The thrilling conclusion to the brilliant trilogy set on a distant world among the stars. A MISSING NUCLEAR WARHEAD. AN INTERSTELLAR CONSPIRACY. A DOOMSDAY CULT. In a remote city, a renowned performance artist commits suicide on video; from a long-abandoned space station comes impossible footage of a dead body; and in an isolated outpost, a secretive cult believes they are communing with the ancient alien Masters.

But his investigation is leading to a grand conspiracy by a powerful cabal and the forces of distant Earth reaching into every level of Magentan society. Is she involved? As he tries to learn the truth, the AI construct of his wife he created searches for her own place in this world and Magenta faces an existential threat. On the run, and with nowhere to turn Keon must decide who to trust: The wife he loves or the AI who loves him.

Body Tourists
Her observation of our species is tender, precise, illuminating - Hilary Mantel In this version of London, there is a small, private clinic. Behind its layers of security, procedures are taking place on poor, robust teenagers from northern Estates in exchange for thousands of pounds - procedures that will bring the wealthy dead back to life in these young supple bodies for fourteen days. It's an opportunity for wrongs to be righted, for fathers to meet grandsons, for scientists to see their work completed. Old wine in new bottles. But at what cost? The first chapter of Body Tourists will be broadcast on Radio 4 on June 4th, 2019, and available online subsequently.

The Feed: A chilling, dystopian page-turner with a twist that will make your head explode
The Feed is a unique, thought-provoking and utterly addictive post-apocalyptic thriller that fans of The Girl With All the Gifts and The Passage will love. SJ Watson says he was 'hooked from the very beginning and haunted for days' and CJ Tudor was captivated by 'a twist that will make your head explode'. The Feed was everything, until it was gone. Tom and Kate have managed to survive in an unconnected world, but the search for their abducted daughter reveals what they have lost. Without the Feed, no one knows who you are. No one knows who to trust. Without it, how can their daughter be saved? What readers are saying about The Feed: 'Absolutely terrifying. It is incredibly real and wholly recognisable' 'Gripping and exciting and all too close for comfort. Very realistic and beautifully written' 'A harrowing tale, at times moving, at times thoughtful, at times harsh. It will keep you coming back for more with characters that feel real, a vivid landscape and stellar thought-provoking story' 'This is not a book you can start reading and put back down so be prepared to lose some sleep over this one!'

Doctor Who: Big Bang Generation
I'm an archaeologist, but probably not the one you were expecting. Christmas 2015, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Imagine everyone's surprise when a time portal opens up in Sydney Cove. Imagine their shock as a massive pyramid now sits beside the Harbour Bridge, inconveniently blocking Port Jackson and glowing with energy. Imagine their fear as Cyrrus the mobster Globb, Professor Horace Jaanson and an alien assassin called Kik arrive to claim the glowing pyramid. Finally imagine everyone's dismay when they are followed by a bunch of con artists out to spring their greatest grift yet. This gang consists of Legs (the sexy comedian), Dog Boy (providing protection and firepower), Shortie (handling logistics), Da Trowel (in charge of excavation and history) and their leader, Doc (busy making sure the universe isn't destroyed in an explosion that makes the Big Bang look like a damp squib). And when someone accidentally reawakens The Ancients of the Universe - which, Doc reckons, wasn't the wisest or best-judged of actions - things get a whole lot more complicated...

Warlord: The Makaum War: Book Three
In the third entry in bestselling author Mel Odom's Makaum War series, Master Sergeant Frank Sage struggles to defend against the Phrenorian threat as battle lines will be redrawn-and blood will spill... One step forward, two steps back sums up Frank Sage's day-to-day on Makaum. No sooner does he get the drug cartels under control than a major political assassination stirs civil unrest to a fever pitch. Makaumans never wanted to choose sides in the Terran/Phrenorian war, but frustration, fear, and resentment are turning the tide against peacekeeping efforts. As street skirmishes rage on, the Terrans' most powerful on-planet ally works with Sage's superior officer to isolate insurgent cells-and outmaneuver the general who wants to yank troops from Makaum before their job is done. Meanwhile, the assassin who's targeting powerful figures from all factions is still at large. Amidst the chaos, Sage must keep his eye on a lethal prize -the secret armory and headquarters where the Phrenorians have been stockpiling weapons, munitions, and war machines. The mission to infiltrate will put him on a collision course with Zhoh GhiCemid, his ruthlessly ambitious Phrenorian counterpart. As dangerous as ever, Zhoh isn't afraid to die-and would like nothing better than to take Sage down with him.

We, Robots
Simon Ings presents 100 of the best SF short stories on artificial intelligence from around the world. From 1837 through to present day, from Charles Dickens to Cory Doctorow, these stories demonstrate humanity's enduring fascination with artificial creation. Crafted in our image, androids mirror our greatest hopes and darkest fears: we want our children to do better and be better than us, but we also place ourselves in jeopardy by creating beings that may eventually outthink us. This compelling SF figure has persisted across decades and subgenres so the anthology is organised into six thematic sections: Making Robots, Dealing with Robots, Served by Robots, Changing Places with Robots, Being Robots and, finally, Supplanted by Robots. Featuring Ken Liu's 'The Caretaker', where an elderly man's android careworker is much more than it first appears, while in Isaac Asimov's 'Liar!', a telepathic robot is driven to madness. A man plans to kill a simulacrum of his wife, except his shrink is sleeping with her in Robert Bloch's 'Comfort Me, My Robot'. We, Robots collects the finest android short stories the genre has to offer, from the biggest names in the field to exciting rising stars.

A final confrontation is coming. The Future of Another Timeline is a breathtakingly original novel from Annalee Newitz, founding editor of io9, about the lengths we'll go to make history.

Skein Island
From the author of The Loosening Skin and The Beauty, Aliya Whiteley, Skein Island is a powerful and disturbing look at the roles we play, and how they form and divide us. This new edition features a brand new novelette set in the same world as Skein Island. Skein Island, since 1945 a private refuge for women, lies in turbulent waters twelve miles off the coast of Devon. Visitors are only allowed by invitation from the reclusive Lady Amelia Worthington. Women stay for one week, paying for their stay with a story from their past; a Declaration for the Island's vast library. Marianne's invitation arrives shortly before her quiet life at the library is violently interrupted, the aftermath leaving her husband David feeling helpless. Now, just like her mother did seventeen years ago, she must discover what her story is. Secrets are buried deep on Skein Island. The monsters of Ancient Greece and the atrocities of World War II, heroes and villains with their seers and sidekicks, and the stories of a thousand lifetimes all threaten to break free. But every story needs an ending, whatever the cost.
