Ender’s Shadow explores the stars in this all-new sequel to Shadow of the Giant

At the end of Shadow of the Giant, Bean flees to the stars with three of his children—who share the engineered genes that gave him both hyper-intelligence and a short, cruel physical life. The time dilation granted by the speed of their travel gives Earth’s scientists generations to seek a cure, to no avail. In time, they are forgotten. But the Delphikis are about to make a discovery that will let them save themselves, and perhaps all of humanity in days to come. For there in space lies a derelict Formic colony ship, and aboard it, they will find both death and wonders.

A zombie who yearns for a better life ends up falling in love—with a human—in this astonishingly original debut novel.


R is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He doesn’t enjoy killing people; he enjoys riding escalators and listening to Frank Sinatra. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.


Not just another zombie novel, Warm Bodies is funny, scary, and deeply moving.

Ugens Bog

CityofDragonsHC-lo Ugens bog er City of Dragons af Robin Hobb. Bogen er i paperback og koster kr. 80,00.

 

Dragons once again inhabit the world of the Rain Wilds. But unlike their ancestors, these creatures are half-formed, flightless, and unable to feed or care for themselves. Their only hope for survival is to return to Kelsingera, their ancient, mythical homeland. Helpless to make the dangerous trek along the toxic and inhospitable Rain Wild River alone, the dragons are accompanied by a rag-tag group of human keepers. Overcoming tragedy, hardship, fear, and mistrust, the dragons and humans form deep, abiding bonds that unite them in unexpected ways.


But those bonds will be severely tested during the journey's final days. The lost city can only be reached by flight-a test of endurance and skill beyond the strength of these stunted creatures. Desperate and losing hope, they must search the depths of their ancestral memories for the knowledge that might save them. But time is running out, not only for the dragons, but for their human keepers as well.

Signering med Joe Abercrombie (lidt forsinket post)…

Det er med stor glæde at Fantask i samarbejde med Science Fiction Bokhandeln i Malmø, byder Joe Abercrombie velkommen!


Tirsdag d. 9. oktober vil Abercrombie besøge Fantask, hvor han vil signere sine bøger fra kl.16 til kl.18.


Joe Abercrombie er elsket af sine mange fans, for sin bistre sorthumoristiske Fantasy setting og sine fantastiske skildringer af hans hovedpersoner, som i virkeligheden er alt andet end elskelige, men som man aligevel lidt efter lidt ender med at synes om.


I 2006 udkom den første bog i First Law trilogien, "The Blade Itself". I 2007 og 2008 udkom efterfølgerne "Before They Are Hanged" og "Last Argument of Kings". Siden da er det blevet til to standalone bøger, "Best Served Cold" og "The Heros", inden for samme univers.
D.18.oktober udkommer "Red Country", som er den tredje standalone bog i First Law universet. "The Blade Itself" blev i 2008 nomineret til en Campbell prisen og "Best Served Cold" vandt i 2010 Ravensheart prisen for bedste cover art.


Joe Abercrombie har studeret psykologi ved Manchester University. Desuden har han arbejdet en årrække som freelance film editor (gør det stadig fra tid til anden) på bla. prisudelinger, samt Coldplay koncerter.


Til dagligt bor Joe Abercrombie i Bath med sin kone og to døtre.

A Memory of Light og Sanderson…

0765325950.01.LZZZZZZZI lørdags skrev Brandon Sanderson på Twitter og sin blog at A Memory of Light, den sidste bog I Wheel of Time series, er færdig. Endelig.

I finished the final revision on A Memory of Light early in the morning Saturday, then sent it off to Team Jordan. And I was done. Team Jordan will handle the copyedits and proofreads; I might have a chime-in now and then on how a passage should be tweaked or how a continuity issue should be addressed, but essentially, my involvement as a writer in the Wheel of Time has come to an end.

Læs hele bloggen her.

 

Desuden har Irene Gallo, fra forlaget TOR, skrevet en artikel om hvordan coveret til den sidste Wheel of Time bog blev til. Tjek det på deres blog – det ser ret cool ud.
