Member Since
February 2015


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 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 Har...

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!

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