4400 ​taken, 4400 returned. All were given startling new abilities. Now, if you are willing to risk it all, you too can be extraordinary. Is this what the future intended to ensure the survival of the human race? Promicin -- which kills half of those who dare to inject it and grants paranormal abilities to those who survive -- is spreading across the globe and threatening to plunge the entire world into chaos. One year has passed since Jordan Collier and his followers seized control of Seattle and renamed it Promise City. U.S. armed forces have surrounded Seattle, and each day brings Collier and his Promicin-Positive Movement closer to all-out war with the world's greatest military superpower. However, the real threats are the Marked -- agents from the future whose identities are encoded into body-hijacking nanites. They were sent back to thwart the efforts of the 4400. The last three surviving Marked lurk in the shadows, working in secret as they prepare to deliver a deathblow to the planet. Caught in the crossfire are NTAC agents Tom Baldwin and Diana Skouris. His son, Kyle, and her thirteen-year-old adopted daughter, Maia, are both more loyal to Jordan's movement than to them. And when the standoff between Collier and the U.S. military explodes into open conflict, Tom, Diana, and fellow agents wind up outnumbered and outgunned. In the end, the fate of all mankind will rest in the hands of one man: Tom Baldwin.

American ​Falls is the first major collection of short stories from Barry Gifford, master of the dark side of the American reality. These stories range widely in style and period, from the 1950s to the present, from absurdist exercises to romantic tales, from stories about childhood innocence to novellas of murder and revenge. In the title story, a Japanese-American motel operator chooses not give up a total stranger, a black man wanted for murder, when the police come searching for him. In "Room 584, The Starr Hotel," a man rants his outrage at an amorous couple in the room next door before he himself is arrested for having committed multiple murders. "The Unspoken" recounts the confessions of a man without a mouth who tells about the woman who loved him. And in this collection’s longest fiction, a novella called "The Lonely and the Lost," a small town’s talented and colorful inhabitants solve their problems as best they can until it comes time for the devil to reap what they have sown. Dark and light intermix in masterful chiaroscuro, dark becoming light, light revealing sinister or brooding complexity. No simple endings, only happy beginnings.

FIRST ​IN A NEW MILITARY SCIENCE FICTION SERIES “I was on a dead ship on an unknown planet with three trainees freshly graduated into the Imperial Service. I tried to look on the bright side.” He is the last to wake. The label on his sleeper pad identifies him as an admiral of the Evagardian Empire—a surprise as much to him as to the three recent recruits now under his command. He wears no uniform, and he is ignorant of military protocol, but the ship’s records confirm he is their superior officer. Whether he is an Evagardian admiral or a spy will be of little consequence if the crew members all end up dead. They are marooned on a strange world, their ship’s systems are failing one by one—and they are not alone.

A kérdés csak az, hogy vajon az idegenek és a kormányzat jelenti Serena számára a legnagyobb fenyegetést… vagy maga Hunter?

A ​perverted, surreal, violent, hilarious, and absolutely fucked-up parody of those Choose Your Own Adventure books you used to read as a kid. You're on the run from the cops and need to disappear somehow. Luckily you happen across a secret ocean in the middle of Wyoming. An undiscovered world of pirates and zombies that, according to maps, couldn't possibly exist. But here it is, a vast white sea that is made of some kind of greasy blubber substance instead of water. To escape, you must join the crew of one of the two ships at the dock. The first is a strange black cube-shaped vessel called The Eye World and the other is a totally punk rock pirate ship called The Rotten Sore. Which will you take? If you board The Eye World, turn to page 21. If you take The Rotten Sore, turn to page 22. But choose wisely! You could find yourself screwing demonic faeries and a cyborg dominatrix on top of a pile of treasure, or you could end up as lunch for a team of floating telepathic walrus heads. Ocean of Lard is a parody of that classic interactive fiction series that you adored as a kid, now filled to the brim with enough fucked up humor and perversions to satisfy you as an adult.

