It’s oh so quiet…

It's quiet. Too quiet

Well, yes. There’s not been a lot of content around here for some time. While that might give the impression that nothing much is happening, pretty much the opposite is actually the case. The lack of posts here is a symptom of being very busy with my current projects, some of which are complete, some running behind schedule, and some barely out of the blocks. This is all very exciting for me, of course, but it does leave very little time for anything else.

So, what’s been happening? Well, I’m now over half-way through Wrath of Iron, my Iron Hands book. This is part of the Space Marine Battles series, so expect lots of things being blown-up, thrown around and generally getting broken. In between all that planet-sized carnage I’ve tried to delve a little deeper into the Iron Hands psyche too, and I’ll post at greater length about that once the novel’s written. Space Marines are tricky things to write about, and the Iron Hands are about as tricky as they come. I hope long-time fans will like my take on them, although you’ll have to wait until July next year to find out what’s in the book. A couple of little factoids in the meantime: the protagonists are from Clan Raukaan, and the story features two characters who first emerged in my short story ‘Flesh’ (which can be found here).

Life on Medusa was rubbish

Otherwise, it’s been nice to see my novella Dragonmage get some positive press. Graham’s Fantasy Book Review covered it a while back, and you can read the review here. More surprisingly perhaps, the august British Fantasy Society seems to be reviewing Black Library books at the moment, and they’ve posted a write-up for Sword of Justice on their website. Always good to see mainstream Fantasy sites taking a look at some licensed fiction.

Anyway, right now I’m trying to get Wrath of Iron in the bag before the Christmas break, which would be very nice, sanity-wise. After that, who knows? I have a suspicion I’ll be writing some High Elves in 2012, as well as some Space Marines, both from a Chapter I’ve written about before and possibly from one I haven’t. All very vague, but I’ll post more here once stuff is confirmed.

In the meantime, I should mention that I’ll be at the marvellous SFX Weekender on the 2-4 February along with some other BL authors, so come along to that if you fancy getting your hands on Luthor Huss before anyone else.

    Glad to hear your keeping your nose to the grindstone, as I am looking forward to your books.

    I must admit that I am coming to the blog earlier than my normal monthly catch up of your blogs (which is convenient as you’ve just posted) with an ulterior motive. An acquaintance of mine runs a comic book shop in my hometown of Melksham, Wiltshire and is setting up a comic-con next year (May the 26th) and is trying to organise folk to come to the event and what not. I was thinking as you are (read were last time I checked) based in the South West of England and have form with Warhammer and Stargate tie in fiction if you’d be OK if I pointed her towards you as a potential person of interest.

    Hello Mr. Wraight. I’m very much looking forward to your Iron Hands novel. I also hope you revisit the Space Wolves as I really enjoyed Battle of the Fang.

    Do you plan on writing anymore Space Wolves books?
    Have you thought about writing about Ragnar Blackmane for the Black Library as his saga needs finishing?

    It WAS quiet until you started talking.
