The Doctor’s old friend and fellow Time Lord Professor Chronotis has retired to Cambridge University – where nobody will notice if he lives for centuries. But now he needs help from the Doctor, Romana and K9. When he left Gallifrey he took with him a few little souvenirs – most of them are harmless. But one of them is extremely dangerous.
The Worshipful and Ancient Law of Gallifrey isn’t a book for Time Tots. It is one of the Artefacts, dating from the dark days of Rassilon. It must not be allowed to fall into the wrong hands. The sinister Skagra most definitely has the wrong hands. He wants the book. He wants to discover the truth behind Shada. And he wants the Doctor’s mind…
Based on the scripts for the original television series by the legendary Douglas Adams, Shada retells an adventure that never made it to the screen.
This epic ‘lost’ adventure from 1979 features the Fourth Doctor and Romana as played by Tom Baker and Lalla Ward, written by Doctor Who’s then script editor Douglas Adams.

Jennifer L. Armentrout - Obsidian
Starting over sucks. When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, outhouses, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring. Until I spotted my hot neighbor with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up. And then he opened his mouth. Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens. The hot alien living next door marked me. You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and the mark he left on me has me lit up like Las Vegas strip to the bad guys. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. If I don't kill him first, that is. And then things got really bad…
Christopher Tolken - J. R. R. Tolkien - The Shaping of Middle-earth
THE HISTORY OF MIDDLE-EARTH Poems and prose, maps and chronologies, detours and diversions along the road to Middle-earth . . . Christopher Tolkien has gathered archival materials that his late father, J. R. R. Tolkien, used to create the world and the history behind his classic stories. THE EVOLUTION OF A WORLD This fourth volume of The History of Middle-earth presents early versions of those first tales, from the creation myth to the fall of Morgoth. Writings include a chronology of the events in Beleriand, the first Silmarillion map, and the only known description of the physical nature of Middle-earth's universe.

The Shaping of Middle-earth presents a solid framework by which to trace the development of the early lore of Middle-earth. It is a truly indispensable reference work for those familiar with the history of that endlessly beloved land--and fascinating reading for those just entering that world.

Douglas Adams - Galaxis Útikalauz stopposoknak - A világ leghosszabb trilógiája öt részben
Ez a történet a szörnyen ostoba csütörtökről és rendkívüli következményeiről szól, és arról, hogy miért sokkal biztonságosabb a világegyetem, ha van nálunk egy törülköző. Ez a történet emellett egy könyvről is szól, melynek címe: GALAXIS Útikalauz stopposoknak. Ez nem földi könyv, sosem adták ki a Földön, és a szörnyű katasztrófát megelőzően egyetlen földlakó se látta vagy hallott róla. A könyv mindazonáltal szerfelett figyelemreméltó. Valószínűleg ez a legfigyelemreméltóbb könyv, ami csak napvilágot látott a Kisgöncöl óriási kiadóhivatalainak gondozásában – bár a földlakók ezekről se hallottak. Ez a könyv nem csupán hallatlanul figyelemreméltó, hanem elképesztően sikeres is. Népszerűbb, mint a Mennyei Házi Mindentudó, jobban fogy, mint a Hatvanhárom További Figura Súlytalanság Esetére című illusztrált kiadvány, és ellentmondásosabb, mint Oolon Coluphid filozófiai bombaként robbanó trilógiája: a Hol Tévedett Isten, a Még Néhány Isten Legsúlyosabb Tévedéseiből és a Végül Is Kicsoda Ez Az Isten Egyáltalán? A Galaxis Külső Keleti Peremének néhány liberálisabb civilizációja számára a GALAXIS Útikalauz már kiszorította a hatalmas Encyclopaedia Galacticát, s egyedül tölti be az összes tudás és bölcsesség tárházának szerepét, mert noha sok benne a hézag, és tele van kétes, de legalábbis üvöltően pontatlan adattal, két fontos vonatkozásban felülmúlja kevésbé szárnyaló elődjét. Egyrészt némileg olcsóbb. Másrészt borítóján a következő szavak láthatók, szép nagy betűkkel szedve: NE ESS PÁNIKBA!

Nagaru Tanigawa - The Intrigues of Haruhi Suzumiya
It’s a new year, and Haruhi Suzumiya, the powerful (and pushy) leader of the SOS Brigade is actually…content. For once, she’s not seeking out time-traveling exploits, murder mysteries, or any other wild adventures that could lead to the destruction of the universe. Surprisingly, it’s Kyon, the most normal member of the SOS Brigade, who wants to shake things up. When Kyon discovers that something’s not right with the universe, it’s up to him, his pal (and secret crush) Mikuru, and the beautiful but stoic Nagato to head back to the past in order to save the future.

Nagaru Tanigawa - The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
It’s one week before Christmas Eve, and Haruhi and the SOS Brigade (a club for her high school’s strangest and most extraordinary students) are gearing up for holiday festivities. But just before the fun kicks off, Kyon, the only “normal” club member, wakes up in a weird alternate dimension — one in which Haruhi attends another school entirely; Nagato, the robot-like alien, is just an ordinary human; and Mikuru, the cute girl of Kyon’s dreams, doesn’t even recognize him. In other words, the SOS Brigade never existed. Kyon must head back in time to set things right again in this holiday tale reminiscent of A Christmas Carol and It’s a Wonderful Life. Time travel, alternate dimensions, and aliens, oh my! With Haruhi, there’s a surprise around every corner.

It even includes an intriguing murder mystery — when it comes to Haruhi, you never know what you’re going to get!
