Marcus

Marcus joined Gollancz as an Editor at the beginning of 2011, and is greatly enjoying the chance to work on the kind of books he’s always read. His shelves at home are groaning. Previously, he spent ten years as a bookseller for Blackwell’s, ending up as Sales Manager for their flagship London shop on Charing Cross Road. He lives with his partner, a historian and novelist, and their very small child, who is going to know more about SFF then anyone else at nursery. This may not be a good thing.

Heavy on the Viking influence, but with a pleasing spark of magic. The books got great reviews from fantasy authors such as James Barclay and Tom Lloyd, but also from historical fiction legends Conn Iggulden and Giles Kristian.

Today, … More

Fantasy, John Hornor Jacobs

Last week we published THE INCORRUPTIBLES, the first fantasy novel from Bram Stoker Award nominated John Hornor Jacobs. Our subscriber copies of SFX Magazine arrived yesterday and brought a nice surprise – a rare 5 Star review by David Bradley, the editor of SFX himself!

SFX said (among other nice things): “The Incorruptibles is a rare thing: a clever story and an action-packed one” and put a big ‘SFX Recommends’ badge by … More

Gollancz are thrilled to reveal the covers for two very different books coming later this year – EMPIRES: INFILTRATION and EMPIRES: EXTRACTION. Written by Gavin Deas (a cunning pseudonym for the writing team of GAVIN Smith and Stephen DEAS), the two books cover the same period of time from two different viewpoints.

Two alien races have fought a long and bitter war among the stars. And now their conflict has bought them to … More
