The Testaments: WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019

The wait is over And so I step up, into the darkness within; or else the light. When the van door slammed on Offred's future at the end of The Handmaid's Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead for her - freedom, prison or death. With The Testaments, the wait is over. Margaret Atwood's sequel picks up the story 15 years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead. 'Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in.' Margaret Atwood 'THE LITERARY EVENT OF THE YEAR' Guardian

'When the real apocalypse arrives, may it be even half as funny as this' Linwood Barclay 'Pure, unadulterated entertainment' New York Times 'A gripping, fast-paced outbreak thriller' Sci-Fi Now 'You'll be grinning and gagging in equal measure' SFX When Pentagon bioterror operative Roberto Diaz was sent to investigate a suspected biochemical attack, he found something far worse: a highly mutative organism capable of extinction-level destruction. Now, after decades of festering in a forgotten sub-basement, the specimen has found its way out and is on a lethal feeding frenzy. And only Diaz knows how to stop it. He races across the country to help two unwitting security guards - one an ex-con, the other a single mother. Over one harrowing night, the unlikely trio must figure out how to quarantine this horror again . . . before it's too late, PRAISE FOR COLD STORAGE 'A chilling first novel [with] cinematic flair . . . it's scary, and a great deal of fun' Daily Mail 'A novel that reads like one of [Koepp's] movies: occasionally frightening, often humorous and always fast-paced' Mail on Sunday 'The book's strengths include the Stephen King-like way humour is interwoven with horror and Koepp's enthralling conjuring of the fungus, which becomes as vivid as its human co-leads' Sunday Times Culture 'Depending on your taste in humour and gore threshold, you may well be grinning and gagging in equal measure reading this debut novel from top Hollywood scriptwriter David Koepp. This is about as near to Zombieland or Tremors in book form as you're likely to find. It is properly, full-on gross in places but populated with a vividly drawn cast of believably down-to-earth characters in a plot that accelerates to breakneck pace by the breathless finale' SFX Magazine 'To be simultaneously terrifying and hilarious is a masterstroke few writers can pull off, but Koepp manages in this incredible fiction debut that calls to mind a beautiful hybrid of Michael Crichton and Carl Hiassen. Cold Storage is sheer thrillery goodness, and riotously entertaining' Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter 'A pacy and roaringly entertaining thriller' Magic Radio 'A thrilling, funny, and unexpectedly moving joy ride' Scott Smith, New York Times bestselling author of A Simple Plan 'Koepp has resurrected Crichton, injecting every page with dark humour and humanity. You'll be laughing one minute and checking your long-term survival plan the next' Christina Dalcher, Sunday Times-bestselling author of VOX 'This is a terrific thriller: ambitious, audacious, gory, scary, flamboyant, and funny' Booklist 'Cold Storage is so addictive, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough . . . the story is just as contagious as the subject' New York Times bestselling author Alice Feeney 'You might as well put your plans on ice for the next twenty-four hours, as all you'll be doing is reading this book. The very definition of 'thriller,' David Koepp's Cold Storage grabs you and shakes you and ultimately leaves you grinning' Scott Frank, Academy Award-nominated writer of Logan and Out of Sight

Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear Tankar Holroy, Lieutenant in the Stellar Guard of earth's Empire, floats in space after his spaceship is sabotaged. Rescued by an enormous, unknown ship, he awakes to discover himself saved by the People of the Stars who are born and live in space with minimal contact with planets and their occupants whom they call, with contempt, planetaries. The chilly welcome he receives from the ship's leader, the Teknor, is followed by overt hostility from the other inhabitants of the Tilsin. Only a woman named Orena reaches out to him. Tankar soon realizes that he was rescued for his knowledge of tracers, the technology that allows Empire ships to track others through hyperspace, a technology the People of the Stars lack. Out of spite, he refuses to deliver the one piece of knowledge that can protect the people who saved but now spurn him - and the consequences will be catastrophic.

FROM THE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF WORLD WAR Z ______________________________________ As the ash and chaos from Mount Rainier's eruption swirled and finally settled, the story of the Greenloop massacre has passed unnoticed, unexamined . . . until now. But the journals of resident Kate Holland, recovered from the town's bloody wreckage, capture a tale too harrowing - and too earth-shattering in its implications - to be forgotten. In these pages, Max Brooks brings Kate's extraordinary account to light for the first time, faithfully reproducing her words alongside his own extensive investigations into the massacre and the beasts behind it, once thought legendary but now known to be terrifyingly real. Kate's is a tale of unexpected strength and resilience, of humanity's defiance in the face of a terrible predator's gaze, and inevitably, of savagery and death. Yet it is also far more than that. Because if what Kate Holland saw in those days is real, then we must accept the impossible. We must accept that the creature known as Bigfoot walks among us - and that it is a beast of terrible strength and ferocity. Part survival narrative, part bloody horror tale, part scientific journey into the boundaries between truth and fiction, this is a Bigfoot story as only Max Brooks could chronicle it - and like none you've ever read before.

