Roger Zelazny takes us down ROUTE 666 in France…


Mnémos/Hélios has released a new French edition of Roger Zelazny‘s classic DAMNATION ALLEY! Published in France as ROUTE 666, here’s the synopsis…

Tanner est la derniere chance de la ville de Boston. A la tête d’un convoi de véhicules blindé, équipés de roquettes et autres canons, il va devoir traverser le pays en suivant la route 666, la route de l’enfer sur terre…

Mnémos has also published Zelazny’s L’ÎLE DES MORTS (ISLE OF THE DEAD). DAMNATION ALLEY has also been published in Germany by Heyne, as STRAßE DER VERDAMMNIS. Here’s the English-language synopsis for DAMNATION ALLEY

Hell Tanner isn’t the sort of guy you’d mistake for a hero: he’s a fast-driving car thief, a smuggler, and a stone-cold killer. He’s also expendable — at least in the eyes of the Secretary of Traffic for the Nation of California. Tanner doesn’t care much for those eyes. You’d also never mistake Hell Tanner for a humanitarian.

Facing life in prison for his various crimes, he’s given a choice; rot away his remaining years in a tiny jail cell, or drive cross-country and deliver a case of antiserum to the plague-ridden people of Boston, Massachusetts… if anyone is still alive there to receive it, that is. The chance of a full pardon does wonders for getting his attention. And don’t mistake this mission of mercy for any kind of normal road trip — not when there are radioactive storms, hordes of carnivorous beasts, and giant, mutated scorpions to be found along every deadly mile between Los Angeles and the East Coast. But then, this is no normal part of America, you see. This is DAMNATION ALLEY…

Reopening Aurora Teagarden’s cases in the UK…


Tomorrow, Piatkus are re-issuing Charlaine Harris‘s Aurora Teagarden series in the UK! To be graced with new jackets to match the style of the two latest novels, ALL THE LITTLE LIARS and SLEEP LIKE A BABY, we think you’ll agree that they look rather great. In case you’re unfamiliar with the series, here’s the synopsis for the first novel, REAL MURDERS

Charlaine Harris introduces a librarian whose bookish bent for murder gets her involved in a real-life killing spree…

Lawrenceton, Georgia, may be a growing suburb of Atlanta, but it’s still a small town at heart. Librarian Aurora ‘Roe’ Teagarden grew up there and knows more than enough about her fellow townsfolk, including which ones share her interest in the darker side of human nature…

With those fellow crime buffs, Roe belongs to a club called Real Murders, which meets once a month to analyze famous cases. It’s a harmless pastime — until the night she finds a member dead, killed in a manner that eerily resembles the crime the club was about to discuss.

As other brutal “copycat” killings follow, Roe will have to uncover the person behind the terrifying game, one that casts all the members of Real Murders, herself included, as prime suspects-or potential victims…

Charlaine Harris is also the author of the hugely popular Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood urban fantasy series, published in the UK by Gollancz. The final book in that series, THE COMPLETE SOOKIE STACKHOUSE STORIES, is due out on November 23rd, also published by Gollancz.

WHISPERS UNDERGROUND heard in Poland…


Ben Aaronovitch‘s WHISPERS UNDERGROUND is out now in Poland! The third novel in the author’s best-selling, critically-acclaimed Peter Grant series, is published by MAG as SZEPTY POD ZIEMIĄ. Here’s the synopsis…

Nazywam się Peter Grant i jestem detektywem posterunkowym w potężnej armii sprawiedliwości znanej jako policja londyńska (tudzież psiarnia). Szkolę się także na czarodzieja, jestem pierwszym takim uczniem od pięćdziesięciu lat. Oficjalnie pracuję w wydziale do zwalczania przestępstw gospodarczych i innych, w jednostce dziewiątej, znanej też jako Szaleństwo i jako jednostka, o której grzeczni, dobrze wychowani gliniarze nie rozmawiają w kulturalnym towarzystwie.

Od poniedziałku mam okazję zająć się prawdziwą policyjną robotą. Niezidentyfikowana Ofiara została zadźgana na torach metra przy stacji Baker Street. Obecność magii niewykluczona.

Niezidentyfikowana Ofiara okazuje się synem amerykańskiego senatora i zanim zdążysz powiedzieć „międzynarodowy incydent” do sprawy posterunkowego detektywa Granta dołącza agentka FBI Kimberley Reynolds.

A w ciemnych tunelach londyńskiego metra, pośród pogrzebanych rzek i wiktoriańskich rynsztoków niesie się szept o zemście zza grobu.

