If you haven't already, watch the announcement video here!
All the way to the end. You get to see an alien's twisted claw.
So anyway, The Captain, Book 1 of a new series I'm calling "The Last Horizon," is coming on April 4th! For those of you whose concept of time is as warped as mine, that's only a month away!
Here's the synopsis:
“To survive in this galaxy, you need a wand in one hand and a gun in the other.”
On a little-known planet, Archmage Varic Vallenar casts a grand spell to empower himself with the magical abilities of his alternate selves. The ritual works too well, granting Varic not only the magic but also the memories from six lives.
Including their gruesome deaths.
Now, Varic has power greater than any wizard in galactic history, but he knows that won’t be enough. The enemies he faced in those alternate lives were apocalyptic in scale. Terrors of technology and magic. Nothing that he, or anyone, can defeat.
Sun-eating extra-dimensional insects, shadowy secret organizations, genetically enhanced alien super-soldiers, ruthless megacorporations, and hordes of cyborg undead all lurk in the darkest corners of the galaxy, and Varic knows that any of them can become a world-ending threat at any moment.
All these are beyond any wizard, no matter how many spells he’s mastered or how many interstellar warships he’s rallied to his cause. Hopeless, Varic finds himself trying to preserve what little he can from the coming doom.
Until he hears rumors of a mythical starship, an invincible vessel of heroes made to do battle against galactic threats.
A ship called The Last Horizon.
The pre-order begins on March 21st! So, if you're American, we blast off on 3/21!
If you count your dates 21/3, then that cute little coincidence will mean nothing to you.
As always, this will be a simultaneous release in ALL FORMATS, so ebook, paperback, and audiobook.
Whenever I say this, people still ask me about the audiobook, so I'm going to preemptively say it again: the audiobook will be coming out on the same day!
We always do it that way because we love you all and because spoilers cause chaos and suffering.
More importantly, Travis Baldree will be narrating (I mean, who else would we get?).
Another cool thing: ComicBook.com did an interview with me a few days ago that they released today!
I thought that was pretty neat. Look, Ma, I'm on a real website!
I posted the cover art everywhere BUT here, because I don't want this already-long blog to take up the entire page, but we had a great time working with the artist: Simon Carr, a veteran with a ton of fantasy covers under his belt.
And that's about all I have to announce! I hope you all enjoy The Captain, and I look forward to seeing you on the bridge of The Last Horizon!
P.S. Waybound June 6th
