  • BrontĂ«

    Manuela Santoni

    Paperback (Graphic Universe TM, May 4, 2021)
    Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë―faced with an ailing father and an alcoholic brother―pursue independence through art in this graphic vision of the lives of three legendary writers. Despite their family's stormy fortunes, the Brontë sisters resolved to write. To thwart the nineteenth century's double standards, they took the names of men, becoming the Bell brothers. Their works incited controversy and speculation, while at home, the sisters contended with the rages of Branwell Brontë, their self-destructive sibling. Manuela Santoni presents a time before Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall were known as literary masterpieces, when winds shook the Brontë house and determination held it together.
  • Beyond the Black Door

    A.M. Strickland

    Paperback (Square Fish, May 18, 2021)
    Beyond the Black Door is a young adult dark fantasy about unlocking the mysteries around and within us―no matter the cost ...Everyone has a soul. Some are beautiful gardens, others are frightening dungeons. Soulwalkers―like Kamai and her mother―can journey into other people's souls while they sleep. But no matter where Kamai visits, she sees the black door. It follows her into every soul, and her mother has told her to never, ever open it. When Kamai touches the door, it is warm and beating, like it has a pulse. When she puts her ear to it, she hears her own name whispered from the other side. And when tragedy strikes, Kamai does the unthinkable: she opens the door. A.M. Strickland's imaginative dark fantasy features court intrigue and romance, a main character coming to terms with her asexuality, and twists and turns as a seductive mystery unfolds that endangers not just Kamai's own soul, but the entire kingdom ...An Imprint Book“A beautiful tale of the dark mysteries that lurk in dreams, the heart, and the world. Strickland is a storyteller of both grace and power.” ―Richard Kadrey, New York Times–bestselling author of the Sandman Slim series

  • In the Service of Dragons 4: Dragons #4

    Robert Stanek

    Paperback (Reagent Press Echo, May 11, 2021)
    A dark shadow has been cast across the known lands. War sweeps through the divided nations of men and elves. There is great despair for the future of men, for if the greatest of all kingdoms can fail there can be no hope in tomorrow's tomorrow for any man in any land. Yet there is deeper despair amongst the elven peoples where for the first time in recorded history the elves of the West and East are at war with each other. In such a dark time, there can be little hope, and yet there are those who do hold out hope. Hope that the righteous and just will prevail. Hope that tomorrow's tomorrow will bring a better day. But turning back the tides is as unlikely as turning back time. What's done is done. The Alder King is dead, murdered by his enemies--the very enemies that have taken the heart of his kingdom and with it the kingdom itself. There can be no doubt that an enemy king has extended his reach and taken the prize he so coveted. Yet the thing he prized above all else--the thing that spurned him--has escaped his grasp. Other things have escaped his grasp as well. In those things lies the hope for a future without tyranny--a hope for the peoples of Ruin Mist; and to win freedom is to win the future.
