Reign of Shadows

###
From the national bestselling author.
“Chester is a world class fantasist.” —THE BEST REVIEWS
Caelan E’Non is the son of the land’s most powerful healer, and is naturally expected to follow in his father’s footsteps. Except Caelan feels a burning desire to blaze his own trail—and possesses a magic he does not understand.
Elandra Albain has been raised as a servant in her father’s house. Her sister, Lady Bixia, has been pampered and spoiled, and is thought to be destined for greatness. But Elandra has a destiny all her own.
For as long as Caelan or Elandra can recall, Emperor Kostimon has ruled the land. For nine centuries his life has been sustained. But this wondrous immortality stems from a bargain with the very source of evil itself—from the dark lord Beloth. Now, as Kostimon’s tenth and final lifetime begins, the shadow god is growing restless.
And so begins the REIGN OF SHADOWS.

The Regulators

The Regulators by Stephen King
Bachman is Stephen King without a conscience. This is the harrowing story of a suburban neighborhood in the grip of surreal terror. On a summer afternoon on Poplar St. everything is normal, except for the red van idling just up the hill. Soon it will begin to roll, & the killing will begin. A quiet slice of American suburbia is about to turn to toast. By nightfall, the surviving residents will find themselves in another world, one where anything, no matter how terrible, is possible . . . and where the regulators are on their way. How far they will go, & how they can be stopped — these are the desperate questions. The answers are absolutely terrifying.

Regular Sex ~ Issue 4 ~ Meet Me

Excerpt from Issue 4:
HUEY
I don’t think I’m imagining it. She keeps looking over at me today, I’m sure of it.
I’ve been writing in the library for three weeks now, a half-hearted attempt to save both my money and my heart from the effect of the endless espressos that accompany trying to work in the local cafe. It’s quite charming as libraries go, housed in an old Victorian building with lots of side rooms and lamp-lit nooks. I’m missing my coffee hit but it’s certainly a charismatic sort of place, and right from day one I’ve caught one of the librarians watching me out of the corner of her perfectly made up eye.
I’ll tell you something else I’m not imagining, either. She wears stockings to work. I haven’t been letching, but sometimes when she clears the books from the table I’m working at or comes close by to file away a pile of returned books, I can see the outline of the catches pressing beneath her skirt.
That’s not normal, is it? I mean, it is in my fantasies, but most women don’t wear stockings on a day-to-day basis in reality, do they? The fact that she does tells me stuff about her. It tells me that she’s confident, and that she embraces her own sexuality. That’s not a sexist thing to say, is it? I don’t mean it to be. It’s a compliment. I love that she’s not apologetic about the fact she’s f******* beautiful, that she chooses to wear clothes that celebrate rather than shroud her body. Make no mistake about it, this girl is packing some serious pin-up curves; she looks like she belongs in the nineteen fifties drinking cocktails with Marilyn Monroe rather than stacking sci-fi books alphabetically, as she appears to be tasked with this afternoon.

EPISODE 2 – NEVER HAVE SEX WITH YOUR EX
‘I don’t care if he’s signed the contract! He goes or I do, Art, it’s as simple as that.’
Of all the men in all the world Art could have chosen to replace Stanley with at the last minute, why did he have to go and choose Reuben Turner? Stanley is the leading man in the new West End production I’m starring in and I have to practically hump him, which is fine because I’m an actress and I can detach. Even a last minute change of actor shouldn’t pose too much of a problem, except for the small matter that I used to be married to Reuben Turner and there is no way on God’s earth I’m having sex with him, even simulated sex with my knickers still firmly on.

