At the moment, I am just completing the third book in the Brother Wulf Series. The second one is out soon  (6th May).  This is different from what I have done previously but has worked out even better than I hoped. I do not plan much in advance, usually discovering the plot as I write. But this time I did have some idea of the direction in which I wanted to move the characters and story.

The first book, ‘Brother Wulf’ is set firmly in the world of the spook. A young monk called Wulf goes for help to Chipenden and he eventually gets the aid of Tom Ward and Alice to fight a dangerous enemy from the dark.

In the second book, ‘Wulf’s Bane’, Wulf begins as a spook’s apprentice but gradually learns the truth about himself. He has powers in advance of those gifted to a seventh son of a seventh son. Those powers will help him fight the dark but they are also a threat to his own life. If he does not learn to control them properly, he will be destroyed. We are seeing the birth of a fantasy superhero.

In the third book (as yet, it has no title) we see Wulf in action against the most formidable enemy that has ever come out of the dark. The fiend was destroyed in ‘The Spook’s Revenge’ but now he is back and the County is ravaged by dark entities so terrible that even quisitors, with their bands of armed followers, dare not venture out. But there is a new type of hunter of the dark. His name is Wulf.

It is a pity that I can’t visit schools and give talks at the moment. But I have a new system. I have made a number of short films (about four so far and each is about 15 minutes long) for classes to watch. Then they send me their questions and I make another film of my answers that they can also watch in class.

So, if you attend a school and want your class to be involved, please get your teacher to contact me via the email address on this site.

  1. I got goosebumps just by reading that the fiend is coming back! SO PUMPED FOR THE THIRD EVEN THO THE SECOND HASNT CAME OUT YET!!!

  2. Do you think Brother Wulf, could be made into a longer series? Maybe not quite as many books as The Spook’s have, but more than three? (If Brother Wulf did have as many books that The Spook’s do, that would be amazing!)

  3. Why does ebook format not available in Philippines?not in kindle,kobo,hive or google play?
    I cant wait to read it😭

    • My guess is that it is something to do with territories set by the USA and Amazon respecting the international publishers’ wishes.

  4. Hello Mr. Delaney,

    First off, thank you for publishing these books over the years. Although I am now 21, these books were a great source of entertainment for me growing up and it helped forge an interest in reading that’s stuck with me ever since.

    Forgive me if this has been asked before as I am unaware if so, but are there any plans in the future for a cartoon adaptation? Specifically the Japanese medium of anime? I feel like many of your magic systems, characters, and mythologies would flourish in any style of animation.

    Thanks again and I hope you are doing well!

    • There has been talk of some sort of graphic novel but that may have been interrupted by Covid. I will try and find out where that discussion has got to. I am glad to hear you have enjoyed the books and they fostered an interest in reading. It was my love of reading that encouraged me to write.

  5. Hello Mr. Delaney , I am a big fan of the Spook series and I wanted to thank you for writing this series. I ve come to the book Wulf bane that I cant buy yet, but I m not giving up , I love the series too much to give it up and I hope you continue the series for a long time to come. And if you can please tell me something about the third book in Brother Wulf, if its not a big deal. P.S. Sorry if the whole message is not correct , I use a translation application because I am Romanian and I don t know English. Please answer me when you can.

    • This is what I wrote about Book three in the blog on this site : In the third book (as yet, it has no title) we see Wulf in action against the most formidable
      enemy that has ever come out of the dark. The fiend was destroyed in ‘The Spook’s Revenge’ but now he is back and the County is ravaged by dark entities so terrible that even
      quisitors, with their bands of armed followers, dare not venture out.
