  • 1. Week Ending February 5th 2016 IN STOCK – The Final Programme: The Cornelius Quartet V01 (ISBN 9781783291779 $9.95) Jerry Cornelius is a scientist, a rock star, and an assassin. He is the hippest adventurer of them all: tripping through a pop art nightmare in which kidnappings, murder, sex and drugs are a daily occurrence. Along with his savvy and ruthless partner-in-chaos, Miss Brunner, Cornelius is on a mission to control a revolutionary code for creating the ultimate human being, a modern messiah— the final programme. The first book in the Cornelius Quartet is the groundbreaking introduction to the misadventures and vendettas of Jerry Cornelius, one of modern literature’s most distinctive characters, the product of a bewildering post-modern culture, and an inspiration for generations of characters since.

Dave Stewart’s life has been a wild ride—one filled with music, constant reinvention, and the never-ending drive to create. Now the prolific musician, songwriter, and producer behind Eurythmics and dozens of pop hits shares the never-before-told stories of his life in music—the drugs and the parties, the A-list collaborations and relationships, and the creative process that brought us blockbusters like Tom Petty’s “Don’t Come Around Here No More,” Bon Jovi’s “Midnight in Chelsea,” and Celine Dion’s “Taking Chance.” With a behind-the-scenes look at Stewart’s innovative endeavors that keep him on the cutting-edge of the music business, this is a one-of-a-kind glimpse into the creative heart of one of its most gifted and enterprising contributors.

  • 5. Releasing Feb. 16th the sequel to Finn Fancy Necromancy Bigfootloose & Finn Fancy Free: A darkly funny urban fantasy by Randy Henderson (ISBN 9780765378101 $25.99) Randy Henderson continues his dark and quirky urban fantasy series set in a world of arcane beings hidden among the mundane townies of Port Townsend, Washington In this sequel to Randy Henderson's acclaimed debut novel, Finn Fancy Necromancy (ISBN 9780765385659 $15.99), Finn Gramaraye is settling back into the real world after his twenty-five-year-long imprisonment in the otherworld of the Fey. He's fallen in love with a woman from his past, though he worries she may love a version of him that no longer exists. He's proved his innocence of the original crime of Dark Necromancy, and he's finding a place in the family business--operating a mortuary for the Arcane, managing the magical energies left behind when an Arcane being dies to prevent it from harming the mundane world. But Finn wants more. Or different. Or something. He's figured out how to use the Kinfinder device created by his half-mad father to find people's True Love, and he'd like to convert that into an Arcane Dating Service. It's a great idea. Everyone wants True Love! Unfortunately, trouble always seems to find Finn, and when he agrees to help his friend, the Bigfoot named Sal, they walk right into a Feyblood rebellion against the Arcane Ruling Council, a rebellion being fomented by unknown forces and fueled by the drug created by Finn's own grandfather. I, personally, am looking forward to this as I really enjoyed Finn Fancy Necromancy – Rick ‘American Gods’ Casts Its Shadow Moon with ‘The 100’s Ricky Whittle.

Storms rage, armies clash, magics are done - and stories are made. Five new great and terrible tales reshape the Bard’s vision, a new set of stories that will be told and retold down through the centuries. It is the Year of Our Lord 1601. The Tuscan War rages across the world, and every lord from Navarre to Illyria is embroiled in the fray. Cannon roar, pikemen clash, and witches stalk the night; even the fairy courts stand on the verge of chaos. Five stories come together at the end of the war: that of bold Miranda and sly Puck; of wise Pomona and her prisoner Vertumnus; of gentle Lucia and the shade of Prospero; of noble Don Pedro and powerful Helena; and of Anne, a glovemaker’s wife. On these lovers and heroes the world itself may depend. Monstrous Little Voices collects five of today’s most exciting names in genre fiction – Jonathan Barnes (The Somnambulist, Cannonbridge); Adrian Tchaikovsky (The Shadows of the Apt, Children of Time); Emma Newman (The Split Worlds, multiple- award-nominated Tea and Jeopardy podcast); Hugo-nominated blogger Foz Meadows (Solace & Grief, The Key to Starveldt’s); and upcoming novelist (and journalist for the Ottawa Citizen) Kate Heartfield – to delve into the world Shakespeare created for us. With wars and romances, its magics and deceptions, discover five stories he never told, but could have. Stories of what happened next or what went before, of the things unseen or simply elsewhere in the world as Shakespeare’s own tales unfolded on the stage.

ABC is jumping into the time-travel craze this season with a pilot green light to Kevin Williamson’s Time After Time (ISBN 9780765326225 $19.99). Time After Time, written/exec produced by Williamson based on the 1979 novel by Karl Alexander, chronicles the epic adventures of young H.G. Wells and his Time Machine using the book and its feature adaptation as a starting point. When Wells showed it off to his famous friends―such as Henry James, Ford Madox Ford and other literary lights of 1893 London, he never suspected that another guest, his college friend, surgeon Leslie John Stephenson, was in truth the infamous Jack the Ripper. When Scotland Yard detectives showed up at Wells's house to inquire about Stevenson, Jack took the machine and fled to the future―1979 San Francisco. When the time machine, as designed, returned to its point of origin, Wells followed the Ripper to the future. Wells felt obligated to bring him back to justice. Once in San Francisco, Wells realized that he also must save that city . . . and a particular lovely young woman . . . from a new reign of terror at the hands of the depraved, grisly Jack.

It evokes NBC’s signature comedy series The Office, but with superheroes. Based on characters from DC Comics, Powerless is a workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in America — with the twist being that it also takes place in the universe of DC Comics. The show is about the reality of working life for a normal, powerless person in a world of superheroes and villains. The list of DC characters that will appear on the show is not expected to include the biggest DC brands like Batman and Superman. The focus of the series is on the ordinary, “power-less” folk working at the insurance company who often envy the men and women outside their window who make headlines with their supernatural powers. Queen is the writer/executive producer. Michael Patrick Jann is set to direct and exec produce David DiGilio to Script ‘The Stars My Destination’ Based On Sci-Fi Classic.