Of Ants and Dinosaurs
In a sunlit clearing in central Gondwana, on an otherwise ordinary day in the late Cretaceous, the seeds of Earth's first and greatest civilization were sown in the grisly aftermath of a Tyrannosaurus' lunch. Throughout the universe, intelligence is a rare and fragile commodity - a fleeting glimmer in the long night of cosmic history. That Earth should harbour not just one but two intelligent species at the same time, defies the odds. That these species, so unalike - and yet so complementary - should forge an alliance that kindled a civilization defies logic. But time is endless and everything comes to pass eventually... The alliance between ants and dinosaurs, was of course, based on dentistry. Yet from such humble beginnings came writing, mathematics, computers, fusion, antimatter and even space travel - a veritable Age of Wonder! But such magnificent industry comes at a price - a price paid first by Earth's biosphere, and then by all those dependent on it. And yet the Dinosaurs refused to heed the Ants' warning of impending ecological collapse, leaving the Ant Federation facing a single dilemma: destroy the dinosaurs, destroy a civilization... or perish alongside them?

The Faking of the President: Nineteen Stories of White House Noir
What would the White House be like if U.S. Presidents of the past were not restricted by the time-honored hallmarks and traditional behavior of the office, leaving them free to do whatever they wanted, anytime and anywhere? THE FAKING OF THE PRESIDENT: Nineteen Stories of White House Noir pulls back the curtain on the new norm for America's highest office, with a collection of bizarre new stories by a diverse group of renowned authors that take readers across the chasm of reality into an alternate universe-where Nixon takes a wacky psychedelic trip with Elvis Presley; where a time-traveling renegade targets members of the George Bush administration with disastrous results; where a spy seizes a sudden opportunity for power after Woodrow Wilson's stroke. The stories are outlandish-but when it comes to the today-strange behavior and kinky, zany antics are no longer implausible. Spinning new tales of White House noir, these yarns confirm that absolute power-minus checks and balances-absolutely corrupts. THE FAKING OF THE PRESIDENT acknowledges the wacko state of politics today, and openly wonders how far down the rabbit hole the American presidency can go. The line-up of award-winning authors includes Eric Beetner, Peter Carlaftes, Sarah M. Chen, Angel Luis Colon, S. A. Cosby, Nikki Dolson, Mary Anna Evans, Adam Lance Garcia, Danny Gardner, Alison Gaylin, Christopher Chambers, Kate Flora, Greg Herren, Gary Phillips, Alex Segura, Travis Richardson, S. J. Rozan, Abby Vandiver, and Erica Wright. In an era where the bar for what is acceptable has shifted beyond what the founding fathers ever imagined, THE FAKING OF THE PRESIDENT is a highly recommended unique creative act of resistance, and a must-have for fans of politics, noir, and speculative fiction.

Renowned urban artist Shepard Fairey's new look for Orwell's dystopian masterpiece Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth in London, chief city of Airstrip One. Big Brother stares out from every poster, the Thought Police uncover every act of betrayal. When Winston finds love with Julia, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities. Despite the police helicopters that hover and circle overhead, Winston and Julia begin to question the Party; they are drawn towards conspiracy. Yet Big Brother will not tolerate dissent - even in the mind. For those with original thoughts they invented Room 101. . . 1984 is George Orwell's terrifying vision of a totalitarian future in which everything and everyone is slave to a tyrannical regime. 'Right up there among my favourite books ... I read it again and again' Margaret Atwood 'More relevant to today than almost any other book that you can think of' Jo Brand

The Human Son
A startling, emotional, beautiful (and at times funny) book - one that feels like the best sort of science fiction, a book that should be enjoyed widely, a book that speaks of what it is to be human, a parent, and a child. It is 500 years in the future and Earth is no longer populated by humans. The new guardians of Earth, the genetically engineered Erta, have reversed climate change. They are now faced with a dilemma; if they reintroduce the rebellious and violent Homo Sapiens, all of their work will be undone. They decide to raise one final child; a sole human to help decide if humanity should again inherit the Earth. But the quiet and clinical Ima finds that there is more to raising a human than she had expected; and there is more to humanity's history than she has been told.

Firefly - The Ghost Machine
The fourth original novel tying into the critically acclaimed and much-missed Firefly series from creator Joss Whedon. Mal and the crew take receipt of a sealed crate which they are being paid to transport to Badger, no questions asked. Yet once their cargo is safely stowed aboard, River insists Mal should space it out of the airlock, for it contains, she insists, ghosts. With supplies running low, the crew desperately need another pay day, but soon find themselves paralysed by hallucinations of their deepest hopes and desires, so vivid they cannot be distinguished from reality. River is the only one unaffected, and desperately tries to awaken her crew mates, while the fantasies turn sour, and the ship begins to spin out of control.
