That’s right folks. The KHAOS audiobook is finally available! If that’s why you’re here, go ahead and order it now! But keep reading, because I’ve also just released a SECRET BOOK that no one knew I was making.
“Whhhhaaaaa?” you say. “Who makes a book in secret and then releases it just a few weeks before Christmas when it’s questionable it will arrive in time?!”
Me, fool! That’s who! Just scroll down and behold.
Okay, back to business and KHAOS. The Audiobook has been released and after a brief hiatus to protect his golden vocal chords, R.C. Bray is back in the studio, bringing us the supremely recorded release of KHAOS. This one is ear honey, people. Okay, that sounds gross, but you get it. Even if you’ve already read the book, you will love how Mr. Bray brings it to life.
To save mankind…they must raise the gods.
Several months after his neighborhood was cloaked in darkness and invaded by the demon-like denizens of a hellish world, life has returned to normal for Miah Gray, aka: Laser Chicken. No longer burdened by PTSD, he is free to enjoy his family and to help pick up the pieces of a pillaged world.
At night, he trains with his eight-year-old companion, Bree, aka: Demon Dog, and their neighbors, Henry and Sarah, the god-like descendants of Helen of Sparta and the mythological Zeus.
All is calm…until new neighbors move in across the street and shatter the peace. Jonas, aka: Mind Bullet, a telekinetic assassin, and his artificial intelligence, Bubbles, are pursued by strange and powerful enemies. The neighborhood is rocked by sudden violence, but the unlikely heroes band together to save the residents once more.
However, their victory is short-lived when it’s interrupted by the appearance of a superhuman figure who has been influencing their lives for years: Linda.
In classic mythology fashion, Zeus, supreme god of Olympus, sends them on an urgent quest: descend into the underworld, travel through the realm between worlds—Khaos, face whatever trials await, find the gate to Tartarus, and summon the gods and Titans residing there to war. A grave evil is coming, and only Earth’s oldest and most powerful heroes can stop it.
New York Times and #1 Audible bestseller Jeremy Robinson descends into the underworld and brings his unique brand of madness along for the ride, putting a new spin on Greek myths, building a fantastic new world, and laying the final puzzle piece for the Infinite Timeline, which will conclude in SINGULARITY, an epic crossover novel bringing together a dozen books. KHAOS is equal parts character, myth, humor, and poetic action sequences.
And now that secret book I mentioned!
Read and bear witness to the most extraordinary firsthand account of a journey to another world full of mysterious creatures, confounding technolog ies, and daily discoveries that challenge the way humanity sees the universe—and our place in it. This is the journal of Doctor Erasmus Gray, a man from the future who risked everything—including love, in an effort to discover the universe’s most elusive prize: Life.
This book is a collection of journal entries, both observations about the world he’s exploring, and personal notes. Combined with the doctor’s illustrations of the life he encounters, it creates a compelling story that is perfect for all ages, instills a sense of wonder, and is perfect for the bookshelf or coffee table.
“Doctor Gray’s story moved me so much, I knew I had to get this journal into [the] right hands and let the world learn from his explorations, both in [the] cosmos and his own mind.”
—Milos ‘Cowboy’ Vesely
Available in hardcover only, at Amazon. Grab it now and (maybe) get it for Christmas!
You’ll probably hear from me one more time before the year is through, but if you want to keep up with all the craziness going on (and be one of 12 people to snag a free Christmas gift in the days leading up to the holiday, come join the Tribe on Facebook. It’s a 3000+ member group of fans (and myself) talking about the books, TV, film and comics to come. Hope to see you there!
*Audiobook listeners. R.C. Bray told by doctors that he needed to take a break to save his voice. Thus, the release of Khaos in audio has been delayed until December 13. Another newsletter will be released on that date. That said, you can still pre-order it now!
Okay, back to business.
Where do I even begin to talk about the madness that is Khaos? How about the books that brought us to this point. There are spoilers below, so if you haven’t read this far in the Infinite Timeline, scroll down to learn everything you need to know, read those books, and then come back here. 🙂
First came Tribe. It was one of the most action-packed, bonkers novels I’ve written featuring Greek gods, demigods, a cult, Japanese sukeban, and grandmother cleaning-lady assassins. And it introduced us to Henry–one of my wildest characters to date–who feels no fear, and Sarah, whose strength becomes the stuff of legend.
