<b>The #1 <i>New York Times</i>–bestselling sequel to <i>A Discovery of Witches, </i>book two of the All Souls Trilogy—“as enchanting, engrossing, and impossible to put down as its predecessor” (<i>Miami Herald</i>).</b><br />  <br /><b>Look for the hit TV series “A Discovery of Witches” airing Sundays on AMC and BBC America, and streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder.</b><br /><br /> J. K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Anne Rice—only a few writers capture the imagination the way that Deborah Harkness has with her <i>New York Times</i>–bestselling All Souls trilogy. <i>A Discovery of Witches</i> introduces reluctant witch Diana Bishop, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont, and the battle for a lost, enchanted manuscript known as <i>Ashmole 782</i>.<br /><br /> Picking up from <i>A Discovery of Witches</i>’ cliffhanger ending, <i>Shadow of Night </i>takes Diana and Matthew on a trip through time to Elizabethan London, where they are plunged into a world of spies, magic, and a coterie of Matthew’s old friends, the School of Night. As the search for <i>Ashmole 782 </i>deepens and Diana seeks out a witch to tutor her in magic, the net of Matthew’s past tightens around them, and they embark on a very different—and vastly more dangerous—journey.

“Lean, relentless, and incandescent.” <b><b>—Colson Whitehead<br /><br />From the acclaimed author of <i>Stories of Your Life and Others—</i>the basis for the Academy Award –nominated film <i>Arrival</i>: a groundbreaking new collection of short fiction.</b><br /><br />"THE UNIVERSE BEGAN AS AN ENORMOUS BREATH BEING HELD."<br /></b><br />In these nine stunningly original, provocative, and poignant stories, Ted Chiang tackles some of humanity’s oldest questions along with new quandaries only he could imagine.<br /><br /> In “The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate,” a portal through time forces a fabric seller in ancient Baghdad to grapple with past mistakes and second chances. In “Exhalation,” an alien scientist makes a shocking discovery with ramifications that are literally universal. In “Anxiety Is the Dizziness of Freedom,” the ability to glimpse into alternate universes necessitates a radically new examination of the concepts of choice and free will.<br /><br /> Including stories being published for the first time as well as some of his rare and classic uncollected work, <i>Exhalation</i> is Ted Chiang at his best: profound, sympathetic—revelatory.

Meeting a dark Elf was unexpected. Kuro offered unconditional servitude in exchange for being saved, and Gothy was determined to make the most of it.<br /><br />Kuro had a single request: to warn the Queen that the King had broken their pact. Alvin agreed to take her to her world to report, wondering if it would be as easy as it sounded. Meanwhile, Kuro held up her end of the bargain, doing everything Gothy asked of her.<br /><br />Driving through the Svargax Gate, what they saw before them was not what any of them expected: two armies at war with each other, one composed of the dark Queen’s Elves, the other of the light King’s Elves.<br /><br />Feeling his simple plan go out the window, Alvin decided to find out if the King’s Elves could be reasoned with. Realizing it would be more difficult than he thought, Alvin wondered if he could reach some sort of accord with either side.<br /><br /><br />(This book contains adult situations, in all their horror and glory, including but not limited to: sex, abuse, drug use, and murder. It also contains graphic sex scenes, which portray elements of BDSM and harem. You’ve been warned.)<br />

Wes and Raider have found themselves in the thick of things once again. <br /><br />The KGR are hitting back relentlessly and, with Jessica’s group feared to be wiped out, the homestead falls into a quiet panic. Paranoia is running rampant, and rightly so: there’s a mole who has been working for Spider in their midst. <br /><br />After learning more about how the KGR operate, and where some of their caches are, Wes’s group goes on the offensive. Everything changes with Jess’s revelation; they know they have to keep the pressure up to keep their freedom. Even with Spider’s taunting and the knowledge that he has more moles planted within Wes’s inner circle, the group pushes on. They are outmanned, outgunned, and running low on supplies. <br /><br />It’s time for them to become even more unconventional. <br />Wes has to go back to his roots to come up with a plan to not only flush out the traitors, but to put a major hurt on their foes. The group has underestimated the ruthless nature of the KGR and is thinking they are finally getting ahead of their enemies, when Emily starts to unravel. <br /><br />There’s hope, but will that dark hope be enough for everyone to still survive? <br />

<b><b>THE BOOK BEHIND THE SECOND SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES, AN ORIGINAL SERIES NOW ON HBO.</b><br /><br /></b> A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK TWO<br /> <b> </b><br /> In this thrilling sequel to <i>A Game of Thrones, </i>George R. R. Martin has created a work of unsurpassed vision, power, and imagination. <i>A Clash of Kings </i>transports us to a world of revelry and revenge, wizardry and warfare unlike any we have ever experienced.<br />  <br /> A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel . . . and the coldest hearts. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.

<p>The classic collaboration from the internationally bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, soon to be an original series starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant.</p><p><strong>“<em>Good Omens</em> . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—<em>Washington Post</em><br /><br /></strong>According to <em>The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter</em>, <em>Witch</em> (the world's only <em>completely</em> accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.</p><p>So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.</p><p>And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .</p>