Najnowsza sprawa posterunkowego detektywa Granta zaraz się wtoczy na śliskie tory…

Also available from MAG today, new editions of the first two novels in the series: RIVERS OF LONDON and MOON OVER SOHO, published as RZEKI LONDYNU and KSIĘŻYC NAD SOHO, respectively.

These three novels are published in the UK by Gollancz, and in the US by Del Rey. Here’s the English-language synopsis for WHISPERS UNDERGROUND

A WHOLE NEW REASON TO MIND THE GAP

It begins with a dead body at the far end of Baker Street tube station, all that remains of American exchange student James Gallagher — and the victim’s wealthy, politically powerful family is understandably eager to get to the bottom of the gruesome murder. The trouble is, the bottom — if it exists at all — is deeper and more unnatural than anyone suspects… except, that is, for London constable and sorcerer’s apprentice Peter Grant. With Inspector Nightingale, the last registered wizard in England, tied up in the hunt for the rogue magician known as “the Faceless Man,” it’s up to Peter to plumb the haunted depths of the oldest, largest, and — as of now — deadliest subway system in the world.

At least he won’t be alone. No, the FBI has sent over a crack agent to help. She’s young, ambitious, beautiful… and a born-again Christian apt to view any magic as the work of the devil. Oh yeah — that’s going to go well.

Gollancz has published all six of the novels in the Peter Grant series to date, as well as the new novella, THE FURTHEST STATION. DAW Books has published books 4-6 in North America, and Subterranean Press publishes the novella.

But while you can take the London copper out of London you can’t take the London out of the copper.

Travelling west with Beverley Brook, Peter soon finds himself caught up in a deep mystery and having to tackle local cops and local gods. And what’s more all the shops are closed by 4pm…

Nach einem Autounfall wacht Corwin, seiner Erinnerungen beraubt, in einer obskuren Klinik im Staate New York auf – er ist auf der Erde gestrandet, die zu den Schattenwelten gehört. Schnell findet Corwin heraus, dass er Teil der großen Königsfamilie von Amber ist, und er unternimmt alles, um in sein Reich zurückzukehren und seinen Bruder Eric vom Thron zu stürzen.

Prinz Corwin lebte nach einem Gedächtnisverlust auf der Erde, ohne zu wissen, wer er ist. Als eines Tages ein Mitglied seiner Familie versucht, ihn zu töten, beginnt er, nach seiner Vergangenheit zu forschen.

Und so setzt er alles daran, in das Königreich Amber zurückzukehren. Bald schon erfährt er, dass seine Verwandtschaft über einige sehr ungewöhnliche Kräfte verfügt. Alle Nachfahren des Königshauses können zwischen Amber, den Schattenwelten und dem Chaos hin- und herreisen, indem sie die Realität manipulieren. Sie benutzen magische Spielkarten, um zu kommunizieren und sich an andere Orte zu versetzen. Aber vor allem sind sie alle in einen erbarmungslosen Kampf um den Thron verstrickt. Und nicht zuletzt muss das Geheimnis um das Verschwinden ihres königlichen Vaters Oberon aufgedeckt werden.

First published in 1970, here’s the English-language synopsis…

Amber, the one real world, wherein all others, including our own Earth, are but Shadows.

Awakening in an Earth hospital unable to remember who he is or where he came from, Corwin is amazed to learn that he is one of the sons of Oberon, King of Amber, and is the rightful successor to the crown in a parallel world.

Amber burns in Corwin’s blood. Exiled on Shadow Earth for centuries, the prince is about to return to Amber to make a mad and desperate rush upon the throne. From Arden to the blood-slippery Stairway into the Sea, the air is electrified with the powers of Eric, Random, Bleys, Caine, and all the princes of Amber whom Corwin must overcome.

Hebrew edition of CENTRAL STATION out now!


This week, Yaniv Publishing has published a Hebrew edition of Lavie Tidhar‘s award-winning, critically-acclaimed novel CENTRAL STATION! Published as תחנה מרכזית, here’s the English-language synopsis…

A worldwide diaspora has left a quarter of a million people at the foot of a space station. Cultures collide in real life and virtual reality. Life is cheap, and data is cheaper.

When Boris Chong returns to Tel Aviv from Mars, much has changed. Boris’s ex-lover is raising a strangely familiar child who can tap into the datastream of a mind with the touch of a finger. His cousin is infatuated with a robotnik — a damaged cyborg soldier who might as well be begging for parts. His father is terminally-ill with a multigenerational mind-plague. And a hunted data-vampire has followed Boris to where she is forbidden to return.

