Brandon Sanderson’s EDGEDANCER is coming to the UK!


On October 18th, Gollancz are due to publish hardcover, eBook and audio editions of Brandon Sanderson‘s EDGEDANCER in the UK! A novella set in the author’s Stormlight Archives series, here’s the synopsis…

Three years ago, Lift asked a goddess to stop her from growing older–a wish she believed was granted.

Now, in Edgedancer, the barely teenage nascent Knight Radiant finds that time stands still for no one. Although the young Azish emperor granted her safe haven from an executioner she knows only as Darkness, court life is suffocating the free-spirited Lift, who can’t help heading to Yeddaw when she hears the relentless Darkness is there hunting people like her with budding powers.

The downtrodden in Yeddaw have no champion, and Lift knows she must seize this awesome responsibility.

The eye-catching cover for the book, above, is by long-time Sanderson UK cover artist Sam Green. Gollancz has already published the first three full-length novels in the Stormlight Archive series: THE WAY OF KINGS, WORDS OF RADIANCE and OATHBRINGER — all of which also have covers by Sam Green:

Brandon’s next novel, SKYWARD, will also be published by Gollancz later this year (November 6th). Here’s the cover:

IN TRUTH AND CLAW, Mick Oberon’s on the case…


Ari Marmell‘s fourth Mick Oberon novel, IN TRUTH AND CLAW, is out tomorrow in the US! Published by Titan Books, here’s the synopsis…

Mick Oberon may look like just another 1930s private detective, but beneath the fedora and the overcoat, he’s got pointy ears and he’s packing a wand. A series of brutal murders is sweeping Chicago, baffling both the local police and the Seelie Court, who sense an aura of corruption and death has touched Mick himself. When Mick’s associates become targets, and a vampire appears in his office, Mick is drawn into his most dangerous hunt yet.

Titan has also published the first three novels in the series in the UK and US: HOT LEAD, COLD IRON, HALLOW POINT and DEAD TO RITES. Here are some of the reviews the series has received so far…

‘In this gripping fantastical investigation, Marmell (The Goblin Corps) creates an engaging world and an unlikely hero…The potent mix of gangsters, magic, Fae politics, and a strega on the warpath makes for a ride that never touches the brakes. Marmell expertly maximizes the thrills, leaving the reader with a lingering desire for a magic wand and a glass of warm milk.’Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on HOT LEAD, COLD IRON

HOT LEAD, COLD IRON is as hard boiled a detective drama as anything written by Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler or Mickey Spillane, and Marmell captures the vernacular of the period wonderfully… HOT LEAD, COLD IRON could easily have been published in any one of the popular pulp detective magazines of the ’30s and yet it’s pace and characterizations are undoubtedly contemporary… Ari Marmell will soon be crowned the foremost purveyor of Macabre Noir.’Starburst 

‘Irresistibly entertaining… It’s among the best urban fantasy novels I’ve ever read.’Rising Shadow on HALLOW POINT

‘It’s a fascinating concept, and a solid foundation for yet another gripping story… a highly enjoyable ride; the writing takes its reader into the heart of every scene…It’s a great read, reinvigorating the tropes of two genres to enable them to rise above cliché status. With final revelations that imply a larger conspiracy, it seems Marmell has plenty more up his sleeve for his hero, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for Mick Oberon in the future.‘ — Starburst on HALLOW POINT

‘The third entry… in the inventive series about a 1930s private eye who also happens to be one of the Fae mixes supernatural investigations and Al Capone’s Chicago for an irresistible combo.’Library Journal on DEAD TO RITES

Brandon Sanderson’s SNAPSHOT out now in the UK!


Today, Gollancz publishes Brandon Sanderson‘s latest novella in the UK! SNAPSHOT is a noir crime story, now available in hardcover and eBook in the UK, here’s the synopsis…

If you could re-create a day, what dark secrets would you uncover?

A detective thriller in a police beat like no other. Anthony Davis and his partner Chaz are the only real people in a city of 20 million, sent there by court order to find out what happened in the real world 10 days ago so that hidden evidence can be brought to light and located in the real city today.

Within the re-created Snapshot of May 1st, Davis and Chaz are the ultimate authorities. Flashing their badges will get them past any obstruction and overrule any civil right of the dupes around them. But the crimes the detectives are sent to investigate seem like drudgery — until they stumble upon the grisly results of a mass killing that the precinct headquarters orders them not to investigate. That’s one order they have to refuse.

The hunt is on. And though the dupes in the replica city have no future once the Snapshot is turned off, that doesn’t mean that both Davis and Chaz will walk out of it alive tonight.

Gollancz has published almost all of Brandon’s novels and novellas in the UK. You can find out more information on his author page and also here.

