IFWG Australia is excited to announce the third instalment of the epic fantasy Warriors of Vhast series by Tasmanian author Cary J Lenehan, ‘Clearing the Web‘. “Cary’s detailed and comprehensive world building shines out as usual,” said Gerry Huntman (Managing Director IFWG), and as the storyline progresses Cary’s work gets better and better. This is a vast project, no pun intended, and we are proud to be publishing it worldwide.”

Kudos to Catherine Archer-Wills for her artwork and design for this, and previous volumes (with earlier design by Elizabeth Lang).

The world book launch for Clearing the Web will be held at:

Amor Bar,
217-219 Elizabeth Street,
North Hobart
at 7pm 29 November 2018

Clearing the Web continues to follow the unfolding events on the distant, artificial world of Vhast. A lost realm, a visit to a nearby Empire, the arrival of foes, and then a dragon test the recently anointed heroes.

Following on from Intimations of Evil and Engaging Evil, the Princess and her mage wife, the Cat, the priest, the ghazi, and the others leave their small newly freed village and set out to uncover the evil infecting The Land. One obstacle after another appears as the evil fights back.

Clearing the Web is the third book of a series that sees reality confronted and a world re-shaped as new myths are created in an epic fantasy adventure.

Clearing the Web will be released in Australia, UK and Europe on 29th November 2018, and in North America January/February 2019 (to be advised).

Re-release of Warriors of Vhast by Cary J Lenehan

Later this year we will be releasing the third book in Cary J Lenehan‘s Warriors of Vhast series, Clearing the Web. We have deliberately held back the transfer of the first two books, Intimations of Evil and Engaging Evil, to our distributors until now, as we wanted to make some changes to Book 1 – significant enough to release it as a second edition.

The reason why we made these changes was because Cary wrote his second (and forward) books in a particular style that was significantly different from book 1 and, after a long conference with him, we mutually agreed that it was better late than never to rewrite Book 1 so that the entire series is consistent in style and format. Cary wishes to stress to readers that Intimations of Evil‘s plot has not changed one bit.

“We are pleased to announce that Intimations of Evil, second edition, has now been released,” Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, stated, “and both it and Engaging Evil has now been handed over to Dennis Jones and Associates for distribution – retailers and libraries should have these titles available for order in coming days.”

Gerry adds, “We wanted to do this right and we know there is a strong fan base for Cary’s work. Additionally, we know that the readership can expand, as there is definitely a strong market for epic fantasy fiction with an emphasis on world building. Each book is significant in size and the world of Vhast is rich and…truly vast.”

Cary’s Vhast extends well beyond this series – he has written over forty short fiction pieces set in the universe, as well as feeding information on all aspects of the world through his Patreon site: Cary J Lenehan is creating Books, stories, recipes, drawings, maps, characters and cosplay.

The Warriors of Vhast series will be distributed through our North American distributor in coming weeks.

New Signing: Books 3 to 5 of Warriors of Vhast

It is with pleasure that we can now announce the signing of books 3 to 5 of Cary J Lenehan’s Warriors of Vhast series – ‘Clearing the Web’ (Book 3), ‘Scouring the Land’ (Book 4), and ‘Gathering the Strands’ (Book 5). This follows from ‘Intimations of Evil‘ (Book 1) and ‘Engaging Evil‘ (Book 2).

“Cary’s strength is his world-building,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG Publishing, “and he delivers in spades. Books 1 and 2 have garnered a strong following by those who love epic fantasy in lush, vivid worlds, and this is great news for all. We can’t be happier to continue this series.”

IFWG Publishing will be re-releasing Books 1 and 2 in March 2018 (to ensure the look and feel of the series is entirely consistent) and Clearing the Web will be released in July 2018. Books 4 and 5 will follow annually, and it is likely it will continue beyond Book 5.

Cary at AICon 2017

Cary J Lenehan at AICon, Hobart

5-6 March saw the annual Tasmanian event of AICon in Hobart. It was a fun, largely anime-oriented event with lots of cosplay.

Cary Lenehan went along to promote the second book of the Warriors of Vhast series, ‘Engaging Evil’. Within a few minutes of the doors opening 3 books had been sold to people who had bought ‘Intimations of Evil’ the year before.

This was another successful outing for Cary who views local activity as being essential to developing and supporting his fan base – we wholeheartedly agree.

Engaging Evil continues the unfolding series set on a distant and fabricated world where magic takes the place of technology and dragons and monsters dwell in unlikely places.

Following on from Book 1, Intimations of Evil, we follow the Cat, the priest, the princess, the ghazi, the tribesman and others, as they leave civilisation and enter the wilds and discover the hidden village of Mousehole, where lurks bandits and indescribable evil.

Engaging Evil is the second book of a series that sees worlds reshaped and myths confounded in a far-flung fantasy adventure.

Well done to Elizabeth Lang of EL Designs, and artist Catherine Archer-Wills for the spectacular cover.
