On Ronin Writer (, Heermann's blog about the writing life, he posts an ongoing series of in-depth interviews with authors in a variety of genres.


"Travis Heermann's THE HAMMER FALLS is a raucous, entertaining, action-packed riot. Like his characters, Heermann punches hard from beginning to end, a skilled storyteller who knows exactly what he's doing. THE HAMMER FALLS reads like pure pulp--but like Philip José Farmer, Dashiell Hammett, and the other pulp masters, Heermann brings real heart and depth to his characters. Amidst the heavy-hitting violence, there's care and comedy and endearing sacrifice. Do not miss this book." - J.L. Forrest, author of the Songs at the End of the World series

"Take WWE and MMA, amp the violence to a bone-breaking, body-busting eleven, and you've got The Hammer Falls. But wash away the bloodstains and you'll surprisingly find yourself clobbered by camaraderie and heart." - Warren Hammond, author of the KOP series and Denver Moon

"Fast-paced, action-packed, and full of heart. The Hammer Falls will have you praying Ridley Scott gives this one a home on the silver screen. He and Heermann are the only two capable of delivering the perfect balance of gladiatorial action and high-stakes science fiction." - Joshua Viola, award-winning editor of Nightmares Unhinged and Cyber World

"A body slam of high-tech mayhem... Travis Heermann delivers one gut punch after another in this science-fiction TKO." - Mario Acevedo, author of the Felix Gomez detective vampire series

"There are books that pack a punch, and then there's The Hammer Falls. With pugilistic, pit-fighting ferocity--and a surprising human core--Travis Heermann throws science fiction into the squared circle and watches it writhe in excitement. Grab a ringside seat and hold on tight." - Jason Heller, Hugo Award-winning author of Strange Stars and editor of Cyber World
