Launch of ‘Clearing the Web’.

Media Release

Tasmanian author Cary J Lenehan invites you to the release of his novel Clearing the Web, the third book to come out from the Warriors of Vhast series through IFWG Publishing Australia.

This epic fantasy series follows the continuing exploits of a gender diverse group brought together under mysterious circumstances: the princess, the secret policeman, the huntress, the priest, the former slave, the soldier, the assassin, the hobgoblin, the Dwarven shepherd, the horse barbarian, and the mage, are sent on a world-spanning quest.

After facing individual challenges, joining and setting out (in Intimations of Evil), they locate and defeat a bandit village, freeing its slaves (Engaging Evil). Now they are on the next stage of their journey, seeking to destroy those hidden behind the slavers.

Clearing the Web is a part of a richly described world of stories with a total of eight books to be published by IFWG Australia, as well as over fifty short stories and novellas written to date.

Come and help launch this volume of the continuing tale and take the opportunity to ask questions of the author about his world, its plants and animals, its towns, and even its recipes.

Cary is a former soldier, University tutor, public servant, fishmonger, and cab driver who has made Tasmania his home for the last thirty years. Along the way he has taught people to use everything from short swords to rocket launchers and yet still grows Tasmanian native plants (and cooks with them) in his spare time.

A New Section

A new section has been added to the webpage. This is an explanation of the religions to be found on Vhast. As they are seen,  even if they have the same focus, they are often significantly different to the way are they are seen today on Terra. Even written words see a drift over time as they are copied and re-copied.

Each month new parts will be added to this new page.

Over time more background pages like this will be added.

2nd Edition of Intimations.

Thanks to IFWG there is a second edition of my first book (which means that it is back in print again).  I am excited by the changes that have been made. These are all stylistic and there is no change to the actual story line. I think that it is far better written and a stronger tale now.

Hopefully there will be some feedback on Amazon.


This month (June 2017) saw me at the National SF Convention in Melbourne where I was very happy to see some readers and chat about what is happening in Vhast. Feel free to ask me questions either through here or via the Cary J Lenehan Facebook page.

More stories, recipes, tarot cards etc are coming out through Patreon each month and the stories (at least) have now been completed out to the end of December 2018.

All is on track for Book 3 (Clearing the Web) to come out at the end of 2017.

Thank you for your continued interest in the books and remember that they are available through the Tasmanian State Library as well as by purchase,