Rising above them is Central Station, the interplanetary hub between all things: the constantly shifting Tel Aviv; a powerful virtual arena, and the space colonies where humanity has gone to escape the ravages of poverty and war. Everything is connected by the Others, powerful alien entities who, through the Conversation — a shifting, flowing stream of consciousness — are just the beginning of irrevocable change.

At Central Station, humans and machines continue to adapt, thrive… and even evolve.

CENTRAL STATION is published in English by Tachyon Publications. Here are just a few of the great reviews the novel has received so far…

‘Tidhar’s prose draws the reader in, bringing this world to life with ease… Tidhar is reminiscent of an early William Gibson, not just in sharing that short and punchy style, but in his ability to create a world where the speculation is believable enough to fit seamlessly into the narrative; somehow, despite being set centuries into the future, it feels just around the corner… cement[s] Lavie Tidhar as one of science fiction’s great voices, an author who creates scenarios and characters that feel destined to become classics, ones that readers will be happy to revisit time and time again. It’s a compelling collection that mixes the epic and the intimate, one that succeeds at being profound, incredibly moving and, quite simply, stunning.’ (10/10) Starburst 

CENTRAL STATION is without question the best assemblage of short stories I’ve read in recent memory. Sublimely sensual, emotionally moreish, and composed with crystalline clarity irrespective of its incredible complexity.’ Tor.com

‘[Tidhar] has created a textured and original future that echoes real historical and economic tensions while satisfying veteran readers with deliberate echoes of classic science fiction… Deeply humane.’ Chicago Tribune

‘Magnificently blends literary and speculative elements in this streetwise mosaic novel set under the towering titular spaceport… Tidhar gleefully mixes classic SF concepts with prose styles and concepts that recall the best of world literature. The byways of Central Station ring with dusty life, like the bruising, bustling Cairo streets depicted by Naguib Mahfouz. Characters wrestle with problems of identity forged under systems of oppression, much as displaced Easterners and Westerners do in the novels of Orhan Pamuk. And yet this is unmistakably SF. Readers of all persuasions will be entranced.’ Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

‘It is just this side of a masterpiece — short, restrained, lush — and the truest joy of it is in the way Tidhar scatters brilliant ideas like pennies on the sidewalk.’ NPR

‘The stories include some of Tidhar’s most beautiful prose, and his future Tel Aviv is among the most evocative settings in recent SF… Somehow, CENTRAL STATION combines a cultural sensibility too long invisible in SF with a sensibility which is nothing but classic SF, and the result is a rather elegant suite of tales.’ Locus

New Spanish edition of RIVERS OF LONDON out now!


Oz Editorial has published a new Spanish edition of Ben Aaronovitch‘s best-selling, critically-acclaimed first Peter Grant novel, RIVERS OF LONDON!

En Londres, la magia está fuera de control

El joven Peter Grant era un agente de policía novato más hasta que un día, durante la investigación de un terrible asesinato, recibe cierta información de un testigo ocular muy especial: un fantasma. Tras descubrir que la magia existe, Grant ingresará en un departamento secreto de Scotland Yard que se encarga de las investigaciones sobrenaturales y, junto al enigmático inspector Nightingale, llevará a cabo tareas tan singulares como negociar treguas entre el dios y la diosa del Támesis, desenterrar tumbas en Covent Garden y perseguir a un espíritu maligno y vengativo que está sembrando el caos en la ciudad.

RIVERS OF LONDON, as well as the other Peter Grant novels, are published in the UK by Gollancz. Here’s the English-language synopsis for the novel…

My name is Peter Grant and until January I was just probationary constable in that mighty army for justice known to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (and as the Filth to everybody else). My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit — we do paperwork so real coppers don’t have to — and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May. Then one night, in pursuance of a murder inquiry, I tried to take a witness statement from someone who was dead but disturbingly voluable, and that brought me to the attention of Inspector Nightingale, the last wizard in England.

Now I’m a Detective Constable and a trainee wizard, the first apprentice in fifty years, and my world has become somewhat more complicated: nests of vampires in Purley, negotiating a truce between the warring god and goddess of the Thames, and digging up graves in Covent Garden… and there’s something festering at the heart of the city I love, a malicious vengeful spirit that takes ordinary Londoners and twists them into grotesque mannequins to act out its drama of violence and despair.

The spirit of riot and rebellion has awakened in the city, and it’s falling to me to bring order out of chaos — or die trying.

[Incidentally, at the time of writing, RIVERS OF LONDON is part of Amazon UK’s Autumn Kindle Sale, at only 99p!]

The series is also published in the US by Del Rey and DAW Books, in Germany by DTV, in France by J’ai Lu, and widely in other translations.
