Welcome to the website of Kevin Hearne, author of The Iron Druid Chronicles. You can navigate around the site using the spiffy links at the top of the page. Writer’s Grove is the name of my blog if you’re looking for that.
The first five and a half books of the series are now available, and there are handy links to order them if you head over to the Books or Novellas pages and choose one—a veritable cornucopia of vendors await your mouse click!
In case you’re in the gift-giving mood and you’d like to send someone signed & personalized books for a birthday or whatever, you can call The Poisoned Pen toll-free or order online. Please note that they are an indie store and can’t do super-fast shipping, but they can grab me anytime and get something special done for you. Their number is 1-888-560-9919.
Upcoming work in 2013: “The Chapel Perilous,” an Iron Druid short story appearing in the anthology UNFETTERED, coming in May; GRIMOIRE OF THE LAMB, an Iron Druid novella, out on May 7; HUNTED, book 6 of IDC, on June 25; and “The Demon Barker of Wheat Street,” a short story set during Granuaile’s training period with the highest body count of anything I’ve written, on July 23, in the anthology CARNIEPUNK. The latter is so cool—it’s all dark urban fantasy stories set at a carnival by Rachel Caine, Jennifer Estep, Rob Thurman, Seanan McGuire, Nicole Peeler, Jaye Wells, Kelly Meding, Kelly Gay, Delilah Dawson, Jackie Kessler, Allison Pang, Hillary Jacques, and Mark Henry!
OK—freebies and stuff: You can read the first six chapters of HOUNDED for the low, low price of FREE by clicking here!
Here’s what Publisher’s Weekly says about HOUNDED in a Starred Review: “Hearne, a self-professed comic-book nerd, has turned his love of awesome dudes whacking mightily at evil villains into a superb urban fantasy debut.” Read the full review here. And there are more reviews on my Reviews page, plus the flood of stuff you can find out there on the Internet.
From John Ottinger III, editor of GraspingForTheWind.com: “This is the best urban/paranormal fantasy I have read in years. Fast paced, funny, clever, and suitably mythic, this is urban fantasy for those worn-out of werewolves and vampires. Fans of Jim Butcher, Harry Connolly, Greg van Eekhout, Ben Aaronovitch, or Neil Gaiman’s American Gods will take great pleasure in Kevin Hearne’s Hounded. Highly recommended.”
There are lots of goodies on the appropriately titled Goodies page, free short stories and info about others on the Short Stories page, and please don’t be shy about contacting me using any of the addresses on the Contact page!
