Peter Newman co-writes the Hugo and Alfie Award winning Tea and Jeopardy podcast and is also the voice of the butler, Latimer.

His debut novel, THE VAGRANT, was published by Harper Voyager and won the David Gemmell Morningstar Award for best newcomer in 2016. It was followed by THE MALICE, and then THE SEVEN.

There are also two shorter stories set in the same world, available as ebooks. THE HAMMER AND THE GOAT (which is set parallel to THE VAGRANT) and THE VAGRANT AND THE CITY, which is set between books 2 and 3.

He has also written for WILDCARDS, and Fantasy MMO ALBION ONLINE.

He's currently working on a new series. Book 1, THE DEATHLESS, is coming out in the UK in June 2018.

Voyagercon!

Voyagercon is happening at Waterstones Piccadilly on the 20th August.

I'll be running an interactive 'Escape the Dungeon' with Den Patrick and hanging out with other great authors* and (hopefully) you!

And for those of you who want to know more about getting published, you can get advice from Voyager's amazing editing team, Natasha Bardon, Vicky Leech and Jack Rennisson, alongside fab agent Harry Illingworth.

Brilliant, fresh fantasy. And pulls off a trick of the craft that blows my writerly mind.

This is one of the best books I've read this year, perhaps ever. Sharpe with a female protagonist, swamps, and warlocks. Go read it!

"When the author's name gets bigger than the book's title, it already means something!"

I stepped outside my usual SFF to read THE UNSEEING by Anna Mazzola. So glad I did! A compelling, twisty, character driven, historical crime.

“She weeps, but war cares little for tears or the children that shed them.”
Peter Newman, The Malice

“From the corners of her mouth, thick yellow goo bubbles. It matches the mess between Vesper's fingers, the slime on her chin, on her legs, the blobs that randomly pepper things, the blast radius massive, confounding”
Peter Newman

“Home was my mother and my sisters and my uncle, when I was a child. Now it's you and Vesper.”
