Death Works

 

This is the Death Works page – obviously.

The Death Works Trilogy (as it now stands, though I am writing a fourth book, just slowly, slowly) can be found in this neat omnibus edition.

Within which you’ll find the novels Death Most Definite, Managing Death, and the Business of Death.

There is a choose your own adventure Street Read called Training Day where you can pretend you’re a Pomp on their first day. It’s available here, and sits in between the chronology of The Business of Death and The Memory of Death – so there are spoilers.DEATH

The cool thing is that you can actually download the map and walk around Brisbane (or play it at home, there’s music and everything!).

There is a novella somewhat cheekily titled Death Works 4: The Memory of Death out in February 2014.

It looks like this:

image001-18You can buy this here.

They’re about Death, well, working for Death. Death is a business, and it can get pretty rough. It’s set in Brisbane, Australia. There are explosions, the Underworld, and a vast cosmic threat that is a little bit Lovecrafty. You’ll encounter Stirrers, and all sorts of sundry evil.

Someone once described the stories to me as the literary version of crack – I reckon that sums the books up nicely.

You can buy the omnibus at Avid Reader (the bookstore where I work).

Or Amazon (Online Bookselling Place)

Or Barnes & Noble

Or iBooks

Or wherever you would like (Pulp Fiction also comes to mind in the city of Brisbane).

    Hi Trent,

    Just read your first two novels thought they where great I loved that fact that it was a very original ideal. Very to read the conclusion of the series, I understand it is comming out in 2011 any idea on the month?

    Keep up the great work Ben.

  3. Trent Jamieson says:

    Thanks, Ben!

    Bk 3 is coming out in 2011. In Australia it’ll be April, and in the US and UK Sep.

    Was at the University of Washington bookstore a couple days ago and noticed Managing Death sitting on a pile so I went to the shelf and found Death Most Definite and couldn’t put it down.

    Going back for the second ASAP! I look forward to an adventure in your imagination again ^_^

  5. Trent Jamieson says:

    So glad you liked it. I’m working on a fourth book now, and having a ball.

    Hello Michael,

    thank you. I’m still chipping away at the next book – but so, so slowly! – when it’s finished I’ll shout out very loudly, believe me! Who knows, I might get over to England some day.

    Congrats on the Death Works books. I am a huge bookworm when it comes to fantasy books. i must admit that up until now all of my books have been by female authors but after reading a blurp out of Death Most Definate I was hooked. I’ve read all three now and I am now waiting eagerly for the next one.
    Well done.Awesome books.

  12. Trent says:

    Thanks, Nessa. So glad you liked them. And thanks for letting me know!

    I have just finished the Death Works Trilogy…….the only word I can use to describe it is superb !…..I haven’t read anything near as good as this since Stephen King’s The Stand. Your innate sense of humor shines through your written word. I am glad I got to read the entire saga at one time. Stay true to your vision, you have baited us with Lissa, Tim, Steve, and Mr D……I know there is more…bring it on or “Run”….

  14. Trent says:

    Thanks, Karl. One way or another there will be more of this story. I’m so glad you liked it.

    Trent.

  15. Dave says:

    I am absolutly with Karl on this. The ending of book 3 screams fo more and I am one of those guys who hates bad endings for protagonists. You can do all you want to them but if you kill of some important characters (and never the main one or only temporarily) you gotta replace them with great ones. Suppose you let the love interest be killed after 2+ books of character developement and dont replace him/her with someone as interesting as the dead one? I shudder…

    Please do not have another apocalypse coming. After something like this I personally like a filler book (They are not always bad) where the protagonist can muscle around being full of himself and beat up some mooks who dont have a chance but arent even aware of it. :D

  16. Trent says:

    Dave,

    I think you’ll like what’s coming. Which I’ll let everyone know about when it finds a home, or I decide to publish it here as an xmas present for my long suffering Death Works fans. Trust me, I have a new chunk of story already written, and some stuff that I think people are really going to enjoy.

  17. helen says:

    OMGosh!!! just finished all three book in the Death Works trilogy, and i’m really wanting the story to continue, and that Steve will not die and the character be over… I hope you publish book 4 sooooonnnnnn, pleassseeeeeee.

    Thanks
    Helen

  18. Trent says:

    Thanks, Helen.

    There is more story, trust me! I’ve written a novella that follows on from the books, and it will be part of a series. I’m just deciding what to do with it, my problem is that I work on so many things at once! I’m so glad you liked the first three!

  19. Tracy says:

    I just finished The Memory of Death…admittedly I smuggled my Kindle into work today and took a few “breaks” during the day. It was fantastic, I loved the bit switched up style this time around. My thoughts are 1. Thank you SO MUCH for giving us more Steven de Selby! and 2. When does #5 release as I’d like to secure the day off for devouring it. ;-)

  20. Trent says:

    Thanks for letting me know, Tracy! So glad you enjoyed it.

  21. Jake says:

    Just finished Memory of Death, gotta say I’m pretty sad for Steven at this point :( Seems like everything he left behind has changed for the worst. Can’t wait for the next book, hopefully things start looking up for him.

  22. Trent says:

    Jake, I can promise you adventure, new worlds, and things maybe looking up! (or maybe not) Thank you for reading.
