Publisher: Crown Publishing | Audible Studios (Audiobook)
Release date: November 14, 2017

Writer Andy Weir made a name for himself with his successful debut The Martian, a self-published novel about an astronaut stranded on Mars that went on to make the New York Times Best Seller list in 2014 when it was reprinted by Crown Publishing. The science fiction tale was a hit with readers, and was later adapted for the big screen with Matt Damon as the ill-fated spaceman. Now, Weir is back in the cosmos with his follow-up novel, Artemis, another scifi story, this time set in the near-future on Earth’s first and only colony on the Moon. For the audiobook edition from Audible Studios, actress Rosario Dawson (Marvel’s Daredevil, Sin City, Clerks II) provides the narration.

Hardcover

Dark Horse Books
Release Date: November 7, 2017

I couldn’t help but want to share this little bit of news with you folks! When Dark Horse Books dropped this into my inbox, it seemed like fate as I had just re-read Chuck Palahniuk‘s Invisible Monsters this past weekend. As fortuitous as it seems, Legacy: An Off-Color Novella For You To Color has apparently nothing to do with other Palahniuk novels. In fact, it’s more about telling a tale with audience participation!

William Shakespeare’s Star Wars Series Book 7
Hardcover | Kindle Edition | Audiobook
Written by Ian Doescher
Illustrations by Nicolas Delort
Inspired by George Lucas, William Shakespeare
Quirk Books
Release Date: October 3, 2017

Oh, Quirk Books, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. A seventh film necessitates a seventh adaptation in the vein of all things theatrical. I present to you, dearest reader, William Shakespeare’s The Force Doth Awaken: Star Wars Part the Seventh! Follow the tale of Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron whilst they struggle against the darkest of dark, the First Order. The tale is old to many, but the cycle begins anew as we begin a new trilogy of storytelling that explores the loss of heroes and the search for knowledge. Comedy and tragedy both play their parts in this play adapted by Ian Doescher, tugging upon both our hearts and emotions alike.

Neil Gaiman Neverwhere Illustrated by Chris Riddell

Neverwhere
Illustrated Edition – Hardcover
By Neil Gaiman
Illustrations by Chris Riddell
Publisher: William Morrow
Release date: September 26, 2017

You know how Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a fascinating read all on its own, but yet is elevated to another level when read with the accompanying illustrations by Sir John Tenniel? That’s the feeling you’ll get when you pick up the new edition of Neil Gaiman‘s novel Neverwhere, now rereleased in the United States with illustrations by Chris Riddell.

First released in 1996 as a novelization of Gaiman’s original script for the Neverwhere miniseries on BBC, the novel follows Richard Mayhew, an average man living a humdrum life in London led around by his controlling fiancee when his world is turned upside down after he rescues a mysterious young girl named Door. After his good deed renders him invisible and unable to go back to his normal life, Richard must find Door in London Below, a dark bizarre hidden underworld populated by angels, monsters, assassins, supernatural beings, and more.

A Column of Fire (Kingsbridge #3) by Ken Follett

A Column of Fire
Kingsbridge #3
Hardcover | Kindle | Audiobook
By Ken Follett
Publisher: Viking Books
Release date: September 12, 2017

Sometimes authors will surprise you. I speak, in this case, of Ken Follett and his upcoming novel, A Column Of Fire. As a voracious reader, it is seldom that I am without reading material, but I have recently stagnated with new books and writers. I’ve tried a plethora of unknown authors and their works, but none have sated my current needs, my hunger to read. Therefore, it was almost stunning when I was offered the chance to shine a spotlight on this book, one that I have not, as of yet, read. But there is more to the Kingsbridge series and its creator than one might think. I hold a special place in my heart for Follett that I will try to put into words.
