    The first English language publication of the work of Izumi Suzuki, a legend of Japanese science fiction and a countercultural icon.At turns nonchalantly hip and charmingly deranged, Suzuki's singular slant on speculative fiction would be echoed in countless later works, from Margaret Atwood and Harumi Murakami, to Black Mirror and Ex Machina. In these darkly playful and punky stories, the fantastical elements are always earthed by the universal pettiness of strife between the sexes, and the gritty reality of life on the lower rungs, whatever planet that ladder might be on.Translated by Polly Barton, Sam Bett, David Boyd, Daniel Joseph, Aiko Masubuchi, and Helen O'Horan.

    Voices of Dracula - His Master's...

    Starring Terry Molloy as Renfield.In writing Dracula, Bram Stoker created a universe full of rich characters, dark and foreboding locations, and a tangled web of loyalties, relationships and motivations. Despite the story being fictional -at least one hopes that’s the case - many elements within the story were reflections and analogies of the Stoker family and their history.A little over 120 years after the book’s original release, Bram’s great-grandnephew Dacre Stoker has teamed up with author Chris McAuley to create a series of short stories set within the StokerVerse, each narrated from the point of view of one of the characters we all know - or think we know - so well.In this episode, Renfield is drawn from the mouth of madness to attend the monster who now stalks through the streets of the city at the heart of the largest Empire on Earth…If you’re a fan of vampires - particularly those of a more gothic nature - then these brand-new adventures will surely appeal to you. With Dacre Stoker’s major contribution, these stories are the most significant addition to the official Dracula canon since Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 film Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

    The Sons of Mil long held the dream of the Island of Destiny close to their hearts. A dream perhaps, but to these restless, adventuring people it was a shining emerald prize to be won by those who were brave or foolhardy enough to sail to the very ends of the known world. For the Bard Amergin and his people that dream comes true. When they land safely on the shores of this enchanted isle, they know that they have won the favor of their gods. In joy, they begin to build their settlement. Soon it is clear that they are not alone in this green and pleasant land; their fellow inhabitants are the secretive Danu, a people who resonate power and mystery in abundance. As Amergin negotiates with the Danu so that both peoples may peacefully share the island's wealth, he sees their beauty, their wisdom, and their love for the land. And one more thing. Amergin's second sight shows him that the Danu are not human.At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
