Andy Remic is a British author of thrillers, science fiction and military science fiction. His first three novels, Spiral (2003), Quake (2004) and Warhead (2005), were published by Orbit Books (a former division of Little, Brown & Co). His fourth novel, War Machine, was published in 2007 by Solaris Books. This was followed by BioHell, Hardcore and Cloneworld, also in the Combat K universe.
Born in North Manchester, he is married with two children. He is a former English teacher, but now writes full-time. He occasionally visits science fiction conventions, as was seen at Novacon 37 where he did a reading from his new novel followed by Q&A, and was on a panel with Charles Stross, Eric Brown and Ian Watson.
He also wrote the Spiral series of novels for Orbit Books.
He also currently writes fast-paced fantasy novels in the style of David Gemmell, for Angry Robot Books. These are the Clockwork Vampire Chronicles, beginning with Kell's Legend, Soul Stealers and the upcoming Vampire Warlords.
Andy writes and occasionally acts in films for the UK-based independent film company Grunge Films. He has made film promos for the novels Kell's Legend and Hardcore, as well as a short film, Chemical Man, that has been accepted into several film festivals internationally.
Andy Remic wrote a number of computer games, including several text adventures, for the ZX Spectrum in the 1980s and early 1990s. Some of these appeared on the cover-mounted cassettes that accompanied Crash magazine, and others were sold by mail order. Many of his games were produced under the name Psychedelic Hedgehog Software.
Remic revisited his Spectrum past in 2009 when he created a graphical text adventure to accompany his new novel, Biohell.
In 2011, Andy started his own ebook publishing company, Anarchy Books, dealing with digital "projects" that contain novels, albums, video games and films, so that entertainment junkies can "pick and mix" their experience.
