Cold Frame by P.T. Deutermann

P. T. Deutermann is an author I discovered while in Iraq and have liked ever since. In the book Cold Frame by P.T Deutermann we find Detective Sergeant Av Smith of the Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department is suddenly thrown into the world of Counterterrorism and the ominous Kill List. Av Smith is a likeable guy in this book, surrounded by the rest of the guys in the Briar Patch, a section of MPD designated to pass along federal cases to a federal force.

Author Margaret Morgan on Her Past And Mrs McKeiver’s Secrets.

Author Margaret Morgan was born in 1950. Her farm was two and a half miles from the village of Leintwardine in Herefordshire. Mrs McKeiver’s character entered her head when she first thought of a character to hold everything together in the Hills; her fictional area. I expect she is an amalgam of my mother and her two grandmothers. Coming from Yorkshire and Lincolnshire they were fearless, strong women.

Heresy-Online Fanfic Compendium

Heresy-Online member Boc has constructed a complete list, starting January 1st, 2010, of all authors who have posted their artfully crafted pieces of fiction in the Heresy-Online Original Works forum.
I’m very pleased that he’s done this as it saves me much trouble. lol  It had been an idea that had been thrown around the forum for a few years, but the numbers of authors just kept growing, so we didn’t do anything about it.

Long story short, a fellow member of Heresy-Online ‘Boc’ has taken the time and effort to put together an up-to-date compendium of the authors currently writing and posting on Heresy.

Rebloged from the Heresy News Network:

The all new Heresy-Online Fanfic Compendium has been completed and posted in the Original Works section of the forums.

Black Library News

A Universe of Adventure

Issue 3 Volume 1

Compiled by your humble servant Brother Czarny

New and Noteworthy

Bloodborn ($8.99) by Nathan Long launches a new line of vampire novels featuring Ulrika Magdova – newly formed Lahmian vampire, now residing in the Imperial city of Nuln. The former lover of Felix Jaeger must now help her mentor in discovering who is killing of the sisters of their order and how. Nathan promises that the combination of Ulrika, vampires and mystery will keep you under its spell.

Graham McNeill has a double header this month with the arrival of a new Ultramarines novel – The Chapter’s Due ($24.99) and the mass market edition of Courage and Honour ($8.99). Hot on his success from the novel A Thousand Sons, Graham turns up the Space Marine action as the Ultramarines and Uriel Ventris face off against his nemesis in Warsmith Honsou and the Iron Warriors.

In addition to the above books available to the book trade, The Black Library has a couple of new items available on the web. First up is the original audio drama Fireborn ($17.00), a Salamander Space Marine story penned by our own Mr Nick Kyme. It is 87 minutes of 40k audio action. As an added bonus the print-on-demand folks are making Dan Abnett’s tale of pirates and vampires in the Warhammer world – Fell Cargo (£13) – available to all ye maties.

Whispers from the Warp

A Thousand Sons continues on the SF charts – number 12 on the overall charts for ten weeks now for Mr. McNeill. Additionally, Aaron Dembski-Bowden has two books on the SF charts – Helsreach at number 26 and Soul Hunter and number 50.

On the D6Generation podcast, Total Fan Girl interviewed Eric Bloom of Blue Oyster Cult, who evidently is a gamer geek as well as musician and very fond of Warhammer Online. So much so that he wrote a theme song for his slayer character entitled “Kiss my Axe”, now available as a free download from the website.

Nathan Long will be doing book signings for the release of Bloodborn at several area bookstores. On May 22nd he will be at Emerald Knights Comics in Burbank, CA and on May 23rd Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego, CA.

BL TV has a report from our convention BL Live featuring James Swallow and Sandy Mitchell – interspersed with clips of the event and authors.

Looking Forward

All sorts of fun stuff are coming in next month including some great new cover treatments and great stories. To start off, Enforcer ($15) by Matt Farrer is an omnibus of three Shira Calpurnia books, plus a short story. Shira Calpurnia’s numerous investigations lead her along the trails of corruption behind assassination attempts, vicious greed over an ancient charter, as well as the usual assortment of psykers and murders you would expect to find in an imperial fortress system.

Path of the Warrior ($8.99) by Gav Thorpe is the first book in a series to follow an Eldar from the path of peace to that of a warrior. Becoming a Striking Scorpion, a deadly fighter skilled in close combat, he slowly moves down the path that may cause him to lose his identity and become an avatar of war.

Most importantly, there is the launch of a new range – Warhammer Heroes. Sword of Justice ($8.99) by Chris Wraight focuses on Ludwig Schwarzhelm, the Emperor’s Champion. Sent to Averland to oversee the inauguration of a new elector count he finds himself fighting orcs, chaos and rival magnates. In the end he must make choices that may influence the destiny of the Empire. This is also helped by the fact that the new Warhammer Fantasy rulebook is being released this month

We were a little early on this, but your old Uncle Ragnar is offering another POD golden oldies from yesteryear (really, we mean it this time) – Kill Squad: A Deathwatch Omnibus. This 576 page title is full of all great “stuff” about the Death Watch Space Marines that we’ve put out over the years. This includes novels by CS Goto, comics by Jim Alexander and a bunch of short stories.

Last Bits

Yes, the info from last month regarding Book Expo is still here, and we will keep reminding you until you all show up! So make sure you stop at the new pimped out Black Library booth #4046. In addition to the usual suspects from the Black Library, editor and author Nick Kyme will be released to the public. As usual come say hello – but don’t feed him after midnight!

BL Towers is giving us more information about our participation at US Games Day in Baltimore. So far, we can confirm – Mike Lee, Nathan Long, Clint Werner and two secret guests forthcoming. For those of you who are planning to stop by or would like to come circle the date – 21 August – on your calendar. We can promise two BIG UK authors and a slew of US authors making an appearance.
