Legends 2: Stories in Honour of David Gemmell

Introducing the new anthology by NewCon Press in honour of the great David Gemmell.

I am EXTREMELY proud to be a part of this incredible new anthology, populated by so many peers whom I respect and love. Of all the authors I respect, Mr Gemmell was a giant – and it was an honour to get drunk with him!! I saw him as a mentor, and read every one of his novels from the age of 15 upwards. My favourite is Lion of Macedon. Go on. I dare you to argue. Mr Gemmell inspired me to write heroic fantasy way back. So, I raise my glass and salute him in the Hall of Heroes.

Legends II

For any fans of my Iron Wolves series published by Angry Robot books, I have penned a new Iron Wolves adventure…. “Iron Wolves: Retribution” which can be found nowhere else.

Hey peeps!!

Finally, after all these long cold winter months, my next two novels for Angry Robot Books have been announced! The Dragon Engine (due September 2015) and Twilight of the Dragons (TBC) are in production, and should be sedated and allowed from their hefty padlocked cages real soon…

Remic said:  “I am once again thrilled to be working with Angry Robot on my next two hardcore violent fantasy novels, The Dragon Engine and Twilight of the Dragons. Both novels are set in the same world as The Iron Wolves and The White Towers, and feature  a group of honourable heroes who go in search of wealth and immortality… but find a whole barrel-load of trouble instead. These books will hit new levels in fantasy violence and anti-heroic depravity… Game of Thrones? Pffft. Game of Marshmallows compared to what I’m writing now!!”

The White TowersThe White Towers Review – The Eloquent Page

http://www.theeloquentpage.co.uk/2014/06/03/the-white-towers-by-andy-remic/

Er, Paul Holmes really liked the book. Which is a great thing! I am very honoured. The problem is…. Book 3 might be *a little while*…..

“Book two of The Rage of Kings series ends on a suitably shocking note, an impressive feat in itself considering there have been pages and pages of chaos and bloodshed already. I now find myself in the midst of a quandary. I need to know what happens next, immediately if not sooner. Like a warrior addicted to the honey leaf, I’m already craving my next Iron Wolves fix. Damn you Remic! Damn you and your sneakily evil, blackest of black hearts, with all your insanely readable stories and your utterly nutty characters.”

I love this….

“When it comes to all this adult content I count myself a fan of Remic’s raw, often visceral, style. I think it takes genuine skill to know when to go all out and when a moment is best left to a reader’s own imagination. I’ve read more than a few examples from other authors attempting to deliver fictional shocks. More often than not they tend to get this delicate balance wrong. Andy Remic however always manages to tread this fine line with the masterful skill I’ve come to expect.”

and finally…

“Now I’d imagine some of you will be asking the questions “How do I know if Mr Remic is the right author for me? Should I be reading The White Towers?” Fear not… Things regularly get extremely violent – blood, guts, and gore abound. Seriously, try and imagine the most graphic scene you have ever read. Got it? Good. Multiply that by about a factor of 100 and then add more axes….”

Heh. That’s brilliant. Both Kell and Narnok would be proud!!

The White TowersReviews for The White Towers have started coming in, and I’m thrilled with the first one. Bob R. Milne over at Beauty in Ruins (http://beauty-in-ruins.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/fantasy-review-white-towers-by-andy.html) comes out with a few great lines himself-

“Andy Remic really opens up the lives and histories of the Iron Wolves here, providing us with glimpses into who they really are, where they’ve come from, and what makes them tick. It’s an approach that strips away some of the madcap cruelty of the first volume, humanizing the Wolves in such a manner that you can’t help but sympathize with even the darkest of the lot…”

and-

“The villains this time out aren’t mud orcs but elf rats… These guys are really creepy, with the ability to send out roots and tendrils that can either creep inside your head and steal your thoughts, or brutally rape your every orifice and tear you from the inside out.”

and-

“Once again, Remic mixes ample doses of pulp and profanity into his fantasy, with dark horrors balanced by even darker humor, creating a sequel that builds nicely on the original, and which absolutely demands a third.”

Thank you Bob!!!
