Today we’re wishing a very happy book birthday to our gorgeous US edition of The Black Coast by Mike Brooks!
Epic world-building at its finest, in an upcoming author’s fantasy debut. The Black Coast is the start of an unmissable series filled with war-dragons, armoured knights, sea-faring raiders, dangerous magic and crowd-pleasing battle scenes.
War Dragons. Fearsome Raiders. A Daemonic Warlord on the Rise.
When the citizens of Black Keep see ships on the horizon, terror takes them because they know who is coming: for generations, the keep has been raided by the fearsome clanspeople of Tjakorsha. Saddling their war dragons, Black Keep’s warriors rush to defend their home only to discover that the clanspeople have not come to pillage at all. Driven from their own land by a daemonic despot who prophesises the end of the world, the raiders come in search of a new home . . .
Meanwhile the wider continent of Narida is lurching toward war. Black Keep is about to be caught in the crossfire – if only its new mismatched society can survive.
“Any fan of epic fantasy will find something to love here.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
“The Black Coast has excellent characters and wonderful world-building, with a wealth of interesting cultural collisions. I’m already excited for the next one!” — Django Wexler, author of The Shadow Campaigns series.
Nobody remembers how the Causality War started. Really, there’s no-one to remember, and nothing for them to remember if there were; that’s sort of the point. We were time warriors, and we broke time.
I was the one who ended it. Ended the fighting, tidied up the damage as much as I could.
Then I came here, to the end of it all, and gave myself a mission: to never let it happen again.
“This time-looped dramedy is as funny as it is thought-provoking.” Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Playing deft games with time, this wryly funny short novel from the author of Children of Time focuses on a war that nobody remembers fighting and a time warrior determined to prevent history from repeating itself.” Waterstones review

We’re very excited to be wishing our handsome new reissue of Spec Ops Z by Gavin G. Smith a very happy book birthday! The reissue is a fantastic opportunity for readers to discover, or re-discover, this high-octane world and get to know its Spetznaz squad!
When Vadim Scorlenski and his elite Spetznaz squad are sent to New York at the height of the Cold War, they’re told it’s a ‘training exercise.’ They discover, too late, that the ‘practice’ chemical weapon they’re carrying is all too real. They go to their deaths…
…and awaken to a city overwhelmed by the walking dead, even now spreading across the globe. Somehow holding onto their identities amid the mindless monsters, Scorlenski and his squad of zombie commandos set out to return to Russia.
Someone’s going to pay.
A handsome new re-issue of a high-octane military-SF, as Russian Spetsnaz commandos are turned into zombies in ’80s New York.
“High octane SF adventure with Smith’s trademark twist” — Jamie Sawyer on The Bastard Legion
“An exceptional talent” – Peter F Hamilton
“Pure, unapologetic, full-throttle, action packed awesomeness… Obviously, the author had too much fun.” — The Bookbeard on Spec Ops Z
