A big summer reads bundle

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.

Check it out, if you feel like. The offer is open for 20 days starting today.

A new story in a new book

The fine people at Aconyte Books have just announced their next Arkham Horror anthology, Secrets in Scarlet

A secret organization ruthlessly seeks power over supernatural terrors in this globe-trotting anthology of arcane mystery and adventure, from the bestselling world of Arkham Horror

… and there’s a story of mine in it!

At the moment I am not at liberty to divulge any further detail, but it will be here for Halloween, and it’s going to be… interesting.

Next summer, in Bloodwood

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.

More news as stuff hapens.
