REMIC READER COMPETITION
OK, so this is the deal. I’ve had a lot of emails recently either demanding a return of Carter/Kade from the original Spiral books, or screeching for the return of Keenan, Franco and Pippa for another Combat K mission.
Well here’s the thing. After finishing THE IRON WOLVES for Angry Robot and my comedy side-project THE BOBBIT, I’ve a bit of free time over the summer — and YOU THE READERS get to choose what I write next!! Because, y’know, Rem LOVES YOU ALL. xxx.
So, here’s the competition bit. Either email me, Andy Remic – jappoc [at] hotmail.co.uk – or give me a tweet @andyremic with the subject line I WANT SPIRAL NEXT or I WANT COMBAT K NEXT, and a single sentence explaining WHY.
THE PRIZE: Well, not only do you choose in which universe I next write, but you’ll also get 1) a free copy of the finished book, both digital and paperback; 2) a marked-up original one-off paper manuscript of the work, with all corrections and everything; 3) the chance to hang out with Rem for the day; probably in a pub.
So what are you waiting for? Get tweeting, facebooking or emailing!!
That’s right, today Orbit have released my first three novels – SPIRAL, QUAKE and WARHEAD as wonderful fabulous eBooks. You can read more about this monumental event at: http://www.orbitbooks.net/2011/09/15/andy-remic-unleashed-in-ebook/ – and indeed, now read my first three fast-paced action SF thrillers on your digital reader of choice.
“Hugely entertaining and packed with more explosive action scenes than is probably decent, SPIRAL starts off loud and ends in a bang” – WATERSTONE’S BOOKS QUARTERLY
“Spiral is certainly chock full of action … ideal summer reading if you’re looking for something filmic” – SFRevu
“A new writer who knows what a regular reader sitting on the bus wants – action . . . Pure Die Hard, pure Rambo. This has got to be a film, surely!” – LADSMAG
“Fans of the action adventure genre will not be disappointed by SPIRAL . . . A light, fast read with quick action” – THE REVIEWS PAGE
It is with the most awesomest of pleasures that I can announce that those fine people at ORBIT BOOKS are going to release my SPIRAL TRILOGY (being made up of Spiral, Quake and Warhead) as ebooks on September 15th 2011 for the low low low price of £4.49 each. Hurrah! Have a peep over at: http://www.orbitbooks.net/
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. 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. Remorseless, unstoppable, of every country and of
none, SPIRAL’s agents conduct their covert operations throughout the world in a
never-ending battle for civilization’s survival. But now SPIRAL itself is under
attack, and if SPIRAL falls the world falls with it.
In a future where sinister
organisations plot mass destruction… In a world where power is no longer held
by nations… Chaos is rising. The secret organisation known as SPIRAL exists to
fight a shadow war against fanatics and rogue states of every creed and political
persuasion. Remorseless, unstoppable, of every country and of none, SPIRAL
conducts its covert operations throughout the world in a never-ending battle
for humanity’s survival. But now Carter, SPIRAL’s toughest operative, is facing
a new and terrifying challenge. The world is being held to ransom by the
creators of a new and devastating machine. One that is capable of wreaking
seismic havoc, causing earthquakes and eruptions on a global scale. It must be
destroyed – and Carter must do it alone.
It is the future. The earth has been
devastated by a nuclear holocaust and humanity is trapped under the iron fist
of a new world government. But the promises of salvation are lies and a fate
even more terrible awaits mankind. The secret organisation known as SPIRAL, the
last line of defence against global chaos, has been forced underground. They
are powerless, it seems, against the might of the military and their
propaganda. And now, it appears that SPIRAL has been betrayed by one of its
own. Only Carter, their toughest agent, might prevent SPIRAL’s most guarded
secret falling into the hands of the enemy. But not even Carter has faced an
enemy who is prepared to destroy the entire planet to get what he wants.
Wow, Jess Horsley has written a retrospective on my books over at http://www.figures.com/forums/news/13477-recent-retrospecitve-author-andy-remics-work.html
I’m amazingly flattered!!
“British author Andy Remic is quite clearly a crazed madman intent on forcing
those of us smart enough (or sick enough) to read his books to fall madly in
love with his writing, thus making us want his work all the more and, in turn,
making us all the more smart…or sick. Simply pick up ANY of Remic’s novels – including the hardcore
action Spiral trilogy, the brilliant fantasy trilogy called The Clockwork Vampire
Chronicles, the on-going military sci-fi series Combat K, or the brutal Serial Killers, Inc. – and you’ll immediately notice how
this twisted writer delivers not only some of the best action scenes around, but
also impressive character development, intense suspense, side-splitting humor,
and unparallelled violence. And he does this in every book he writes.”
