The UK paperback edition of The Legion of Flame (Book 2 of the Draconis Memoria) will be released by Orbit on 1st February. To celebrate I’m giving away five signed copies of the paperback to existing mailing list subscribers and anyone who joins the list between now and midnight GMT on 31st January. The giveaway is open to all subscribers, not just readers in the UK. Join the list by clicking here.
The winners will be chosen at random and notified on 1st February.
Also, Goodreads users please note that I won’t be using that site for giveaways in future since they started charging authors for it. It’s possible my publisher will still use Goodreads for giveaways of unsigned books – if they do I’ll be sure to announce it here. So, from now on if you want to have a chance of winning a signed book from me you need to join the mailing list.
The US paperback edition will be released on June 26th – I’ll be doing another giveaway two weeks prior to release. Pre-order here: Amazon.com
I’m happy to report that The Waking Fire (Book One of the Draconis Memoria) has been chosen by amazon.co.uk as part of their ’12 days of Kindle’ promotion. This means that from now until 3rd January 2018 the kindle version will be available at £1.99.

Sorry Americans and other non-Brits, but this is a UK only promotion.
I’m pleased to announce that at long last my sci-fi noir series Slab City Blues: The Collected Stories is now available in audiobook, read by Steven Brand. The collection also has a brand new cover, illustrated by Kevin Goeke (see more of his work at movco-art.com) with cover design by Shawn King (www.stkkreations.com).
The audiobook should also appear on iTunes in the next few days if you prefer to buy your stuff from the Apple-verse.
Gangs, killers, and vampires. One war-torn detective is the only hope of survival for a crime-ridden orbiting city…
Blade Runner meets Se7en in this gritty five-story collection from New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Anthony Ryan.
Alex McLeod paid dearly during the war for independence from Earth. It left the detective disfigured, jaded, and alone. In the aftermath of victory, Alex seethes as criminal factions and cold-blooded killers clash over control of the newly-liberated confederation. In his crusade for justice in the free states, he’s willing to break more than a few rules along the way…
The only home Alex knows is the slums of Slab, an orbiting city teeming with lowlifes, back-stabbers, and gene-spliced monstrosities. From the grimy streets of his city to the lawless Asteroid Belt, Alex goes toe-to-toe with a sharp-clawed vigilante, a mythical serial killer, and a gorgeous vampire with an ominous message. His quest won’t end until his homeland earns the freedom it was promised…
But even Alex may not be able to stop the impending Reckoning and a voyage to the one place he swore he’d never return: Earth…
Slab City Blues: The Collected Stories contains four exciting novellas and one sensational novel set in a world of hard-boiled sci-fi and cyberpunk. If you like hard-nosed detectives, futuristic planets, and pulse-pounding action, then you’ll love Anthony Ryan’s world of vampires, werewolves, and space.
Good news everyone. Ebook pre-orders are now live for The Empire of Ashes (Draconis Memoria Book 3). For some reason it hasn’t appeared on Kobo yet – I’ll update the book page when it does.
