SHARKPUNK cover artist at Forbidden Planet this Saturday!

This Saturday, Simon Coleby - the ace artist behind the SHARKPUNK  cover - will be at London's Forbidden Planet Megastore, on Shaftesbury Avenue, from 1:00-2:00pm, signing copies of Ian Livingstone's Freeway Fighter comic.

Also in attendance will be the selachian anthology's editor, Jonathan Green, and it is rumoured that Alec Worley, who wrote Sharkcop 2: Feeding Frenzy, will also be attending the event.

So if you're in London on Saturday, and maybe planning on attending the signing already, don't forget to bring along your copy of SHARKPUNK to get that signed too!

The SHARKPUNK 2 Kickstarter kicks off tomorrow!

That's...


Still wondering whether you should back the Kickstarter or not? Well here's what some readers had to say about SHARKPUNK (Volume 1) on Amazon...

"This collection is well worthy of your time. Every story is a winner in my opinion and they are all a great deal of fun. In all honesty I’d have great difficulty picking a favourite."

"If I could give this book more than 5 stars, I would... Usually, I go into an anthology expecting to like about 75-80% of the stories and to find an uneven quality of story-telling, but I didn't find a single one I didn't like."


"In the interests of transparency, I should probably fess up to being a huge fan of anything with a fin in it. I am that person who happily watches the likes of Sharknado... While some of the stories featured in Sharkpunk are as gloriously silly as anything Asylum has ever offered, equally there is also some really thrilling horror and some surprisingly touching psychological chillers... There's not a weak story among the lot, probably because it would get turned on and eaten by the others."


"This book was, pardon the pun, fintastic. Each story revolving around Sharks in one form or another, be it physical or mental and in some both. The calibre of writers assembled to contribute to this book was impressive... I cannot recommend this book enough and you don't even have to be a fan of sharks to enjoy it...but it helps. 10/10"

"Put simply, Sharkpunk is twenty unique visions of what it means to be either predator or prey. This anthology contains stories that don’t just feature sharks, they also dissect the mind of a perfectly evolved killer. Nestled deep in the pages of this collection you’ll find everything from stories set in feudal Japan to tales featuring men with an impressive olfactory sense. Steampunk, horror, science fiction and thriller blend together to create a collection that revels in the raw, bloody savagery of an apex carnivore."

And lastly, this one, via Twitter...

"Thank you for creating the greatest book I never knew I needed. Literal jewel of my literary collection... Treat yourself guys and give in to Sharkpunk!" 

You can sneak a look at the SHARKPUNK 2 Kickstarter, and the rewards on offer, here.

The SHARKPUNK 2 Kickstarter launches in 2 days!

As well as the rewards to receive copies of SHARKPUNK 2, the Kickstarter also features a number of add-ons. These can either be selected by themselves, or added to the other pledge levels by adding the appropriate funds to the total pledged.

Some people who back the Kickstarter will have already read SHARKPUNK (Volume 1) but some won't, so that's one of the rewards on offer, along with the other anthologies I have edited for Snowbooks, including GAME OVER and Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu.

The other anthologies I have edited for Snowbooks.

There is also the option to add the SHARKPUNK Audiobook, produced by Circle of Spears, which backers of the SHARKPUNK 2 Kickstarter can get for the reduced price of £15.

Remember, these add-ons can be selected by themselves or added on to any other pledge level.

So, for example, if you want the hardback of SHARKPUNK 2 and would also like the SHARKPUNK Audiobook, then you would pledge £50 for the GREAT WHITE reward + £15 for the audiobook, making your total pledge £65.

Or, if you would like the MEGALODON reward (£80), and SHARKPUNK (Volume 1) (£13), GAME OVER and Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu (£20), as well as the SHARKPUNK Audiobook (£15), then you would pledge a total of £128.

The SHARKPUNK 2 Kickstarter launches in 3 days!

And those people who get on board early will be rewarded by having access to a number of Early Bird rewards.

Usually these kinds of rewards are limited in number, but Kickstarter have now introduced an alternative option, whereby a project's creator can dictate how long a reward is available for. So, for the first week of the Kickstarter's run, the GREENLAND SHARKHAMMERHEADGREAT WHITE and WHALE SHARK rewards (which all include physical copies of SHARKPUNK 2) will be available with a £5 discount.

However, there is still one limited reward, and that is the MEGALODON reward, which includes a very special reward that fans of Sky Sharks will want to get their hands on.
