Cutting Edge

WIRED. Africa becomes the battle ground in 21st-century war. As fiberoptic cable is laid down around the continent, two entities fight to control it. One is UpLink Communications, headed by Roger Gordian. The pan-African fiberoptic ring is his most ambitious—and expensive—endeavor to date. His nemesis, Harlan Devane, is penetrating the network. Trading in black market commodities with terrorists and rogue states, the cable offers him unlimited access to a most valuable product: information. To ensure his success, Devane makes his move halfway around the world. He hits Gordian where it hurts—and kidnaps his daughter. Now, Gordian must trust his UpLink team as never before, as they fight on land and sea to turn the tables against Devane…once and for all.


A wheelchair-bound Poirot returns to Styles, the venue of his first investigation, where he knows another murder is going to take place… The house guests at Styles seemed perfectly pleasant to Captain Hastings; there was his own daughter Judith, an inoffensive ornithologist called Norton, dashing Mr Allerton, brittle Miss Cole, Doctor Franklin and his fragile wife Barbara , Nurse Craven, Colonel Luttrell and his charming wife, Daisy, and the charismatic Boyd-Carrington. So Hastings was shocked to learn from Hercule Poirot’s declaration that one of them was a five-times murderer. True, the ageing detective was crippled with arthritis, but had his deductive instincts finally deserted him?…

Cursor’s Fury

SUMMARY: Power-hungry Kalare has rebelled against Alera’s aging First Lord, Gaius Sextus. Ill-equipped to face this attack, Gaius must seek support – even from the combative High Lord of Aquitaine. Kalare has also seized valuable hostages that could mean the difference between victory and failure. And Amara, the First Lord’s Cursor, has been tasked with their rescue. She has earned this trust but are her allies as worthy – or does the Lady Aquitaine see the time as ripe for betrayal?Treachery is rife elsewhere, as young Tavi of Calderon will find. Posted away from the war, Tavi joins a legion anyway, under an assumed name. Then Kalare does the unthinkable – uniting with the brutish Canim. When treason wipes out the army’s command structure, Tavi finds himself leading an inexperienced legion against the might of the Canim horde – the very last resort of a war-torn realm.

The Curse of Lono

The Curse of Lono by Hunter S. Thompson, Ralph Steadman
**Hunter S. Thompson’s most eccentric book in a new, limited edition**
*The Curse of Lono* is to Hawaii what *Fear and Loathing* was to Las Vegas: the crazy tales of a journalist’s “coverage” of a news event that ends up being a wild ride to the dark side of Americana. Originally published in 1983, *Curse* features all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadman duo became known and loved. This curious book, considered an oddity among Hunter’s oeuvre, has been long out of print, prompting collectors to search high and low for an original copy.
The author: Self-declared “gonzo” journalist, **Hunter S. Thompson** (1939-2005) penned nearly a dozen books, including * Hell’s Angels, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Proud Highway, Generation of Swine, Songs for the Doomed*, and *The Great Shark Hunt*. He was also contributor to various national and international publications, including a weekly sports column for ESPN.com. His acerbic, over-the-top style had a profound impact on journalism and influenced a generation of writers.
The illustrator: **Ralph Steadman** is best known for his collaborations with Hunter S. Thompson. He is also a printmaker (his prints include a series of etchings on writers from William Shakespeare to William Burroughs). His own books include the lives of Sigmund Freud and Leonardo da Vinci and *The Big I Am, the story of God*.
The editor: **Steve Crist** is the photography editor for TASCHEN, where he recently produced *Marilyn* by Andre de Dienes, *Steve McQueen* by William Claxton, and *The Polaroid Book*. He is currently working with Hugh Hefner on* Hugh Hefner’s Playboy*, on William Claxton’s forthcoming jazz opus *Jazzlife*, and a book of photographs created by Hunter S. Thompson. A California native, Steve is based at the TASCHEN America offices in Los Angeles.

The Currents of Space

Classic science fiction adventure in the Foundation universe by grandmaster Isaac Asimov. Only one man can warn the planet Florinia that it is doomed by an astronomical catastrophe — but he has amnesia and is a slave.

High above planet Florinia, the Squires of Sark live in unimaginable wealth and comfort. Down in the eternal spring of the planet, however, the native Florinians labor ceaselessly to produce the precious kyrt that brings prosperity to their Sarkite masters.

Rebellion is unthinkable and impossible. Not only do the Florinians no longer have a concept of freedom, any disruption of the vital kyrt trade would cause other planets to rise in protest, resulting in a galactic war. So the Trantorian Empire, whose grand plan is to unite all humanity in peace, prosperity, and freedom, has allowed the oppression to continue.

Living among the workers of Florinia, Rik is a man without a memory or a past. He has been abducted and brainwashed. Barely able to speak or care for himself when he was found, Rik is widely regarded as a simpleton by the worker community where he lives. As his memories begin to return, however, Rik finds himself driven by a cryptic message he is determined to deliver: Everyone on Florinia is doomed…the Currents of Space are bringing destruction. But if the planet is evacuated, the power of Sark will end-so there are those who would kill the messenger. The fate of the Galaxy hangs in the balance.

At the Publisher’s request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Currant Events

When Clio, the Muse of History, sat down to pen the twenty-eighth volume in the Chronicles of Xanth, she was stunned to discover it was already there! And, what was worse, it was totally unreadable, for the words on its pages were fuzzed beyond comprehension.Vexed and bewildered, and more than a little concerned, Clio resolved to leave the quiet comfort of her study on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, and ask her old friend, the Good Magician Humfrey, to search a solution to her problem in his Book of Answers.But, much to her consternation, Humfrey required her to perform a magical Service before she could acquire her Answer: to rescue Xanth’s dragons from the verge of extinction before the delicate balance of its wildlife was permanently thrown out of whack.Her momentous mission lead her to a dangerous Dragon World hidden amongst the Moons of Ida, across a perilous landscape filled with wonder and danger, in search of the fabled Currant, a very rare red berry that might hold the secret she sought. Along the way she acquired a fellowship of companions, including the brave and beautiful Becka Dragongirl, a pair of pocket dragons named Drew and Drusie, a charming young child called Ciriana whose destiny was somehow entwined with hers, and Sherlock, a sweet but homely man from Mundania who might just be a master magician himself.Together they gradually began to unravel the momentous mystery of Xanth’s missing history. And Clio began to realize that Sherlock’s enchantments had begun to work their way into her heart… in Piers Anthony’s Currant Events.
