The Time Has Come for the Next Book's Title and Cover Reveal!
...the first installment of the "Barbarians of the Storm - Side Quest" books!
As can be seen from the cover reveal above, the upcoming “fifth” book is titled Fenrik 1984. Why? Because it sends Fenrik on his own solo adventure to 1984 Miami. In a way, it is like the setup to Dan the Destructor, but in reverse.
The description for the book:
Following the events of Swords Against Bastards, Fenrik is pulled away to a strange land in a different time.
While dealing with incredible loss, Fenrik must find himself again. However, he has to do it without his friends. He must also take down a new villain that possesses a legendary sword from his home world’s past.
This is the first of the Side Quest books under the Barbarians of the Storm banner. This new series will consist of solo adventures for key characters in the BotS saga.
As the book’s description states, Fenrik 1984 is the first in the Side Quest subseries of novels. These books will allow me to do stories focused on singular (or a few) characters, as well as experiment with different genres. At the end of the day, they will all still be very much pulp. Many of my concepts for these books started out as short story ideas for anthologies that I decided would work better as more fleshed out pulp novels.
I’m shooting to have the book released in early April. If that changes, I will give an update, here. This Substack is the best place to stay up-to-date on all things Barbarians of the Storm and Talking Pulp Press related.
Plus, now that you know it is coming very soon, that gives you time to either catch up on the other Barbarians of the Storm books or to re-read them!
