Black Moon: The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin, Volume Five
The concluding volume in a series collecting the stories of Jules de Grandin, the supernatural detective made famous in the classic pulp magazine Weird Tales. Today the names of H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, August Derleth, and Clark Ashton Smith, all regular contributors to the pulp magazine Weird Tales during the first half of the twentieth century, are recognizable even to casual readers of the bizarre and fantastic. And yet despite being more popular than them all during the golden era of genre pulp fiction, there is another author whose name and work have fallen into obscurity: Seabury Quinn. Quinn's short stories were featured in well over half of Weird Tales's original publication run. His most famous character, the French supernatural detective Dr. Jules de Grandin, investigated cases involving monsters, devil worshippers, serial killers, and spirits from beyond the grave, often set in the small town of Harrisonville, New Jersey. In de Grandin there are familiar shades of both Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot, and alongside his assistant, Dr. Samuel Trowbridge, de Grandin's knack for solving mysteries-and his outbursts of peculiar French-isms (Grand Dieu!)-captivated readers for nearly three decades. Available for the first time in trade editions, The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin collects all ninety-three published works featuring the supernatural detective. Presented in chronological order over five volumes, this is the definitive collection of an iconic pulp hero. The fifth volume, Black Moon, includes all the stories from Suicide Chapel (1938) to The Ring of Bastet (1951), as well as an introduction by George Vanderburgh and Robert Weinberg and a foreword by Stephen Jones.

Knights of Caliban: Dark Angels Omnibus
The Dark Angels' eternal hunt for the Fallen embroils them in a dangerous conspiracy to change the past and destroy the future, bringing the entire Imperium under the dominion of Chaos. Master strategists, renowned duelists and one of the mightiest Space Marine Chapters of the Imperium, the Dark Angels have a long and storied history. Many of the Adeptus Astartes extol the ideals of courage and honour, yet, the sons of the Lion walk a different path. Ensconcing themselves in shadow and secrets, they seek no praise as they pursue their inscrutable agenda. The descendants of the First Legion bring grim fury to the enemies of mankind. On the world of Piscina IV the Dark Angels' war host brings swift retribution to a horde of greenskins that threatens to destroy Kadillus harbour. On the indomitable mobile fortress monastery known as the Rock, Chaplain Boreas brings tortuous iron and his scalpel like intellect to a suspected traitor. Of all the secrets that the Dark Angels possess, the Fallen are the greatest, but few know as much as Supreme Grand Master Azrael, true exemplar of the Calibanite creed and the most worthy son of the Lion. In this omnibus are the novels: The Purging of Kadillus, Angels of Darkness and Azrael.

Tallarn
The Iron Warriors came from nowhere, falling upon the world of Tallarn in a flash and devastating it with deadly virus weapons. A verdant world was transformed in a heartbeat into a radioactive wasteland... but that was only the beginning.It's a collection of all John French's tales from Tallarn... do you really need any more convincing? Okay then. Millions of tanks clashing in desperate battle on a dying world. As the Warmaster's campaign of galactic domination continues, his generals seek out fresh battlefields to conquer. After leaving the Crone World of Iydris behind, Perturabo strikes for Tallarn. A bitter, vengeful primarch, the lord of the Iron Warriors unleashes a deadly bombardment against the world, killing millions but entrenching the survivors. A brutal, all-consuming armoured conflict ensues, the greatest of the war, and one that grinds down all combatants over more than a year of relentless battles. But Perturabo's reasons for the attack are about more than unleashing punitive destruction against the Imperium - he has an entirely darker purpose in mind.

Kiernan is one of dark fantasy and horror's most acclaimed and influential short fiction writers. Her powerful, unexpected stories shatter morality, gender, and sexuality: a reporter is goaded by her toxic girlfriend into visiting sadistic art exhibits; a countess in a decaying movie theater is sated by her servants; a collector offers his greatest achievement to ensnare a musician who grieves for her missing sister. In this retrospective collection of her finest work--previously only available in limited editions--Kiernan cuts straight to the heart of the emotional truths we cannot ignore.

Heralds of the Siege
Horus has triumphed. His fleet nears Terra and the Throne of his hated father. Many have fallen to bring this moment about, their names a legacy of glory - these are their tales. A galaxy burns and brother turns on brother as the conflict brought about by a beloved son's betrayal reaches its fateful end. The Warmaster Horus has triumphed. His massive fleet at last nears Terra and the patriarchal Throne of his hated father. Many have fallen to bring this moment about, their tales are the ashes upon which the Heresy was born and prospered. Others have played their own small parts, drops in an ocean of war and blood. None of it matters. Terra looks to the skies as it raises its defences. Armies muster, heroes raise their swords, citizens cower. The war is coming. And nothing can stop it.

Menace of the Machine: The Rise of AI in Classic Science Fiction
Technological advance is never straightforward. A man is murdered by an automaton built for chess. A computer system designed to arbitrate justice develops a taste for iron-fisted, fatal rulings. An AI governing what we now know as an internet wreaks havoc on society after removing all forms of censorship. Assembled with parts from the late 19th century to the 1960s, this new collection of classic stories warns of the possible threats, both comic and severe, of a world in which human and machine live side by side. A delightfully, and worryingly, prescient selection for today's world in which robotic coexistence is passing with each day from speculation to reality.

