  • 1. Week Ending June 19th, 2015 Just released – The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins (ISBN 9780553418606 $26.00) Carolyn’s not so different from the other human beings around her. She’s sure of it. She likes guacamole and cigarettes and steak. She knows how to use a phone. She even remembers what clothes are for. After all, she was a normal American herself, once. That was a long time ago, of course—before the time she calls “adoption day,” when she and a dozen other children found themselves being raised by a man they learned to call Father. Father could do strange things. He could call light from darkness. Sometimes he raised the dead. And when he was disobeyed, the consequences were terrible. In the years since Father took her in, Carolyn hasn’t gotten out much. Instead, she and her adopted siblings have been raised according to Father’s ancient Pelapi customs. They’ve studied the books in his library and learned some of the secrets behind his equally ancient power. Sometimes, they’ve wondered if their cruel tutor might secretly be God. Now, Father is missing. And if God truly is dead, the only thing that matters is who will inherit his library—and with it, power over all of creation. As Carolyn gathers the tools she needs for the battle to come, fierce competitors for this prize align against her. But Carolyn can win. She’s sure of it. What she doesn’t realize is that her victory may come at an unacceptable price—because in becoming God, she’s forgotten a great deal about being human. In Shelf Awareness today --Kerry McHugh, blogger at Entomology of a Bookworm said… At times humorous, more often dark and frightening, and always fast-paced, The Library at Mount Char is an epic fantasy novel that is remarkable for its imagination and originality.
  • 2. Neil Gaiman’s, American Gods (ISBN 9780380789030 $7.99) Gets Starz Series Order http://deadline.com/2015/06/american-gods-neil-gaiman-series-starz-1201444976/ Wytches V01 (ISBN 9781632153807 $9.99) Creators: Scott Snyder, JOCK From Flavorwire – The super-creepy Wytches will have you hooked within the first few pages — and also terrified. Wytches brilliantly reinvents the witch genre, in a tale centering on the Rooks family, particularly daughter Sailor, and the eerie occurrences in the woods. Wytches can be brutal and horrifying, but once you get to the end of the first issue, there’s already no turning back.

  • 4. Winner of the 2014 Nebula Award for Best Novel - Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer (ISBN 9780374104092 $13.00) Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; the second expedition ended in mass suicide, the third expedition in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another. The members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within weeks, all had died of cancer. In Annihilation, the first volume of Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy, we join the twelfth expedition. The group is made up of four women: an anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist, the de facto leader; and our narrator, a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain, record all observations of their surroundings and of one anotioner, and, above all, avoid being contaminated by Area X itself. They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers--they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding--but it's the surprises that came across the border with them and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another that change everything.