Looking SKYWARD in the UK…


Hot on the heels of another recent cover reveal, today we have the UK cover for Brandon Sanderson‘s upcoming SKYWARD: the first book in ‘an epic new series about a girl who dreams of becoming a pilot in a dangerous world at war for humanity’s future.’ Due to be published by Gollancz on November 6th, the cover was unveiled a few minutes ago, via Twitter (with a snazzy animated reveal). Here’s the synopsis…

Spensa’s world has been under attack for hundreds of years. An alien race called the Krell leads onslaught after onslaught from the sky in a never-ending campaign to destroy humankind. Humanity’s only defense is to take to their ships and fight the enemy in the skies. Pilots have become the heroes of what’s left of the human race.

Spensa has always dreamed of being one of them; of soaring above Earth and proving her bravery. But her fate is intertwined with her father’s — a pilot who was killed years ago when he abruptly deserted his team, placing Spensa’s chances of attending flight school somewhere between slim and none.

No one will let Spensa forget what her father did, but she is still determined to fly. And the Krell just made that a possibility. They’ve doubled their fleet, making Spensa’s world twice as dangerous… but their desperation to survive might just take her skyward…

Gollancz has published a broad range of Brandon’s book in the UK — including the best-selling and critically acclaimed Mistborn and Stormlight Archive series, the Reckoners series, the Legion novellas, and a few stand-alone novels (check out some of the covers, below).

Next month, the Cemetery Girl gets HAUNTED…


Next month (August 9th, to be exact), Jo Fletcher Books is due to published the long-awaited conclusion to Charlaine Harris and Christopher Golden‘s Cemetery Girl comic trilogy, HAUNTED! Here’s the synopsis…

Calexa Rose Dunhill died once, just for a moment — but now someone wants her dead permanently…

They call her the Ghost of Dunhill Cemetery, but most people think ‘the Cemetery Girl’ is just a story. In some ways, that’s true. Her chosen name is Calexa Rose Dunhill, but she doesn’t know her real name. When she first arrived here, all she knew was that someone had tried to murder her: they’d dumped her body and left her for dead. Calexa has been hiding out here, afraid to seek out her true identity for fear that her would-be murderer would find her and finish the job. And someone is searching for her… a man named Salazar, who holds the key that will unlock the secrets of Calexa’s past.

Calexa has new secrets as well, including the fact that she was murdered: she did die, if only for a moment — but in that moment, something changed inside her. Now, if someone dies near her, their spirit is drawn to Calexa, drawn into her. It has happened twice before, but now, as her worst fears come true and the killers have found her trail, the third ghost to take up residence in Calexa’s soul will change everything…

The first two books in the series are available in print and digital, also published by Jo Fletcher Books: THE PRETENDERS and INHERITANCE.

Charlaine Harris is the bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood series (Gollancz), the Midnight Texas series (Gollancz), the Aurora Teagarden series (Piatkus) and the upcoming Gunnie Rose series (Piatkus).

A multitude of new Brandon Sanderson covers!


We’re very happy to share with you today some details and covers for three new Brandon Sanderson books coming out later this year! First up, we have the new novella SNAPSHOT

If you could re-create a day, what dark secrets would you uncover?

Anthony Davis and his partner Chaz are the only real people in a city of 20 million, sent there by court order to find out what happened in the real world 10 days ago so that hidden evidence can be brought to light and located in the real city today.

Within the re-created Snapshot of May 1st, Davis and Chaz are the ultimate authorities. Flashing their badges will get them past any obstruction and overrule any civil right of the dupes around them.

That’s one order they have to refuse.

The hunt is on. And though the dupes in the replica city have no future once the Snapshot is turned off, that doesn’t mean that both Davis and Chaz will walk out of it alive tonight.

SNAPSHOT is due to be published in the UK by Gollancz on July 26th, 2016.

Next up, the new novella in the Legion series: LIES OF THE BEHOLDER

A stunning new mystery to be solved by the brilliant and fractured mind of Stephen Leeds.

Already in development for television, Brandon Sanderson’s Legion stories are gripping psychological thrillers, perfect for any fan of speculative fiction. They will resonate particularly strongly with fans of stories about that other tortured crime-fighting genius: Sherlock Holmes.

Legion: Lies of the Beholder is an all-new, action-packed novella starring one of the most fascinating and charismatic heroes ever.

Collecting all three of Brandon’s Legion novellas, we will also get the omnibus THE MANY LIVES OF STEPHEN LEEDS

Stephen Leeds is perfectly sane. It’s his hallucinations who are mad.

A genius of unrivaled aptitude, Stephen can learn any new skill, vocation, or art in a matter of hours. However, to contain all of this, his mind creates hallucinatory people — Stephen calls them aspects — to hold and manifest the information. Wherever he goes, he is joined by a team of imaginary experts to give advice, interpretation, and explanation. He uses them to solve problems… for a price.