Reflex

EDITORIAL REVIEW: Davy thinks he’s alone…what if he isn’t?When Davy was a young teen, he discovered that he was capable of teleportation. At first, it was only when he was terrified and in horrible danger. Later, he learned to control his ability, and went to work for a secret government agency.Now, a mysterious group of people has taken Davy captive. They don’t want to hire him, and they don’t have any hope of appealing to him to help them. What they want is to own him. They want to use his abilities for their own purposes, whether Davy agrees to it or not. And so they set about brainwashing him and conditioning him, and they have found a way to keep a teleport captive.But there’s one thing that they don’t know. No one knows it, not even Davy. The secret is that experiencing teleportation, over and over again, can teach a person how to do it. Davy’s wife Millie is the only person on Earth who has teleported nearly as often as he has. She discovered her new talent the same way Davy did — in mortal danger, facing imminent death, she suddenly found herself in her own apartment.Now, if she can learn to control this ability, and fast, she may be able to rescue Davy.

The Rediscovery of Man: The Complete Short Science Fiction of Cordwainer Smith

The third story in this volume takes place 16,000 years in the future. When you realize that the 33 stories are ordered chronologically, you begin to grasp the scale of Cordwainer Smith’s creation. Regimes, technologies, planets, moralities, religions, histories all rise and fall through his millennia.
These are futuristic tales told as myth, as legend, as a history of a distant and decayed past. Written in an unadorned voice reminiscent of James Tiptree Jr., Smith’s visions are dark and pessimistic, clearly a contrast from the mood of SF in his time; in the 1940s, ’50s, and ’60s it was still thought that science would cure the ills of humanity. In Smith’s tales, space travel takes a horrendous toll on those who pilot the ships through the void. After reaching perfection, the lack of strife stifles humanity to a point of decay and stagnation; the Instrumentality of Mankind arises in order to stir things up. Many stories describe moral dilemmas involving the humanity of the Underpeople, beings evolved from animals into humanlike forms.
Stories not to be missed in this collection include “Scanners Live in Vain,” “The Dead Lady of Clown Town,” “Under Old Earth,” “The Crime and the Glory of Commander Suzdal,” “Mother Hitton’s Littul Kittons,” and the truly disturbing “A Planet Called Shayol.” Serious SF fans should not pass up the chance to experience Cordwainer Smith’s complex, distinctive vision of the far future.

Redemption’s Blade

Ten years ago, the renegade demigod known as the Kinslayer returned. His armies of monsters issued from the pits of the earth, spearheaded by his brutal Yorughan soldiers. He won every battle, leaving burnt earth and corruption behind. Thrones toppled and cities fell as he drove all before him. And then he died. A handful of lucky heroes and some traitors amongst his own, and the great Kinslayer was no more.
Celestaine was one such hero and now she has tasked herself to correct the worst excesses of the Kinslayer and bring light back to her torn-up world. With two Yorughan companions she faces fanatics, war criminals and the monsters and minions the Kinslayer left behind as the fragile alliances of the war break down into feuding, greed and mistrust.
The Kinslayer may be gone, but he cast a long shadow she may never truly escape.

The Redemption of Althalus

David and Leigh Eddings were mythmakers and world builders of the first order. With The Redemption of Althalus, the authors of the Belgariad and Malloreon sagas created a thrilling stand-alone epic—boldly written and brilliantly imagined.

It would be sheer folly to try to conceal the true nature of Althalus, for his flaws are the stuff of legend. He is, as all men know, a thief, a liar, an occasional murderer, an outrageous braggart, and a man devoid of even the slightest hint of honor.

Yet of all the men in the world, it is Althalus, unrepentant rogue and scoundrel, who will become the champion of humanity in its desperate struggle against the forces of an ancient god determined to return the universe to nothingness. On his way to steal The Book from the House at the End of the World, Althalus is confronted by a cat–a cat with eyes like emeralds, the voice of a woman, and the powers of a goddess.

She is Dweia, sister to The Gods and a greater thief even than Althalus. She must be: for in no time at all, she has stolen his heart. And more. She has stolen time itself. For when Althalus leaves the House at the End of the World, much wiser but not a day older than when he’d first entered it, thousands of years have gone by.

