A Discourse in Steel now has a cover! This is the sequel to Paul S. Kemp’s The Hammer and the Blade, an original fantasy series with hilarious and compelling characters. Really great dialog in the first book, and I’m definitely looking forward to this one. You can pre-order your copy here.

Egil and Nix have retired, as they always said they would. No, really—they have! No more sword and hammer-play for them! But when two recent acquaintances come calling for help, our hapless heroes find themselves up against the might of the entire Thieves Guild. And when kidnapping the leader of the most powerful guild in the land seems like the best course of action, you know you’re in over your head….

A Discourse in Steel will be out on June 25 in paperback and digital formats.

Paul S. Kemp has posted an excerpt from his upcoming Egil and Nix novel A Discourse In Steel. Features some wonderful dialog from his colorful characters.

Paul S. Kemp: A bit of Egil and Nix from A DISCOURSE IN STEEL, the follow up to THE HAMMER AND THE BLADE. Unedited, of course. Forgive any awkwardness or typos.

“Smells like wet dog,” Nix said, just to say something.

“Bah,” Egil said, and raised his hammers as if he could smite the offending stink with them. “It smells like a diseased dog that bathed in the Deadmire and then rolled in its own shite. I’d breathe deep the smell of a merely wet dog.” Continue Reading New ‘A Discourse In Steel’ Excerpt…

Good news for The Hammer and Blade fans, Angry Robot Books has signed author Paul S. Kemp for a third Egil and Nix novel! Here’s the press release.

Angry Robot is delighted to announce that, due to the immense popularity of Paul S. Kemp‘s The Hammer and the Blade – the first in his Tales of Egil and Nix series of sword and sorcery fantasy adventure novels – we have signed Paul up to write a third book starring our favourite tomb robbers.

Tentatively titled A Conversation in Blood, the book is scheduled for Summer 2014. To sate readers’ appetites for more great sword and sorcery action, the second in the series,A Discourse in Steel, will be published in June of next year.

Find out more about Paul S. Kemp, who also writes for the Star Wars and Forgotten Realmsuniverses, at his website: www.paulskemp.com and follow him on Twitter @PaulSKemp.

Paul S. Kemp: “I don’t know about you, but my pink parts are all tingly! Wait, is that too much information? Uh, sorry. So, anyway, continuing my relationship with the metallic overlords? Check. Writing more stories in the sword and sorcery sub-genre I love? Double check. The long and short of it? I’m smiling. Hugely. I’ve had so much fun writing about Egil and Nix, and have had such positive feedback from readers who’ve had a blast, too, that I’m just delighted to have the opportunity to write more of their adventures. Huzzah!”

Angry Robot Editor Lee Harris added: “The Hammer and the Blade has proven to be one of our most popular titles of 2012, so it was an easy decision to ask Paul to write more in that world. Sword and Sorcery is alive and well and living in Paul S Kemp’s brilliant Tales of Egil and Nixseries.”

The third book in the Tales of Egil and Nix is tentatively titled A Conversation in Blood and slated for a Summer 2014 release. The second novel in the series, A Discourse in Steel, is now scheduled for a June 2013 release.

Paul S. Kemp whose next Egil and Nix story A Discourse in Steel is now available for pre-order on Amazon.

FANgirlblog for their interview with Darth Internous who many will know from the Star Wars Books Facebook page.  Darth Internous aka Tom Hoeler gave some interesting insight on what it’s like to work for Del Rey and with the Star Wars Books team. Definitely worth checking out.

The Rumor that Matt Stover is taking over for Karen Traviss with Imperial Commando.  We still don’t know if it’s true because it hasn’t been confirmed or denied.  But it sure provided some entertaining WTF moments out there in fandom.

New Paul S. Kemp book revealed The Hammer and the Blade (non-Star Wars)

Angry Robot Books has announced that author Paul S. Kemp (Crosscurrent, Deceived, Riptide) will be writing a new book entitled The Hammer and the Blade – a Tale of Egil & Nix. The book will be published in July 2012 by Angry Robot Books (a part of Osprey Publishing).

The Hammer and the Blade will introduce you to Egil and Nix, a pair of down-at-heel treasure hunters and incorrigible rogues. Egil is a priest, happy to deliver moral correction with his pair of massive hammers. Nix is a sneak-thief; there’s no lock he cannot open, no serving girl he cannot charm. Between them, they always have one eye for a chance to make money – the other eye, of course, is on the door. Only this time, the treasure they’ve thieved is an important relic of a most sinister and ancient family, who will stop at nothing to get their bloody revenge.

And there’s already a sequel planned! (A Discourse of Steel) You can check out Angry Robot Books website for more information on the announcement. Personally I’m excited to see more Kemp books in the future. If this new series is on par with the Erevis Cale series, then readers will have plenty of good reading material coming there way.
