In this #1 New York Times bestseller, Neil Gaiman returns to the territory of his masterpiece, American Gods (soon to be a Starz Original Series) to once again probe the dark recesses of the soul. God is dead. Meet the kids. Fat Charlie Nancy’s normal life ended the moment his father dropped dead on a Florida karaoke stage. Charlie didn’t know his dad was a god. And he never knew he had a brother. Now brother Spider is on his doorstep—about to make Fat Charlie’s life more interesting . . . and a lot more dangerous. “Thrilling, spooky, and wondrous.” —Denver Post “Awesomely inventive.… When you take the free-fall plunge into a Neil Gaiman book, anything can happen and anything invariably does.” —Entertainment Weekly “Delightful, funny and affecting.... A tall tale to end all tall tales.” —Washington Post Book World

The Story of Kullervo

The Story of Kullervo

“Shows how Finnish mythology and folk tales were instrumental to how Tolkien created his own legendarium.”—Boston Globe Kullervo, son of Kalervo, is perhaps the darkest and most tragic of all J.R.R. Tolkien’s characters. “Hapless Kullervo,” as Tolkien called him, is a luckless orphan boy with supernatural powers and a tragic destiny. Brought up in the homestead of the dark magician Untamo, who killed his father, kidnapped his mother, and tried three times to kill him when he was still a boy, Kullervo is alone save for the love of his twin sister, Wanōna, and the magical powers of the black dog Musti, who guards him. When Kullervo is sold into slavery he swears revenge on the magician, but he will learn that even at the point of vengeance there is no escape from the cruelest of fates. Tolkien himself said that The Story of Kullervo was “the germ of my attempt to write legends of my own,” and was “a major matter in the legends of the First Age.” Tolkien’s Kullervo is the clear ancestor of Túrin Turambar, the tragic incestuous hero of The Silmarillion. Published with the author’s drafts, notes, and lecture essays on its source work, the Kalevala, The Story of Kullervo is a foundation stone in the structure of Tolkien’s invented world. “A fascinating read.”—NPR

What are we? The Damned childer of caine? The grotesque lords of humanity? The pitiful wretches of eternal hell? We are vampires, and that is enough. I am a vampire, and that is far more than enough. I am that which must be feared, worshipped and adored. The world is mine -- now and forever. No one holds command over me. No man. No god. No prince. What is a claim of age for ones who are immortal? What is a claim of power for ones who defy death? Call your damnable hunt. We shall see whom I drag screaming to hell with me. The lavishly illustrated art book that accompanied the Vampire limited edition now available individually.

Years after Ed Chianese’s fateful trip into the Kefahuchi Tract, the tract has begun to expand and change in ways we never could have predicted—and, even more terrifying, parts of it have actually begun to fall to Earth, transforming the landscapes they encounter. Not far from Moneytown, in a neighborhood of underground clubs, body-modification chop shops, adolescent contract killers, and sexy streetwalking Monas, you’ll find the Saudade Event Site: a zone of strange geography, twisted physics, and frightening psychic onslaughts—not to mention the black and white cats that come pouring out at irregular intervals. Vic Serotonin is a “travel agent” into and out of Saudade. His latest client is a woman who’s nearly as unpredictable as the site itself—and maybe just as dangerous. She wants a tour just as a troubling new class of biological artifacts are leaving the site—living algorithms that are transforming the world outside in inexplicable and unsettling ways. Shadowed by a metaphysically inclined detective determined to shut his illegal operation down, Vic must make sense of a universe rapidly veering toward a virulent and viral form of chaos…and a humanity almost lost. From the Trade Paperback edition.

“Remarkable.… Gaiman has provided an enchanting contemporary interpretation of the Viking ethos.”—Lisa L. Hannett, Atlantic Neil Gaiman, long inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction, presents a bravura rendition of the Norse gods and their world from their origin though their upheaval in Ragnarok. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki—son of a giant—blood brother to Odin and a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. Gaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and delves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants. Through Gaiman’s deft and witty prose, these gods emerge with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to duping others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.

Publicado pela primeira vez em 1997, a partir do roteiro para uma série de TV, o sombrio e hipnótico Lugar Nenhum, primeiro romance de Neil Gaiman, anunciou a chegada de um grande nome da literatura contemporânea e se tornou um marco da fantasia urbana. Ao longo dos anos, diferentes versões foram publicadas nos Estados Unidos e na Inglaterra, e Neil Gaiman elaborou, a partir desse material, um texto que viesse a ser definitivo: esta edição preferida do autor. Em Lugar Nenhum, Richard Mayhew é um homem simples de coração bom que tem a vida transformada quando ajuda uma jovem que encontra ferida numa calçada. De um dia para o outro, Richard se torna invisível na Londres que sempre conheceu: não tem mais trabalho, não tem mais noiva, não tem mais casa. Para recuperar sua vida, ele se embrenha em um mundo que nunca sonhou existir, uma cidade que se abre nos esgotos e nos túneis subterrâneos: a chamada Londres de Baixo, em que personagens únicos e cenários mirabolantes fazem a Londres de Cima parecer uma mera paisagem cinza. Com muita ação, um bom humor peculiar e evocações sombrias de um mundo fantástico, Lugar Nenhum é leitura indispensável para os fãs de Neil Gaiman e um rico prazer para os que ainda não conhecem o autor.

É com palavras assim que Neil Gaiman apresenta Alerta de risco, uma rica coletânea de histórias de terror e de fantasmas, ficção científica e conto de fadas, fábula e poesia que exploram o poder da imaginação. Em “História de aventura”, Gaiman pondera sobre a morte e sobre como, ao morrer, as pessoas levam consigo suas histórias. No suspense “Caso de morte e mel”, ele nos presenteia com sua versão do mundo de Sherlock Holmes. Em “A Bela e a Adormecida”, duas conhecidas personagens de contos de fadas têm suas histórias entrelaçadas em uma releitura bastante original. “Hora nenhuma” é um conto muito especial sobre Doctor Who, escrita para o quinquagésimo aniversário da série de tevê, em 2013. E há também um conto escrito exclusivamente para esta coletânea: “Cão negro”, que revisita o mundo de Deuses americanos ao narrar um episódio que envolve Shadow Moon em um bar durante seu retorno aos Estados Unidos. Um escritor sofisticado cujo gênio criativo não tem paralelos, Gaiman hipnotiza com sua alquimia literária e nos transporta para as profundezas de uma terra desconhecida em que o fantástico se torna real e o cotidiano resplandece. Repleto de estranheza e terror, surpresa e diversão, Alerta de risco é um tesouro que conquista a mente e agita o coração do leitor.
