To The Death reaches its knife-edge-sharp halfway point, with the full release of Episode 9 (now LIVE and available to download/view). In “Hunter-Hunted” Dryagin and Kraken square off for the last time, in a battle Dryagin can’t win… without help. And, meanwhile, another pivotal character makes his (its?) debut, launching To The Death’s most harrowing Episodes yet. Wait till you meet… Killatoa! Twists, turns and gut-punch shocks abound. And from here, the ride only gets wilder. And don’t forget, Episodes 1-8 are still available to view, and Episode 1 is FREE-TO-VIEW. http://to-the-death.com/episodes/

The hits keep on coming for our beleaguered hero in Part 8 of To The Death, which is now LIVE and available to download/view on the site. All Dryagin wants to do is get home to his wife and son, the life he left behind on Earth, but the realisation is dawning that neither are waiting for him – thanks to the Triumvirate’s clinical dismantling of everything he held dear. Even the loyalties of his own Pacifier unit have been savagely divided, and the only one Dryagin can rely on now – is himself. The Simon Furman/Geoff Senior action heats up to fever pitch in “Inferno”. And don’t forget – Parts 1-7 are still available to download/view (with Part 1 FREE-TO-VIEW). And anyone who subscribes by Dec 5th gets thrown into the hat for our special ORIGINS prize draw (see previous post). Miraculously, our (not) Black Friday discount code (TTD15SUB) is still valid! Are we good to you or what? http://to-the-death.com/episodes/

CANCELLATION. Huge apologies to anyone coming to see myself and Geoff Senior at For the Love of Sci-Fi in Manchester next weekend, but due to work commitments and various pre-Xmas deadline pile-ups (not least of which is the fairly punishing weekly schedule we’ve set ourselves on To The Death) we’ve regretfully had to pull out. We’re really gutted not to be there, but the previously announced PRIZE DRAW for our loyal subscribers will still go ahead (just not at the con itself). We’ll be back on the road in January, at Banbury’s Film, TV & Comic Con. Promise.

Episode 7 of TO THE DEATH is now live! The shattering digital sci-fi magnum opus from Simon Furman and Geoff Senior continues at a breathless pace… as Dryagin’s Pacifier platoon is torn apart from within, and Dryagin himself finds himself on the moon’s endangered species list (which, let’s face it, is pretty short). Hunted, wounded, it looks like the bitter end… but if Dryagin dies White Noise’s dream of averting global catastrophe on Earth dies with him. Episodes 1-6 are also available to download/view on the site (with Episode 1 FREE-TO-VIEW!) http://to-the-death.com/episodes/

The TO THE DEATH: ORIGINS PRIZE DRAW! Geoff Senior and I will be at For The Love of Sci-Fi convention in Manchester in a couple of weeks (or slightly less – the weekend of Dec 3rd/4th), and we’re celebrating the success of To The Death with a special prize draw. Some of our earliest works are going into the prize draw pot – including Geoff’s very early Starblazers, my first ever bit of writing, “Beware The Werewolf” in Scream #8 (1984) and one of our most seismic early collaborations: Transformers #113 (the first appearance of Death’s Head). All signed of course! The names of all our loyal TTD subscribers (and anyone who subscribes between now and then!) will go into the pot – and we’ll nab a famous face on the Saturday to do the draw itself (so it’s all above board), and publish the names of the winners over on the To The Death Facebook page. http://fortheloveofsci-fi.com

Episode 6 of To The Death, the searing dystopian sci-fi opus from Simon Furman and Geoff Senior, is now LIVE and ready to download/view on the site: http://to-the-death.com/episodes/. In “Industrial Strength”: Deadlock on the moon as the embittered Helium Miners dig in, the Cyber-warriors go ballistic, and Dryagin makes a stand – a decision that changes everything, and maybe precipitates the beginning of his end. Plus, Deacon Snow regrets! We’re one-third of the way through our action epic, and if you thought it’s been a relentless ride so far… you ain’t seen nothing yet!

To The Death Episode 5: “The Art of White Noise” is now LIVE and ready to download/view on the site (as of course are Episodes 1-4). On the lunar surface, Dryagin’s Pacifier Squad hit back, while more is revealed about the mysterious Deacon Snow and the seditious White Noise. But unknown to Dryagin he’s been marked for death by the Triumvirate, and his executioner may be closer at hand than he realises. All episodes (so far), including the free-to-view Episode 1, are available here: http://to-the-death.com/episodes/
