  2. For someone who didn't intend to wreck the solar system's fragile balance of power, Jim Holden did a pretty good job of it. While Earth and Mars have stopped shooting each other, the core alliance is shattered. The outer planets and the Belt are uncertain in their new - possibly temporary - autonomy. Then, on one of Jupiter's moons, a single super-soldier attacks, slaughtering soldiers of Earth and Mars indiscriminately and reigniting the war.

Corey is the pen name of fantasy author Daniel Abraham, author of the critically acclaimed Long Price Quartet, and Ty Franck. They both live in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

But other, rather strange, people want the sketch for their own dubious purposes. Now Howard’s caught in the middle of a secret war that somehow involves a piece of paper that is much more than it seems. All the Bells on Earth: Walt runs a small catalog business out of his garage, and he has no notion of a demonic presence in his town until a package is mistakenly delivered to him. The contents are not the inexpensive Chinese toys and novelties he deals in. The nasty-looking pickled bluebird of happiness (“Best thing come to you. Speak any wish.”) piques Walt’s interest, and he keeps it when he rewraps the box and passes it on to the addressee: the one person in the world Walt loathes, his former friend Robert Argyle. But Walt’s keeping back the bluebird of happiness is the best thing that could have happened to Argyle—and the worst thing that could happen to Walt. What price happiness? If you have to ask …

  4. ‘In this disquieting novel, Lee explores how briskly the pleasures that we take for granted can vanish … Lee’s writing pulses with humour and an appreciation of the abject silliness of human beings … He writes with a needle, and with a short-story master’s eye for structure.’ – Guardian James Orr – husband, father, reliable employee and all round model citizen – wakes one morning to find himself quite transformed. There’s no way he can go into the office, and the doctors aren’t able to help. Waiting for the affliction to pass, he wanders the uniform streets and manicured lawns of his perfect suburban home. But there are cracks in the veneer. And it seems that in James himself there was only ever the thinnest of lines holding the monstrous at bay. The story of an everyday man who as become inexplicable to himself, The Alarming Palsy of James Orr introduces a writer of stupendous and disturbing talents.

  13. With an Introduction and Notes by Dr John Bowen, Department of English, University of Keele. Illustrations by Hablot K. Browne (Phiz). Martin Chuzzlewit is Charles Dickens’ comic masterpiece about which his biographer, Forster, noted that it marked a crucial phase in the author’s development as he began to delve deeper into the ‘springs of character’. Old Martin Chuzzlewit, tormented by the greed and selfishness of his family, effectively drives his grandson, young Martin, to undertake a voyage to America. It is a voyage which will have crucial consequences not only for young Martin, but also for his grandfather and his grandfather’s servant, Mary Graham with whom young Martin is in love. The commercial swindle of the Anglo-Bengalee company and the fraudulent Eden Land Corporation have a topicality in our own time. This strong sub-plot shows evidence of Dickens’ mastery of crime where characters such as the criminal Jonas Chuzzlewit, the old nurse Mrs Gamp, and the arch-hypocrite Seth Pecksniff are the equal to any in his other great novels. Generations of readers have also delighted in Dickens’ wonderful description of the London boarding-house – ‘Todgers’.