Az ​argentin fantasztikus irodalom jóformán fehér folt a zsáner rajongóinak térképén. Annyi talán még eszünkbe jut, hogy ez az ország adta nekünk Jorge Luis Borgest, Adolfo Bioy Casarest és Julio Cortázart, de ők, bármennyire nagy formátumú írók is, már a múlt. Milyen lehet Argentína fantasztikuma mostanság? Milyen kérdések foglalkoztatják az ottani szerzőket? Vajon van élet a mágikus realizmuson túl? Hogyan képzelik el ők a jövőt? Derűlátóak, vagy épp ellenkezőleg…? Reméljük, rajtunk kívül is sok a kíváncsi olvasó, mert mi most elővettük leghatalmasabb nagyítónkat, és bekukkantottunk a dél-amerikai kontinens szívébe. E borítók között 200 oldalon egzotikus álmok és lidércnyomások kavarognak, kalandok és gondolatok várnak arra, hogy minden érdeklődő megismerkedjen velük. Tizenhét novella, egy tanulmány, képregény, csupa-csupa új íz, vibráló szín, csábító aroma és titokzatos suttogás. Argentína, az ezüst és a tűz földje – ahogy csak az írók láttathatják. Szerzőink: Jorge Luis Borges * Eduardo Goligorsky * Fernando Sorrentino * Rogelio Ramos Signes * Angélica Gorodischer * Claudia de Bella * Ana María Shua * Leonardo Killian * Carlos Gardini * Sergio Gaut vel Hartman * Fabián César Casas * Néstor Darío Figueiras * Daniel Alcoba * Daniel Antokoletz * Daniel Frini * Héctor Ranea * Patricio G.

When ​Princess Cassia Rose fled her home world of Eturia to escape an arranged marriage to a bloodthirsty prince and prevent a coup, she had no idea her sudden departure would spark a war. Now after two years hiding as a lowly ship hand, she finally has the chance to return home and make peace, but not in the way she imagined. Shackled by bounty hunters, she is violently dragged back to account for her crimes. Her only solace is that the Banshee crew managed to evade capture, including Kane Arric, her best friend... with occasional benefits. Meanwhile, Kane and the rest of the crew of the Banshee, including Solara and Doran, are planning a desperate rescue mission. But when they arrive on Eturia, they find Cassia ruling her home planet, having imprisoned the rogue prince who would have overthrown her family. Deep down, Kane knows that Cassia can't rule her world and be with the bastard son of a business man, but he's also sure she returns his feelings, and that makes the circumstances all the more painful. When the outer realms are threatened by the dangerous Zhang mafia, Cassia, Kane and the rest of the Banshee crew rally to protect the population from widespread enslavement. The reunion forces Cassia to consider who her true family is and if she can live without the boy who has been there for her through thick and thin.

Egy tudós az élete kockáztatásával próbálja tudatni az uralkodóval, hogy a birodalom az összeomlás szélére került. Az egyik kereskedőház sarja ördögi összeesküvés nyomaira bukkan. Az Egyesülés új császárnője pedig veszélyes hazugságokkal és árulással kénytelen megküzdeni, miközben körülötte kitörni készül a forradalom. Míg mindhárman versenyt futnak az idővel, hogy megmentsék az emberi civilizációt, az ellenfeleiknek egészen más terveik vannak.

Freya ​was never meant to be queen. Twenty third in line to the throne, she never dreamed of a life in the palace, and would much rather research in her laboratory than participate in the intrigues of court. However, when an extravagant banquet turns deadly, and the king and his courtiers are poisoned, Freya suddenly finds herself on the throne. Freya may have survived the massacre, but she is far from safe. The nobles don’t respect her, her councillors want to control her, and with the mystery of who killed the king still unsolved, Freya knows that a single mistake could cost her the kingdom – and her life. Freya is determined to survive, and that means uncovering the murderers herself. Until then, she can’t trust anyone. Not her advisors. Not the king’s dashing and enigmatic illegitimate son. Not even her own father, who always wanted the best for her, but also wanted more power for himself.

In the midst of escalating tensions with Purists, people who oppose all forms of genetic modifications, Bridger and Alora learn about a bioweapon attack that could take place in the near future—an attack that will wipe out most people with genetic modifications, including all Talents, and that will lead to a world-wide war unless it’s stopped.
