It feels like history is repeating itself when out-of-favour detective Will Harlan gets summoned to a murder scene in the village of Brackenbrae after a young girl is found hanging in the woods. Five years ago Harlan headed up the investigation of an identical killing in the same woods; a mishandled investigation that effectively destroyed his credibility as a detective. The new case immediately takes a bizarre twist when the body is identified as the same girl found hanging in the woods five years ago. The following day a local man commits suicide and the police find more dead girls hidden in his basement. It seems an open and shut case. Until the killing spree begins. Harlan finds himself drawn into a dark world where murder is a form of self-expression and human life treated as one more commodity to be used and discarded. The only clue that links everything is a large oil painting of ‘Sagittarius A’ – a massive black hole at the centre of the galaxy orbited by thirteen stars, the canvas daubed in blood with the words - Heart Swarm.

Almost anyone who has read or written Science Fiction or fantasy has been inspired by the work of Michael Moorcock. His literary flair and grand sense of adventure have been evident since his controversial first novel Behold the Man, through the stories and novels featuring his most famous character, Elric of Melniboné, to his fantasy masterpiece, Gloriana, winner of both the Campbell Memorial and World Fantasy, awards for best novel. Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, and Michael Chabon all cite Moorcock as a major influence; as editor of New Worlds magazine, he helped launch the careers of many of his contemporaries, including Harlan Ellison, Philip K. Dick, and J. G. Ballard. Tor Books now proudly presents Moorcock's first independent novel in nine years, a tale both fantastical and autobiographical, a celebration of London and what it meant to be young there in the years after World War II. The Whispering Swarm is the first in a trilogy that will follow a young man named Michael as he simultaneously discovers himself and a secret realm hidden deep in the heart of London.

Swarmwise (2013) is a tactical guide to changing the world using cost-efficient swarm methodology. It is a leadership handbook that outlines how the Swedish Pirate Party was able to beat the competition on less than one percent of their budget, and shows how any cash- and time-strapped executive or manager can use swarm methodologies, whether the goal is social, business, or political. The organization, founded by one man without resources, has now spread to over 70 countries using the same cost-efficient swarm organization. Swarmwise will tell you what it takes to found a swarm of volunteers, how to organize and energize it, and how to lead it to success. The book doesn't go into theoretical detail, psychology, or deep research papers. Rather, it is very hands-on leadership advice from pure experience – it covers everything from how you give instructions to new marketing assistants or activists about handing out flyers in the street, up to and including how you communicate with TV stations and organize hundreds of thousands of people in a coherent swarm. Above all, it focuses on the cost-efficiency of the swarm structure, and is a tactical instruction manual for anybody who wants to dropkick their competition completely – no matter whether their game is business, social, or political. Swarmwise, chapter by chapter: Chapter 1 - Understanding the Swarm deals with the basic concepts of a swarm organization, and explains why the swarm is open and transparent. It introduces the concept of a cost-efficiency advantage of two orders of magnitude. In chapter 2 - Launching Your Swarm, we learn that the published project plan must be tangible, credible, inclusive, and epic, and what that means in practice. Chapter 3 - Getting Your Swarm Organized gives tangible advice on how to organize a volunteer organization and why. We look at the dynamics of different group sizes and how to build a culture of trust. One of the most counterintuitive lessons is detailed in Chapter 4 - Control the Vision, but Never the Message. It explains how you need to use volunteers to translate your vision into messages that fit a specific social context, rather than using an one-size-fits all slogan. A healthy dose of classic project management is found in chapter 5 - Make The Targets Visible, And Paint Them Red Daily. We talk about metrics, choosing the right metrics, and causing self-organization to happen when you publish the right metrics to optimize. In chapter 6 - Screw Democracy, We're on a Mission from God, we talk about conflict resolution mechanisms and how to optimize the swarm for speed, trust, and scalability. Chapter 7 - Surviving Growth Unlike Anything the MBAs Have Seen details how the swarm can grow by 200% in a week when some events play out, and how to handle such situations. One of the more advanced chapters, chapter 8 - Using Social Dynamics To Their Potential goes into how we can tap into the long tail of people and effectively cross-use online and offline friendships to grow organically. Seeing how most organizations need to deal with TV, newspapers, and radio, there is also chapter 9 - Managing Oldmedia that details everything from press release processes to TV crews. Finally, chapter 10 - Beyond Success shares a bit of experience of what happens when you feel at the top of the world, and what to do then. "Your most valuable asset isn't your employees," I told the executive. "Your most valuable asset are the thousands of people who want to work for you for free, and you don't let them."

