Conan – Cult of the Obsidian Moon

I am over the moon (pun sort of intended) to be able to announce that I’m writing a Conan novel for Titan Books and Heroic Signatures.

This is a childhood dream come true. When I was eleven or twelve, my grandmother gave me a book token which I promptly blew on the first six Sphere paperbacks of Conan’s adventures (you know, with the Frank Frazetta cover paintings). I was hooked, and I’ve been a happy Conan fan, and more broadly Robert E Howard fan, ever since. When offered the chance to write some of the Cimmerian’s adventures myself, I jumped at it.

This book, which I’m currently working on, forms part of the remarkable Black Stone event that super-scribe Jim Zub and his artistic allies are unfurling in the Conan the Barbarian series of comics from Titan. Knowledge of that storyline will give readers of this novel some nice Easter eggs but is not essential. I can promise you there is plenty of swordplay, sorcerous doings, and bloodletting, along with loathsome winged monsters.

I believe I’m the first British author to write new prose tales set in the Hyborian Age, and I’m very much hoping that this is just the start of more to come.
