Anderson, Poul David Falkayn: Star Tradernew science fiction books

The Polesotechnic League of star traders was prospering, and Nicholas Van Rijn, its most flamboyant member, was prospering most of all as commerce flowed between the stars. But not all League members played fair when trading, nor did some of the non-human races of the galaxy object to dirty tricks. Van Rijn could not be everywhere, and relied on his representatives, foremost among them his young protege, David Falkayn, and the members of David's trader team: Adzel, a large dragon-like being who practiced Buddhism, and Chee-Lan, a brilliant but hot-tempered felinesque extraterrestrial.
This is the second volume in the first complete edition of Poul Anderson's Technic Civilization saga. And, after the three volumes chronicling the Polesotechnic League's rise and fall will come more volumes, telling of the rise of the Terran Empire and the adventures of Poul Anderson's other legendary character, Captain Sir Dominic Flandry. The first volume with the Van Rijn sequence is still available.

Baker, Kage The Empress of Marsnew science fiction books

"There were three Empresses of Mars. The first one was a bar at the Settlement.

The third one was the Queen of England."

Brodner, Steve (Editor) Artists Against the War

Based on the 2008 Society of Illustrators' exhibit "Artists Against the War," this book of the same name draws from the vibrant history of graphic protest to demonstrate the many ways that illustrators -- in editorial cartoons, comics, magazine illustrations, and elsewhere -- have reflected on the representations and misrepresentations of war, especially the war in Iraq. Works by Ralph Steadman, Norman Rockwell, Wendy Popp, Nathan Fox, Burt Silverman, Guy Billout, and other renowned illustrators not only bridge the gap between high art and illustration; they testify to the ability of images to examine complex issues in a way that connects with broad numbers of people. In doing so, they reveal how the world of commercial illustration offers a model for the advancement of contemporary fine art.

Butcher, Jim Backup: A Story of the Dresden Filesnew fantasy booksnew horror books

Let's get something clear right up front. I'm not Harry Dresden. Harry's a wizard. A genuine, honest-to-goodness wizard. He's Gandalf on crack and an IV of Red Bull, with a big leather coat and a .44 revolver in his pocket. He'll spit in the eye of gods and demons alike if he thinks it needs to be done, and to hell with the consequences--and yet somehow my little brother manages to remain a decent human being. I'll be damned if I know how. But then, I'll be damned regardless. My name is Thomas Raith, and I'm a monster. So begins "Backup" a twelve thousand word novelette set in Jim Butcher's ultra-popular Dresden Files series. This time Harry's in trouble he knows nothing about, and it's up to his big brother Thomas to track him down and solve those little life-threatening difficulties without his little brother even noticing.

Howard, Robert E And Their Memory Was a Bitter Tree: Queen of the Black Coast and Othersnew fantasy books

Edited by Tim Underwood. Illustrated by Brom and Frazetta. As one of the three most important American pulp fantasy authors of the 1930s (with Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith), Robert E. Howard captivated readers with his indomitable, battle-scarred barbarian hero Conan. Though Howard's life ended prematurely in 1936 at the age of 30, Conan lives on as one of the genre's most enduring icons. This beautifully designed collection contains nine essential Conan stories along with a full-length Conan novel. Also included is "The Hyborean Age," Howard's fascinating history of the raw, blood-drenched world Conan inhabited, an alternative Earth that preceded Tolkien's Middle Earth." And Their Memory Was a Bitter Tree" features a color map of this realm and an interior painting by cult artist Brom, along with a series of Frank Frazetta's seminal Conan paintings, appearing for the first time with the stories for which they were created.
