I am finally free to share the news that my new novel for the Descent, Legends of the Dark line will be available next summer through Aconythe Books. It’s called Dreams of Fire, and it’s gonna be hot.
We’ve got dwarves, we got orcs (but not your father’s old orcs), we’ve got necromancy and rock-magic, we’ve got swordsmen-poets and more dragons you can shake a stick at. And volcanoes. It’s going to be a blast.
Humble Bundle teamed up with Aconyte Books (my publisher!) to offer a big bundle of gaming-related fiction – horror from the Arkham Horror universe, fantasy from both The Descent and Legend of Five Rings, science fiction from Twilight Imperium and many others.
22 books for less than 20 bucks, and part of the money goes to Worldreader, a charity helping children getting into reading. The books are in pdf and epub format, DRM-free. It’s an excellent value for money offer, and you do some good too.
The bundle includes The Devourer Below, the Arkham Horror collection that features my short story All my friends are monster, currently a finalist in the Scribe Awards.
Today I took a day off from the web. I shovelled some snow off the courtyard and then went with my brother for a supply run. In the next weeks, we will hole up in our house and crawl under a stack of blankets.
And while I was away from my PC, the news dropped about the Summer of 2022 release schedule from Aconyte Books … and lo and behold, there is my name on the list!
I am therefore happy to announce that next year my novel The Raiders of Bloodwood will be released by Aconyte, as part of their line of novels supporting the Descent, Legends of the Dark tabletop game.
The novel is a sprawling high fantasy romp, featuring a mismatched band of common people that will find themselves in a tight spot, and will have to learn to be heroes. It is going to be fun.
I am very proud of being part of the Aconyte team, and I am very happy with the opportunity they gave me to write a big fat novel filled with monsters, escapes, battles, magic and strangeness.
And here is the cover, by the excellent Asur Misoa.
