When Project Nemesis launched in 2012, my goal was to make Nemesis a household name, but I had no idea the novel would spawn 5 novels, a comic book, a (cancelled) video game and…more to come…in just a few years. The only reason these things became possible is because Nemesis has the best fans imaginable, many of whom send me art on a regular basis. So, to thank all of you, I’ve put together a little video. You guys are awesome, and whatever is next for Nemesis (hopefully something kaiju sized) its only possible because you all have been there from the start.
Prepare Thyself For Fictional Insanity
So, I release a good number of books every year, and 2016 is no different. BUT, it’s looking like it will be one of the most epic years for my novels. Not only are several series continuing, we’re also launching two new series and a stand alone of monstrous proportions. To celebrate the string of new novels, I’ve put together the video above, which reveals what’s coming and when (though all dates are subject to change). In order of release, the new novels for 2016 are:
Apocalypse Machine (a new stand alone Kaiju Thriller) – March 1
Empire (8th Jack Sigler Thriller) – April
Feast (Book 2 of the Hunger series) – May
Unity ( kaiju vs giant robot story ) – June
Centurion (book 3 of the Jack Sigler Continuum series) – August
Helios (book 2 of the Cerberus Group Thrillers) – September
Project Legion (book 5, and the epic finale of the Nemesis series) – October
Viking Tomorrow (first book in a new post-apocalyptic Viking Berserker Saga) – November
THE HUMAN RACE STARTED THE SIXTH MASS EXTINCTION ON EARTH…
A chain of subglacial volcanoes erupt in Iceland. The melting ice floods the countryside. Poisonous gas descends on Scotland. A tsunami devastates the Norwegian coastline. An ash cloud rises into the atmosphere, blotting out the sun across Europe, ushering in a new Ice Age. Dozens of nuclear power plants, flooded by ocean water, experience meltdowns. Millions perish. Many more are displaced. All on the first day.
On the second day, a series of earthquakes moving in a straight line, reveal the presence of something massive, walking across the landscape. Concealed by a thick, radioactive ash cloud, the ‘aberration’ heads west, toward Russia.
Abraham Wright, a science writer for Modern Scientist, who wants nothing more than to be reunited with his family, finds himself at the center of the United States’ response to the crisis. Under his new title as Assistant Science Advisor to the President, Wright is sent to Europe with a team of Army Rangers, where he uncovers the truth about the ancient behemoth laying waste to the world: there have been five mass extinctions on planet Earth, and the aberration has been present at each.
On the third day, the world fights back.
Separated from his family by continents and oceans ravaged by countless disasters and populated by strange new life, Wright struggles to survive in an evolving world. Hoping to uncover the key to mankind’s redemption, he fights for answers, and to reach his loved ones—before the human race’s extinction.
THE APOCALYPSE MACHINE WILL FINISH IT.
Jeremy Robinson returns to the Kaiju Thriller genre he popularized with the largest Kaiju to ever appear in fiction: the Apocalypse Machine. Bursting with all the epic action, desperate struggle and complex characters that readers have come to expect, Robinson takes the world to the brink once more, pitting humanity against the greatest threat he has yet to conjure, and asking the question: Does humanity deserve to inherit the Earth, or is our time up?
J.J. Abrams put out some of the most stunning, mentally twisting original stories in theaters and on our TV. Then he went and revitalized beloved franchisees from the past. Now he is bringing the two together and revitalizing one of his iconic original stories. I thought Cloverfield was lots of fun, and it used the found footage trope because it served the story, not because it served the budget. Still the only nod to that motif here is the presentation of the trailer. I love the theory that this was the intended way to show this trailer as a omega to the original. And, even as one who enjoys set rumors and a year of different trailers and images, the idea of “Surprise, I made an entire movie while no one was looking at anything other than Star Wars.” is awesome.
Did you like the original Cloverfield? What do you think of the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane?