But Dweia is not the only one able to manipulate time. Her evil brother shares the power, and while Dweia has been teaching Althalus the secrets of The Book, the ancient God has been using the dark magic of his own Book to rewrite history. Yet all is not lost. But only if Althalus, still a thief at heart, can bring together a ragtag group of men, women, and children with no reason to trust him or each other.

Praise for The Redemption of Althalus

“Highly recommended . . . Featuring a cast of engaging characters, some fanciful plot twists, and a light-hearted atmosphere that should appeal strongly to fans and first-time readers alike.”—Library Journal

“The story takes off. The interactions between characters, straightforward plotting, and doses of wry humor keep the tale humming.”—Booklist

“An engaging young reprobate hero . . . [A] magical realm of good-natured fun.”—Publishers Weekly

“A compelling, involving story.”—Science Fiction Chronicle

**Recensie(s)**

A graceful, fluid style of storytelling rare in fantasy writing’ Publishers Weekly Nobody writes modern fantasy like Eddings’ Vector

Red Winter: The Complete Trilogy (The Red Winter Trilogy)

If Emi is sure of anything, it’s that *kami*—the gods—are good, and *yokai*—the earth spirits—are evil. But when she saves the life of a fox shapeshifter, the truths of her world start to crumble. And the treachery of the gods runs deep.
**Red Winter: The Complete Trilogy** includes three breathtaking novels that follow Emi as she grows from an uncertain shrine maiden to a divine warrior who must choose whether to bow to duty or fight for her life.
The trilogy also features **30 full-page illustrations** by award-winning artist Brittany Jackson.
*”An enchanting tale of fantastical magic, supernatural creatures, mysterious heroes, and forbidden romance, [set] against a wildly gorgeous and exotic backdrop.”* – Flylef Reviews
*”Red Winter was full of magic, action, romance, a whole lot of intrigue and an amazing set of characters … honestly one of the books that I will read again and again.”* – Chaotic Reader
Keywords: Contemporary fantasy, romantic fantasy, Asian mythology

**Red Winter (Book 1):**
Emi has spent her entire life hiding from the creatures that hunt her. The savage earth spirits are determined to kill her before she can become the living host of a goddess, so she stays hidden—until the day she saves the life of a *kitsune*.
Shiro isn’t the harmless fox spirit she thought he was. He’s mysterious, cunning, unpredictable … and now hers to command. He’s sworn to pay his debt to her, but he doesn’t know who she is. If he finds out, he’ll kill her.
But she can’t send him away—not yet. Her future isn’t what she thought. The lies surrounding her fate have begun to unravel, and she needs answers before time runs out—answers that lie in the spirit realm. Shiro can take her there … if she dares to trust him.
And only then will she find out how deep the gods’ treachery runs.

**Dark Tempest (Book 2):**
Emi has dedicated her life to becoming the perfect vessel for the goddess Amaterasu, but the insidious betrayal of another deity has changed everything. Now Amaterasu has charged Emi with an urgent mission: to find and free the earthly gods before mankind is brought to its knees beneath divine tyranny.
At her side is Shiro, the mysterious fox spirit. When she first saved his life, she could never have imagined that behind his cunning and confidence, he was lost—his power bound by a devastating curse and his memories obscured. His veiled history is somehow tied to the missing gods, but he can’t remember how or why.
As their search leads them into the murky depths of the spirit realm, the shadows of Shiro’s past begin to emerge. With each brief awakening of his true self, she loses a little more of him. The fate of the heavens and earth rest in her mortal hands, and she must find the missing gods before time runs out for her world—and for Shiro.

**Immortal Fire (Book 3):**
Once, Emi believed the heavenly gods were righteous and wise, while the earthly *yokai* spirits were bloodthirsty and evil. But with a traitorous deity poised to destroy her world, and the *yokai* standing as humanity’s only defense, the lies of her upbringing have toppled to reveal a far more terrifying reality.