Robotics Through Science Fiction: Artificial Intelligence Explained Through Six Classic Robot Short Stories
Six classic science fiction stories and commentary that illustrate and explain key algorithms or principles of artificial intelligence. This book presents six classic science fiction stories and commentary that illustrate and explain key algorithms or principles of artificial intelligence. Even though all the stories were originally published before 1973, they help readers grapple with two questions that stir debate even today: how are intelligent robots programmed? and what are the limits of autonomous robots? The stories-by Isaac Asimov, Vernor Vinge, Brian Aldiss, and Philip K. Dick-cover telepresence, behavior-based robotics, deliberation, testing, human-robot interaction, the uncanny valley, natural language understanding, machine learning, and ethics. Each story is preceded by an introductory note, As You Read the Story, and followed by a discussion of its implications, After You Have Read the Story. Together with the commentary, the stories offer a nontechnical introduction to robotics. The stories can also be considered as a set of-admittedly fanciful-case studies to be read in conjunction with more serious study.

The Corporation Wars Trilogy: Omnibus Edition
Three books in one! The Corporation Wars trilogy is an epic vision of man and machine in the far reaches of space - a robot's eye view of a robot revolt Carlos is dead. A soldier who died for his ideals a thousand years ago, he's been reincarnated and conscripted to fight an A.I. revolution in deep space. And he's not sure he's fighting for the right side. Seba is alive. By a fluke of nature, a contractual overlap and a loop in its subroutines, this lunar mining robot has gained sentience. Gathering with other 'freebots', Seba is taking a stand against the corporations that want it and its kind gone. As their stories converge against a backdrop of warring companies and interstellar drone combat, Carlos and Seba must either find a way to rise above the games their masters are playing, or die. And even dying will not be the end of it. Collects the three novels in the Corporation Wars trilogy - Dissidence, Insurgence and Emergence. Praise for Ken MacLeod 'Prose sleek and fast as the technology it describes . . . watch this man go global' Peter F. Hamilton 'MacLeod's novels are fast, funny and sophisticated. There can never be enough books like these: he is writing revolutionary SF. A nova has appeared in our sky' Kim Stanley Robinson 'MacLeod is up there with Banks and Hamilton as one of the British sci-fi authors you absolutely have to read' SFX

An Agent of Utopia: New and Selected Stories
In the tales gathered in An Agent of Utopia: New and Selected Stories you will meet a Utopian assassin, an aging UFO contactee, a haunted Mohawk steelworker, a time-traveling prizefighter, a yam-eating Zombie, and a child who loves a frizzled chicken--not to mention Harry Houdini, Zora Neale Hurston, Sir Thomas More, and all their fellow travelers riding the steamer-trunk imagination of a unique twenty-first-century fabulist. From the Florida folktales of the perennial prison escapee Daddy Mention and the dangerous gator-man Uncle Monday that inspired Daddy Mention and the Monday Skull (first published in Mojo: Conjure Stories, edited by Nalo Hopkinson) to the imagined story of boxer and historical bit player Jess Willard in World Fantasy Award winner The Pottawatomie Giant (first published on SciFiction), or the Ozark UFO contactees in Nebula Award winner Close Encounters to Flannery O'Connor's childhood celebrity in Shirley Jackson Award finalist Unique Chicken Goes in Reverse (first published in Eclipse) Duncan's historical juxtapositions come alive on the page as if this Southern storyteller was sitting on a rocking chair stretching the truth out beside you. Duncan rounds out his explorations of the nooks and crannies of history in two irresistible new stories, Joe Diabo's Farewell -- in which a gang of Native American ironworkers in 1920s New York City go to a show -- and the title story, An Agent of Utopia -- where he reveals what really (might have) happened to Thomas More's head.

Not One of Us: Stories of Aliens on Earth
Mankind comes face to face with extraterrestrial life in this short fiction reprint anthology from Clarkesworld publisher Neil Clarke. They Are Strangers from Far Lands . . . Science fiction writers have been using aliens as a metaphor for the other for over one hundred years. Superman has otherworldly origins, and his struggles to blend in on our planet are a clear metaphor for immigration. Earth's adopted son is just one example of this Alien Among Us narrative. There are stories of assimilation, or the failure to do so. Stories of resistance to the forces of naturalization. Stories told from the alien viewpoint. Stories that use aliens as a manifestation of the fears and worries of specific places and eras. Stories that transcend location and time, speaking to universal issues of group identity and its relationship to the Other. Nearly thirty authors in this reprint anthology grapple both the best and worst aspects of human nature, and they do so in utterly compelling and entertaining ways. Not One of Us is a collection of stories that aren't afraid to tackle thorny and often controversial issues of race, nationalism, religion, political ideology, and other ways in which humanity divides itself.
