James Maxey Announcement

You all remember James Maxey and his Bitterwood series, don't you? Dragons, action, fantasy adventures... Well, we're pleased to announce that we'll now be publishing James Maxey's Dragon Apocalypse series!

The first book, Greatshadow, will be published in February next year, with the second book, Hush, coming out in July of that year, and the final instalment in the trilogy, Sorrow, following in spring 2013.

James Maxey said:

“Greatshadow is my most ambitious work to date, simultaneously an epic dragon hunt, a heist novel, a ghost story, and a love story, all blended with a bit of the comic-book inspired action I love. After I met Jonathan Oliver at World Fantasy last year I realised he was the perfect editor to help bring my vision into print.”

No Dragon Apocalypse covers to show you yet, so here's a picture of the glorious lizard-like covers from his Bitterwood series. The dragon is watching you...

Editor-in-Chief, Jonathan Oliver said:

“It’s a delight to welcome back James to the Solaris fold. I was a big fan of his Bitterwood series of fantasy novels and it’s great to see more from this talented writer. James has to be one of the most innovative and entertaining writers of dragon fantasy around.”

Maya Lassiter has interviewed James Maxey at her blog. You can also still see her earlier interview with James's fellow Solaris author Gareth L Powell.
