Which One….?

By | Books, Featured | No Comments


So, the Max Stone story is really taking shape.

Liam and myself were in the middle of writing the second in the series and we realized it was way cooler than the first story.  KRAAXOR was way more badass, the characters were jumping to life and well it was more marvel.

And so we took the leap and decided to rewrite the original story and man is it worth it.  To bring the characters to life we have started working with the huge talent of Gary O Donnell and along the way we will keep you updated on how the characters are taking shape.

Liza Bolton is a new Irish film director, who has her first feature film, Cattle Raid, in the festivals at the moment.  She has been a huge help in directing the flow of the story and helping us get that bit closer to bringning Max Stone to the big screen.  (there is a feature on Liza over on the collaborators and we are building one for Gary)

We haven’t quite decided on the image for the Ranguilla, one of the daemons Max and Boctamus encounter in the Norther Caves, as they flee the Kaemon Klaan……let us know which one you prefer.

A short extract to give you some background if you haven’t read the first edition..

talk soon

Well the new story is well and truly underway…..

Myself and Liam have scoped out 16 chapters so far and it looks like its gonna be a good one…

To whet your appetite we’ve posted the first chapter, and if you want to read more, just check in once in a while..


Chapter One

The Kerlang Mines

Deep in the Kerlang mines of Zirdon DRÄÄGNOS seethes with anger and flings his pickaxe to the ground.  For too long he and his Kaemon Klaan served the creatures of Zirdon, worked their precious mines in the deep cold caves.

The harsh and hateful cold.

His reptilian blood freezes but his warrior instinct rises.  He craves the heat of the sun on his face, yearns for freedom and dreams of power and leadership.  DRÄÄGNOS wants more.

Oh yes! DRÄÄGNOS, descendant of the great TUSHBACCKA, once celebrated leader of all Kaemon Warriors, wants much, much more. Read More

2nd Edition Max Stone

By | Books | One Comment

Had some great feedback on Max Stone from the people in the Stripes Publishing House in London and they suggested opening the story with a new first chapter…

Chapter one


KRÄÄXOR, feared leader of the Kaemon Klann, fumed his reptilian rage. The pitiful creatures of Zirdon had foiled his attempt to crush them from existence and so wipe their planet from the Galaxy of Stars.  He and his Lizard Warriors desperately needed freedom from Zirdon, to roam the universe and plunder and pillage as they sought fit.

But no! These wretched Tribes had risen against him, and now he was bound to this hated planet until he could find a way of destroying the Star of Zirdon. Read More

Another great review for Max, this time from Aoiffe who reviewed the book on behalf of http://www.mykidstime.ie/
Hi DeclanSorry for taking so long in getting back to you.  I was waiting on Jack to finish the book and do a review for me. I have to say I was a wee bit cheeky and had a read myself.  I’m a bit of a closet Sci Fi nut and your book fits the bill to a tee.  Absolutely loved it.  Both myself and Jack are looking forward to the next book.  Hope its not too long in coming.Great work and hope you get the recognition the book deserves.Aoiffe Read More
