My Top Ten Memories

(At least - those I'm willing to share)

If YOU would like to find out why I have a penchant for getting naked in the wrong places - why my mother is a secret cannabis cultivator - and why I know without a doubt I can't get high on opiates, you might like to stop by this latest interview I completed with

Princess of Light

It really is shockingly revealing


Also in the news this week

This is the preliminary cover art for the forthcoming Heroes in Hell anthology due for release this Fall - Yes, you've guessed it - Pirates in Hell.

I'm proud to say, one of Daemon Grim's adventures - Pieces of Hate - will be featured within, along with a treasure chest full of similar literary gems from a selection of other contributors.
So stay tuned for more details.

Why Consider the IX Series?

The IX Series continues to rage from strength to strength.
Some of you might be wondering what all the fuss is about?

Take a look at some of these critical reviews from the leading lights of speculative fiction and discover for yourself why you might like to discover the world of the Ninth Legion:

And from others:

Weston knows how to keep the reader on the edge of the seat without feeling as though the mission will never end. This is a complex combination of history, imagination & science fiction magic as is available today.
Grady Harp: Hall of Fame/Top 100 /Vine Reviewer

A brilliant & amazing synthesis of military, horror and far-future science fiction.
Nebula Award Winner Michael A. Armstrong

The IX is the most inventive science fiction novel I have read since "Stranger in a Strange Land". That's saying a lot. The plot is highly complicated, and yet so clearly and gracefully written that it is easy to follow. The ending is wildly inventive and too brilliant to give away. Suffice it to say I ended the book with tears in my eyes.

Come and join the IX on their epic adventure, and discover why there really is no choice, other than to...

Ticking Along

This last week has been quite busy:

Into the final chapters of Prelude to Sorrow - the conclusion to the IX's journey.

Had a great couple of reminders from the team over at Black Gate.
Their Top April Posts reveal how well The IX Series & Hell Bound are still doing among their discerning readers.

(Check out the lists)

(Of note - is how strongly a number of other Perseid Press articles feature)
So Well Done to the team.

And I enjoyed a most excellent day with Princess of Light where they asked me for details about my all time Top 10 picks for films over the last (X) decades (Hee hee)


And Don't forget...

Pirates in Hell is Coming

Latest Responses to the IX Series

I'd like to share some pretty encouraging responses to both The IX and Exordium of Tears.

One - a review - came from Netgalley:
Very cool concept. Lots of action and battle sequences that are well done. Quite a few characters and all of them are fleshed out nicely. We get to know and care about every one of them and feel invested in their struggles. The story itself begins as a straight forward band of misfits all brought together to make a last stand against a formidable horde, but, evolves from that simple premise into something more unique and interesting. A few nice twists and turns as we barrel towards the finale make for a very rewarding finish and a heck of a fun book.

The other came from Princess of Light in a Book Spotlight:

All in all, an encouraging week - especially as both books of the series have been ranking well.

On a personal note:
I received my new Kindle - at last - and can get back to read & reviewing.
First on my new list is a book I've been waiting for:

The Golden Sword - Part II of the Silistra Quartet.

There's lots of great reading out there:
I know what I'll be doing next week. Do you?