  • 6. Michael Bay is attached to direct Wesley Chu’s Time Salvager (ISBN 9780765377180 $25.99) – July 7th release Just released – Drawn & Quarterly: Twenty-five Years of Contemporary Cartooning, Comics, and Graphic Novels Edited by Tom Devlin (ISBN 9781770461994 $49.95) Drawn & Quarterly: Twenty-five Years of Contemporary Cartooning, Comics, and Graphic Novels celebrates the storied transformation of the Montreal publisher whose veneration of the medium's best cartoonists has never wavered. In 1989, when the term "graphic novel" was not commonly heard in the comic shop or bookstore, Chris Oliveros created a comics magazine that took the industry by storm with issues that featured Peter Bagge, Julie Doucet, Carol Tyler, Jacques Tardi, and Seth. Armed with an editorial aesthetic, design sense, and passion for its artists, D+Q grew from a one-man operation into a wildly influential boutique publisher. D+Q is renowned for an author-friendly ethos of high production standards, creative freedom, and fair business practices, with a roster that includes Lynda Barry, Kate Beaton, Chester Brown, Daniel Clowes, Tove Jansson, Shigeru Mizuki, Art Spiegelman, Adrian Tomine, Chris Ware, and others from around the globe. Drawn & Quarterly: Twenty-five Years is a celebration of the brilliant cartoonists whose talent and loyalty is the core of D+Q's success as an independent publisher. The book digs into the archives and features comics, biographies, personal reminiscences, and photographs; new work by Michael DeForge, Guy Delisle, Miriam Katin, R. Sikoryak, and Jillian Tamaki; essays by Margaret Atwood, Jonathan Lethem, Sheila Heti, and Deb Olin Unferth; and interviews by Jeet Heer and Sean Rogers. Warner Bros. won a heated bidding war for the movie rights to Uprooted (ISBN 9780804179034 $25.00), the new fantasy novel from Hugo Award-nominated Naomi Novik, the author behind the dragon-laced Temeraire book series. Making a rare foray into features with the tome is Ellen DeGeneres, who will produce the adaptation with Jeff Kleeman. Kleeman, her partner at A Very Good Production banner, identified the book and brought it to DeGeneres. See today’s ‘Showcase’ for this and other Naomi Novik titles
  • 7. Now taking orders for the August release of…. The End of All Things by John Scalzi (ISBN 9780765376077 $24.99) Hugo-award winning author John Scalzi returns to his best-selling Old Man's War universe with the direct sequel to 2013's The Human Division Humans expanded into space...only to find a universe populated with multiple alien species bent on their destruction. Thus was the Colonial Union formed, to help protect us from a hostile universe. The Colonial Union used the Earth and its excess population for colonists and soldiers. It was a good arrangement...for the Colonial Union. Then the Earth said: no more. Now the Colonial Union is living on borrowed time-a couple of decades at most, before the ranks of the Colonial Defense Forces are depleted and the struggling human colonies are vulnerable to the alien species that have been waiting for the first sign of weakness, to drive humanity to ruin. And there's another problem: A group, lurking in the darkness of space, playing human and alien against each other-and against their own kind -for their own unknown reasons. In this collapsing universe, CDF Lieutenant Harry Wilson and the Colonial Union diplomats he works with race against the clock to discover who is behind attacks on the Union and on alien races, to seek peace with a suspicious, angry Earth, and keep humanity's union intact...or else risk oblivion, and extinction-and the end of all things.

And that’s just how Marco likes it. Sure, the life he’s chosen may not be much of a challenge to someone with his gifts, but Marco is content with his quiet and peaceful existence. That is, until an old government friend presents him with an irresistible mystery—one that Marco seems uniquely qualified to solve: it seems that a team of DARPA scientists has invented a device that could make teleportation a reality. But something is very wrong with the project. The personalities of the scientists who work on it are changing. People are dying. And reality itself seems to be…warping. Marco soon learns that the machine is not at all what it appears to be—and that its creators may have opened a doorway to something horrible that lurks just outside our world’s borders.

  • 13. Releasing October 2015 Amazing, Fantastic, Incredible: A Marvelous Memoir (ISBN 9781501107726 $30.00) In this gorgeously illustrated, full-color graphic memoir, Stan Lee—comic book legend and co-creator of Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Avengers, the Incredible Hulk, and a legion of other Marvel superheroes—shares his iconic legacy and the story of how modern comics came to be. Stan Lee is a man who needs no introduction. The most legendary name in the history of comic books, he has been the leading creative force behind Marvel Comics, and has brought to life—and into the mainstream—some of the world’s best-known heroes and most infamous villains throughout his career. His stories—filled with superheroes struggling with personal hang-ups and bad guys who possessed previously unseen psychological complexity—added wit and subtlety to a field previously locked into flat portrayals of good vs. evil. Lee put the human in superhuman and in doing so, created a new mythology for the twentieth century. In this beautifully illustrated graphic memoir—illustrated by celebrated artist Colleen Doran—Lee tells the story of his life with the same inimitable wit, energy, and offbeat spirit that he brought to the world of comics. Moving from his impoverished childhood in Manhattan to his early days writing comics, through his military training films during World War II and the rise of the Marvel empire in the 1960s to the current resurgence in movies, Amazing Fantastic Incredible documents the life of a man and the legacy of an industry and career. This funny, moving, and incredibly honest memoir is a must-have for collectors and fans of comic books and graphic novels of every age.
