Douglas Thompson at the Inverness Book Festival @ La Scala Cinema
Aug 20 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Douglas ThompsonDouglas Thompson’s short stories have appeared in a wide range of magazines and anthologies. His first book, Ultrameta, was published by Eibonvale Press in August 2009, nominated for the Edge Hill Prize and shortlisted for the British Fantasy Society Best Newcomer Award. Since then he has published four subsequent novels. The Brahan Seer is his sixth novel.

Executed at Chanonry Point, Fortrose, for witchcraft in the late 17th century, the shadowy historical figure of the Brahan Seer foretold the Battle of Culloden, the invention of the railways and canals, the Second World War and even the creation of the Channel Tunnel. Described by Thompson himself as a historical literary novel (with supernatural overtones) this fascinating book begins to question whether our current understanding of time is quite as safe and scientifically sound as we think it is…

As part of the Inverness Book Festival 2014, Douglas will be interviewed by Inverness based journalist and broadcaster Roddy Maclean

Volume 1: Seventh Child

September Weekes discovers a stone that takes her to Gwlad, where she is hailed as the one with the power to defend them against the evil known as the Malevolence. September meets the people’s leader, the Mordeyrn Aurddolen, and the bearers of the seven metals linked to the seven ‘planets’ that give them special powers to resist the elemental manifestations of the Malevolence. She returns home, but a fortnight later, is drawn back to find that two years have passed and there have been more attacks. She must help defend Gwlad against the Malevolence.

Volume 2: The Power of Seven

Having reached Arsyllfa, September is re-united with the Mordeyrn Aurddolen with whom, together with the other senior metal bearers that make up the Council of Gwlad, she must plan the defence of the Land.

The time of the next Conjunction will soon be at hand. The planets, the Sun and the Moon will all be together in the sky. At that point the protection of the heavenly bodies will be at its weakest and Gwlad will be more dependent than ever on September. But now it seems that she must defeat Malice, the guiding force behind the Malevolence, if she is to save the Land and all its people. Will she be strong enough; and, if not, to whom can she turn for help?

Seventh Child was published in a digital edition on 2nd January 2015 and The Power of Seven on 30th January 2015 – they will be launched in paperback together at Dysprosium.

Mandigo and the Hellhounds launch party at FantasyCon @ FantasyCon by the Sea

While we’re at FantasyCon we will be having a launch party for our two latest fantasy titles.

Mandigo and the Hellhounds, by Anders Reemark, is the book in the Mandigo trilogy. Translated from the Danish by Nina Sokol it is a classic epic fantasy story, suitable for younger readers but just as gripping for older readers.

When he was eight, Mandigo found a baby on a raft in the river and carried her to Greta, the wise woman who lived in the forest. By the time he was twelve, Greta had taught him some magic, but an evil force was looking for the baby and Greta decided to leave for the baby’s safety. Mandigo would have liked to go with her but his world is suddenly turned upside down with the arrival of a fearsome knight accompanied by a pack of Hellhounds…

The launch party is in the Harbourlights Restaurant in the Grand Hotel from 12-1pm on Saturday. If you’re coming to FantasyCon, please join us at the party.