In this fast-paced high-tech thriller, Austin-based hacktivst Tom Ayana is already an infamous flash-mob impresario known as "Swarm" when experimental software code is leaked to him from the Defense Department. Tom's enhanced neuro-abilities and his encounter with the shadowy Meta Militia propel his online alter ego into becoming "the elusive alpha that controls the hive mind" with transformative and potentially lethal effects. As Swarm pursues his quest to jumpstart the next phase of human evolution, he becomes the target for Jack Duggan-a Homeland Security cyber-investigator with a reputation for going rogue. Duggan risks his career to untangle a web of corruption and betrayal that reaches from a military atrocity in Afghanistan and an Edenic video game virtual world to the highest echelons of U.S. government. Duggan soon enlists biologist Cara Park to help him stop Swarm before he ignites a crowd-sourced insurrection with the power to shatter the status quo and rewrite the rules of democracy.

It was a time of hippies, heroin, and All in the Family. It was a time, in the small town of New Canaan-a fictional town in mid-Michigan-when developers gobbled up farmland and spit out subdivisions. Against this backdrop, Swarm Theory's interlocking narratives reveal the troubled lives of Astrid (a young woman trying to hold her family together), Caroline (Astrid's best friend who has lost her mother to heroin), Will (a soldier struggling to make sense of life after being discharged from the Marines), and Father Maurice Silver (a priest caring for a young man dying of AIDS). Nothing in New Canaan is quite what it seems. Swarm Theory is a book that reveals life's amazing contradictions-the wonderful and the profane, devotion and infidelity, understanding and revenge-through stories told from different perspectives. These stories investigate what happens when people come together-whether to do admirable or horrific things. Here, intimates and strangers alike can't help but be intertwined; their unpredictable journeys providing a backdrop for characters complex, honorable, and not. Swarm Theory reveals our often misguided, dark, and life-sustaining dependency on each other.

To escape the hell she created, a woman must team up with a novice warrior and return to her homeland in this gritty epic fantasy where delusions are literally made real. Zerfall awakens in an alley, wounded and unable to remember her past. Chased by an assassin out into the endless wastes of the desert, she is caught, disfigured, and left for dead. Her scabbard is empty, but the need for answers--and the pull of her sword--will draw her back to the city-states. When Jateko, a na�ve youth, accidentally kills a member of his own tribe, he finds himself outcast and pursued across the desert for his crimes. Crazed from dehydration, dying of thirst and hunger, he stumbles across Zerfall. Hunted by assassins and bound by mutual need, both Zerfall and Jeteko will confront the T�uschung, an ancient and deranged religion ruled by a broken fragment of Zerfall's mind. Swarm, the T�uschung hell, seethes with imprisoned souls, but where gods--real or imagined--meddle in the affairs of man, the cost is high. In Swarm and Steel, the power of belief can manifest and shape reality, and for political and religious leaders, faith becomes a powerful tool. But the insane are capable of twisting reality with their delusions as well, turning increasingly dangerous as their sanity crumbles. It is here that a long prophesied evil will be born, an endless hunger. The All Consuming will rise.

“If any ambitious TV producers are looking for [a] multi-part fantasy to adapt after the success of HBO’s Game of Thrones . . . Robert Redick’s impressive Chathrand Voyage series . . . has it all.”—SFX Robert V. S. Redick brings his acclaimed fantasy series The Chathrand Voyage to a triumphant close that merits comparison to the work of such masters as George R. R. Martin, Philip Pullman, and J.R.R. Tolkien himself. The evil sorcerer Arunis is dead, yet the danger has not ended. For as he fell, beheaded by the young warrior-woman Thasha Isiq, Arunis summoned the Swarm of Night, a demonic entity that feasts on death and grows like a plague. If the Swarm is not destroyed, the world of Alifros will become a vast graveyard. Now Thasha and her comrades—the tarboy Pazel Pathkendle and the mysterious wizard Ramachni—begin a quest that seems all but impossible. Yet there is hope: One person has the power to stand against the Swarm: the great mage Erithusmé. Long thought dead, Erithusmé lives, buried deep in Thasha’s soul. But for the mage to live again, Thasha Isiq may have to die. Praise for The Night of the Swarm “Robert Redick is an extraordinary talent.”—Karen Miller, bestselling author of The Innocent Mage “Robert V. S. Redick has developed into one of the most exciting young voices in fantasy today.”—Fantasy Book Critic “[Redick] pulls off epic fantasy with a great deal of style, giving his readers everything they want along with a big bag of surprises.”—Starburst Magazine “The Night of the Swarm is a nail-biting, non-stop action adventure that would thrill any fantasy novel reader!”—Tome Tender “I raced through The Night of the Swarm.
