Legacy of Steel Cover Reveal

For those that haven’t already seen courtesy of the good folks over at ScifiNow, the cover of Legacy of Steel – the second installment in the Legacy Trilogy – has finally been sighted out in the wild and… it’s another beauty. (Seriously, I’ve been hugely fortunate with my cover art for this series.) As with […]

What’s in the Cards?

Today, we’re going to do some a little bit different. I’m actually slightly ahead of where I want to be with my Work in Progress (Book 3 of the Legacy Trilogy, if you’re interested), so I’ve decided to have a bit of a play. Over the years, I’ve played a lot of the Magic the […]

Talking Tolkien: Heroism

–This is an unrolled, minimally-edited version of my occasional Twitter Threads. You can find others by searching the #TalkingTolkien hashtag over there, or by following me @thetowerofstars.– I’d like to talk about The Lord of the Rings – specifically something that rubbed me wrong about the transition between book & film.

Writing Heroes – Bernard Cornwell

Sean Bean’s only significant role that doesn’t see him dead before the end credits roll. Chosen Men! and more Yorkshire-inflected utterance […]

Legacies Unbound

Right, I don’t blog much. Don’t blog at all, really, for the last couple of years. But I’m going to make a bit more of an effort. We’ll see how it shakes out.

Today, I’m going to talk a little about Legacy of Ash.

Writing Heroes: Terrance Dicks

Terrance Dicks is one of those men who will never, ever, be celebrated enough. A hugely prolific writer, he’ll mostly be remembered for his many contributions to classic Doctor Who, both on screen and off (though he did a great deal more).

It’s the End of the World (Again)

This past week has seen Vermintide 2 rush out of the gloom of Beta and into the eerie Morrslieb-light of full PC release. Five heroes stand between the Reikland and utter destruction at the hands of rapacious skaven and unstoppable Chaos-worshippers. Thirteen levels of brutal, fast-paced first-person melee combat. Fifteen careers to follow. Over fifty […]
