new videos here, both from FantasyCon 2009 in Nottingham The first is me reading from Kell’s Legend (I did a lot longer reading, but cut it down for YouTube’s 10 min limit).

The second is a section from the David Gemmell Heroic Fantasy panel, starring Ian Graham, Gail Z. Martin, Simon R. Green, Stephen Deas and Juliet McKenna.

Enjoy! (or vomit, depending on your preference).
