I'm working on book one of the next trilogy, which is already under contract. It'll be a stand-alone series that takes place in the Powder Mage Universe about ten years after Autumn Republic. I'll focus on a conflict between distant Fatrasta and the neighboring Dynize Empire.(less)

Hey Marc! Thanks a ton!

The Wings of Adom are certainly on my (very long) list of side characters/entities I want to explore more in the short fiction. Right now I just finished a short story based on Vlora and I'm working on a murder mystery that features Adamat.(less)

The Autumn Republic by Brian  McClellan
"An amazing book! I was under the impression that this was just the third book in a series, but with the way this book went, it might have been a trilogy. In which case, I'd probably call it one of the best fantasy trilogies ever written.

“Doctor, what could you prescribe for Charlemund?”
The doctor looked down his nose at the unconscious form of the arch-diocel.
“Arsenic?”
“Now, really. Something to give him a quality headache and a great deal of memory loss.”
“Cyanide.”
Brian McClellan, Promise of Blood

“You’ve one mark on your record,” Tamas said. “You once punched a na-baron in the face. Broke his jaw. Tell me about that.”
Olem grimaced. “Officially, sir, I was pushing him out of the way of a runaway carriage. Saved his life. Half my company saw it.”
“With your fist?”
“Aye.”
“And unofficially?”
“The man was a git. He shot my dog because it startled his horse.”
“And if I ever have cause to shoot your dog?”
“I’ll punch you in the face.”
“Fair enough. You have the job.”
Brian McClellan, Promise of Blood

“The age of kings is dead, Adamat, and I have killed it.”
