Andy West has a new story out...

NSFWG member Andy West has a story in just-released anthology “Matters Most Extraordinary: Superheroes Throughout History”. It can be downloaded as a PDF from this link - it’s free and very good quality.

The publisher is quite new to the market, so any feedback to the website would be welcome and the book has a good cross-section of author experience (from brand new to published novelists).

Why not check it out?

City Of Hope & Despair, by Ian Whates

Congratulations are due to Ian Whates, whose novel City of Hope & Despair hits the shelves today from those good folk at Angry Robot.

The ancient city of Thaiburley is a vast, multi-tiered metropolis, where the poor live in the City Below, and Demons are said to dwell in the Upper Heights.
The street-nick Tom must find the source of the great river Thair and perhaps learn the secret of his own strange powers…
The assassin Dewar must redeem himself…
The Prime Master desperately seeks the cure for bone flu – a mysterious and deadly malady that is striking down the talented in Thaiburley’s highest Rows…
Kat, the renegade nick, forms an uneasy alliance with her sister Charveve, and the two lead the Tattooed Men through the dark streets of the City Below in search of the Soul Thief: the evil monster that murdered their mother and consigned both girls to the gladitorial hellhole known as the Pits…
Welcome back to Thaiburley, the City of 100 Rows, the City of Dreams… where the nightmare has only just begun…

Available from Amazon (on this link) and all good bookshops, online and brick & mortar!
