ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

Pat Kelleher
is a freelance writer. He has written for magazines, animation and radio. He served his time writing for a wide variety of TV licensed characters, translating them into audio books, novels and comics. Yes, he’s written for that. And that. And even, you know, them. He has several non-fiction books to his credit and his educational strips and stories for the RSPB currently form the mainstays of their Youth publications. Somehow he has steadfastly managed to avoid all those careers and part-time jobs that look so good on a dust jacket.

Five years ago, it all went wrong for Cason Cole. He lost his wife and son, lost everything, and was bound into service to a man who chews up human lives and spits them out, a predator who holds nothing dear and respects no law. Now, as the man he both loves and hates lies dying at his feet, the sounds of the explosion still ringing in his ears, Cason is finally free.

 

The gods and goddesses are real. A many-headed pantheon—a tangle of divine hierarchies—once kept the world at arm’s length, warring with one another for mankind’s belief and devotion. It was a grim and bloody balance, but a balance just the same. When one god triumphed, driving all other gods out of Heaven, it was back to the bad old days: cults and sycophants, and the terrible retribution the gods visit on those who spite them.

 

None of which is going to stop Cason from getting back what’s his...

 

‘If you’re looking for a sassy, hard-boiled thriller with a paranormal slant, Wendig has established himself as the go-to man.’

The Guardian

 

‘Exactly the kind of spin I was looking for. Bad asses, psychotic cannibals, religious fundamentalists, zombies and insane clowns... Wendig has created a zombie-infested world that you will enjoy spending time in.’

BLOODY BUG-EYED BOSCHE!

 

On November 1st, 1916, nine-hundred men of the 13th Battalion of The Pennine Fusiliers vanished without trace from the battlefield, only to find themselves stranded on an alien planet. There they must learn to survive in a frightening and hostile environment, forced to rely on dwindling supplies of ammo and rations as the natives of this strange new world begin to take an interest. However, the aliens amongst them are only the first of their worries, as a sinister and arcane threat begins to take hold from within their own ranks!

THE IRON GOD!

 

Three months after the Pennine Fusiliers vanished from the Somme and found themselves stranded on an alien world, Corporal ‘Only’ Atkins and his Black Hang Gang are sent to track down the HMLS Ivanhoe, the Battalion’s tank, currently exploring the wilderness and days overdue. The encampment is coming under attack by the alien Khungarrii, and the tank may be their only hope for a decisive victory.

 

Fighting for their lives against the mounting horrors of No Man’s World, Atkins and his men - and their alien prisoner - uncover an abandoned edifice, and a terrible secret. They must bring their discovery, and the tank, back to the base, but their only hope for survival - and a way home - lie in the psychotropic fuel-addicted crew of the Ivanhoe... and its increasingly insane commander!

KNIGHTS OF THE AIR!

 

Four months after the Pennine Fusiliers vanished from the Somme, they are still stranded on the alien world. As Lieutenant Everson tries to discover the true intentions of their alien prisoner, he finds he must quell the unrest within his own ranks while helping foment insurrection among the alien Khungarrii.

 

Beyond the trenches, Lance Corporal Atkins and his Black Hand Gang are reunited with the ironclad tank, Ivanhoe, and its crew. On the trail of Jeffries, the diabolist they hold responsible for their predicament, they are forced to face the obscene horrors that lie within the massive Croatoan Crater. Above it all, Lieutenant Tulliver of the Royal Flying Corps soars free of the confines of alien gravity, where the true scale of the planet’s mystery is revealed. However, to uncover the truth, he must join forces with an unexpected ally.

 

'What a story it is! The outcome blazes with action and suspense as Atkins and men take on the absolute worst that their new home can throw at them. Bring on
The Alleyman