Despite the looming threat, Emi can’t escape her greatest distraction: Shiro, the fox *yokai* who has so deftly claimed her heart for his own. Soon—too soon—she will have to break the curse that binds his magic and memories. And once the ancient power inside him awakens, the *yokai* she loves will be changed forever.
As the earthly gods gather to wage war against the heavens, Emi and Shiro must gamble everything to turn the tide against their immortal, all-powerful foes. Together, they will find a way to save her world—even if it means losing each other.

The Red Tent

The Red Tent – 20th Anniversary Edition: A Novel by Anita Diamant
**A *New York Times *Bestseller**
A decade after the publication of this hugely popular international bestseller, Picador releases the tenth anniversary edition of *The Red Tent*.
Her name is Dinah. In the Bible, her life is only hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters of the Book of Genesis that tell of her father, Jacob, and his twelve sons.
Told in Dinah’s voice, Anita Diamant imagines the traditions and turmoils of ancient womanhood–the world of the red tent. It begins with the story of the mothers–Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah–the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts that sustain her through childhood, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land. Dinah’s story reaches out from a remarkable period of early history and creates an intimate connection with the past.
Deeply affecting, *The Red Tent* combines rich storytelling with a valuable achievement in modern fiction: a new view of biblical women’s lives.

Red Seas Under Red Skies

In his highly acclaimed debut, *The Lies of Locke Lamora, *Scott Lynch took us on an adrenaline-fueled adventure with a band of daring thieves led by con artist extraordinaire Locke Lamora. Now Lynch brings back his outrageous hero for a caper so death-defying, nothing short of a miracle will pull it off.
**
**After a brutal battle with the underworld that nearly destroyed him, Locke and his trusted sidekick, Jean, fled the island city of their birth and landed on the exotic shores of Tal Verrar to nurse their wounds. But even at this westernmost edge of civilization, they can’t rest for long—and are soon back to what they do best: stealing from the undeserving rich and pocketing the proceeds for themselves.
This time, however, they have targeted the grandest prize of all: the Sinspire, the most exclusive and heavily guarded gambling house in the world. Its nine floors attract the wealthiest clientele—and to rise to the top, one must impress with good credit, amusing behavior…and excruciatingly impeccable play. For there is one cardinal rule, enforced by Requin, the house’s cold-blooded master: it is death to cheat at any game at the Sinspire.
Brazenly undeterred, Locke and Jean have orchestrated an elaborate plan to lie, trick, and swindle their way up the nine floors…straight to Requin’s teeming vault. Under the cloak of false identities, they meticulously make their climb—until they are closer to the spoils than ever.
But someone in Tal Verrar has uncovered the duo’s secret. Someone from their past who has every intention of making the impudent criminals pay for their sins. Now it will take every ounce of cunning to save their mercenary souls. And even that may not be enough.…
**PRAISE FOR SCOTT LYNCH**

“A bright new voice in the fantasy genre.”**—George R. R. Martin**

***Red Seas Under Red Skies***

“Lynch hasn’t merely imagined a far-off world, he’s created it, put it all down on paper—the smells, the sounds, the people, the feel of the place. The novel is a virtuoso performance, and sf/fantasy fans will gobble it up.”**—*Booklist* (starred review)**

“*Red Seas Under Red Skies* firmly proves that Scott Lynch isn’t a one-hit wonder. . . . It’ll only be a matter of time before Scott Lynch is mentioned in the same breath as George R. R. Martin and Steven Erikson.”**—*Fantasy Book Critic***

“Grand, grandiose, grandiloquent . . . No critic is likely to fault Lynch in his overflowing qualities of inventiveness, audacious draftsmanship, and sympathetic characterization.”**—*Locus***

“The kind of witty romp that reminds you exactly how much fun heroic fantasy is supposed to be.”**—*SFX

***The Lies of Locke Lamora***

“Right now, in the full flush of a second reading, I think *The Lies of Locke Lamora* is probably in my top ten favorite books ever. Maybe my top five. If you haven’t read it, you should. If you have read it, you should probably read it again.”**—Patrick Rothfuss, *New York Times* bestselling author of *The Name of the Wind***
