Next month we’re publishing a trio of terrific titles by three awesomely amazing authors and – in a slightly more timely fashion than the last batch – we’ve just uploaded excerpts from all three to our issuu.com page and added them to the relevant catalogue pages here on the website. But to save you having to go looking for them, here they all are!
The Alchemist of Souls
by Anne Lyle
Night’s Masque, vol I
When Tudor explorers returned from the New World, they brought back a name out of half-forgotten Viking legend: skraylings. Red-sailed ships followed in the explorers’ wake, bringing Native American goods – and a skrayling ambassador – to London. But what do these seemingly magical beings really want in Elizabeth I’s capital?
Mal Catlyn, a down-at-heel swordsman, is seconded to the ambassador’s bodyguard, but assassination attempts are the least of his problems. What he learns about the skraylings and their unholy powers could cost England her new ally – and Mal Catlyn his soul.
You can also download a PDF copy of the excerpt, if you prefer.

Richards & Klein, Volume II
The powerful artificial intelligence designated k52 has a plan to take over the world.
If it were to create an artificial reality based on our own universe it could theoretically gain enough data to be able to alter reality itself, turning k52 into the ultimate arbiter of mankind’s fate.
It’s down to Richards and Klein to stop k52 – even though the alternative could be worse!
Again, here’s the PDF version to download, if you’d rather.
Costume Not Included

To Hell and Back – Vol II
Chesney’s efforts to ‘Save the Day’ and ‘Win the Girl’ make slow progress. This superhero lark is a bit more complicated than he thought.
But even as Chesney is trying to learn the ropes, Boss Greeley has made a deal with the Devil. A deal that is making Greeley stronger by the minute. Soon he will be untouchable. Meanwhile Reverend Hardacre digs deeper and finds that not everything in reality is quite what it seems…
Now Chesney, the one-time actuary-turned superhero must continue the fight.
And one more time, the downloadable PDF, for those who want one.