His brain is getting a little crowded and the aspects have a tendency of taking on lives of their own. When a company hires him to recover stolen property — a camera that can allegedly take pictures of the past — Stephen finds himself in an adventure crossing oceans and fighting terrorists. What he discovers may upend the foundation of three major world religions?and, perhaps, give him a vital clue into the true nature of his aspects.

Both of these Legion titles are due to be published by Gollancz on September 20th, 2018. The first two Legion novellas — LEGION and SKIN DEEP — have also received slightly tweaked, new covers…

We should have a couple more new covers for upcoming titles by Brandon in the near future, too, so be sure to check back frequently!

Torin Kerr wants to enjoy THE PRIVILEGE OF PEACE, but the universe has other ideas…


THE PRIVILEGE OF PEACE, the third novel in Tanya Huff‘s acclaimed Peacekeeper series is out today in the UK! Published by Titan Books, here’s the synopsis…

Former space marine Torin Kerr returns for one final adventure to save the Confederation in the last book in the military science fiction Peacekeeper trilogy.

Warden Torin Kerr has put her past behind her and built a life away from the war and everything that meant. From the good, from the bad. From the heroics, from the betrayal. She’s created a place and purpose for others like her, a way to use their training for the good of the Confederation. She has friends, family, purpose.

Unfortunately, her past refuses to grant her the same absolution. Big Yellow, the ship form of the plastic aliens responsible for the war, returns. The Silsviss test the strength of the Confederation. Torin has to be Gunnery Sergeant Kerr once again and find a way to keep the peace.

Titan Books has published the previous two novels in the series; as well as the Confederation series, which is set just before (and also features Torin Kerr).

Here are some of the reviews the series has received so far…

‘Huff’s skill at worldbuilding is impressive and, over the course of the Confederation and Peacekeeper series, the author has created a complex, multi-cultural setting in which to explore issues of colonialism and the trauma of war. This is a great series for fans of the TV show Farscape (Torin has definite Aeryn Sun vibes) or Ann Leckie’s Imperial Radch series.’Den of Geek on THE PRIVILEGE OF PEACE

‘Huff’s ability to communicate complex personal dynamics and deep trust through what feels like casual banter establishes the character of the team well for the reader, and solid stretches of reconnaissance and well-tuned moments of violence show Huff’s military SF skills still on point.’ Publishers Weekly on AN ANCIENT PEACE

‘Huff weaves a fast-paced thriller bristling with treachery and intrigue. Fans of military science fiction will enjoy this tense adventure and its intricately constructed setting.’ Publishers Weekly on A PEACE DIVIDED

‘Tanya Huff knows how to tell a rip-roaring, military sci-fi mystery story like few others.’ B&N SciFi & Fantasy Blog on A PEACE DIVIDED

‘It’s a fun novel, pacey, full of banter, with plenty of space for more sequels. Torin Kerr the Justice Department Warden approaches her work and her life differently to Torin Kerr the Marine, but once a Gunnery Sergeant, always a Gunnery Sergeant. Explosions abound!’ Tor.com on A PEACE DIVIDED

Once believed dead and gone, Daemons have found a way back into the world. But the only people who can withstand their assault are spread across the face of the Sfaera.

Free at last from the influence of assassins and emperors alike, the psimancer Winter sails back to her hometown—only to find a new trouble stirring. Meanwhile, the heretic sisters Jane and Cinzia Oden are beset by supernatural attacks. And soon their allies, the vampire-girl Astrid and the former assassin Knot, must face the terrifying Black Matron.

As new battles are fought, the Daemons creep ever closer to freedom, and the legend of the Chaos Queen may soon be made anew.

Genesis Fleet ASCENDANT in the UK!


The second novel in Jack Campbell‘s Genesis Fleet series is published by Titan Books  today in the UK! Here’s the synopsis for ASCENDANT

A young fleet officer and a Marine stand together to defend their colony…

In the three years since former fleet officer Rob Geary and former Marine Mele Darcy led improvised forces to repel attacks on the world of Glenlyon, Old Earth and the Old Colonies have continued to shrink their military forces.

But open warfare erupts once again when Glenlyon tries to force open a trade route. Isolated and alone, Glenlyon places its hope in informal agreements with other worlds also facing attack. But fiercely independent worlds settled by people who wanted to escape higher authority don’t easily agree to such commitments. While politicians try to bring some kind of formal alliance into being, Geary and Darcy once again find themselves fighting desperately to defend their world, hoping they can hold out until help arrives.

‘Fans of David Weber, Ian Douglas, and John Scalzi should find plenty here to enjoy…The action and adventure keep coming and there is a lot to come in the third volume of the series.’SFRevu

AN EASY DEATH… a New Series, and an Eye-Catching Cover!


