Today is a very exciting day for me … my Star Wars novel INTO THE VOID (Dawn of the Jedi) is released! It was 35 years ago that an 8 year old boy sat wide-eyed in the cinema watching an amazing, groundbreaking movie called Star Wars, and he could never have believed that three decades later he’d be writing his own novel set in that far away, long ago galaxy.
And now I have!
Check here for all the places you can buy it online, and of course it’ll be in brick and mortar stores as well.
There has also been a whole rush of reviews released today, as well as recent interviews I’ve done (still plenty more to come). Here’s a list of reviews, just click the links to check them out. I’m thrilled say that reviews are splendid so far…

Some nice reviews of my recent books have come in recently, thought I’d share them here:
The Heart of Horror reviews COLDBROOK
Dreadful Tales gives THE THIEF OF BROKEN TOYS a lovely review.
Bart’s Bookshelf reviews LONDON EYE.
Nice! Hoping for some more reviews to come in next month as REAPER’S LEGACY hits the shelves in the USA. There’s no UK deal for the TOXIC CITY trilogy, so if you’re interested you’ll have to order from the USA.
There’s a great review of The Heretic Land here, by the very excellent writer Jesse Bullington. Nice!
And I’ve been interviewed here about my short story collection Nothing as it seems.
Oh, and a big announcement about a new deal will be surfacing soon (the next day or two), so watch this space!
… for LONDON EYE … and COLDBROOK.
They keep on rolling in!
Some VERY exciting news coming soon, just waiting for official go-ahead to announce.
Check out a great review of COLDBROOK here. And I’m delighted to announce that the book will be published in the USA, details soon.
Also a fantastic review of LONDON EYE here. This trilogy is in development with ABC Network as a TV series.
There is a new interview covering Coldbrook right just here.
Here’s a nice new interview with me on My Bookish Ways.
And a very nice new review of LONDON EYE.
Been running along the canal a lot recently, and this last week I’ve seen a kingfisher a couple of times. Not often I seen one of those. It’s a beautiful bird, coloured like a splash of oil on water, and it made me realise — once again — just what a lovely place I live in. I’m going to start taking pictures and posting them here.
Anyone interested in following my efforts to get fit in my forties and train for Ironman UK next year can read it all here.
More news coming soon … watch this space for something very exciting!
The very splendid James Lovegrove, on ECHO CITY:
Tim Lebbon made his name as a writer of cheerfully gory horror fiction, and that’s evident in Echo City’s prologue, which opens with a monstrous creature shambling across a toxic wasteland and dying. From its corpse emerges another smaller creature, which continues the journey until it too dies, and from its corpse emerges yet another, still smaller creature, and so on. It’s a ghastly, death-inflected parody of the cycle of life, and sets the scene superbly for the existential torments that are to come.
Echo City is packed with gruesome detail and outlandish characters but the star of the show is the city itself, marooned in an unending, lethal desert. Lebbon seems to know every sinister nook and dusty cranny of the place, and enriches his creation with an intricate backstory of internecine religious cults, social stratification and genetic engineering. His seething urban stew bubbles over with the arrival of an outsider who has, impossibly, survived the rigours of the imprisoning wilderness, sparking conflict and the fulfilment of apocalyptic prophecies.
