Kevin J. Anderson has more than 140 published books, 56 of which have been national or international bestsellers. He has written numerous novels in the Star Wars, X-Files, and Dune universes, as well as steampunk fantasy novels Clockwork Angels and Clockwork Lives, written with legendary rock drummer Neil Peart, based on the concept album by the band Rush. His original works include the Saga of Seven Suns series, the Terra Incognita fantasy trilogy, the Saga of Shadows trilogy, and his humorous horror series featuring Dan Shamble, Zombie PI. He has edited numerous anthologies, written comics and games, and penned the lyrics to two rock CDs. Anderson and his wife Rebecca Moesta are the publishers of WordFire Press.
i write. i make up stuff. i adventure hard, so you don’t have to.
In 2010, Rebecca and I launched WordFire Press as just a small company primarily to reissue some of my old out-of-print novels as eBooks, which were just starting to become popular. When that went well, some of my author friends asked if we would do the same with their backlist books, and our catalog really started to grow. We got some of Frank Herbert’s classic novels, the political masterpieces by Allen Drury, then books by Tracy Hickman, Mike Resnick, Jody Lynn Nye, Mike Stackpole, Todd McCaffrey, and others. Alan Dean Foster gave us a new novel, and we started doing works by newer authors as well.
We are the eBook publisher of both Clockwork Angels and Clockwork Lives, my steampunk fantasy adventures written with Neil Peart from Rush. And when Kensington decided they didn’t want to publish a collection of my Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. short stories, we decided to do it through WordFire, and we are reissuing ALL of the Dan Shamble books under our imprint.
StoryBundle offered us a way to spotlight some of our books with this Super Spotlight, 17 different titles that highlight our range of titles and authors. You can get all 17 books for a minimum price of $15—but feel free to pay what you feel they’re worth. The bundle only runs Dec 6-28.
A part of the proceeds will go directly to the worthy Be a Santa nonprofit run by our dear friend Patricia Tallman (from Babylon 5 and Night of the Living Dead). Thanks for helping to support our small publishing company. Our authors sure appreciate it!
I put in my own DEATH WARMED OVER, the first novel in my Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. series. I hope you find it hilarious! There’s also the fun and exciting MONSTERLAND, by Michael Okon, the Goonies meets Jurassic Park with monsters. And JB Garner has INDOMITABLE, the first in his entertaining superhero trilogy.
If you like unusual detectives who *aren’t* zombies, there’s Brooks Wachtel’s beautifully illustrated and innovative LADY SHERLOCK and David Boop’s noir SHE MURDERED ME WITH SCIENCE. Or maybe you prefer werewolves with PTSD? Then try Julie Frost’s PACK DYNAMICS. In other Fantasy and Urban Fantasy, there’s GRIFFIN’S FEATHER by J.T. Evans and FIRST CHOSEN by Todd Gallowglas. DEATH WIND by Travis Heerman and Jim Pinto is a weird western horror novel, while Mike Baron’s BANSHEES proves that death doesn’t have to put an end to sex, drugs, and rock & roll.
If you want a lot of short stories, we have two anthologies, A FANTASTIC HOLIDAY SEASONS, with everything from zombies for Thanksgiving to aliens at Christmas: perfect reading for this time of year. Award-winning Mike Resnick has AWAY GAMES, a collection of his stories about sports and science fiction. And MAXIMUM VELOCITY, science fiction adventure stories, the Best of Full Throttle Space Tales.
In the edgier, dark thriller category, Jeff Mariotte’s EMPTY ROOMS and Colum Sanson-Regan’s THE FLY GUY will keep you awake at night better than espresso at midnight. Aaron Michael Ritchey’s post-apocalyptic adventure DANDELION IRON is about a strong young woman trying to lead a cattle drive in the West after the fall of civilization. And THE CROWN AND THE DRAGON is a colorful epic fantasy with (as the title suggests) crowns and dragons, as well as a few swords and magic.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. We hope you’ll enjoy these books and check out some of our other titles at wordfirepress.com. Thanks for your support of our small publishing house, our authors, and the wonderful Be a Santa organization. Remember, the WordFire Press Super Showcase RUNS ONLY THROUGH DEC 28.