Next came The Dark, which, as the title suggests is one of my most dark and twisted stories combining mythology about hell with a very personal view of an alien invasion. This story gave us Miah, aka: Laser Chicken, the compassionate hero with a heart of gold and a pair of laser wings to boot. It also introduced Bree, aka: Demon Dog, an eight year old girl whose ability to transform into a demon make her fearsome and savage.
Last, we dove headlong into the insane life and antics of Mind Bullet, following a telekinetic assassin and his friends as they are pursued by a treasure trove of hilariously psychotic killers, uncovering his complicated past and unbelievable parentage along the way. Jonas, the assassin, who has a sarcastic wit and untapped potential, is joined by Bubbles, an AI with a grudge against ducks and developmental trajectory propelling her toward sentience.
And now…they’re all coming together for a book that could only be titled Khaos. Not just because of the word “chaos” but because they are en route to the mythological land separating Earth from Tartarus–the perilous land between worlds known as Khaos. So let’s dig right into this!
When I started working on the Infinite Timeline, I knew how many books I wanted to include. By the time I was halfway through the Timeline books, I knew exactly which books would be included in the crossovers and eventual epic finale, SINGULARITY. Well, I THOUGHT I knew. But I write by the seat of my pants. I don’t outline. I don’t plan. Often times I get to know my main characters as I write them. My critics would say that’s obvious, but I think it’s also why my fans like my books. They’re often unpredictable, because even the author doesn’t know what’s going to happen, sometimes not until the second I write it.
And that’s what happened here. TORMENT was a novel I wrote in 2010. It wasn’t supposed to be part of the Infinite Timeline, but then along came the wild, unplanned plot of INFINITE 2, and I suddenly had a pathway not just to TORMENT, but to all of my previous novels. Now, I didn’t use enough from the other books to make them a part of the Timeline, but TORMENT becomes a central focus, and thus it became the last entry into the INFINITE TIMELINE, thirteen years after its release.
But wait, there’s more! As a Jeremy Robinson fan, you might be saying to yourself, “I don’t remember a novel named TORMENT…” Well, that’s probably because twelve years ago, I was publishing a ton of books, and none of them came close to being as…graphic and dark…as TORMENT. So it was released under the pen name, Jeremy Bishop. Now, graphic and dark are pretty much par for the course. So we’re re-releasing the book under my name with a brand-spanking new cover, updating the audio edition, and releasing it in hardcover for the first time!
The time has FINALLY come! I get to announce ONE of SEVERAL Hollywood projects that are in the works. And holy forking shirt balls, it is a big one. Like…kaiju sized.
That’s right folks, as reported in Deadline...
Chad Stahelski (director of John Wick 1 – 4) is at the helm, and if that isn’t awesome enough, it’s being produced by Original Film AND Sony Pictures Television (the team behind The Boys, SWAT, Preacher and Happy!). Below, along with some awesome Nemesis art, I’ll tell you how all this came about, where things are, and where we’re headed.
This all began so long ago I honestly don’t remember the year. But it was about six years ago, in September, when I got a call from director Chad Stahelski. He’d read Project Nemesis, and being a fellow kaiju fan with Massachusetts roots, he fell in love with the story. So much so that he wanted to create a series based on it. We spoke for about an hour, with him laying out his vision for the series…which matched perfectly with my own. I was on board, 100%.
And then, the waiting began. It was two years before Chad would go into Original Film for a meeting about the Highlander movie he’s directing and casually mention Nemesis. When he left that meeting, we had producers attached, and shortly after, SONY was on board. Thus began the years-long contract negotiations during which I met with Chad several times, and was lucky enough to attend the John Wick 2 and 3 premieres. Finally, a year ago, the contracts were squared away and signed. And since then–really for the past six years–I’ve been bouncing off the walls, dying to tell EVERYONE that this was in the works. And now here we are, and I’m freaking out. Hopefully, you are too!
WHERE WE ARE AND WHERE WE ARE GOING