At the end of last week, Piatkus unveiled the cover for Charlaine Harris‘s next novel! AN EASY DEATH, the first novel in the Gunnie Rose series, is due to be published in the UK on October 4th, 2018. At the moment, Piatkus’s website doesn’t have a detailed synopsis, only describing the main character, Lizzie Rose as ‘A woman fighting unimaginable odds to keep her people alive after the disintegration of America’.

The synopsis from the North American edition (to be published by Saga Press) has some more detail, though…

Set in a fractured United States, in the southwestern country now known as Texoma. A world where magic is acknowledged but mistrusted, especially by a young gunslinger named Lizbeth Rose. Battered by a run across the border to Mexico Lizbeth Rose takes a job offer from a pair of Russian wizards to be their local guide and gunnie. For the wizards, Gunnie Rose has already acquired a fearsome reputation and they’re at a desperate crossroad, even if they won’t admit it. They’re searching through the small border towns near Mexico, trying to locate a low-level magic practitioner, Oleg Karkarov. The wizards believe Oleg is a direct descendant of Grigori Rasputin, and that Oleg’s blood can save the young tsar’s life.

As the trio journey through an altered America, shattered into several countries by the assassination of Franklin Roosevelt and the Great Depression, they’re set on by enemies. It’s clear that a powerful force does not want them to succeed in their mission. Lizbeth Rose is a gunnie who has never failed a client, but her oath will test all of her skills and resolve to get them all out alive.

Piatkus also publishes Charlaine’s Aurora Teagarden series in the UK:

Today, Titan Books publishes MY GRAVE RITUAL, the third novel in G.S. Denning‘s Warlock Holmes series. Here’s what it’s about…

As they blunder towards doom, Warlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson find themselves inconvenienced by a variety of eldritch beings.

And, naturally, Moriarty is hanging around… in some form or other.

Tomorrow, travel to THE CORE in paperback!


The conclusion to the Peter V. Brett‘s critically-acclaimed, best-selling Demon Cycle series is out tomorrow in paperback! Published in the UK by Voyager, here’s the synopsis for THE CORE

The war has begun

For time out of mind, bloodthirsty demons have stalked the night, culling the human race to scattered remnants dependent on half-forgotten magics to protect them.

Two heroes arose, men as close as brothers, yet divided by bitter betrayal. Arlen Bales became known as the Painted Man, tattooed head-to-toe with powerful magic symbols that enable him to fight demons in hand-to-hand combat and emerge victorious. Ahmann Jardir, armed with magically warded weapons, called himself the Deliverer, a figure prophesied to unite humanity and lead them to triumph in Sharak Kathe final war against demonkind.

But in their efforts to bring the war to the demons, Arlen and Jardir have set something in motion that may prove the end of everything they hold dear: a Swarm. Now the war is at hand, and humanity cannot hope to win it unless Arlen and Jardir, with the help of Arlen’s wife, Renna, can bend a captured demon prince to their will and force the devious creature to lead them to the Core, where the Mother of Demons breeds an inexhaustible army.

Trusting their closest confidantes, Leesha, Inevera, Ragen, and Elissa, to rally the fractious people of the Free Cities and lead them against the Swarm, Arlen, Renna, and Jardir set out on a desperate quest into the darkest depths of evil from which none of them expects to return alive.

Voyager has published all of Brett’s Demon Cycle stories — the novels THE PAINTED MAN, THE DESERT SPEAR, THE DAYLIGHT WAR and THE SKULL THRONE, and the novellas THE GREAT BAZAAR AND BRAYAN’S GOLD, MESSENGER’S LEGACY and the upcoming BARREN.

And, of course, we cannot skip this opportunity to mention again that Voyager has recently purchased the rights to three upcoming novels by Brett, set in the same world, a few years after the events of THE CORE!

Brandon Sanderson’s OATHBRINGER is a finalist for two Gemmell Awards!


The finalists for the three Gemmell Awards were unveiled recently, and we’re very happy to report that Brandon Sanderson‘s OATHBRINGER is nominated in two categories! The third novel in the Stormlight Archive novel, OATHBRINGER is in two categories: Legend (best novel) and Ravenheart (best cover)!

Voting on the shortlist will close on June 1st, 2018. The winners of the awards will be announced at Edge-Lit 7, on July 14th.

Published in the UK by Gollancz, here’s the synopsis for OATHBRINGER

Humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe whose numbers are as great as their thirst for vengeance.

The Alethi armies commanded by Dalinar Kholin won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, and now its destruction sweeps the world and its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the true horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that their newly kindled anger may be wholly justified.

Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths the dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put Dalinar’s blood-soaked past aside and stand together — and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past — even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not avert the end of civilization.

The first two novels in the Stormlight Archive are also published in the UK by Gollancz, as are Brandon’s critically-acclaimed Mistborn novels and a number of stand-alone novels and novellas.
