Argent Hellion Releases Debut Novel, ATHARON: EXORDIUMArgent Hellion Releases Debut Novel, ATHARON: EXORDIUM
by BWW News Desk - Aug 7, 2015

'Atharon:Exordium,' the debut novel by Argent Hellion - published by Copyhouse Press - is set to become the most eagerly awaited fantasy debut novel in years. The novel itself has been compared in style to George R.R. Martin, J.R.R Tolkien and Mervyn Peake in anonymised early test sampling, with RPG legends Dever, Livingstone and Jackson also being mentioned by test readers as influences. The lavishly illustrated epic's art has even been compared to that of gamebook legend Gary Chalk by test marketing audiences who have read early drafts. Pre-release publicity has already been picked up by news websites and influential bloggers and tweeters worldwide. These range from Japanese RPG Fandom Twitter feeds with small armies of followers nearly 100k strong, to the influential arts website Broadway World which has also reported on the release. The buzz has even reached Google News and BBC Record London. As the author himself puts it: 'Imagine for a moment that 'Game of Thrones' fell in love with 'Star Wars' and they got engaged. Now also imagine that 'Game of Thrones' decided to cheat on 'Star Wars,' ran away with 'World of Warcraft' just before the wedding ceremony and had a child with it afterwards...' The novel is scheduled for a Q1 2016 release. Argent Hellion is available for interview and can be contacted via Copyhouse Press Ltd. (more...)

Poet Jonathan Goh Launches ELUDORANPoet Jonathan Goh Launches ELUDORAN
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2015

Poet Jonathan Goh's recent publication, 'Eludoran: The Legend of Lorelei in a Geste of Grave Misconceptions' (published by Partridge Singapore) has earned the distinction of longest fantasy rhyming poem ever written in Singapore. Dedicated as a tribute to his late grandfather, 'Eludoran' is a commentary of stereotypical fantasy fiction comprising three acts in 44 chapters. This numbering is not a coincidence; it is intended as a subtle reference of its subject matter since the number four in Chinese cultures is synonymous with death. Inspired by the works of earlier fantasy authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien and Brian Jacques, 'Eludoran' offers its audience a darker perspective into the world of animal fantasy. (more...)

Copyhouse Press Announces New Fantasy Novel by Argent HellionCopyhouse Press Announces New Fantasy Novel by Argent Hellion
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2015

Copyhouse Press Ltd of London are proud to announce the forthcoming debut novel by Argent Hellion. The novel is an immersive epic fantasy, which takes place in a new and exciting setting developed by the author over many years. It fuses action, adventure and the depth of characterisation which naturally springs from such a vibrant milieu. The style and substance of Argent Hellion Silvers' work is reminiscent of the very best on offer from such genre titans as George R.R. Martin, J.R.R Tolkien and Mervyn Peake. Fans of roleplaying series will also feel at home, as the work combines the charisma and verve of classic Jackson and Livingstone, and the nuanced immersive intelligent fantasy of Dever's Magnamund. When the infusion of the author's own unique twist on the soaring epic heroism and darkest horrors of the Eurpoean folkloric tradition is added to the mix, the result is an atmospheric fantasy of truly epic proportions which feels unique and utterly believeable. The novel is currently in pre-production and is scheduled for release in early Q1 of 2016. It will be beautifully illustrated throughout and will be a must-have addition to any and every discerning fantasy fan's bookshelf. Argent Hellion can be contacted for interview via the Marketing Team at Copyhouse Press Ltd. (more...)

Instead enjoy The Skylight Ring, Skylight Music Theatre's cheeky, slightly irreverent yet oh so entertaining two hour and four actor version on the Studio Stage at the Broadway Theatre Center.
