OK, so it’s not exactly a “movie” as such, just a short promo film for my upcoming novel “KELL’S LEGEND”.
I would claim it’s better than Inglourious Basterds by Quentin “Quezza” Tarantino, but, err, it’s not, so I won’t.
Should be published on YouTube early next week……………. and least it’s kept me out of trouble 🙂
OK, two absolutely stonking books this month.
First up is ORCS by Stan Nicholls, which is fast paced, funny, visceral, fast paced, violent, and puts a brilliant spin on following the adventures of the “bad guys”. It reminds me a lot of that old Bullfrog game Dungeon Keeper, but with a damn sight more plotting and storyline thrown in. Very much recommended! Can’t wait to finish it, so I can read the new ORCS books!
The second text is something I’ve been meaning to get to grips with for, err, about two decades. The Elric series by Michael Moorcock. For some reason I worked my way through Dancers at the End of Time, Castle Brass, Hawkmoon and Warhound and the World’s Pain (my personal fave MM book – awesome!). Elric, although regularly recommended by friends, escaped me. Well, now I’m putting the record straight, enjoying every paragraph, and thoroughly enjoying one of Moorcock’s forgotten (by me) masterpieces.
Kell’s Legend by Andy Remic (Fantasy)
The city has fallen.
The land of Falanor is invaded by an albino army, the Army of Iron. A small group set off to warn the king: Kell, ancient hero; his granddaughter, Nienna and her friend, Katrina; and the ex-Sword Champion of King Leanoric, Saark, disgraced after his affair with the Queen.
Fighting their way south, betrayal follows battle follows deviation, and they are attacked from all quarters by deadly albino soldiers, monstrous harvesters who drain blood from their victims to feed their masters, and the twisted offspring of deviant vachine, the cankers. As Falanor comes under heavy attack and invasion, only then does Nienna learn the truth about grandfather Kell – that he is anything but a noble hero, anything but a Legend.
