The Hooded Man shall return

Hello Folkses

Another missive from Abaddon HQ for you. Mainly to tell you that I have recently commissioned Paul Kane to write a sequel to The Afterblight Chronicles: Arrowhead called Broken Arrow. This will follow the adventures of Robert and his entourage from the first novel and expands on the already intriguing world that Paul has created. The release date is still to be confirmed so watch this space for more news. In the meantime, if you haven't already, I strongly urge you to check out Arrowhead. It's already been garnering much praise, with Death Ray calling it "huge fun."
Meanwhile we've been busy putting the finishing touches to the latest volume in the Pax Britannia series, Jonathan Green's Human Nature. Expect more swashbuckling and steam-punk styled horror and intrigue from the pen of Pax Britannia's creator. Plus, as an added bonus, Human Nature, will include the short story "Christmas Past", specially commissioned for this volume. 
2009's titles are already shaping up nicely, with 12 titles already commissioned. Yus, that's four more than this year! We're upping the Abaddon goodness for you people. So expect 3 books in each series, instead of 2 plus more from the Twilight of Kerberos series, expanding on this vast sword and sorcery world and introducing a new character to the mix.
In the meantime, as we approach this festive season, why not spend the long winter nights perusing one of our fine titles? Or, they make perfect gifts for loved ones.

Anyhew, until next time.

Happy reading
