We're launching the Book Tour for THE TEMPLE OF THE EXPLODING HEAD OMNIBUS by Ren Garcia

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Author Interview

What inspired you to write this series and compile all the installments together in one volume?

My book series is a distillation of all the things I loved as a kid, as well as many of the things that frightened me. I originally wrote the story as one large book, however, I was compelled by my original publisher to break it up into three smaller books. The compilation is how I intended it to be.

What do you love the most about this series?

I love the events that unfold in the book. I love coming up with odd things and working them into the fabric of the story. I also love how the universe expanded in this one.

What challenged you about writing it? 

I had a completely different story in mind when I began writing--the finished product is nothing like how I thought it would go, but that's fairly normal for me. I don't outline anything, I just write, and as a result, I often have changes of direction that require modification to the story as I go along.

Which character do you most relate to and why? 

I relate to all of them to one degree or another. There's a little bit of me in all of them.

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?

I hope the readers will feel at one with the story, that even though it's a whacked-out sci-fi fantasy, that they will feel like the various characters are close friends and that the world I created feels familiar and homey.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not writing? 

I enjoy playing volleyball and ice hockey, hanging out with my wife and walking my dogs. Standard suburban stuff.

The Temple of the Exploding Head Omnibus
(League of Elder)
By Ren Garcia
Science Fiction, Fantasy
Paperback & ebook, 1413 Pages
April 19, 2018 by Hydra Publishing

Three books in one:
The Dead Held Hands
The Machine
The Temple of the Exploding Head

Starfarers and explorers, the League settled on Kana thousands of years ago. They found it to be a paradise, a perfect, virtually uninhabited planet waiting just for them in the cradle of space.
Lovely Kana … it was too good to be true …

But, all was not as it seemed. Simmering beneath the ground was a demented god who had soaked Kana in blood for untold ages, luring in victims, lying to them, and rejoicing in their suffering as they died at the hands of his dark angels.

And there will be blood again … From his Temple in the ground, the Horned God stirs.
When Lord Kabyl of Blanchefort, a young man troubled by the weight of the world, dares give his heart to a girl from a mysterious ancient household, one that pre-dates the League itself, he comes to know the shadows of the past that hover over her.

He comes to know of the Horned God, and for love he is destined to face him. All roads lead to the Temple of the Exploding Head, a place of evil and death, rooted in the ancient past, but also tied to the distant future.

“We were evil once,” she said, “and the gods are still punishing us…”
