The Lazarus War & The Eternity War: suggested reading order

I’ve had a few emails lately from readers asking about the order in which they should read my books, so I thought I’d do a blogpost on the topic. I now have two book series on general release, with another book due later this year, and several foreign language versions available, so things are bound…

As the year draws to a close, lots of us are probably reflecting on our favourite books of the year. I’m doing just the same, while trying to cram in another few reads before we close on 2017. Earlier this year, I reported Liz Loves Books was kind enough to give me one of my…

Some breaking news to share with you all today – my next book, PARIAH, will be released this September! My publisher, Orbit Books, has a great write-up on the release.

Unsung Stories Live: 21st February 2017

Have you heard of Unsung Stories? They’re a small press, publishing literary and speculative fiction in the fields of science fiction, fantasy, horror and beyond.

A week on from the release of ORIGINS – the final part of THE LAZARUS WAR trilogy – and I’m still struggling to accept that I now have three books published! I’ve been moved on by the staff of various Waterstones up and down the country for staring vacantly at the shelf where my books…

Nine Worlds Convention: after action report

This weekend marked a major event in the SFF calendar: the Nine Worlds Convention! Actually, the SFF-fest that was this weekend started early. Goldsboro Books hosts an annual party to celebrate science fiction and fantasy, called Fantasy in the Court, which I attended on Thursday 11th August.

LAZARUS WAR: ORIGINS released next month

Mission accomplished. Objective secured. Target neutralised. That’s right, people: I’ve just received an advance paperback copy of THE LAZARUS WAR: ORIGINS…   I’m very pleased with the cover. Orbit went for a really bright green, which is very appropriate for the story. While the previous two books look great, ORIGINS really pops. Here’s a close…
