On Zombies, Pax Britannia and more zombies

Hello All

First of all, apologies for the lack of posts of late. I have been in manuscript land for the last two weeks and have had very little time to do anything other than read and copy-edit. 
Anyway, talking of books I'm very pleased to be able to announce that we have commissioned another Tomes of The Dead title for 2009: Hungry Hearts by the very talented Gary McMahon.
I've been reading Gary's short work for a while now and his fiction has an intelligent fierceness that makes for very compelling reading. So, please welcome him to the Abaddon fold.

On the Pax Britannia front I can now reveal the cover for Evolution Expects, the fifth book in the series by Jonathan Green, due out April 2009 (US release date to be confirmed).

As for our current list, I suggest you go check out your local book stores for Tomes of The Dead: Anno Mortis by Rebecca Levene. This is a superb addition to our zombie range set in Ancient Rome. This title will be released February next year in the States.

That's all for now. 

Happy reading

Jonathan Oliver

Vote for Kerberos

Hi All

As you may be aware a new fantasy award is in the offing with the David Gemmell Legend Award, which both honors the memory of Gemmell himself while celebrating the best in new heroic fantasy.  And guess what? You can vote for both Shadowmage and The Clockwork King of Orl over at the site. We would be honored if you did. The choice is yours.
Many thanks for Gareth Wilson for setting this up for us.

More news soon on another great Tomes of The Dead novel coming your way in 2009.

Happy reading.

Facebook and a Face

People may not be aware that there is now an Abaddon Books group on facebook which all are welcome to join. Come, join us there to discuss and link with authors.
Talking of authors I can now reveal the visage of another Abaddon writer. This be Mike Wild, author of the excellent Twilight of Kerberos: The Clockwork King of Orl. Mike is currently working on the follow-up, The Crucible of The Dragon God.

On the Abaddon Newsletter

Hi All

This is just a quick note to say that we will be disbanding the e-mailed newsletter that some of you may have been receiving in favour of the Blog. This means that all news items will now appear here. Hopefully this will free up space for people and be a much preferred option. Do feel free to send in your feedback.

Best Wishes

Jonathan Oliver
